Automatic slab tong

The three various Motorized Sheet Lifter - Rack & Pinion (R&P), Fixed and Telescopic Type- are multipurpose tongs to lift single- or multiple bundles, sheets, plates and other material in various dimensions, stacked horizontally. Each sheet-metal-tong is tailored and manufactured to specific customer requirements.

The crane operator controls the entire lifting process from the crane cabin by placing the tong above the sheet pack until the lifting shoes can grip under the pack. Drive is provided by a three-phase gear motor and R&P transmission. 
The electric circuit is wired by plug-in into a terminal box on the tong unit. 
The suspension assembly is designed to accommodate standard crane hooks and is fixed by pull pins. Customized suspensions on request.
