Enerpac introduces SL gantry range

Enerpac has introduced the latest additions to its range of lifting equipment - the SL100 and SL200 Super Lift hydraulic gantries - offering higher lifting capacities on a narrow 610 mm track gauge.

The SL100 and SL200, with lifting capacities of 100 tons (90.7 tonnes) and 200 tons (181.4 tonnes) respectively, feature two-stage lift cylinders and a maximum lifting heights of up to 4.75 m (SL100) and 6.7 m (SL200).

According to Enerpac, typical applications for the SL system include the transportation and installation of presses, machine tools, electrical transformers and injection moulding machines.

Designed for safe lifting in confined or limited-access spaces, the SL gantries are easy to mobilise and demobilise and include self-contained hydraulics that allow for quicker and safer deployment, added Enerpac.

Each gantry leg features self-propelled wheels for travel along the narrow gauge track together with the company’s proprietary Intellilift synchronised control system.

“With significant growth in a number of industrial sectors, the SL100 and SL200 models were designed to meet the need for greater lifting capacities and new applications,” said Peter Crisci, product line director for Enerpac’s Heavy Lifting Technology division.

Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology said it has made major investments at its Hengelo manufacturing site in the Netherlands over the past 12 months. This has resulted in a significant reduction in delivery times and enabled it to manufacture for stock. The Super Lift hydraulic gantries are typically available immediately, said Enerpac.
