Coil Contact Plates

In this post I am going to discuss the benefits of having coil contact plates installed on your telescoping coil grabs.

This safety feature consists of a spring-loaded smooth alloy steel faceplate with limit switch in each leg. These limit switches can be wired to illuminate a signal lamp located on the frame of the grab to notify your operator that the legs are closed on the coil wall. Additionally, the limit switches can be interlocked with your grab close circuit to stop the legs from applying unnecessary force on the coil walls. 

If you have any questions regarding coil contact plates, or any other aspect of your coil handling operations, please contact us today and we will be happy to help recommend the best solution for your application.
