Overhead product clamp

Attachments in the manufacturer’s BlockMaster range include the J250R, a rotating overhead block clamp suited to operations where finished products need to be securely clamped and rotated in a particular way. Additionally, the BlockMaster WR400T is an overhead block clamp with twin pack consolidation. It ensures what product engineers contend are optimum performance and maximum productivity when handling two block packs. The WR400T is rated at 8,500 lbs. and has a 48-in. inside height.

The BlockMaster standard and specialist range offerings cuts handling and loading times for concrete and clay products. Three- and four-pack devices afford secure and reliable handling of multiple brick packs in one single lift. Individual head movement allows packs on a conveyor with spaces between to be brought together quickly and efficiently for instant storage and transport.

The Brick Tine attachment suits brick production sites that require packs to be handled in a kiln. It allows pallet-less handling of the units by clamping the pack at the base. The Kiln Tine attachment greatly reduces the likelihood that the bricks will be damaged when they are moved around site, thereby protecting investment and preventing the high cost of replacing damaged goods. To further protect product, the pressure of the Brick Tine’s grip on the pack is controlled by mechanical springs on link rods. Operated by a single rear hydraulic cylinder, the rods provide the safest grip at the lowest pressure to the product. The tines have both upper and lower replaceable strips, which hold the product without causing it any damage. The attachment is fitted with an additional side shift facility to allow for safe and precise loading. — B&B Attachments, United Kingdom, www.bandbattachments.com; North American representative, Lift Technologies, 888/946-3330, www.lift-tek.com
