Pressure tongs require a grip ratio along with pad or point material specifically selected for the product being lifted. Straight sided products must have a sufficient coefficient of friction between the product and the gripping pads to ensure a safe lift.
Supporting tongs are designed and limited to lifting a specific sized product. They maintain the lifting feet on a horizontal plane, which is imperative to ensure full surface contact between the product and the tong lifting feet.
Gripping tongs are specifically designed for handling cylindrical products by gripping the product around the outside diameter above and below the product center line ensuring support and a positive holding advantage.
