  • Patent number: 11274948
    Abstract: A facade gantry allows for close inspection of a facade using remotely operated cameras, probes, and/or sampling devices. These devices are located in a housing that is positioned in front of a facade by a system of cables, from which it is suspended, that allow for movement in any direction in a plane. Two cables are attached to the housing containing the sensors and tools and are wound onto two separate spools located on the roof at the vertical boundaries of the inspection area. By winding and unwinding these spools, the housing can be raised, lowered, and moved from side to side. The invention further has an optional “shed” located on the ground that protects pedestrians in the case of a suspension system failure. The shed moves to maintain a position directly under the housing. The gantry optionally allows for repair of the facade by using remotely operated repair tools.

  • Patent number: 10626562
    Abstract: A concrete patching robot has a multi-axis robotic manipulator mounted on a powered, movable, platform that can be raised and lowered to access the underside of structures that may be substantial distances above the ground, for example, the underside of an elevated highway. The entire assembly is maneuverable under the work area and the platform may be raised to access the concrete. Once the work area is in reach of the arm, the device is able to use numerous tools to complete essential steps to repair the concrete.

  • Patent number: 10619363
    Abstract: In particular embodiments, an on-site drywall fabrication system is configured to perform on-site construction of drywall (e.g., plasterboard, wallboard, gypsum panel, sheet rock, gypsum board, etc.) over at least a portion of a framed (e.g., studded) wall (e.g., comprising one or more substantially vertical studs). In particular embodiments, the on-site drywall fabrication system is configured to utilize one or more drywall installation robots to fabricate drywall substantially directly on a framed wall. Generally speaking, the on-site drywall fabrication system may be configured to generate a substantially continuous, seamless drywall panel that extends along a particular portion of a wall. The system may, for example, utilize one or more sprayers that are configured to spray a suitable fill material between a first wall material (e.g., a first wall material applied via the first wall material spool) and a second wall material.

  • Patent number: 10538417
    Abstract: A construction beam robot, such as for steel erection, comprises a pair of thrust producing fans located at either end of a beam to be installed. The fans' thrust and direction of thrust is controlled and/or coordinated by a computer with custom control software. By altering the direction and amount of thrust, the orientation of the beam is controlled. Workers on site who possess a controller are able to rotate or fix the orientation of a beam from a distance and do so wirelessly.

  • Patent number: 10486182
    Abstract: A shroud device (e.g., a paint sprayer shroud), according to particular embodiments, is configured to capture overspray (e.g., paint or other material that is applied to an unintended location) and/or increase an amount of paint that is delivered to a desired location (e.g., on a wall being painted, etc.). In various embodiments, the shroud device is configured for use in conjunction with a sprayer (e.g., such as any suitable paint spryer or other sprayer). In particular embodiments, the shroud device may comprise a blower portion and a suction portion that work in conjunction to recirculate overspray into a sprayer flow and onto a medium, for example, via a recirculation shroud.
