Superior Development Robotics (ACR) launched a robotic that may raise, carry and place rebar known as IronBOT.
The robotic, which is ACR’s second product providing, can raise as much as 5,000-lb bundles of rebar in a transverse or longitudinal orientation with no need any heavy lifting from crew members.
IronBOT can work alongside ACR’s first robotic, TyBOT, which may self-tie horizontal rebar intersections. TyBOT has an energetic tie price of over 1,100 ties and hour.
IronBOT accomplished its inaugural venture alongside TyBOT in February on the Port St. Lucie West Boulevard Bridge in Port St. Lucie, FL. The robots accomplished the venture alongside Shelby Erectors, a development firm that focuses on constructing bridges.
The group initially estimated that rebar set up would take 14 days, however when augmenting Shelby’s crew with the BOT bundle the identical quantity of labor took solely seven days. Through the pilot venture, IronBOT locations 147,032 lb of rebar, and TyBOT accomplished 58,068 ties over 6.5 manufacturing shifts.
“We had been excited to have the ability to have IronBOT and TyBOT work collectively alongside our crews on this venture. We had been impressed that we might slash our rebar set up schedule in half. We’re actively searching for new initiatives to include the BOT Bundle in our operations,” Jack Nix, COO of Shelby Erectors, Inc, stated.

“We’re assured the mix of TyBOT and IronBOT generates a disruptive expertise, which means the time and price financial savings are so important on a job that it’ll disrupt the way in which our trade installs reinforcing metal,” Stephen Muck, Founder and Government Chairman of Superior Development Robotics, stated.
ACR additionally introduced that Brayman Development and Benefit Metal & Development are the one contractors licensed to offer the BOT Bundle resolution as a part of the corporate’s new Licensed Innovator Program. ACR’s Licensed Innovators have devoted crews which have gone by hands-on coaching on find out how to optimize operations alongside the BOT Bundle and incorporate the expertise of their set up pricing.
