Synchronised, multi-point lifting is the theme of the Enerpac stand at Bauma 2016. Enerpac is featuring the industry leading, EVO-Series Synchronised Lifting system, and new EVO-Mini for smaller lifting jobs. In addition, it will be demonstrating the Bauma Innovation Award finalist, the SHAS-Series – Autonomous SyncHoist system – enabling accurate positioning of heavy, unbalanced loads with a single crane. Enerpac’s new bolting tools the PTW-Series pneumatic wrenches and S&W-Series torque wrenches will also be shown on the Enerpac stand.
The EVO-Mini combines high pressure hydraulics with a PLC system to monitor and control precise movement and positioning of heavy loads in a compact simple-to-use package. It can be used with standard 700 bar single or double acting cylinders to control up to 8 jacking points with one hydraulic power unit (HPU).
SHAS-Series Autonomous SyncHoist is ideal for high precision load manoeuvring with a single crane. Deployed below-the-hook, SyncHoist comprises four independent, self-contained PLC-controlled hydraulic lifting cylinders, used either directly between cables or under an auxiliary frame, enabling accurate hoisting where space is limited.
Alternative Lifting – Enerpac Jack Up Systems (EJ)
Enerpac is also announcing the EJ500 and EJ5000 series Jack Up systems, a custom developed multipoint lifting system. A typical system set up includes four jack up units positioned under each corner of a load. A four unit jack up has a lifting capacity of 2,000 ton (500 ton per unit). The EJ500 has an external power unit and lifts up to 10m, the EJ5000 has an internal power unit and can lift up to 20m.
High Capacity Gantries
The Enerpac stand will include the SL400-Series gantry crane capable of lifting 408 ton. Hydraulic gantries are a safe, efficient way to lift and position heavy loads in applications where traditional cranes will not fit and permanent overhead structures for job cranes are not an option. When used with a roller track, the gantries provide a means of moving and placing heavy loads.
For heavier lifts, Enerpac is announcing the MBL-series hydraulic gantries for loads up to 600 ton lifted to over 14m. The MBL series offers high levels of stability allowing lifts using two legs as well as four legs.
Intellilift Remote Control
Accurate wireless control of lifting operations is the trademark of Enerpac synchronised lift, jack-up and gantry systems. The Intellilift portable wireless control unit allows a single operator controls and oversees the entire lifting job. The wireless controller allows the operator to work at a safe distance.
Self-Propelled Modular Trailer
Remote control is vital to the new Enerpac Self-Propelled Modular Trailer SPMT600 which features minimised height and slim design, making it easy to operate in confined spaces. It is controlled by a single operator using Intellidrive wireless control.
The six axle SPMT600 can move loads up to 60 ton. Multiple configurations are possible with up to three SPMT units supported by a single hydraulic power unit. A major operational benefit of the SPMT design is the ability to fit two SPMT600 units and power pack in a single 20 foot container.
