Beyond Lifting Glass: The Versatility of Ergo Robotic Machines

 

On this episode of the MarketScale Engineering & Construction Podcast, Alan Nudi, Director of Sales and Marketing at Ergo Robotic Solutions joined host James Kent for a discussion on Ergo’s machines, and how they’re not just for lifting large sheets of glass. These machines can be a builder’s best friend for a lot of different types of materials.

Nudi began the episode with a brief overview of his company, Ergo Robotic Solutions, and what these machines are typically used for, and the types of glass materials they lift. But quickly the conversation shifted to the many other types of materials these customizable machines can lift. From large pieces of curved glass, textured glass, sheet metal, concrete walls, plywood, and sheet rock. Nudi described the various uses for the company’s machinery, and how they tackle lifting these materials.

Throughout the discussion, Nudi provided examples of building situations where these machines can make the impossible possible and save time which lowers constructions costs. One item people may be surprised to learn these machines can lift, are large pieces of rigid construction foam. This material can be cumbersome to lift, yet Ergo’s machines make it easy. One person can operate the machine and lift huge piles of foam, instead of several people manually doing it.

While the majority of these lifting scenarios involve the suction aspects of ergo robotic machines, Nudi explained that the customizable nature of the machines have allowed builders to use them for lifting projects that required different ways of handling the material. An example Nudi mentioned was a project in California that required the lifting of a 3,000 lb piece of curved glass that was 27ft wide. Special brackets were installed on the machine to help lift it.

Due to the customizable nature of these machines, Nudi said many machines are built to order, to handle the specific building needs and challenges of the client.

“Every job has something unique to it,” said Nudi.

With these Ergo Robotic Solutions available to do things that were cumbersome, expensive, or impossible to do in the past, architects have more freedom to make their artistic visions come true.
