Pile sheeting operations need auxiliary equipment and personnel to complete, while contractors have been concerned in increasing safety for crews, saving money, and efficiency. Movax is a robotic excavator mounted hydraulic vibratory pile driver. Its unique robotic articulation and side gripping ability allows the operator not only to drive and extract sheet piles, but also to pick a sheet, move it, thread it, and place it. The Movax can pick up a 50-foot sheet without releasing the sheet during these operations. This ability allows the Movax Robotic to help increasing crew safety by reducing the need of personnel in the job site.
