    BLOCK FOR USE IN AUTOMATED BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

    The manufacturers can be deduced from the materials to be used!Wienerberger is one of the manufacturers!

    In one embodiment, the lightweight expanded aggregate is at least one of:
    a) an expanded clay aggregate;
    b) an expanded slate aggregate;
    c) an expanded shale aggregate; and,
    d) an expanded glass aggregate.)

    "Many of the common clay bricks used in building construction in Australia such as the Boral Maxi Brick, and Slick brick, are made using techniques that produce a poor tolerance of the bricks dimensions, with resultant variation between different bricks of length, height and width. This is acceptable in the construction of buildings using cement-based mortars which are laid manually, as the builder/bricklayer can adjust for variations in brick dimensions, by varying the thickness of adjoining beds of mortar as the bricks are laid. Common clay bricks are very dense, and consequently are difficult to machine. In addition to this, the size of these bricks is very small, which increases the number of handling operations in the construction of a building for a given wall area, with a resultant reduction of efficiency. Overall these factors make these bricks unsuitable for use within automated building construction requiring close tolerances in building construction.
    Another block on the market that could overcome some of the problems in automated building construction is the Porotherm clay brick supplied by Wienerberger A.G. While the Porotherm clay brick has a precise height, it has an irregular width and length. The Porotherm external and internal bricks do not tie in with each other, resulting in complex joins between internal and external walls. While not an insurmountable problem, the standard size of the Porotherm does not work well with the current standard Australian door frame width and height sizes. These factors produce a large amount of waste when using the Porotherm system in the Australian construction industry. The Porotherm clay bricks are also very fragile. In addition to this, the shape and features of the Porotherm clay brick do not allow for easy recognition using machine vision techniques.

    An alternative to the above described bricks and blocks is the CSR Hebel PowerBlock product. This is a solid brick formed of moulded aerated concrete. While supplied in various large format sizes which would render it suitable for use in automated building construction, the inventor has found that the need for post manufacturing processing and the tendency of the supplied bricks to warp, renders these bricks less than ideal for use with the inventor's automated building construction system.
    It is against this background, and the problems and difficulties associated therewith, that the present invention has been developed."

    Every block manufacturer who wants to be a part of it has to manufacture stones that meet FBR's requirements. FBR can now also charge license fees for each stone used. The bargaining power continues to increase.

    These patents are another brilliant move by FBR! It is only a matter of time before the appropriate stones are used!
