Enerpac, a leader in high pressure hydraulic tools, recently introduced the Pow’R-LOCK™ jack which automatically locks during lifting, lowering and holding. This lift system provides safety in operation without the need to manually lock or release. From their article: “A patent-pending control system provides full-time automatic locking, securing the load regardless of cylinder movement and control cycle.”
This portable system has been rated for heavy lifts up to 200 tons with a maximum of 10,000 psi. Its design is driven towards secure lifting for heavy off-highway machinery including trucks, tractors, civil engineering machinery and implements. The key feature of the system is the ability to automatically lock, allowing the operator to simply control movement with a remote pendant. This is achieved by the support of a locknut, which remains in place in case of a hydraulic failure and prevents the machine from losing control of its contents.
Enerpac is a global market leader in high pressure hydraulic tools, controlled force products and solutions for precise positioning of heavy loads. Enerpac manufactures products, from the smallest hydraulic cylinder to complete computer-operated lifting and positioning systems, to provide their customers with innovative solutions that increase productivity, are cost effective, and make work safer and easier to perform.
