Vertical plate clamp features and installation requirements

- Apr 22, 2019-

There are many types of vertical plate clamps when they are used, mainly horizontal and vertical cranes. It has a wide range of applications, such as shipyards, steel structure installation, steel market, machining, steel plate welding, steel plate cutting, horizontal steel plate handling, and vertical steel plate moving.


Vertical plate clamp features


The vertical plate clamp has light weight, simple structure and convenient use. As long as there is “electric hoist” or “car crane”, the lifting work can be completed. These products are forged with “low carbon high quality alloy steel”, which guarantees The impact resistance, load carrying capacity, toughness, and elongation of such tools greatly enhance the safety performance and longevity of such products.


When the vertical plate clamp is used in practice, the steel plate and the ground should have a gap, and the gap should be slightly larger than the thickness of the bottom of the clamp. Manually remove the tongs of the horizontal tongs to the maximum opening, and clamp the transverse tongs on the steel plate, with the side of the steel plate contacting the inner side of the transverse tongs. Before lifting, check that the center of gravity of the steel plate should be at the center of the polygons of the two sets of tongs. After lifting the steel plate, the steel plate should be horizontal. When the angle between the steel plate and the horizontal plane is greater than 7°, the horizontal clamp position should be re-adjusted. Pay particular attention to the situation where there is no beam. At this time, the angle between the steel plate and the horizontal plane should not exceed 5°, otherwise it must be reinstalled.


When the vertical plate clamp is not used, it can be stored indoors to avoid rusting of the steel plate clamp due to weather, temperature and temperature difference, which will seriously affect the function of the steel plate clamp.
