It’s time to take a closer look at the workings of a world beater – with our Anatomy of a Glazing Robot.
Hird has created the interactive feature so people can really understand how the Winlet 575 glazing robot works, and why it is a game changer in the world of glass installation.
As with the Valla, we give visitors to our website a guided tour of the Winlet 575 glazing robot.
Star glass lifter
They can click on any one of eleven buttons to reveal explanations of how the machine works, and why it is revolutionising glass lifting.
Hird is the UK and Ireland authorised dealer for Winlet glazing robots, and we think the machine is an ideal candidate to get the star treatment.
Managing Director Phil Hird said: “Our Anatomy of a Glazing Robot feature is a very good way for potential users of the machine to get to know the product.
“We’ve included all the information they need to have a rounded view of what this glazing robot can do, and why it’s so much better than the competition.
“As with any innovative device, the important thing is to explain it simply but effectively. That way our customers, and anyone else interested in cutting edge technology, will feel comfortable with the concept.”
Precision and productivity
Danish-made Winlet glazing robots are designed to lift, carry and place glass panels and other non-porous sheet products with precision, and with the minimal amount of manual handling, greatly increasing the speed and productivity of glass installation.
They are rapidly become a go-to item in the Hird glass lifter hire fleet, with many of our customers admiring their compact design and features.
For example, the Winlet 575 glazing robot can lift up to 575kg to a height of 3.6m.
It can be remotely controlled. Also, its vacuum manipulator can keep a panel perfectly aligned in the same vertical and horizontal axes while being moved.
This means the panel can be placed precisely in an aperture without the operator having to reposition the head or the load having to be manual handled.
The Anatomy of a Glazing Robot includes comments from users and specifications, so potential users can see which Winlet machine best suits their needs from a growing range.
Lifting capacities range from 350kg to the new Winlet 1000 glazing robot which can lift a maximum 1t. The 350TH is designed to be fitted to a telehandler or forklift, aiding glass installation at height and over uneven ground.
