Canadian company Creepex is about to deliver the first mechanic creeper specially designed to work and inspect the belly of Falcon 9 rockets produced by SpaceX.
After trying the BodyGuard creeper–a patented Creepex product presented at the SEMA show in Las Vegas and presented by TV host Jay Leno on Jay Leno’sGarage–a SpaceX engineer has contacted the Quebec City based company to develop a specially designed and engineered creeper enabling their engineers to work and inspect comfortably the belly of their Falcon 9 rockets.
While the code name of the new device is URM (Under Rocket Mobility), its manoeuvrability and ease of adjustment make it fit for many other applications such as: aeronautical, trains and subways, machinery, tunnel boring machines as well as any other industry that requires very precise and secure working positions.
Founded in 2011 by Erik Sieb and Andre Wagner, Creepex Inc. designs, manufactures and distributes innovative garage equipment, mainly mechanic creepers and its flagship model, the FastBack.
