Automation technologies promise increased labor efficiency, reduced waste, and enhanced opportunity for customization. Framing Automation explored automated digital design-to-fabrication workflows in the context of one of these technologies – the Howick automated framing machine. Through a series of short presentations followed by a panel discussion and equipment demonstration, Framing Automation exposed the state of the art in automated light-gauge steel framing technology, demonstrate the value proposition for the adoption of such technologies, and speculate on the near-term future of automated computation design-to-automated framing production.
