There is a lack of affordable housing around the world. Conventional home construction cannot meet this challenge alone. KUKA is playing a decisive role in the solution with automated modular home construction.

The list of advantages of automated modular construction is long. It ranges from higher efficiency and unparalleled quality to improved working conditions and sustainability in construction.

A specific example: construction time is shortened by up to 70 percent. Furthermore, the total cost is less by a quarter (compared to conventional building methods). Only the creation of the foundation and final assembly are carried out at the construction site.

Automated home construction is a key topic for the future with innovative drive, and one that KUKA is already implementing with customers – for example with a leading supplier for 3D modular home construction in England.

In 2024, for thefirst time in Germany, a flexible turnkey system will be completed in cooperation with a company for sustainable and serial construction. A special feature here is the AGV-based distribution center, which allows maximum flexibility for end customers. With a degree of automation of up to 86 percent, the new production line can produce a wall element in just 17 minutes. The infographic provides valuable insight.
