VTS™ – Gantry Mounted Model

Leading edge manipulator/robotic technology, the VTS™ (Vulcan Tactile System) is a telemanipulator using an Industrial Robot. This machine provides 3 modes of operation – Manual, Semi-Automatic, Fully Automatic.

The use of our specialized hand control system allows the operator to manually control the robot, not just program it. This allows the operator to move the robot simultaneously with his movements for a true “hands on” experience.

This technology no longer requires pre-programming of the Robot to perform tasks. A library of motions is available, that is accessible by the operator, to make complex movements simple such as angular planes, radiuses, etc.
