HP has announced the full availability of HP SitePrint in the US, Canada, UK, and Ireland following the conclusion of its Early Access Programme.
SitePrint is a robotic solution that aims to print complex construction site layouts with “pinpoint accuracy”; HP says the solution boosts productivity by as much as 10 times when compared with manual techniques.
According to HP, SitePrint has been used by general contractors, trade contractors, and geospatial service providers on over a hundred projects, across six countries – including the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Spain, and Norway.
Gerardo Rivera, COO of L5 Drywall Inc., which used SitePrint as part of HP’s Early Access Programme, said: “On our first day with the device, we did a competition between SitePrint and a manual layout team of four people.
“The HP solution laid out seven or eight rooms in the time it took the manual team to do two or three.
“Now, we can free up resources to start laying out track much earlier, helping move the project forward faster…The accuracy also impressed us.”
Daniel Martinez, general manager at HP Large Format Printing, said: “We’re thrilled to be making our innovative HP SitePrint solution fully available to customers in the US, Canada, UK, and Ireland.
“We’ve successfully demonstrated the ability to radically improve productivity when it comes to the layout process.”
