What Are 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. They require no power or air supply and are manually activated.

Each individual scissor grab has a versatile lifting capacity, as the weight of the load pulls the gripper jaws closed, creating a self-locking mechanism. This means the grippers can grab and lift components by establishing their own grip force.

Grippers are important attachments that facilitate the efficient and safe transportation of various types of loads. Scissor grab grippers offer a safer, faster, and simpler alternative to powered grippers. This makes them a cost-effective solution to manual handling problems.

Why Are Scissor Grab Grippers Used?

Scissor grab grippers increase the versatility of traditional overhead cranes. In low-speed cycle work for gripping and lifting various loads, they are a low-cost approach to achieving the required result.

A simple but effective lifting device, scissor grab grippers are low maintenance, which reduces the risk of breakdowns and downtime. This makes them a suitable replacement for traditional rigging slings and hardware, as they offer better security and longevity. The solid design and single operator control provide a safe lifting experience.

They can also be supplied as part of a full turnkey solution. Scissor grab grippers integrate well with overhead cranes, light crane systems and chain hoists.
