(also see the section ‘How to use the grippers correctly for
vertical lifting’ on page 37)
– Never operate with an untested or unapproved lifting gripper.
– Always maintain a safe distance during the lifting operation and never remain under the load.
– Do not use a damaged gripper; have it repaired by Movintech or by another qualified and reputable mechanical service and repair centre.
If in doubt, consult your supplier.
– Never lift more than one blade at a time.
– Never lift blades heavier than the WWL, as indicated on the gripper itself and on the test certificate.
– Never lift blades that weigh less than 10% of the WWL as clearly indicated on the gripper and on the certificate.
– Do not lift blades that are thicker or thinner than the jaw opening, as indicated on the grippers and test certificate.
– Be careful when lifting from a non-vertical position.
non verticale. The working load limit (WLL) can be considerably reduced in these lifting situations.
– When using multiple grippers, positioned opposite to each other, provide lifting slings or chains of sufficient length to ensure that
the angle between the slings or chains does not exceed 60 degrees.
– When working simultaneously with a certain number of lifting grippers placed side by side, use a lifting beam (balancer) and lifting slings or chains of sufficient length
to ensure that the lifting handles on the equipment are never subjected to a sideways lift.
– Do not place the gripper on truncated cone or conical shaped parts in the blade or structure to be lifted.
– Remove all grease, oil, dirt, corrosion and scrap from the rolling mill at the point where the gripper is to be attached.
– The hardness of the blade surface must not exceed 37 HrC (345 Hb, 1166 N/mm2). For the TSU-R lifting gripper, note that the hardness of the blade surface must not exceed 30 HrC (283 Hb, 945 N/mm2).
– The vice is only suitable for use in normal weather conditions.
