Robotor is an automated robotic ‘chisel’ controlled by software capable of self-tuning. The robot ‘works’ in Carrara, Italy.

An automatic sculptor can reproduce impressive works of art. The robot first analyses the material it is about to process, then determines the points around the material from which it must cut off the excess, and begins production. The software helps the robot select which tools to use in each step of the production process: sculpting or polishing with water jets.

The place where the Robotor is used is famous, and, as they say, not by accident. Carrara is an Italian town with more than 62,000 residents. It’s where the famous white Carrara marble from the nearby Apuan Alps is processed.
