Single Pivot Ingot Tongs

These tongs are ideal for handling metal billets. The pad either indents with replaceable grips or the pad lifts by friction. An articulating pad, not shown in image, can 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.

These tongs are all made to order. Please contact us at to get a quote on these tongs.
