Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology has expanded the hydraulic gantry lifting options for industrial movers. In addition to fixed lifting lugs, it now offers modular electric powered, header beam side shift units for its entire telescopic gantry range from the SL100 through SBL1100. The modular side shift units allow gantry users to customise the ‘below the hook’ distance to suit header beam dimensions and project requirements. According to Enerpac it also requires less space above the header beam compared to hydraulic powered side shift units.
Controls for the electric side shift are integrated within the gantry base units and wireless control system. The side shifts are available with extension bars and sling guides providing more lifting options.
The Enerpac powered side shift can also be used on other manufacturer’s gantry systems and fixed beam lifting and hoist systems by using a stand-alone electrical panel with pendant control.
