Series 72 Parallel Arm Coil Tongs

These tongs are for handling any coiled material having an open core, such as steel or aluminum. Parallel arm tongs save valuable floor space in storage and handling areas. This tong requires only a narrow aisle for removal of the tong from the coil, thus enabling the coils to be stacked close together.

The tongs are balanced for rapid easy adjustment. Only a light pull on the hand chain is required to open or close the tong. When under load the tong exerts a positive closing force which provides a grabbing action on the coil.

The lifting pads are curved and all parts that may contact the load are smoothly finished to minimize chance of damage to the coiled material.
