The process of downending aluminum ingots is full of safety concerns, including the ultimate risk of dropping an ingot. The leading cause of dropping an ingot during the downending process is crane operator error. Bradley Motorized Vertical Ingot Grabs incorporate redundant locking systems to ensure that the grip is not compromised when laying down ingots, providing the utmost safety and productivity for stripping vertical casting pits. Self-locking drive components, as well as hydraulic wedge locks, are incorporated into every Bradley Motorized Vertical Ingot Grab to optimize the safety of our equipment.

If you have any questions about Bradley Motorized Vertical Ingot Grabs, or anything else, please contact us today and we will be happy to help recommend the best solution for your application.
