Robot Assisted log building...
Nicola LogWorks has a reputation for innovation and procedures development. Our most recent endeavour is that of incorporating a unique technology developed by Ballmer Systems Inc., using a robot to cut our post and beam log homes, architectural components and spiral stairs.
We call it Robot Assisted Log Building and the benefits are many; we are able to produce more efficiently, more accurately and most importantly, we can assign the heavy work to the robot, leaving our team of talented log builders free to to focus on the finer details.
"ABBy the Log Building Robot" not only helps us to produce our existing product range more efficiently, but has provided opportunity for new product lines, such as the "Advantage Log Panel System" inspired by the tradition of Piece-en-Piece Log Homes, which when cut by hand is a very labour intensive, and therefore expensive style of log building. You can learn more about Piece-en-Piece Log Homes and the backstory of how Ballmer Systems Inc. has allowed us to realize aour long held dream of building real houses for real people.
