CEMVISA VICINAY, S.A. participates in the HEPHAESTUS project, sponsored by the European Union through the HORIZON 2020 programme (The European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation).

Hephaestus approaches new concepts to introduce robotics and autonomous use systems in the construction sector where, at the moment, the presence of this type of products is limited.
Hephaestus is focused on providing innovative solutions to one of the most important parts of the construction sector, which is the part related to facades and curtain walls and the works that are needed when this part of a building is constructed or needs to be maintained.

Hephaestus proposes a new automated way to install these products, providing a complete final solution not only highly industrialized for production but also in installation and maintenance.

The project has been conceived as a solution to carry out multiple tasks in vertical or inclined planes of the built environment and outdoors. It is mainly based on a cable driven robot. Hephaestus integrates several technologies and, in addition to the robot itself, there is a modular kit. This end-effector modular kit is capable of supporting several tools. On the one hand, it can hold the necessary tools for the task to be executed, which can be different depending on the application. On the other hand, it also hosts all the accessory devices that are necessary for the detection and control of the system.



The solution would be able to perform several tasks within the construction environment, for example, analysis of the structure of a building to obtain precise plans of its final state and connection to the BIM model of the construction, installation of prefabricated panels, painting, cleaning of a curtain wall in a building, replacement of damaged elements, repair of cracks, maintenance of possible solar cells and so on.

Hephaestus aims to automate the process of installation or execution on site to enhance and strengthen the construction sector in Europe and for the placement of the European robotics industry as a leader and reference in the huge and growing new market for robotics.

Due to our experience with lifting equipment, our main task in the project is the simulation and prototyping of the components of the cable robot, mainly the winches that make up the robot, but also in the platform or modular kit.
