Robotically Controlled Assembly
Leverage your productivity regardless if your products are all identical or completely different. Combining planning data, robotic control and process visualisation, no additional work steps are necessary to move from your shop drawings directly to fabrication.
Compared to other sections in the construction industry, the wood industry is already highly advanced in the field of digital fabrication. The unique feature of the WoodFlex robot and its driving software, is the ability to perform unique large scale assembly tasks. Furthermore, the robot is directly driven from BTLx input data, the industry standard CAD interchange format for timber construction, framing and carpentry. The information of the CAD data is automatically translated into handling and processing steps for the robot, rendering any additional work steps obsolete. In this respect, software plays a crucial role in bridging the fabrication gap – an imperative to efficiently produce non-standard elements that otherwise would need to be individually programmed.
