Orange peel grapples POM line are designed to handle rocks. They’re gripping devices with independent tines, each one set in motion by a double-acting hydraulic cylinder. This allows the equipment to have a good grip on non-symmetrical objects like natural stones and rocks. The oil flow must be provided by the machine on which the grapple is installed.
IDROBENNE offer two standard models. The very compact design of POM – 3/350 rock grapple make it the best solution for truck cranes, where dimensions and weight are the key points.Model POM – 4/550-P is instead intended for excavators up to 30 Tons.
The grapple’s innovative design allows the equipment to incorporate a rotation mechanism, both mechanical, (limited 250° rotation) or hydraulic (continuous rotation). In POM rock grapples these devices are easily interchangeable, without any modification in the overall dimensions.
Rock grapples are gripping devices with independent tines, each one set in motion by a double-acting hydraulic cylinder. This allows the equipment to have a good grip on non-symmetrical objects like natural rocks.
Rock grapples are made using high tensile strength steel (WELDOX – DOMEX) for structural parts and use wear plates (HARDOX) for parts in contact with the handled materials, such as the tines and the tips.Large diameter, induction hardened chrome pins and bushings are used in all grapple junction points.
The rock grapples must be mounted on operating machines through a cardan link that allows “pendulum” movement in the four horizontal directions. IDROBENNE can supply custom-made links for any operating machine on the market.
