This Robot Sets Tile Twice as Fast as a Human

 

And it can spread mortar too!

 

The robot in this video was developed in Singapore by Future Cities Laboratory in collaboration with Swiss firm ROB Technologies AG.

It can set field tile twice as fast as a human, though it requires a human tender to mix mortar, grout, and cut and install anything that is not a full tile.

It is not shown in the video, but the suction cup attachment can be removed and replaced with one that extrudes mortar onto the substrate. There would typically be at least two robots on site, one to spread mortar and the other to set tile.

It makes sense that this would be used on commercial projects with vast expanses of tile; its developers expect it to be used for residential work too.

Teach to the robot to follow ANSI and TCNA guidelines then we can talk.

Seems like an easy programming chore, Mike. And with AI, you'll be able to talk to the robot directly.

Any cost estimates for such a machine?

 

When will this be for sale?

It isn't always shown in the video, but the suction cup attachment can be eliminated and changed with one which extrudes mortar onto the substrate. There could commonly be at the least two robots on a web page, one to spread mortar and the alternative to set tile.It makes feel that this would be used on industrial tasks with great expanses of tile; its builders expect it to be used for residential paintings too pay someone to do my essay for me.
