Lloyds British a division of Speedy Asset Services Ltd have recently completed the supply of three 35 Tonne Capacity Mechanical Automatic Slab Handling Tongs destined for the Steel Authority of India for use within their Steel Plant at Rourkela in Orissa.

The Slab Tongs are purely mechanical in operation utilising gravity and mechanical advantages generated through the geometry of the tong to provide the necessary grip force to the slab sides. The tongs are fitted with the ultra-reliable Somers Automatic Latching Mechanism to provide “hands free” safe operation and are fitted with constant height locators to maintain a constant grip depth irrespective of slab width.
