Heavy-duty drone ideal for construction unveiled

A Japanese company has unveiled the world’s first drone capable of lifting objects weighing up to 10kgs. The machine has clawed arms which can lift heavy objects and perform operations that such as cutting through cables and flipping switches.

According to the manufacturer Prodrone, the PD6B-AW-ARM is designed to conduct “hands-on” tasks in “places where it would be too dangerous for humans”, including high altitudes. For example, it can pick up cargo and hazardous objects, cut cables, flip switches, turn dials, and transport life-saving equipment.

It is estimated that 12 percent of construction companies in the UK now employ drones. Drones that can pick up objects would open the way for wider uses, including potentially bricklaying.
