Vesuvius has a long and successful experience in supporting the Cement industry with the supply of refractories to all areas of the production process. Its production process is very adaptive to different products, and thus automations at some of the production steps might not be the optimal solutions. While with skilled workers in the loop, its versatility is kept.
Due to the overwhelming amount of repeated body bends, workers suffer from back fatigue. Weston Robot (Singapore) introduced back production exoskeletons (a.k.a backX) to Vesuvius Malaysia plant, and received very positive feedback from the field workers. To better help skilled workers in Vesuvius use the exoskeletons, engineers from Weston Robot also spent 2 days on training the workers on proper fitting and maintaining of the device.

- 12-25Students and researchers from Singapore Polytechnic developed outdoor delivery robot by collaborating with Weston Robot's engineers team using RTK/GPS navigation. he AMRs are able to collect and deliver items, based on request, from one building to another. They are able to navigate around on their own, avoiding obstacles, and returning to their source if any unexpected situation arises.
Weston Robot Delivered FDA-approved Exoskeletons to Rehabilitation Research Institute of SingaporeThe FDA-approved PHOENIX Medical Exoskeleton is the world's lightest and most advanced exoskeleton designed to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile. In the clinic, at home, and in the workplace Phoenix has successfully enabled many individuals to stand up, walk about, and speak to peers eye-to-eye.
Weston Robot Delivered Ackerman-Driven Autonomous Robot to NTUTo develop autonomous driving related algorithms with a real car is very expensive and requiring large spaces and tracks. However, Ackerman-drive robot, which mimics the behaviour of a car is superiors in many aspects. Autonomous driving research team in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, adopts the Ackerman-drive robot from Weston Robot to conduct their advanced research.
