TyBOT® Goes Off the Rails

New Rail-Free Deployment Method Expands Opportunities for Construction

Pittsburgh PA: In response to feedback from the field, Advanced Construction Robotics (ACR) announces a new deployment method for TyBOT, called edge form bogies, a significant enhancement that simplifies and speeds up on-site deployment. This unique design eliminates the need for screed rail, a prerequisite previously required for TyBOT deployment. With TyBOT freed from the screed rail, the solution becomes available to more contractors who previously could not benefit from the tech. "At Advanced Construction Robotics, we believe that true innovation in infrastructure comes from listening to those working with our solutions in the field. Their feedback is invaluable, influencing our product roadmaps and driving us to develop problem-solving solutions that revolutionize construction. Together, we are shaping the future of infrastructure," said ACR Founder and Executive Chairman, Stephen Muck.

TyBOT has traditionally relied on installed screed rail or a porta-rail system that simulates screed rail for successful deployment. This requirement could sometimes be a limiting factor in locations where the screed rail was not readily available. The new bogies ride directly on the timber framing, called edge forms, that is erected on job sites to support concrete pouring. TyBOT's edge form bogies are adjustable, compatible with 2x4" to 2x8" edge form caps, and can handle any existing obstructions such as double-headed nails.

With edge forms always available and in place, TyBOT can work on a wider range of projects, providing contractors with the flexibility and efficiency they need. This new deployment method eliminates the need for pre-installation of screed rail, allowing contractors to maximize their resources and accelerate project timelines.

"By redesigning how TyBOT deploys on construction sites, we've created an opportunity for contractors to conduct deck operations more rapidly and efficiently than ever before," said ACR President and CEO, Danielle Proctor. "We are excited to release edge form bogies because it provides our clients a more flexible and accessible solution, increasing TyBOT's viability for a wider range of projects."
