Automatically sealing construction components by robot

B.T. innovation GmbH, 39116 Magdeburg, Germany

Industrial construction methods enable work processes to be streamlined for increased cost efficiency, quality and productivity. Industrial prefabrication has become well established in concrete and timber construction processes but, unlike vehicle manufacturing, the area of sealing has not (yet) been integrated into such methods. B.T. innovation GmbH and Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF have collaborated in developing an automated component sealing system using industrial robots that can be integrated into the production of modular houses and prefabricated components. The automation for the sealing process developed in their PrefabElast cooperation project can also be implemented and exploited practically in intermediate steps in production facilities.
