Introduction to SPRINGBOARD®

The company works on a semi-autonomous indoor painting solution focusing on large-scale construction projects. It paints walls and ceilings alongside construction painters increasing productivity, reducing costs, and decreases physically straining labour.

Questions for sparring

For this SPRINGBOARD®, panelists are sought who can provide sparring in the following areas:

      1. 1. Understanding painters from a construction value chain perspective – How are they perceived? Strengths? Weaknesses? Challenges? Opportunities?
      2. 2. Developing the team – What team skills and knowledge considerations do we need to make?
      3. 3. Finding the margins – Identifying the potential and best use cases to ensure sustainable financial growth?

            Industry: Automation, Robot-technology, Drones

            Development stage: Proof of Concept

            Idea and USP

            Empowers painters through collaborative painting. Solution takes large, repetitive surfaces (walls and ceilings). Detailed work left for painters

            Problems Addressed

            Labour shortage (86% in EU, 33% painters retired withing decade), physical strain from painting above shoulder height, lacking productivity

            Our Solution

            A collaborative painting robot comprised of a mobile base and an extendable pillar equipped with a spray mechanism. It automatically moves along walls, avoids objects, and spray-paint walls and ceilings up to 3.5m high. It is a low-cost plug-and-play solution focused on simplicity using off-the-shelf parts using our state-of-the art proprietary algorithm and user-friendly software.

            Business model

            Sales through distributors specialized in paint(ing tools). Annual service fee for support, maintenance, and updates

            Target customers

            Construction painters, building maintenance organizations
