Press release date: December 9, 2010

Milwaukee, WI - Bushman AvonTec has developed a coil grab which easily handles densely packed slit coils.

CoilPlus-Berwick Steel needed to find a way to insert and remove thin slit steel coils (down to 1" wide) from a storage rack. The coils are closely stacked in the rack with a narrow 1 1/2" space between them.

Bushman AvonTec came up with the solution: an adjustable coil lifter with flexible lifting legs that fit between the coils and rotate into the ID for a safe lift. The hooks are adjustable in two inch increments to permit handling coils of varying thickness. "The main advantage of these lifters is that the feet rotate," says Larry Wood, Maintenance/ Safety Coordinator at Coil Plus. To remove a coil, the hooks are lowered with the feet parallel to the coils. Once the feet are in the ID of the coil, they are turned 90 degrees so they can lift the coil without damaging it or neighboring coils. "Since it arrived," Wood said, "the Bushman AvonTec lifter has been doing a great job."
