Artaic Innovative Mosaic
Artaic used a slow, expensive and error-prone system to assemble custom tile mosaics. The flaws in the original mosaic assembly system were inherent to the design and no reasonable upgrade would have substantial improvement in performance. This project aimed at developing a fast and accurate robotic mosaic assembly system solution, the TileJet, for the assembly of tile mosaics used in the residential and commercial sectors. The novel design feature of the TileJet system is the use of an array of tile placing mechanisms to assemble mosaics. Having an array of tile placing modules provides for parallel tile placement which significantly enhances mosaic assembly time. The modularity of the TileJet allows Artaic to expand and complete the system as per their requirements.
