Construction robot painter for sanding, spray filler and spray painting

Despite being one of the world's largest markets, the construction industry has historically been slow to embrace digitization and automation. However, this trend is poised for a shift due to significant challenges the sector faces. With challenges due to a tough market- and financial environment, the industry is also grappling with a shortage of skilled labor.

A significant portion of the current workforce is nearing retirement, with Yahoo Finance and the Home Builders Institute (HBI) projecting a need for an additional 2.2 million construction workers in the U.S. alone—a scenario mirrored in other countries and sectors. The industry's appeal to new talent is hindered by the perception of construction work as unhealthy, hazardous, and physically strenuous. Moreover, there's a growing demand for enhanced documentation quality, particularly concerning sustainability.

Enter the ROBOSURF robot painter, a solution designed to address these critical issues by alleviating labor shortages, reducing the physical toll on workers, and meeting the increasing standards for sustainability documentation.

Robosurf Wizard ProLine X2 Construction Robot for Surface Finishing and Spray Applications

The Wizard ProLine Series

ROBOSURF embarked on an initial testing phase to evaluate the efficiency and quality of sanding and spray applications for filler and paint. This R&D stage provided crucial insights into the integration of new technology within the construction trades sector, highlighting both effective strategies and approaches to avoid. Unlike other bulky and cumbersome robot models, the Wizard series presented logistical challenges. However, these tests were vital in establishing quality and speed benchmarks in collaboration with industry partners, setting the stage for future development steps.

The next generation of autonomous mobile construction robots is yet to come

ROBOSURF is kicking off the test phase for the next generation of its autnomous mobile construciton robots with key stakeholders of the construction industry. Key aspects include:

  • modularity
  • new arm technology 
  • driveablility
  • focus on sanding
  • new spray application development
  • drilling tool integration
