Caldwell launches TLC clamp

The Caldwell Group has launched a clamp designed for lifting and turning curved plate or pipe from horizontal to vertical positions, and vice versa.

The turning, locking, curved (TLC) clamp lifts and rotates structures 90 degrees, and incorporates a vertical lifting clamp equipped with a ‘lock open’ and ‘lock closed’ feature.

The TLC is available with lifting capacities up to 20 tons (18.1 tonnes).

Dale Kelly, engineering manager at Caldwell’s J. C. Renfroe & Sons brand, said: “The TLC’s main purpose is to lift pipes, but it can also lift any curved surface that meets the clamp’s minimum radius specifications. The minimum radius is different for each tonnage of clamp… As the clamp gets bigger the minimum radius of plate needs to get bigger. For instance a 1-ton (0.907 tonnes) clamp can lift a smaller pipe than the 10-ton (9.07 tonnes) version.”
