Nordgreif’s versatile coil grab for horizontal and vertical coils

First-time European presentation at EuroBLECH 2018: The combination coil grab designed for an Australian continental-wide group of steel service centers. The smart design allows handling of coils with horizontal axis as well as single or stacked (split) coils with “eye to the sky”. Easy tool-free change-over within seconds.

Shown at the exhibition is the fifth combined horizontal/vertical grab for the Australian consortium. The economical and operational advantages with the first of these flexible coil grabs have stimulated the acquisition of further grabs within the group. It goes without saying that all the typical benefits of NORDGREIF coil grabs have found their way as well. All operational and safety sensors are wired to the control cabinet installed at the top main frame. There are load control sensors avoiding opening the grab under load. Inner and outer contact bars at the legs signal coil contact to the operator and protect the drives against overload. Further sensors are installed to stop the opening and closing movements as well as the rotation at their limit positions. Operators are being shown the current status of the grab by sturdy display lights.

Next to these versatile combination coil grabs further NORDGREIF electromotive heavy duty horizontal grabs for mother coils as well as special lifters for sheet stacks on pallets are in service at several locations of the nation-wide Australian consortium.

The grab displayed at the EuroBLECH with its suspension for two parallel hoists, the electromotive slewing unit, the working load limit of 6,3 tons as well as for the grab range of 400–1525 mm for the horizontal coils or the (stacked) height of max. 910mm for the vertical coils is specifically designed for the Australian consortium. NORDGREIF with its team of experienced designers directly linked to the factory in Schenefeld/Germany is capable and flexible for customized solutions considering your special needs. Other lifting tasks are also covered to a great extent by standard stock items or customized special solutions.
