COIL GRAB FOR DENSELY PACKED, THIN SLIT COILS

Bushman AvonTec designed an adjustable coil lifter with flexible lifting legs that fit between the coils and rotate into the ID for a safe lift of thin steel coils.

This adjustable coil lifter uses flexible lifting legs that fit between the coils and rotate into the ID for a safe lift of thin steel coils.

Bushman AvonTec (Butler, WI) has developed a coil grab which easily handles densely packed slit coils.

CoilPlus-Berwick Steel needed to find a way to insert and remove thin slit steel coils (down to 1 in wide) from a storage rack. The coils are closely stacked in the rack, with a narrow 1½ in space between them. Bushman AvonTec came up with the solution: an adjustable coil lifter with flexible lifting legs that fit between the coils and rotate into the ID for a safe lift.

The hooks are adjustable in  2 in increments to permit handling coils of varying thickness. “The main advantage of these lifters is that the feet rotate,” says Larry Wood, maintenance/ safety coordinator at Coil Plus. “Since it arrived, this lifter has been doing a great job.”
