In some branches of industry, heavy loads with special dimensions need to be transported. These may include sheet metal, steel girders, rails or the like. Tongs for long loads from WIMO® turn this challenge into child’s play.
Tongs for long loads are a special form of transport equipment. As the name suggests, they are designed to pick up and transport long loads and place them into storage. Solutions from WIMO® for this task are available in different designs. For example, mechanical tongs for long loads may be the right choice depending on the application. Or maybe tongs for long loads with gripper units that are motorised so the length can be adjusted. The relevant design varies depending on the goods being transported and can be specified in each individual case. Like our other lifting technology solutions, the tongs for long loads from WIMO® transport loads safely while protecting the materials.
Due to the hydraulic drive of the telescopic movement, a smooth adjustment is possible. In addition, the adjustment can be carried out during the positioning of the crane to save time.
The centring pins fix the stacking yoke crossbeam in the uppermost lifting position. This enables exact positioning in the direction of the crane and trolley travel.
The crane connection via 4 rope pulleys arranged in a rectangle prevents a tilted position despite one-sided loading.
In manual operating mode, the weld-on hooks of the stacking yoke crossbeam can be used to transport a wide variety of loads and load them onto trucks. It is therefore not necessary to remove the lifting beam from the crane.
The stacking yoke crossbeam can be supplied and controlled directly from the sideloader. This non-stationary solution offers maximum flexibility.
