Intercon Enterprises Inc., distributor of the TIGRIP line, recently announced the TBL Series Plate Clamp from the TIGRIP Material Handling Grabs Line. Unique in the plate steel handling industry, the new TBL Series Plate Clamp offers features with a focus on safety.
The 1.0 Ton to 3.0 Ton TBL Series Plate Clamp Models have a Safety Lever to lock open and lock closed. The Lock Open position is easy to set over the edge of plate material with no “jamming” or teeth chipping, which is possible with spring loaded cams. The Lock Closed position stops the clamp from “walking” at edge of plate during a horizontal to vertical lift at top/dead center. In addition, a large squared gripping pad provides 200% to 300% more contact area versus other clamps’ “buttons”, as well as a non-welded (bolted) multi-laminated plate body providing further safety benefits with the potential to expose abuse – permitting corrections for safe usage.
The TIGRIP line offers plate clamps, screw clamps, I-beam grabs and other material handling grabs for wide variety of lifting applications.
