“Slabs” – large blocks of cast steel, copper or aluminium – are often transported in ironworks, aluminium smelters and steelworks in particular. Slab tongs from WIMO® make slab transportation quick and safe.
WIMO offers slab tongs that are custom-designed for the relevant application scenario for a careful and accident-proof materials handling process. WIMO® slab tongs are innovative, high-performance, specially designed tools that ensure careful transportation of slabs while improving occupational safety for employees. WIMO® slab tongs also feature a high-quality finish and are designed for an extra-long service life. The joints are extremely low-wear with special bearings. WIMO® also only uses ultrasonically tested sheet metal with factory certification and re-stamping certification. This WIMO® material flow solution is rounded off by expert contact persons and a first-class maintenance service.
The clamping force is generated by the lifting movement. Thus, no separate hydraulic unit is required for this solution.
In order to be able to cover a particularly large gripping area, the slab tongs are equipped with special guide housings.
Hydraulic leakage oil on the slab surface is prevented by the electromechanical drive.
To prevent deep gripping marks in the slab, the slab tongs are equipped with gripping tips that are particularly gentle on the material.
Particularly slim tong arm design ideal for space-saving loading of ovens.
The individually adaptable gripping system also allows different slab diameters to be transported.
with motorised adjustment of gripping width.
The gripping width can be adjusted smoothly via an integrated winch.
with motorised roll-up safety belts that are adjustable in longitudinal direction
Due to the tong suspension via four rope pulleys arranged in a rectangle, an absolutely horizontal transport of the slabs can be ensured.
