OIFSC Adds GlasLift 351 To Training Fleet

GLG was proud to have the Ontario Industrial and Finishing Skills Centre (OIFSC) recently take delivery of a GlasLift 351 / 770.

The state of the art facilities in Toronto, Ontario, are home to amongst other things, the students in the Architectural Glass & Metal Technician & Metal Mechanic Training Programs offered by the AGMCA.According to the AGMCA website, the program was “developed to provide trades people with theoretical knowledge of innovative techniques and procedures associated with the assembly and installation of glazing systems.”We believe in the same mantra that the AGMCA does, which is that training apprentices and journeymen is an integral part of maintaining a healthy glazing industry.The GlasLift® 351/770 is the most intelligent remote controlled glass handler available.The intelligent transport mechanism offers precise maneuverability, and the two-circuit vacuum suction system offers 400% over-capacity protection. We feel that these two features offer the OIFSC more usability, versatility, and safety in choosing the 351/770 for their facility, than any other machine in the glazing industry. Obviously they agreed.

With reduced labor and Workers Compensation costs, reduced work force fatigue, and INCREASED productivity, the glazing industry is rapidly embracing the move to versatile glass handlers like the GL-351/770.

The OIFSC’s goal is to “provide safe and educational training and certification to their members.” They have training centres in Toronto, and Ancaster, and Nepean. For more information, please visit their website.
