The high pressure water technics more and more serve as a work tool for cutting as well as for surface treatment. Especially in the construction industry this kind of technology is significant. Before mentioned method enables the operating staff to remove the deteriorated concrete in precision work, avoiding damage of the reinforcement and preventing further cracks. This high removal quality and also efficiency could never be reached with manually operated water jet equipment. The advantages of water jet technic can only be realized with a mobile flexible computer controlled machine. The new generated equipment family leads the water jet in an exact defined distance to the concrete surface with an exactly velocity on a fixed course. In fact, one water jet unit can easily replace a 30-50 jackhammers. Due to the modular constructing the demolition robot can be used on declined areas, walls and for overheard work. The robot system can be mounted on standard scaffolding, thanks to the light constructing. All drive units are supplied with 24 constant voltage. The repulsion caused by the water jet power when removing the concrete runs up to abt. 2000N
