What used to be bricks and mortar, is now massive plate glass.
When a computer retailer was setting up their newest store in a high-end Toronto shopping mall, they needed someone who could handle the massive plate glass installation. To complicate matters, the space they had to bring the glass in was pedestrian sized and could not be modified.
E1 was called in to perform the task.
Thanks to our custom tool set and talented employees, E1 was able to deliver. Our crew outfitted a forklift with our custom designed End-Effector. For those who haven’t heard about our End-Effector, it’s a robotic arm outfitted with suction cups that we designed and built almost a decade ago. Better than any commercially available tool on the market, our End-Effector has a 5 axis hydraulic manipulator and has the capacity to make handling massive pieces of glass a breeze. We wanted to create a tool that would set us apart from other glazing companies. Our investment into the proper tools made performing this task a breeze.
Since E1 had the equipment to carefully, and accurately, move the glass we were able to handle the tight operating space. In addition to delivering on time, we used less man hours than other contractors would have had to use, helping keep the costs down for the client.
Thanks to their decades of experience, E1 completed the job effectively and on-time.
