The Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) was performed at the test facility of FBR. There were three key parameters which were focused by the Hadrian X. It consists of a two-course structure which considers a full combination of the size of bricks used, the cuts and the configuration of laying them. Secondly, it consists of the structure of 11-course pillars which will demonstrate the Hadrian X’s potential to build from slab to cap height. Thirdly, check the potential of Hadrian X’s to build a larger two-room structure on a slab from a 3D CAD model with the required level of accuracy.
When the FAT was completed successfully, the Hadrian X then started building its first full home structure. This structure got completed within a period of 3 days. Further, verification of the structure was done to identify whether the relevant structure meets the standard of civil and structural engineering consultancy group.
On completing the full home structure using the Hadrian X, the CEO of the company Mike Pivac stated that the company is very proud to achieve this first milestone. He also commented that a massive market is waiting for the company as they now have the world’s only fully automated along with end-to-end bricklaying solution. The company will now take the learnings till date from the Hadrian X programme. Further, they are trying to bring some enhancements by bringing both Hadrian X robots to their High Wycombe facility.
