A HYDRAULIC lifting gantry with a lifting capacity of 5,000 kilonewtons has been developed by Enerpac, designed to safely lift loads to 12.8 metres.

Enerpac Integrated Solutions Manager for Australasia Richard Verhoeff says the new MBL5000 design incorporates the Intellilift wireless control system with automatic synchronisation and overload detection, as well as a foldable boom design, which facilitates transport inside a 20 foot container and enables access to confined areas.

The gantries are also able to absorb all side loads in the steel boom structure and not in the hydraulic cylinders.

The gantry operates at 8,000mm per hour, with low load/high-speed functionality for quick commissioning. It will also fit into a 20 foot container, making it simple to transport.
