New hydraulic gantry system

19 December, 2022

Enerpac has launched the SBL600 gantry, the latest addition to the SBL-Super Boom Lift hydraulic gantry range.

With maximum lifting height of 10.6m, the three-stage telescopic hydraulic cylinder features a foldable boom allowing transportation on standard flatbed trucks without the need for special permitting and routing. The first opportunity to see the Enerpac SBL600 will be at Bauma 2022, stand FS1105/1.

The SBL600 hydraulic gantry has a rectangular boom for increased capacity and lifting height with a first stage capacity of 674 ton, 562 ton second stage and 416 ton at the third stage. Its design is optimised for ease of transportation, significantly reducing the cost of deployment and set-up for this class of gantry. With a foldable boom, the transport height of the SBL600 is just 2.25m and the self-weight per leg 9 ton, allowing a flatbed trailer to transport two gantry legs rather than one.

Compact, foldable SBL600 gantry 

Pete Crisci, product line director, Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology, says: “Ease of transportation is the key benefit of the SBL600 hydraulic gantry. Its significantly lower transport height, allowing the 4-leg gantry to be shipped to site using just two standard flatbed trucks, makes it more efficient to mobilize compared to larger and heavier gantries. In addition, the SBL600 lifting height of 10.6m allows users to perform heavy lifts to a greater height compared to other gantries in this category. The new SBL600 gantry, with foldable boom, ensures Enerpac continues to lead on the utility and capacity of hydraulic gantries in heavy lift rigging.”

The SBL600 uses steel wheels on industry standard 914 mm (3 foot) gauge skid track. Each gantry leg has a built-in hydraulic pump which eliminates trip hazards by removing the need to connect hoses and makes the equipment easier to set up.

Wireless operator control

As standard, the SBL600 includes Enerpac Intellilift wireless controls providing users with a safe and reliable way to operate the gantry. With no cables, there are no tripping hazards or risk of incorrect connections. Wireless controls save time during set up as there are no cables to connect. In addition, it allows unrestricted operator positioning, automatic synchronous lifting and lowering, along with travel and side shift control. Built in safety alarms are included to alert operator of unsafe conditions and stop gantry operations.

The Enerpac SBL600 gantry complies to ASME B30.1, CE, UKCA and other safety standards. Accessories for the SBL600 include header beams, skid track and side shift units to shift a load along header beams utilising the Intellilift wireless controls.
