Abstract
The evolution of innovative printing techniques in the three-dimensional world goes on. Before we reported about the amazing rapid prototyping revolution, about printers that are able to print complete buildings and about the inkjet printer for streets. Now there is also the road printer. The Tiger Stone brick printer makes road construction as easy as laying laminate flooring. BLDGBLOG considers the invention of the Dutch company to be a real “road printer”.

Abstract: The construction industry’s contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP) in the developing countries like that of in India is about 10%. Under the Make in India scheme, it is expected that $1000 Billion investments for infrastructure sector would be accomplished in the next few years. Today the construction industry is one of the most unpracticed fields in terms of automation. The importance of construction automation has grown rapidly in developed countries. In developing countries like India, the construction industries need automation technologies such as new machineries, electronic devices , the automation of road, tunnel, and bridge construction; earthwork, etc.

The construction industry being labor intensive requires more numbers of skilled labor, good quality of work, and increase in productivity etc. The problems associated with construction work such as decreasing quality of work, labor shortages, and safety of labor and working condition of projects can be overcome by new innovative technologies such as automation which has the potential to improve the quality, safety, and productivity of the construction industry.

Today, it is evident that the level of automation in construction is very low in comparison with current technological advances. That is why we must make new efforts to increase the automation level of this important sector.

Gypsum Application through Machine

The old method to apply Gypsum manually took hours of labor and also had poor durability due to manual errors. Now with automation in this field, application through machine is gaining wide spread popularity as its not only faster but also cheaper in long run as very less labor is required.

Dump Truck – Construction Equipment

Dump trucks or production trucks are those that are used for transporting loose material such as sand, dirt, and gravel for construction. The typical dump truck is equipped with a hydraulically operated open box bed hinged at the rear, with the front being able to be lifted up to allow the contents to fall out on the ground at the site of delivery.Dump trucks come in many different configurations with each one specified to accomplish a specific task in the construction chain.
