1. The slowest way possible to build panels instead of using a material feeder. Robotic arms are slow and should only be used for intricate movements that are done a few times or for station transfers. If you put a stack of wood down at the end of the panel building track you can use a set of wheels to feed them one at a time onto the track. These systems have been used in lumber mills for 100+ years. Any time you have to place a straight beam you could have a feeder conveyor that drops them into place.

  2. would seem like this has a lot of potential, particularly if the walls could be done, sheet rocked/primed, insulated, electrical installed, sheathed, and siding. all by machines, leaving it to be placed on site (how to bolt walls down if its all sheathed?), small connections and final finishes done on site. would think that shaves at least a month off on site construction timelines, plus walls could be slung into place using machine and just two workers in many cases. add truss systems, maybe some other areas of pre-fabrication (plumbing, roofing, etc.), to produce kit homes. the tipping point probably comes when 90% of the walls could be completed, and cost is lowered by automation and repeatability.

  3. They should have installed the vinyl or sheet goods prior to stacking the interior walls to save labor time

  4. Impressive system but out of date material. Composite and reinforced fibreglass are today’s solution.
