Introduction to Semi-Automated Mason (SAM) In Masonry Design and Construction
Chris Raddell & Scott Peters, Construction Robotics
This program provides an introduction to new software for designing masonry walls on bond and the ability to create non-standard patterns to be used with new technology like SAM the Semi-Automated Mason, a bricklaying robot for onsite masonry construction. Immediately following the seminar, SAM will demonstrate its bricklaying capabilities driven by the technology demonstrated during the classroom presentation.
1. Identify current challenges facing the masonry industry.
2. Understand the importance of building masonry walls on bond and the impact to designs not done on bond.
3. Understand the impact of SAM the bricklaying robot and how this technology will allow for new and unique design patterns.
4. Understand how SAM100 positively impacts workers health and safety in the bricklaying industry.
