Robotic breaking is a demolition technique that allows an operator to remotely control a robotic hammer. Remote operation and the robot’s small size and agility allow it to safely and efficiently access demo sites that are dangerously located or in tight quarters, ones that could never be accessed by traditional equipment. Ashton Sawing and Drilling is the highest-skilled and most efficient partner for your robotic breaking needs. We have mastered this new technology and have maximized breaking of the strongest concrete, worked effectively in hazardous environments, and can complete a job up to 10 times faster than traditional methods. Our robotic hammer technicians have excelled at rigorous training and safety exercises to join the elite team that operates this equipment.

In addition to meeting your demolition needs quickly and safely, we can access any job site with minimal disruption, meaning business can carry on as usual while we are at work.
