Precision positioning for heavy loads

Designed to enable a single crane to precisely position heavy and unbalanced loads, Spanish equipment manufacturer Enerpac has launched the SHAS-Series synchronous hoist system.

The SHAS-Series is a below-the-hook crane attachment comprised of multiple self-contained, PLC-controlled hydraulic lifting devices. Each of the lifting devices includes a double-acting hydraulic push pull cylinder with an integrated pump and controls. Integrating the pump eliminates the need for an external power pack and hydraulic hoses.

The lifting cylinders deliver high precision lifting over the full stroke. Each cylinder is available with either 110 or 225t lifting capacity and strokes of 1 and 1.5m.

The wireless remote control ensures a single operator is able to control the SyncHoist while remaining at a safe distance. The operator has full control over load handling; each cylinder can lift or lower independently. The system can perform several types of movements including synchronous lifting and lowering, balancing, and tilting, all of which can be pre-programmed.

The SHAS-Series SyncHoist is currently available in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Australia.
