Robotic Demolition

Robotic demolition is a more efficient alternative to removing concrete by hand. Despite their compact size our robotic demolition machines can outperform excavators five times as big. With the ability to fit through 3 feet wide man doors, climb stairs, or ride elevators, these machines can work anywhere. Plus they can go on floors with load limits and in confined areas, making them well-suited to indoor demolition or small spaces. Drills, crushers, excavation buckets, breakers, or other parts can be attached to the arms as needed, based on the job.

 

These electric machines produce no emissions, are equipped with engineered water suppression at the point, and are operated by wireless remotes to keep people out of harm’s way ⁠— making robotic demolition one of the safest methods for concrete demolition. 

 

Diamond performs superior quality robotic demolition throughout Michigan, northern Ohio, northern Indiana, and selectively within the U.S.

Robotic Demolition FAQs

Can demolition robots climb stairs?

Yes, they can climb most stairs, because they are only 54 inches tall and 34 inches wide.

 

Can we break overhead concrete?
Yes, we can break concrete that is overhead. Our demolition robots can reach 15’ tall. If we need to reach even higher, we can utilize hi-los and other equipment. 

 

How long does demoing concrete or other structures take?
We like to estimate about 30,000lbs of concrete in an 8-10 hour shift.
