Two automatic tongs for German company Becker Stahl-Service

Initial situation

Requested by Airpes’ customer Becker Stahl-Service to manufacture 2 units of full automatic Packet-Tongs, up to SWL 7,5t.

They have to be able to achieve the efficiency and delivery times for which Becker’s warehouse is known.

Airpes' solutions

Airpes designed, manufactured and installed both units. They can be used in manual or automatic mode, they can lift up to 3 packets of rectangular plates in 3 different formats. The units are controlled by AUTEC remote controls and give the warehouse the flexibility to work safe and on time.

The units are compact and designed to work in 3 shifts and to ensure that the packets are not damaged during the transportation. This packet-tongs have also a rotating head for positioning the loads if needed.


In conjunction with Becker, Airpes has designed, manufactured and installed the units of full automatic Packet-Tongs in their factory in Bönen, Germany.
