If Neymar was something useful, he would be a Winlet 1000 glazing robot.
One glaring difference. A glazing robot would not cost half a billion pounds (thank goodness for us).
We’re being a bit controversial by suggesting that Brazilian ball kicker-arounder Neymar is not useful.
But we are making a point. The transfer deal that took him from Barcelona to Paris Saint-German has been described as a “game changer”.
And that is just the expression that a glazing contractor used to describe the Winlet glazing robot.
That’s why our Product of the Month for August is the Winlet 1000.
Can Neymar do this?
Just for a moment imagine attaching a hand-held remote-control device to Neymar, then guiding him, armed outstretched, up to a piece of glass weighing 1,000kg.
Could he lift it and place it with absolute precision into a window aperture? No.
Hird Group is the authorised distributor for Winlet glazing robots in the UK and Ireland, which is very much NOT like being a football agent.
We have been very pleased with the response to the Winlet 1000 glazing robot, the largest capacity machine so far in the range.
See the similarities
For example, that glass lifting company said it was “amazed” by what its Winlet glazing robot (a 575 model) can do.
It went on to say: “It’s changing how we do our work, and it’s already winning us new business. People stop and watch when we use it on site.”
See the similarity? Isn’t that just why PSG bought Neymar?
So, let us focus on the Winlet 1000. What is it that is impresses glass installation companies and curtain wall installers who hire it from us?
Here are 10 reasons you too will be amazed by the Neymar, SORRY, Winlet 1000 glazing robot.
- 1. Versatility – it can lift all non-porous items. The Winlet 1000 can be hired from Hird not just to lift glass. It can lift granite, concrete, plasterboard, steel, plastic, and fire doors.
- 2. Compact design – the Winlet 1000 glazing robot can lift the weight of a small car, but is small enough itself to be guided through a single standard doorway. Its own low weight means it can be operated in locations out of bounds to heavier glass lifting equipment.
- 3. Easy to control – via one multi-function control panel, with LED and warning signals. All functions are electronically controlled. The glazing robot can also be controlled remotely with a cabled remote control (there will have been plenty of managers who would have liked such a device for Neymar).
- 4. Great control – with a transaxle, and front wheel drive that increases traction with the load. Good all terrain ability, including the option to fit twin front wheels to enhance stability. Electronic braking for confident load handling.
- 5. Perfect precision – the Winlet 1000 glazing robot has step-free speed and hydraulic controls, which allows fast and precise positioning of both the glazing robot and its load. Its low-noise operation is ideal for operation in clean and multi-team working environments.
- 6. Excellent safety – the glazing robot has advanced safety features to prevent a load being dropped. If there is a failure of the vacuum system, the valves stay open, so the load is held.
- 7. Industry-leading load manipulation – with 180-degree ultra-smooth continuous rotation. This is combined with a telescopic function that reduced the need for machine repositioning and delivers greater reach and height, including allowing glass installation directly overhead.
- 8. Minimised manual handling – with 100% linear movement that allows precision final adjustment of the load before placement, and a gyro sensor to keep a load at any chosen angle. This contributes to safety, and reduces the size of teams needed to operate the Winlet 1000.
- 9. Side shift – a bit like a Neymar shimmy, the Winlet 1000 glazing robot delivers a 100% linear sideways movement, via a hydraulic ram in the glazing manipulator head. Again, perfect for final placement of a load, at any operating height.
- 10. Intelligent control – with a fully-integrated load monitoring system, plus battery monitoring, and vacuum monitoring, for enhanced safety, ease-of-use, and productivity.
So, there you have it. The Winlet 1000 glazing robot.
It has excellent control while operating at speed, can shimmy sideways, or pretty much in any direction, and once it has got a load, it will never lose it.
Finally, it will deliver what it carries into an aperture, often rectangular in shape, with complete precision. Oh, and it is a gamechanger.
One crucial difference.
