Revolutionize Construction Efficiency with IronBOT by ACR!

Transforming Construction Efficiency with IronBOT by ACR!

Advanced Construction Robotics (ACR) has introduced the latest addition to its lineup of groundbreaking solutions: IronBOT, a versatile robotic marvel engineered to revolutionize the handling of rebar in construction projects.

IronBOT, ACR's second robotic offering, is designed to effortlessly lift, carry, and place rebar bundles weighing up to 5,000 lbs, eliminating the need for strenuous manual labor by crew members. Whether in a transverse or longitudinal orientation, IronBOT delivers exceptional performance, streamlining rebar installation processes with precision and efficiency.

Partnering seamlessly with ACR's flagship robotic solution, TyBOT, IronBOT offers a comprehensive solution for rebar handling and installation. While TyBOT excels in self-tying horizontal rebar intersections at a remarkable rate of over 1,100 ties per hour, IronBOT tackles the heavy lifting with ease, ensuring seamless coordination and enhanced productivity on construction sites.

IronBOT made its debut alongside TyBOT in February during a landmark project on the Port St. Lucie West Boulevard Bridge in Port St. Lucie, FL. Teaming up with Shelby Erectors, a leading construction firm specializing in bridge construction, IronBOT and TyBOT showcased their capabilities in real-world construction scenarios.

Initially projected to require 14 days for completion, the rebar installation was successfully accomplished in just seven days with the assistance of IronBOT and TyBOT. During the pilot project, IronBOT efficiently placed 147,032 lbs of rebar, while TyBOT completed an impressive 58,068 ties over 6.5 production shifts.

Jack Nix, COO of Shelby Erectors, Inc., expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, "We were thrilled to witness IronBOT and TyBOT working seamlessly alongside our crews. The significant reduction in our rebar installation schedule exceeded our expectations. We are actively seeking new projects to incorporate the BOT Bundle into our operations."
