Rotating grabs more commonly known as the rotating axis grabs are used in the load movements. These are fixed on the ends of the load and then these are rotated by which the orientation of the load is changed as well. This is used to rotate the load around the horizontal axis. The power source of this could either be electric or motor and some versions of the rotating grab could be manually as well.
Weight capacity of the rotating grab:
There are number of companies providing high quality rotating grabs used with the excavators. These are designed according to the models of the excavators and each one of these is different in size and could carry different weights. The common range for these are from 1.5 to 50 tons.
The rotating grabs are used in the constructions and are mostly used for the demolitions of various kind of structures. These also help in the movement of the demolished materials. The design of these enable them to move through an angle of 360 degrees. This makes them suitable for the no optimal conditions and the operators can use these in various conditions. The materials used to make these are high quality steel resistant so that the jaws of these do not get abrasion. The durability of this is increased by the use of this material.
Features of the rotating grab:
There is lighter version of the rotating grab also available in the market that are designed for the chipping and clearing and the maximum weight capacity of these kinds of the rotating grabs is 5 tons. Moreover, these are used in the logging applications because these kind of tasks require frequent repositioning and rotations of the machine and this task becomes very easy with the rotating grab and it saves much time and effort as well as the cost.
Applications of the rotating grab:
The efficiency of the assembly processes has been significantly increased by the use of the rotating grab. Assemblers in the assembly process require the access to various heights and depths and the rotating grab design helps them with the positioning of the cases of gear properly and this is how the safety of the product is ensured and the product is assembled without any kind of the damage and this is how it the processes are improved. The gripping force of the rotating grab is also manageable and is handled automatically by the inclining planes. This gripping force is applied based on the weights attached. The motor is protected by the reducer which is designed to limit the torque. There are many other additional features as well that are attached with the rotating bucket grapple to make it customized and more effective and all of these are easily available.
