In many industrial enterprises, coils need to be transported, turned and placed into storage while raised. This needs to be done in a way that is as protective as possible for the materials and as safe as possible for employees. WIMO Hebetechnik offers innovative and durable heavy load transportation solutions for this purpose.
Coil tongs from WIMO® enable safe and rapid transportation and allow coils to be turned and placed into storage. Like all WIMO® products, all coil tongs are custom-designed for the individual application scenario. The circumstances on-site are taken into consideration and utilised to optimal effect. This results in innovative and high-performance special-purpose designs. Our coil tongs are designed for a very long service life.
Telescopic coil tong with horizontal rotary drive
The coil tongs pick up the coils on the transfer station in front of the automatic area. For this purpose, the arms are moved separately so that they can also pick up coils that have not been placed in the exact position. The clamps are folded in during the approach to the coil. Light barriers are used to check whether the gripper arms are positioned centrally to the coil eye. The separately movable gripper arms approach the coil. In order to protect the coil, the closing movement is stopped by switch-off bars leading ahead. When the motor has been stopped via the shut-off bars in both gripper arms, the claws are folded down to pick up the coil. While the coil is being lifted, the automatic centre compensation brings the coil into the centre of the clamp housing. The horizontal slewing gear enables any position during storage via a ball bearing slewing ring. The tongs are automatically lubricated via a lubricator.
Telescopic coil tong with spindle drive
The built-in horizontal slewing gear allows coils to be stored in differently aligned rows.
Telescopic coil tong with spindle drive, separate moving tong arms
with spindle drive, separately movable tong arms and sensors. The coil tongs are fixed to the crane via 2 rope pulleys. The tongs are fixed in the uppermost lifting position. The coil tongs pick up the coils on the transfer station in front of the automatic area. For this purpose, the arms are moved separately so that they can also pick up coils that have not been placed in the exact position. The clamps are folded in during the approach to the coil.

When the motor has been stopped via the shut-off bars in both gripper arms, the claws are folded down to pick up the coil. While the coil is being lifted, the automatic centre compensation brings the coil into the centre of the clamp housing.
Telescopic coil tong with horizontal rotary device
Foldable claws enable gentle coil pick-up as well as tight storage of the coils. This means that only the space for the vertical tong arm bars is required.
Telescopic coil tong with spindle drive, particulary designed for use in ports
with spindle drive, rotatable via particularly stable ball bearing slewing ring. The folding claws are a great advantage, especially for loading and unloading ships. This means that the gripper arms require less space when approaching the coil. The clamps are only folded down when the tong arms are in the optimum position. This way, the folding clamps make it easier to enter the coil eye and protect the coil.
Telescopic coil tong in mechanical design
The cost-effective solution for manual coil transport. The investment is comparable to ropes and belts, but the transport is significantly safer for people and material.
Telescopic coil tong with extra low headroom
Ideal solution for low hall heights or when many coils are stacked on top of each other and the hall height is restricted as a result.
Attachment for transporting coils and bundles of sheet metal loaded on pallets
Ideal for occasional changes of goods to be transported. Designed for fast and safe slinging without time-consuming changing of the load handling attachment. The sheet metal package adapter is placed in a trestle. The coil tongs retract into the adapter with the claws on both sides. By picking up the adapter, the load safety device of the coil tongs switches. The load safety device prevents the tong arms from opening under load - in this case "under the load of the adapter". Even in the event of accidental incorrect operation, the tong arms will not open. Safe transport of the sheet packs is guaranteed.
Telescopic pallet tong with spindle drive
and spindle drive. The pick-up claws can be rotated by 90 degrees by motor for easy positioning underneath the pallet and space-saving pallet storage. The design used here is particularly slim and all components have been designed to be as compact as possible in order to save space when storing the pallets on the truck.
Stand with flight of stair and maintenance platform
to significantly facilitate maintenance work. Easy and convenient access to the mechanical and electrical interfaces when changing tongs.
Coiltong with adapter
for picking up a scrap container clamp. Easy and quick change of the load handling attachment without manual assistance.
Telescopic coil gripper with hydraulic drive
In port operations, efficient and safe coil handling is of utmost importance. With the WIMO tandem coil tongs, two coils with different widths and diameters, or even individual coils, can be transported simultaneously. This saves time and therefore money. The ship berthing charges are reduced by up to 50 %.
Telescopic coil gripper with spindle drive
DE utility model protected. Especially in port operations, efficient and safe coil handling is of utmost importance. With the WIMO tandem coil tongs, two coils with different widths and diameters, or even individual coils, can be transported simultaneously. This saves time and therefore money. The ship berthing charges are reduced by up to 50 %. The coils can be placed close together due to the foldable claws. For maximum visibility when picking up loads, the double coil tong is equipped with a crane system whose images are transmitted directly to the crane cabin.
Multi-purpose tong with horizontal rotary drive system
The four pick-up claws of the combination tongs can be moved by motor in longitudinal and transverse direction and rotated by 90 degrees. The two inner pick-up claws are designed for the transport of coils and can be folded. This means that this load handling device can also be used in confined spaces (e.g. loading and unloading lorries, wagons and freighters). Many different loads can be transported with these universal tongs. When handling sheet metal packages, palleted coils and containers, the four outer pick-up claws are used; when handling coils in horizontal axle position, the two inner pick-up claws are used.

Spindle drive, horizontal turning device. The particularly narrow pick-up claws enable easy gripping of the coils on the coil winder.
Horizontal turning gear with slewing ring design, motorised drive
Forms a robust bearing that can absorb large forces.
Hinged support prongs

Locking the coil tongs in the uppermost crane lifting position
for pendulum-free crane and trolley travel
With light barriers you can achieve quick and safe positioning of the tong arms in front of the coil eye. Particularly effective in combination with folding clamps. In this case, the operator only unfolds the claws when the light barriers indicate via signal lamps that the support claws are in the centre of the coil eye. This avoids unnecessary contact with the coil windings.
