Pressure sensor benefits set in concrete

29 June 2021

Pressure sensors perform a vital role in the development of effective robotic solutions for ever-increasingly diverse – and, in some cases, highly specialised – manufacturing applications.

One recent example of this is a high-precision pressure monitoring application for concrete processing, using 3D printing robots. This results in automated concrete prints, without the need for complex formwork.

This new development approach to enhancing printing processes was the result of close cooperation between Baumer and the renowned research institute, NCCR DFAB (National Centre of Competence in Research – Digital Fabrication), part of the ETH Zurich. 

The key factor was to meet the challenges of pumping concrete consistently and reliably for intricate designs, layer upon layer, without the traditional preparation methods involving complex formwork or mouldings...
