DEKO Partitions Ltd. is one of the leading companies in Europe producing and supplying demountable systems, glazed partitioning solutions, and door systems. By 2013 the company recognized and defined a need for a robot helping construction workers in lifting, transporting and positioning heavy partitions on the construction sites. That is why in August 2013 DEKO Partitions and Blue Ocean Robotics initiated RoBi-X Partnership aiming at developing a glass partition mounting solution.
The Partnership resulted in creating WallMo 100, the innovative robot solution that improves the working environment for construction workers, and makes construction sites more effective. The WallMo 100 co-bot assists construction workers in handling heavy lifts and difficult transportation of partition walls.
A WallMo 100 and one operator can set up wall partition weighing up to 100 kg within 2-3 minutes instead of the current requirements for 2-3 construction workers in manual set up, and it only takes 30 minutes of training to operate the robot, says Lars Andersen, CEO at WallMo A/S.
