The monotonous and tiresome work of a bricklayer, inin the near future it can be transferred to the shoulders of mechanical assistants. Fastbrick Robotics developers from Australia continue to improve their mason robot and have brought the speed of laying bricks to the average speed with which a professional builder works.
For the first time about the Fastbrick Robotics projectIt is known back in 2015, when the first Hadrian X robot was shown. Since then, there has been a continuous improvement in the design and algorithm of the machine to increase its productivity. More recently, Hadrian X "worked" with a laying speed of 85 bricks per hour, by April, developers were able to increase this figure to 150, and now they are claiming that they have reached a laying speed of 200 bricks per hour.
Competing companies demonstrated robots,which can carry up to 1000 bricks, however, these are models designed specifically to serve as a loader or stacker on brick production lines. Hadrian X robot performs the work of the builder, fully creating walls of bricks using glue or cement mortar.
Hadrian X robot is given the technical task withusing a 3D CAD model. When working, a mechanical bricklayer can change the type and size of bricks, and the routing tells the robot where to leave space for openings and laying engineering services.
The name of the robot was given to the emperor Hadrian.created the Adrian Wall in Great Britain, which protected Roman settlements from the raids of the wild tribes of the Picts and Brigants, who lived at the beginning of our era in the north of England. Currently, Hadrian X is able to perform fairly simple tasks for the construction of straight sections of the walls. However, the machine can work tirelessly 24 hours a day and can replace the work of a bricklayer, which is estimated at up to $ 100 per square meter.
