Enerpac adds gantry upgrade

May 9 - Enerpac has introduced its newest telescopic hydraulic gantry - the SBL900 - which has a foldable boom, maximum lift height of 37 ft (11.3 m) and capacity ranging from 667 to 1,009 tons (605 to 915 tonnes).

The gantry has been tested to 120 percent of its capacity at full extension and witness tested by a qualified third party organisation, said Enerpac.

It can be operated locally at each of the gantry's four legs or using the Intellilift remote control. The wireless system ensures automatic synchronisation of lifting with accuracy of 1 inch (25,4 mm) and automatic synchronisation of travel with accuracy of 0.60 inch (15 mm).

Equipped with two-stage lifting cylinders, the SBL900 system can handle up to 667 tons (605 tonnes) at the top of the second stage.

"Providing a more advanced solution than standard lifting systems, the SBL900 hydraulic gantry offers unique features such as a wireless control system and integrated self-propelled drive system," said Peter Crisci at Enerpac.

The new gantry also features an octagonal boom with added strength for increased capacity and lifting height, and a foldable boom, which Enerpac says enables easy transport and setup.
