Robot takes strain out of bricklaying
By Mike Hayes15 September 2021
Construction Robotics has developed a solution for lifting heavy materials up to 70kg.
The Mule is a lifting machine that takes the strain out of the physically demanding task of bricklaying.
With the Mule lifting two blocks, each of around 810mm in length, a human bricklayer can then guide them into position, without having to lift the blocks at all.
Zack Zuidema, VP of the US-based firm Jimmy’z Masonry said using the equipment on site had led to reduced fatigue and injury among workers and increased efficiency.
