What Do Below-The-Hook Lifting Devices Do?

Below-the-hook lifting devices are important attachments that facilitate the efficient and safe transportation of various loads. They increase the versatility of traditional overhead cranes and manipulators by providing a wide range of outcomes tailored to individual applications.

Grippers are a type of below-the-hook lifting device that can grip, lift, and rotate a load. They are used in all industries, particularly for assembly lines, as they allow workers to move items efficiently, easily, and without concern of injury.

As part of a full turnkey solution, below-the-hook lifting devices can be equipped with hoists, light crane systems, or industrial manipulators, creating an adaptable solution for many industries. They are also a cost-effective solution. Below-the-hook lifting devices are low maintenance, and regular servicing further reduces downtime and disruption. Multiple below-the-hook lifting devices can be provided, including manual clamps, pneumatic grippers, and scissor grab grippers.

Hydraulic Grippers Side View

Hydraulic Grippers

Hydraulic grippers are heavy-duty lifting devices that can apply the force required to handle heavy components. For manual handling problems that require very high loads to be supported and manipulated, hydraulic grippers are the go-to lifting device.

Hydraulic grippers are used when an extensive amount of force is required to lift and manipulate a load. They are ideal for work environments with tight space restrictions that need a high-power solution.

Handling Concepts' Manual Clamp Grippers Material Handling Equipment Solution

Manual Clamp Grippers

Manual clamp grippers require no power or air supply and are manually activated. They offer a safer, faster, and simpler alternative to powered clamps. This makes them a cost-effective solution to manual handling problems.

Manual control is often chosen, so that operation remains simple and time efficient. The solid design and single operator control provide a safe lifting experience.

Pneumatic Grippers Jaws

Pneumatic Grippers

Pneumatic grippers are compact but powerful below-the-hook devices capable of lifting almost any load. Many work environments already have an air supply available to use. Therefore, pneumatic grippers are often favoured by businesses as part of the lifting solution is already in place.

The ergonomic design of pneumatic grippers can be used for a wide range of applications. They have exceptional versatility, flexibility, and easy-to-use controls.

Scissor Grab Grippers gripping component

Scissor Grab Grippers

Scissor grab grippers, also known as scissor clamps, scissor lifts or scissor lifting clamps, are below-the-hook lifting devices designed to grab and lift heavy components. A simple but effective lifting device, scissor grab grippers are low maintenance, which reduces the risk of breakdowns and downtime.

The weight of the load being handled pulls the gripper’s jaws closed, creating a self-locking mechanism. This means the gripper can grab and lift components by establishing its own grip force.

Turning Grippers Side View

Turning Grippers

Turning grippers are robust lifting devices used to lift, grab, and rotate components during assembly. They have a unique design that allows them to grip components with ease. Turning grippers feature a simple control panel that can be used by a single operator.

These below-the-hook lifting devices can have a variety of safe working loads. They can lift loads that are too heavy for a worker to handle.
