The new robotization pilot project Hadrian X from Xella Technologie & Forschung is launched in cooperation with Fast Brick Robotics from Australia.
Every year, Xella Technologie- und Forschungsgesellschaft carries out over 7,000 tests to ensure the quality of our autoclaved aerated concrete, calcium silicate bricks, and mineral insulation boards, starting with the raw materials used and ending with the finished product.
Mini cranes are playing an increasingly important role in the assembly of large-format systems. In Poland, the custom-built Spider Crane is being used.
In order to develop fire-proof, safe products, Xella regularly conducts fire resistance tests
Large-format building is a trend for the future in the modern construction industry and has long been established at Xella. Cranes - especially mini cranes - provide assistance. They facilitate operations on tight construction sites, carry heavy loads, save time and, above all, labor.
At Xella in Belgium, the nearby Scheldt is now frequently used to transport Ytong or Silka blocks. For a sustainable construction project in the center of Brussels, the waterway was even decisive in winning the contract.
Trucks that are on the road to bring construction materials to the construction site are a familiar sight. But Ytong or Silka blocks that are transported by ship are less visible. In Belgium, however, this type of transport has been used more and more in recent years.
Whether autoclaved aerated concrete, calcium silicate units or mineral insulation boards - the Xella Group's product family is diverse. In order to be fit for the future, Xella is researching to align them to new markets.
What are the requirements for our products and how do we manage to meet them? An important component of quality assurance at Xella is the control of the raw materials which are used.
What can be used in the recycled end-product and what cannot? The decisive factor for our quality standard in the use of post-demolition autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is the sorting accuracy.
Xella's cooperation with Otto Dörner and Holcim shows how autoclaved aerated concrete residues are processed and reused in the manufacture of new products.
As one of the few European companies in the building materials industry, Xella operates its own technology and research company (Technologie- und Forschungsgesellschaft / T&F) near Berlin.
Creative solution and intelligent cooperation between the crafts saves a lot of time during the construction of the 23-storey residential tower "De Hoge Regentesse" and masters logistical challenges of the small, central building site in The Hague.
Reach the finished room height with only one stroke? This is possible with the storey-high Ytong System Wall Elements (SWE).
Large-format wall elements, an app for home builders and a concept for recycling management win the innovation award
In 2007 Ursa started the production of blow-in wool and took the first step into the market of blow-in insulation.
Xella presented itself and the strong brands under its roof as an innovation leader at the BAU 2019 in Munich
This year's Innovation Award was presented at the Xella Management Conference.
Xella regularly monitors and publishes developments regarding current trends that affect the construction industry, the company or the business model.
