Tongs "KHK" for rails of "UIC" type

Tongs for rails with manual control are designed to grip always five pieces of rails in the position "with the feet as near as possible". Principally it is the system of shaped racks with the left-handed and right-handed noses. The left and right racks are adjustable against each other and their two extreme positions are arrested. In order to attain the maximum safety there are used two types of safety device. One is controlled automatically and the other manually.
