ALEC partners with Hilti to pilot Jaibot, a first-of-its-kind drilling robot in the UAE
ALEC has collaborated with Hilti, a multinational construction manufacturing company, to pilot Jaibot, a first-of-its-kind semi-autonomous robot in the UAE, and GCC, that increases drilling tasks’ efficiency.
Since March 2019, ALEC has been working with Hilti to test the robot’s productivity on a number of ALEC’s projects, including the flagship One Za’abeel.
Kez Taylor, CEO of ALEC, said: “It is incredibly exciting to witness the transformation of the construction industry up close through our collaboration with Hilti. We are passionate about continually championing innovation and digital transformation in the industry, and via Jaibot, we can see how the future of construction is shaped, whilst unlocking new levels of efficiency in our processes.”
The Hilti Jaibot is a robot that helps add more productivity to installation in projects. This innovative construction robot takes over installation execution while allowing the project manager to track project progress and status through data. Using digital plans, the Jaibot marks and drills holes, relieving construction workers from the strenuous task of overhead drilling and allowing them to focus on the operation of the construction robot.
