Climbing Robot Jack System is a robotized hydraulic jack equipped with a level detector and operating control device that grips and climbs a steel pipe rod. Several sets of jacks are centrally controlled and overall level maintained. This system can be applied to climbing formwork method in bridge pier construction as well as in dismantling temporary steel works used for bridge construction. Its applications to scaffolding for vertical shaft in tunnel construction, exterior scaffolding in building construction and in various other fields are considered possible. Excellent results is labor saving, construction time shortening and safety were obtained when this system was applied especially to climbing formwork method.
