Hilti Jaibot: The first UK site demonstration with Multiplex

Launching the Jaibot was a momentous milestone for us at Hilti, so we were super excited to join Multiplex at the University of Glasgow for the Jaibot's first ever UK site demonstration!

A BIT ABOUT MULTIPLEX

Founded in 1962, Multiplex is a premier construction contractor known for its high-rise buildings and iconic projects around the world. Ever heard of a little-known stadium called Wembley? Yes… that was them! Operating in Australia, India, Canada, Europe and the Middle East, Multiplex have delivered in excess of 1,100 projects globally – creating structures that combine sustainable design with world-class construction expertise.

WHAT DOES THE HILTI JAIBOT DO?

James O’Driscoll, Digital Construction Consultant at Hilti, explains: “The Jaibot is a semi-autonomous drilling robot, and what it can do is drill serial overhead applications – especially for your MEP and suspended ceiling applications on your jobsite. It can drill holes for all trades, and it can even leave a marking system on the ceiling so you can differ between the trades on site. The real advances of this tool, apart from productivity gains, are the real health and safety benefits that it provides. With the Jaibot, you don’t need to work at heights, it eliminates dust and Hand-Arm Vibration – which are big issues on the jobsite in today’s market.”
