EMU 1000 glazing robot at Wakefield Gallery

The Dual Circuit EMU1000 Glass Robot was used to replace a piece of broken glass weighing 460kgs at the new Wakefield Art Gallery.

The glass was difficult to reach and handle as the outside face of the building was directly over the weir on the River Calder in Wakefields new £100 million Waterfront conservation area development.

The GGR operator skilfully manipulated both pieces of glass, in and out of the first floor gallery, with the award winning Ergonomic Manipulating Unit (EMU), specifically designed for interior use when normal craneage is too costly, impractical or impossible.
