Slabs and Plates
Series 600 – Grabs for Handling Blooms and Plates
These GRABS can grip the upper ends of slabs and plates and permit extraction from the casting well and tilting through 90° of the same, from the vertical position to the horizontal one. They then lie the product on the ground in a horizontal position.
As an option, this same equipment can be used for storage and stacking in a horizontal position, by gripping the centre of the material to be handled. The effective gripping of the slabs and plates takes place through two point support bracket groups each fitted to one of the two gripping jaws operated by a pantograph multiplier group. In this way, gripping that prevents slipping or release is guaranteed, even in the moment of rotation from a vertical position to a horizontal one.
