Coil hooks are relatively inexpensive load-lifting devices for transporting coils. In many companies, this is still done using ropes and belts. When transporting material with coil hooks, the material does not become damaged as quickly and occupational safety for employees is also increased. Coil hooks from WIMO Hebetechnik are custom-designed for use in companies.
WIMO® coil hooks are high-quality products that are also designed for use in heavy-duty applications. Thanks to the rounded support strips, the coils are mounted and transported with extreme care. This saves money by preventing material damage. As the load centre is labelled, it is easier for the operator to mount the coil precisely at this point. In contrast to coil hooks from many other providers, the counterweight for WIMO® coil hooks is attached and welded to the hook block in a saddle shape – a very safe solution. The notch effect provides additional safety: The internal radii of WIMO® coil hooks are ground without notches. Handles make it easier for the operator to mount the coils. As they are screwed in place, they are quick to replace. WIMO® also supplies coil hooks with a patented adjustable prong pad for efficient separating of slit strips without accidents.
Inner stop plate with plastic protective coating (changeable), to protect the end face of the coil when picking up and setting down the load.
Outside back protection with plastic protective coating (changeable), to protect coils lying next to it.
Bolt suspension with safety bolts to prevent unintentional unhooking of the crane hook during unloading.
Coil hook with adjustable prong pad for an accident-free and efficient separation of slit strips.
Length of the spacer varies according to slit strip width.
Coil hook for handling at the turnstile: The tight space conditions when entering a turnstile or reel make a special coil hook necessary. The coil hook is specially made for the dimensions of your turnstile/reel. To compensate for the small tine cross-section, the hook plate may be made of a special material.
The suspension is spring-loaded.
- Return of the suspension to the centre of gravity of the unloaded hook by means of gas springs.
- Lower dead weight as no counterbalancing is required.
- Space-saving coil storage as no interfering contours due to counterweight balancing
This coil hook is designed to be picked up by the coil container tongs by means of a suspension adapter. With this coil hook, the coil containers are loaded safely. Without the coil hook, the coil container tongs transport the coil containers to the next process step. The adapter solution eliminates the need for time-consuming changing of the load handling attachment. Ideal for frequent changes of the goods to be transported. Designed for fast and safe lifting.
This coil hook can be picked up by coil tongs without manual help or attached directly to the crane hook using the central eyelet. Ideal vor frequent changes of the transported goods. Designed for quick and safe attachment without time-consuming changing of the load suspension device.
Example of an application:
Removal of the split strip coil from the truck, transport to the separating block. Separation of the coils using coil hooks with spacers and storage in storage racks. Picking up of the individual coils with the coil tongs (coil hook was efficiently placed in the parking stand) and transport to the next process step.
The suspension is spring-loaded.
- The suspension is returned to the centre of gravity of the unloaded hook by gas pressure springs.
- Suspension always via bolts due to construction.
Coil hooks with spring balancing are characterised by a lower dead weight than the variant with counterweight. Another advantage is that the coil hook with spring balancing is a space-saving variant, e.g. when space is limited due to the on-site system technology.
