How can you integrate TyBot into your project?

01

Bid Phase

Incorporating construction technology into your bids provides your company with a unique competitive advantage. TyBot and IronBot can help with leveraging cost savings to lower bids or expand capacity for bidding on larger projects. Our sales team can provide you with a detailed quote that is customized to fit your project's demands.

02

Mid-Project

Labor uncertainty across the economy has called into question the ability of general or specialty sub-contractors to consistently finish projects on schedule. In response to this, TyBot can be quickly and easily deployed anywhere in the USA to augment construction crews and save time on the schedule. This robotic tool takes less than half of a shift to set up without any special tools or pre-mapping required.

03

Schedule Relief

General and Specialty Contractors can find themselves behind schedule. TyBot provides the opportunity to bounce back from unexpected delays.  Adding TyBot to your crew can increase capacity and accelerate production rates.

04

Multi-Site Projects

If you have multiple projects in multiple locations, our sales team can help you build a schedule to ensure that your productivity across projects is maximized.  A single TyBot unit can travel wherever it is needed to fill a labor gap or provide extra rebar installation capacity.

Frequently asked questions

How much pre-programming of rebar dimensions is required for TyBot®?


None! TyBot is designed to operate autonomously without any pre-programming required. It self-finds the reinforcing steel intersections, it self-locates the tie module over the intersection, and then self-ties it.




Does the Robot Supervisor remotely operate TyBot®?


No. The Robot Supervisor does not remotely guide TyBot to the correct locations. TyBot performs this function itself. The Robot Supervisor supervises TyBot and monitors its performance. The Robot Supervisor does have the ability to manually override the autonomous operation of TyBot in special circumstances.




What prep work is required before TyBot® can be assembled on the bridge?


TyBot easily fits within existing bridge construction infrastructure. The unit uses the screed rail supports installed for the deck concrete finishing machine, which are required to be in place prior to TyBot arriving to the jobsite.




Can TyBot® operate at night?


TyBot can tie intersections day or night, making it a flexible solution to meet your scheduling needs.




What kind of training do I need?


To ensure that TyBot operates to our highest standards, we require our Robot Supervisors to undergo a thorough and rigorous training period before supervising the robot in production work. A Robot Supervisor will be provided with all leased TyBot units. A three day training is provided with purchased TyBot units.




What should I do if a part needs to be replaced on my leased TyBot?


Nothing! Our on-site Robot Supervisor have been trained and will be equipped to handle most maintenance and repair issues.




Can TyBot® tie alternating-intersection patterns as well as all-intersection patterns?


TyBot is capable of tying alternating-intersection patterns as well as all-intersection patterns, meeting the specifications of multiple project owners and DOT's.




How much rebar must be laid prior to TyBot® operating?


This value depends upon the spacing of the rebar and how many hours the TyBot will operate per shift. For example, in 8 hours, TyBot can tie approximately 2,504 sf of an 8” x 8” mat. You will want to be sure that your crews have placed enough rebar to be at least one shift ahead of TyBot or 2,504 sf in this case. This will ensure that TyBot can work freely and avoid stoppages.




How can I lease or purchase a TyBot®?

At TyBot, LLC, our goal is to grow our team with talented and creative thinkers who are driven to make a difference in the industry. If you are seeking to explore a potential opportunity at TyBot, LLC, visit our Careers page to learn more.




How long does it take to assemble TyBot®?


TyBot can be assembled in half a shift or less with only two laborers and a crane operator (approximately 1 to 4 hours depending on job width).




How am I able to transport TyBot®?


Mobilization is included in the lease pricing and handled by trained TyBot employees. TyBot is transported via a heavy duty pick-up truck (F250 or equivalent) and a 40' trailer. This arrangement supports up to a 66' wide bridge. Larger bridges up to 100' wide will require additional loads to transport additional TyBot extension sections.




How many people need to be on site for TyBot® to run?


One! TyBot only requires one Robot Supervisor who monitors performance, reloads the tie wire spool when necessary, and ensures the robot does not impede on your safety protocol.




How fast is TyBot®?


TyBot ties up to 1,000 ties per hours. The speed or square foot per shift that TyBot can tie will depend on the bar spacing and percentage of intersections needing to be tied. Our sales team will help estimate the specifics of your upcoming job.
