BMTI® combines materials technology and design experience to manufacture highly sophisticated ROV/AUV buoyancy modules.

BMTI® offers the lowest pure syntactic foam densities on the market for depths from 1 000 to 10 000 m, for maximum vehicle buoyancy.

BMTI® also has extensive experience in the positioning and incorporation of metal inserts, and in protective skins and coatings.

BMTI® can provide both standard blocks (large size means limited bonding) or finished buoyancy modules.

ROV/AUV manufacturing process

BMTI® offers a state-of-the-art ROV buoyancy manufacturing process to ensure the best possible quality.

We select the best foam grade for you on the basis of your specifications (depth rating and uplift are generally required). We are different from other buoyancy providers because we have the largest range of off-the-shelf blocks, densities and grades, so we can quickly take care of any application.

Buoyancy assemblies are then machined to the exact shape, before being finished with our own-formulation protective PUR and painting, including the positioning of inserts for which we offer premium strengths.

We carry out quality controls and testing to a high standard throughout the manufacturing process, so as to guarantee the best product performance.
