Case study

Since little has changed in building in the past century, and the problem of qualified and reliable labor still exists, Williams Robotics develops robotic systems aimed at automating more of the construction process. Being in step with technology innovations, AMC Bridge successfully applied its extensive expertise in construction software development, robotics simulation, and programming to help accelerate the client’s software improvements and enable bringing their cutting-edge robotic solutions to the construction market.

Williams Robotics turned to AMC Bridge for help with their software development project. AMC Bridge’s proven track record of successfully delivering software projects in the construction domain and deep knowledge of robot software were decisive factors for Williams Robotics in choosing AMC Bridge as a partner for the project.

AMC Bridge was entrusted to refactor the existing code used by FANUC® robots for sorting and nailing wooden structures. The purpose was to make it scalable and easy to maintain.

However, the project quickly gained a more ambitious goal due to AMC Bridge engineers’ deep expertise and initiative augmented by the client’s willingness to master the product. Thus, on top of code improvement, the robot’s building speed and precision were enhanced while the range of supported wooden profiles was extended.

Founder and Chief Engineer of Williams Robotics, Jeff Williams, spoke highly of the AMC Bridge team’s professional approach and the result of their work:

“Absolutely the best consulting experience I’ve ever had (in a long career). Tasks were done at the highest level of professionalism and efficiency. I always had the feeling that the AMC team really cared about our project. I look forward to working with AMC again.”
