Developed by: MB Spezialabbruch GmbH & Co. KG
Development timeframe: 2017 – 2018
With the development of the RDB 100, a completely new and innovative demolition machine was created.
The RDB 100 enables unmanned, remote-controlled demolition of tall buildings with a linear structure. It thus offers increased safety for personnel, the demolition process, and the surrounding environment.
The RDB 100 is the prototype of a remote-controlled unmanned demolition machine for tall buildings with a linear structure. This machine is controlled by line of sight. A web-based IP camera system is installed to support the operator, and a GPS system exists for position control. The hydraulic system, remote control, and software are adapted to the application. The functionality and performance of the RDB 100 was impressively demonstrated during the demolition of the 162-meter-high cooling tower in Mülheim-Kärlich.
Advantages of innovation:
- Use on tall buildings with a linear structure
- No spanning of the structure necessary for stability
- Replaces blasting, together with a novel process combination of demolition methods
- Increased safety for personnel, demolition process, and environment
