Watch a robot carve two stools out of a log
06 February 2017
The stackable 7Xstool is cut right from a tree trunk with a chainsaw by a KUKA industrial robot and wastes hardly any material in the process.
The process uses different tree trunks so a variety of bark, grain and branches make each stool one of a kind.
By cleverly programming the saw’s tracks, the production of these stools (two at a time) wastes almost no material.
The name of the stools, 7Xstool, derived from the seven axes on which the robot arm operates.
This unique process was developed by Tom Pawlofsky together with Tibor Weissmahr from Kkaarrlls.
