New Trolley, Gantries and Cube Jack Systems from Enerpac
Enerpac is expanding its range of lifting systems for industrial movers and heavy lift contractors with the launch of new trolley and cube jack systems, and telescopic hydraulic gantries, at Bauma 2019 on booth FS 1105/1.
Skidding systems are an important element in many heavy lift projects. The Enerpac Trolley System ETR1250 provides an alternative method with increased benefits over traditional skidding methods. It comprises electrically-driven trolleys which can carry heavy loads along a fixed rail system. Compared with skidding systems, the trolley offers continuous movement allowing for significantly faster travel. The trolley system was successfully deployed on a jack-up vessel for a recent GeoSea Geotechnical & Offshore Solutions project. This involved the movement of 500 ton offshore wind monopile transition pieces some 90m across the ship’s deck to within range of the on-board crane for offshore installation.
With the growing success of Enerpac Jacking Systems, Enerpac announces the SCJ50 50T Cube Jack. It is designed to provide an alternative to traditional climbing jack systems and works in a similar way to Enerpac’s current jack-up system but without the necessary electrical controls. The Enerpac SCJ50 Cube Jack offers contractors a safer alternative to jack and pack with wooden cribbing. It also has a significantly smaller footprint, providing heavy lift contractors with a more stable lift up to 2m and where space is restricted.
Safe operation is built-in with the self-locking design. Blocks are stacked manually, with a mechanical lock on the up stroke and down stroke. The operation is incremental; at the end of the up stroke the lock will engage. Once engaged the lift cylinder is retracted and another block is safely added.
“The capability, safety and ease of use of the Enerpac SCJ50 Cube Jack places it firmly within the reach of many industrial movers who are looking to enhance their service offering,” says Jeremy Stubbs, commercial director, Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology. “It is also a very compact lifting system enabling safer lifts where space is limited.”
The Enerpac booth will feature the new SL200 Super Lift hydraulic gantry. The new Enerpac SL100 and SL200 gantries offer higher lifting capacities and accurate load positioning on a narrow 610mm track gauge. The ideal solution for machinery and industrial moving specialists, the SL100 and SL200 have lift capacities ranging from 100 to 200 ton respectively and feature two stage lift cylinders with a maximum lifting height up to 4.75m / 15ft (SL100) and 6.7m / 22ft (SL200).
