Transforming Construction with Autovol, ABB Robotics, and Prefabricated Modules

Machine automation technologies help build homes faster and more efficiently, according to ABB Robotics.

Autovol, an automated volumetric modular construction company, uses ABB robots to construct prefabricated modules for multifamily housing. They've found that this technology helps reduce on-site construction risk, material loss, and labor inefficiencies.

In addition to risk management, these robots help the process by doing the mundane, repeatable tasks that workers typically get tired of—with high precision and accuracy. According to Autovol, this tech has helped bring more young people into the industry, as they foresee this becoming a standard industry practice in the years to come.
