Airpes’ lifting tongs designs are engineered to safely grab and lift a wide variety of materials and objects from any of the existing crane configurations. Lifting tongs can be used in a variety of applications, whether for a generic or specific job.
Each one of Airpes’ scissors lifting tongs goes through a previous design process in which all the critical variables are taken into account so that the performance of the machine is the most adequate and adapted to each client.
There are many different kinds of tongs, the most common are the Coil Lifting Tongs, which design with mechanized opening designed to handle coils of different types of material, and the Scissor Lifting Tongs which close the load by applying pressure.
Some Scissor Lifting Tongs Predesigns
Rounded Closure: Perfect for handling pipes or materials with rounded profiles, such as logs
Lateral Closure: The load is held by the lateral pressure of the clamp. They are used for lifting plates, bars and beams of steel and other materials.
Electric/ Hydraulic Closure: The clamps are closed mechanically, either electrically or electrically/hydraulically.
