Enerpac has launched the latest innovation in the SL series of telescopic hydraulic gantries, the SL300.
The SL300 telescopic hydraulic gantry is an efficient solution for heavy lifting and rigging applications, offering the highest lifting capacity on a 6.1 m track gauge, says Enerpac.
Equipped with two stage lifting cylinders, the SL300 lifts up to 22 ft (6.7 m) at the top of the second stage, and has a maximum lift capacity (four legs) of 305.7 tonnes. At stage one, the lift capacity is 76 tonnes at 4.6 m, and at stage two the lift capacity is 50.8 tonnes at 6.7 m maximum height. To ensure quality performance, each gantry is tested to 125 percent of capacity at full extension and witness-tested by a qualified, third-party organisation.
The SL300, which is sized to fit Enerpac's 6.1 m track gauge, features a wireless control system and an integrated self-propelled drive system. Like all Enerpac gantries, the SL300 has self-contained hydraulics, electronic controls and Intellilift wireless control system.
According to Enerpac, the control systems allow users to operate the lift locally at each leg or use the Intellilift remote control for unobstructed views of the load while the wireless system ensures automatic synchronisation of lifting with accuracy of 0.025m and automatic synchronisation of travel with accuracy of 0.015 m.
