The Hydraulic Horizontal Coil Tong type is designed to lift coils in a horizontal position.
The tongs are robustly engineered for heavy duty application to meet the severe demands of steel- and aluminium rolling mills.

The crane operator controls the entire lifting process from the crane cabin. The tog is operated by a hydraulic system mounted on the tong.
The electrical circuit to the control box is carried out by plug-in connection. This enables quick removal of the tong from the crane. Safety is guaranteed by the self-closing tong mechanism and the shear effect proportional to the load’s weight.
The suspension assembly is designed to accommodate standard crane hooks. The standard suspension is fixed by pull pins. Customized suspensions on request.
