Our crane-based grippers can be added to an existing crane system or supplied as part of a turnkey package. They can be used for pick and place as well as re-orientation of components underneath a crane hook. We offer hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical and vacuum versions as well as manual/scissor grip.
Below-the-hook attachments can really extend the versatility of the traditional EOT crane. In low speed cycle work for gripping and turning-over various loads they are a low-cost approach to achieving the required result. Also, vacuum grip units working beneath a crane are ideal for non-porous sheet materials and have large grip capacity. We have built material handling solutions for large fabricated vessels, large pipe-fittings, press tools, steel sheet and many others.
Capacity and capability is only really limited by the crane itself and the constraints posed by the load to be lifted and the surrounding area.
As we start the new year with a significant amount of uncertainty, we would like to wish our customers, suppliers, colleagues and friends a safe, happy and prosperous 2021.
Please be assured that in spite of the current challenges presented by the Covid Virus and the national lockdown that we are currently facing, Handling Concepts is fully operational. Our design and support teams are safely working from home whilst our production and service teams continue to operate responsibly in our factory and on the road following the guidance on social distancing, wearing masks, hand sanitising etc. Most sales enquiries will be managed remotely via video calls but our sales engineers are available to visit customers when required.
We will soon be in touch with customers to ensure that annual service requirements are booked and that you have any necessary spares to keep your handling equipment in good order.
