Xella T&F launches pilot project cooperation
The new robotization pilot project Hadrian X from Xella Technologie & Forschung is launched in cooperation with Fast Brick Robotics from Australia.
Xella Technologie- und Forschungsgesellschaft mbH (T&F) has signed a contract with the Australian company Fastbrick Robotics Limited (FBR), a specialist in robot technology, for a pilot project to construct buildings on FBR's premises. For this pilot project, the Hadrian X® robot will be used to build masonry using Xella building products Ytong autoclaved aerated concrete and Silka calcium silicate blocks.
The goal of the pilot program, which includes the construction of at least two buildings on FBR's site using the Hadrian X® brick robot, is to enable FBR and Xella to develop a practical understanding of each other's capabilities.
Xella will supply a series of AAC and CSU blocks to FBR. FBR designs and builds dynamically stabilized robots to meet demand in today's market. These robots are designed for outdoor use with the company's central Dynamic Stabilization Technology ® (DST®). With the start of the new project, the Hadrian X® will in future be used to assemble Ytong and Silka on the premises of FBR Australia
