HP’s new SitePrint Robot solution can revolutionize the construction layout process as it can significantly speed up construction work by autonomously printing guidelines directly from blueprints onto the floor.
According to HP the new SitePrint Robot is a super fast layout tool that’s rugged, roadworthy, and extremely accurate.
Starting September 2022, SitePrint Robot will be available to customers in North America courtesy of the Early Access Program.
Daniel Martínez, VP and General Manager, HP Large Format Printing said, “Technology adoption and increased digitization can help construction firms realize productivity gains. HP has played a key role in bridging digital and physical worlds with print solutions for architects and engineers over the last thirty years. With HP SitePrint, we’re making it faster and easier than ever for construction professionals to bring an idea to life on-site while also providing layout accuracy and reducing costs derived from reworks.”
Sometimes the demands of construction are not met, as they are always growing. This autonomous robot will help seize this opportunity and increase construction competitiveness.
Small but Powerful
Don’t let the size of the HP’s new SitePrint Robot deceive you, created for autonomous operation, it can avoid obstacle avoidance, and can boost site layout productivity. You can collect more data from the digital model with its text printing capabilities to the construction site. This facilitates communication amongst construction experts. The robot can print lines and complicated objects with pinpoint accuracy and reliable repetition.
HP, an IT company headquartered in Palo Alto, California, develops personal computers (PCs), printers and 3D printing solutions.
The split was structured so that Hewlett-Packard changed its name to HP Inc. in 2015 and spun off Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a new publicly traded company.
HP became HP Inc. as of 2015, and decided to combine their assets into one company: Hewlett-Packard. They wanted to retain the old company’s assets, and therefore still keep the shares at their previous price.
Albert Zulps, Director of Emerging Technology at Skanska – a global construction and development company currently utilizing HP SitePrint on two prominent US projects said, “The existing manual layout process can be slow and labor intensive. Despite being done by specialists, there is always the risk of human error, which can result in costly reworks,” said Albert Zulps, Director of Emerging Technology at Skanska – a global construction and development company currently utilizing HP SitePrint on two prominent US projects.
He further added, “Layout experts are a scarce resource who add a lot of value in terms of planning and strategy, but often end up dedicating most of their time to manual execution.” HP SitePrint allows for a faster process, giving designers more time to focus on other tasks.
