Glider Products has developed a new, patent-pending Automated Pipe Handling System that offers new touch-free and automated solutions for pipe handling in the field. It offers several improvements over existing products, including touch-free pipe handling from pipe yard to wellhead, automated pipe tally and fully automated pipe movement with the push of a single button.

The Glider Automated Pipe Handling System’s features offer several benefits to rig operators. First, the touch-free handling option can potentially reduce worker hand injuries, a major source of reportable incidents in the field. Second, the Glider System improves the labor-intensive and error-prone manual process of pipe tally, with real-time monitoring from anywhere in the world via the internet. Third, by freeing up workers from manually moving and tallying pipe, the System reduces manpower needs and allows limited workforce resources to be deployed elsewhere.
