Motorized Rotating Horizontal Axis Grabs For Mining Equipment

Posted In: ,

Bushman Equipment, Inc recently delivered two motorized rotating horizontal axis grabs to a leading manufacturer of mining equipment. The lifting devices attach to overhead traveling cranes, allowing them to lift and rotate forgings and partially machined gears and pinion shafts.

A 15,000 lb capacity unit (shown on the left) handles ring gears from 3 to 10 feet in diameter and up to 23” thick.  Multiple sets of lifting pads were provided to match the workpiece being lifted.

A 10,000 lb capacity unit (shown on the right) can rotate pinion shafts 10” to 36” in diameter, up to 90” long.

The lifters are designed to operate on 460/3/60 power supply.
