Fastbrick Robotics has just released a new animation video of the Hadrian X, Australia’s next generation one-armed brick laying robot.The simulated commercial prototype acts like a giant 3D printer to build a house.
The Hadrian X is being built to do in an hour what would take two human bricklayers almost a day to complete. The truck-mounted, fully-automated bricklaying machine can lay up to 1,000 standard bricks an hour from a 30 metre boom.
“We actually print a house, layer by layer … almost as if it’s growing out of the ground,” says Fastbrick chief technical officer Mark Pivac.
The vision at Fastbrick Robotics is to create a machine which can complete the brickwork of a home in three days at a lower cost and higher quality than traditional methods.
