Introducing the Internet of Tools

Velocity Robotics is transforming the construction worksite with the Internet of Tools. Our flagship product Autoset makes measuring and cutting with precision fast and easy, eliminating errors and reducing bottlenecks and waste on construction jobsites. Customers include:
• general contractors who self-perform

• building finish contractors

• new home builders

• remodeling contractors

• DIY carpenters

Connectivity Supercharges Efficiency

Introducing connectivity between the office, shop, and worksite increases productivity and reduces errors. Measurements in CAD drawings upload automatically to the saw at the jobsite; measurements taken at the jobsite upload automatically to the cut station at the shop. And cutlists for entire projects from tables to Adirondack chairs can be uploaded directly to the saw station, enabling the work to go lightning fast.



More Data = Smarter Management

The internet of tools gives users access to data never before captured. Contractors can get daily reports on the amount of material consumed and how much remains, so they can better manage inventory and account for loss. And data showing how much a team can cut in a day enables contractors to produce more accurate estimates.


The Vision


Velocity Robotics’ Internet of Tools vision includes
• Autoset for any type of fixed blade saw (chop saw, miter saw, table saw, wet saw)
• a family of Bluetooth measuring devices
• mobile stud roller
• layout bot
• mobile drywall bot
