The HKT double brick & block clamp consists of two in-line hydraulic brick and block clamps suspended in line alongside one another from a beam. This lets you pick up and move two adjacent products simultaneously. The clamps are typically mounted on the heavy-duty type of forklift trucks. Our entire range of HK brick and block clamps can be used in twin set-ups.
Compared to a single set-up, this saves one return trip per transport movement, which can have a positive impact on:
Transport/production times/operating hours
Wear & tear
At a brickworks site, there are a lot of movements involving the company’s own forklift trucks, external hauliers in addition to pedestrians wo may or may not be keeping to the marked paths. The safe movement of brick packs is therefore of paramount importance. The generally higher forklift truck (and sitting position) and the open JKB construction between the clamp and the beam provide a clear view of the surroundings, allowing the pallet-free movement of stone packs with the greatest of ease.
Benefits of the JKB HKT double brick and block clamp:
Pick up two packs at a time.
Disengage one clamp to pick up the final pack from the conveyor.
Extremely stable clamping
Clear view of the clamp and surroundings through the clamp structure.

There are various ways of attaching the clamp to the forklift, each with its own advantages. It can be attached using:
FEM/ISO crane arm
Integrated crane arm
Depending on the selected suspension, we can increase the functionality of the clamp still further to allow:
Positioning (in connection with products with varying centre-to-centre distances)
Hydraulic width adjustment: I. HP: Adjustment using cylinder with short pins (depending on gap positions) II. TR: Stepless width adjustment using screw spindle and hydraulic motor III. PV: Stepless width adjustment by direct control of width adjustment cylinders
Capacity: 4,500 – 5,500 kg Max operating pressure: 140 bar / 14 MPa – 200 bar / 20 MPa (opening/closing)
