Transportation of tools plays a particularly important role in the automotive industry. Tools need to be replaced as quickly as possible while being safe for employees. Pressing tool tongs from WIMO® are the ideal tool transportation solution for these challenges.
WIMO Hebetechnik supplies custom-designed and highly innovative solutions that are calibrated for the individual application scenario in the company. A WIMO® tool gripper features tong arms that are adjustable on the longitudinal and lateral side. These enable tools to be gripped on both their longitudinal side and front side – so that tools with very different widths and lengths can be transported. Using additional weld-on hooks, further goods can also be transported. Pressing tool tongs from WIMO® can also transport multiple tools at the same time, which saves money particularly in large process organisations. Pressing tool tongs from WIMO® handle the tools carefully so that no damage occurs: For example, load securing devices prevent tool tongs from opening unintentionally while under load. In addition, an integrated slewing gear makes it easier to position the tools in the warehouse. With this lifting technology solution from WIMO®, fully automated tool transportation is also possible.
The two centring pins fix the pressing tool tongs in the uppermost lifting position. This enables precise positioning in the direction of crane and cross travel. Together with the integrated path measuring systems, this enables the automatic storage and retrieval of pressing tools.
Thanks to the infinitely adjustable telescopic arms, the load suspension points can be adapted to the load attachment points. This makes slinging with heavy slings much easier.
