Double Pivot Billet Tongs

These tongs are ideal for handling metal billets. The pad either indents with replaceable grips or machined grooves in the pad or the pad lifts by friction. The pads may be mounted on trunnions so that the material may be rotated from horizontal to vertical or vertical to horizontal. The articulating pad shown in image allow for a range of diameters to be lifted by these tongs. These tongs are supplied with a semi-automatic latch which requires an operator to latch the tong to disengage the billet.

Other pad arrangements are available.
