Bushman AvonTec designs and manufactures a complete line of
tongs for lifting and moving a wide range of industrial loads.
We design each tong for the size, shape and weight and special
conditions in your particular application.
Bushman AvonTec lifters are designed and manufactured
according to the latest revisions of ASME Specifications B30.20
and BTH-1, Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices. Each
tong is equipped with our automatic latching device that provides
safe and reliable operation of the clamping mechanism.
LIFTING TONGS
BASIC TONG CONFIGURATIONS
Supporting Tong
For single-size objects that
have support clearance
underneath, such as boxes,
crates, bins and containers.
The lifting feet of the tong
support the load and
maintain it on a horizontal
lifting plane.
Gripping Tong
For materials such as ingots, rolls, tubes,
pipes and other round or cylindrical
objects. The tongs extend beyond and
below the center of the load to provide
additional support. The diameter of the
load may vary by approximately 25%,
but the variation in length is generally
unlimited.
Pressure Tong
For gripping the vertical sides of slabs,
bales, boxes, billets and other flat or round
objects. Pads on pressure tongs provide
surface friction or penetration of the load
to maintain a safe hold during handling.
Pads can come with rubber, belting, pins,
points, serrated bits and other materials.
BASIC TONG CONFIGURATIONS
Each tong is equipped with the Bushman AvonTec automatic latching device that provides safe and reliable operation
of the clamping mechanism. To operate the latch:
With the lift open,
position the tong
over the load to be
picked up. Unit will
be in open position.
Lower the tong onto
the load. With the
tong resting on the
load, and hoist
tension released, the
latch automatically
disengages from the
locked open position.
Raise the hoist to allow the tong
pads to close onto load. Then lift
and move the load to the desired
location. To release the load, lower
the tong and place the load on
the ground to relieve tension. The
latch will automatically lock the
tong in the open position. Then raise
the hoist to remove the tong.
AUTOMATIC LATCHING DEVICE
CUSTOM LIFTING TONGS
Lay down tongs grip round or straight sided ingots
or slabs to lift them vertically and lay them down
to the horizontal position. They can be operated
manually or motorized.
This tong can attach to
the forks of a fork
truck.
This custom tong lifts
long billets vertically.
This three-leg tong
lifts barrels from
under the top lid.
This 10-ton tong grips
irregular shaped rocks
in a mining crusher
This 30-ton capacity hydraulic gripping
slab/bloom tong is lighter than a conventional
tong and doesn’t require automatic latching or an
open/close hoist.
