Industry equipment moving specialist, Jozef Hermans Industrial Movers in The Netherlands, has invested in an Enerpac SL300 telescopic hydraulic gantry. The SL300 is one of four Enerpac gantry lifting systems with capacities ranging from 100 to 400 tonnes.
“Over 80% of our moves are within a factory, so the space needed for the lifting system is critical,” says Jos Hermans, director of Jozef Hermans. “The SL300’s smaller footprint is a significant addition to our capability for internal moves. It increases our competitive edge, allowing us to handle equipment moves where previously we would have struggled to implement the lift in the space available.”
Enerpac gantry systems are an alternative to cranes for internal factory moves. They need relatively little space, and there is no need to undertake structural changes to the building for crane access.
“Importantly the SL300, and other Enerpac gantries, are electrically driven, which is essential when you are operating inside a factory, as there are no fumes generated by the lift system. Also, the wireless control allows us to view the lift from different positions, giving us complete control where space is tight,” said Hermans.
The Enerpac SL300 gantry uses 24-inch track gauge for loads up to 3,000 kN. The gantry is compact and readily transported in a single container. It provides industry-leading features, such as a wireless control system and totally enclosed hydraulic power pack and hoses to ensure safety.
