This research paper explores the potential and practical applications of automation in the field of robotic construction, with a focus on metal pipe bending. The study investigates the use of automated robots as supplementary team members in construction projects, aiming to achieve NetZero construction by reducing on-site manufacturing and emphasizing on-site assembly for improved efficiency and safety. The integration of 3D printing technology into key structural components is also examined to address complex construction challenges.
In the modern era, the development of automated and robotic construction systems is essential for achieving competitive, market-driven, and rational building practices. These systems encompass various stages of the construction process, including the manufacturing of building materials, prefabrication of construction components, on-site construction, facility management, rehabilitation, and recycling. By leveraging automation and robotics, construction projects can achieve accelerated design and construction phases, high-quality standards, and cost-effectiveness.
Flexible automation, supported by computer-assisted planning, engineering, and construction management techniques, offers solutions to overcome challenges in the construction industry. The implementation of automated and robotic construction technology can effectively address the increasing demand for building projects, especially in regions with high labour costs. Automation has the potential to reduce the labour cost share by 40% or more, leading to increased productivity and year-round operation. Moreover, the adoption of robotic technology in construction enhances working conditions, promotes better health and safety standards, and requires advanced mechatronics knowledge and skills.
By optimizing construction processes through automation, shorter construction periods can be achieved, resulting in faster real estate availability and improved returns on investment. The integration of automation and robotics in construction is crucial for the rationalization of the industry and holds great potential for enhancing productivity, cost-efficiency, and overall project outcomes.
