More and more people are becoming aware of the value of hydrodemolition and how it can benefit businesses. Generally, how to save money is on the top of every business’ priority list. So, how can high-pressure water jet robots help you and your business save money?
According to health and safety statistics, in 2015/16, 621,000 injuries occurred at work, costing businesses £14.1 billion. From fatigue-related injuries and pulmonary diseases (caused by the inhalation of harmful dust) to hand-arm vibration syndrome, traditional, labour intensive forms of concrete removal such as jackhammering can put operatives at risk. To keep work-related injuries to a minimum and, therefore, save businesses money, water jet robots are equipped with an innovative control system. This state-of-the-art control system allows high-pressure water jet robots to be effortlessly operated from a safe distance.
Thanks to the Aqua Spine and the Aqua Cutter 410A Evolution’s compact design, high-pressure water jet robots are now capable of completing tasks in all kinds of inhospitable environments and hard-to-reach areas. As a result, time and money is saved on the hiring, set up and dismantling of support equipment such as scaffolding.
When tackling any project, particularly a larger project, downtime is always a concern. To overcome this challenge and keep production shutdown to a minimum, water jet robots are used. Known to be 30% more effective than traditional methods of hydrodemolition such as hand lancing, these robots do the job of several men quicker than ever before.
One key advantage of water jet robots is their infallible accuracy. Unlike hand lancing, which is subject to human error, water jet robots have an equal distance system (EDS) and a specially designed nozzle for unbeatable accuracy.
