The Automatic Vertical Coil Tong (VCT) Double Grip Type - is designed to lift coils in a vertical (eye-to-sky) position.
The tong is 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, by placing the cone into the center of the coil. By raising the tong, the cone and both gripping shoes clamp the coil automatically.
The suspension assembly is designed to accommodate standard crane hooks. The suspension is fixed by pull pins. Customized suspensions on request.


Available Options

  • Suspension custom-made
  • Suspension for free hook leading - no floor personnel required.
  • Adjustable outer shoe
  • Anti-scuffing device with wear plates
