Robotics developer FBR and its partners have constructed four Mexican-style houses as the company widens adoption of its Hadrian X bricklaying robot systems.
As part of a pilot programme agreement with Mexico’s GP Vivienda, FBR constructed four Mexican-style two-bedroom, one-bathroom house structures (pictured) using the Hadrian X at FBR’s Perth premises, with each structure taking less than one standard shift on average to complete.
Two of the structures were built indoors at FBR’s facility, with the remaining two structures built simultaneously side by side outdoors (see video below) to emulate the most economical operating process for a Hadrian X in a residential development in Mexico.
The Hadrian X robot selects and transports each block to the work space, before each block is laid individually by the robot arm.
Having completed the pilot programme stage, FBR and GP Vivienda intend to progress to build additional Mexican-style structures using the Hadrian X with blocks produced in Mexico.
