www.concreteproducts.com February 2017 • 31 NEWS SCOPE MASONRY The average mason lays 350-400 modular bricks in a work day. SAM averages 2,000-plus bricks per day, product engineers observe, thus making a robot-equipped jobsite 2.5 times more efficient than using manual labor alone. SAM's main conveyor holds around 22 modular bricks and can place up to a 12-lb. utility brick. Two smaller conveyors simultaneously hold intermittently placed cut brick and/or smaller end pieces.
