TongsTongs are relatively simple mechanisms and usually a good starting point when considering lifting equipment options. Tongs apply a clamping force in proportion to the weight of the load. A properly designed Tong will apply sufficient force to safely lift the load, yet not damage the product.
Bradley Lifting has designed and manufactured an extremely wide range of Tongs. Some Tongs will grip on the outside diameter, others on the inside diameter. Bradley engineers have created Tong mechanisms that can lift multiple items at once or even grip a load sideways!
An automatic latching mechanism allows the Tong to open and close with no outside intervention, relying only on the vertical movement of the Tong. Depending on the application, Tongs can also be configured with a manual release or clamping by pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders.
Bradley Lifting produces mill-duty Tongs that provide years of reliable service in the harshest of environments. Features include:
