July 20 - Enerpac has introduced an Ultra-Flat hydraulic cylinder series for projects with small working space but large lifting requirements up to 1,000 tons (907.1 tonnes).

The CULP-Series, which has a lifting capacity ranging from 10 to 50 tons (9 to 45 tonnes), and the CUSP-Series with capacities of 10 to 1,000 tons (9 to 907 tonnes), are designed for applications where high lifting forces are needed in confined spaces, says Enerpac.

The Ultra-Flat cylinders provide a 7 - 17 mm stroke, and are designed to withstand up to 4 percent side load at full lifting capacity. The CUSP-Series has an integrated tilting function up to 4 degrees, and a 6 - 10 mm tilted stroke.

The CULP cylinders are equipped with safety features, which prevent the plunger from accidentally dropping at the end of its stroke, while the CUSP cylinders feature a visual indicator to the operator when the maximum stroke has been reached.

Both series of the Ultra-Flat hydraulic cylinders feature nitro-carburising surface treatment to provide greater load and wear resistance, as well as corrosion protection in the harshest working conditions.

The CULP-Series and CUSP-Series can be used with Enerpac hydraulic pumps.
