How one per­son can safely do the job of two

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - EMEX -

A time and labour-sav­ing range of En­er­pac Sync Grip Pullers that en­able one per­son to safely han­dle many jobs pre­vi­ously re­quir­ing two will be high­lighted at EMEX 2018.

The SG puller range – in me­chan­i­cal and hy­draulic ca­pac­i­ties up to 45 tons – will be a high­light of the joint Jonel Hy­draulics- En­er­pac Stand 232, which will si­mul­ta­ne­ously fea­ture En­er­pac’s go-any­where XC cord­less pumps, of­fer­ing the per­for­mance ca­pa­bil­i­ties of an elec­tric or pneu­matic pow­ered pump with the con­ve­nient porta­bil­ity of a hand pump.

XC cord­less pumps are con­structed of light­weight ma­te­ri­als, equipped with a pow­er­ful, one-half horse­power mo­tor, and fea­ture 28volt, Lithium-Ion bat­tery tech­nol­ogy. Used with En­er­pac’s global range of lif ting, form­ing, crimp­ing, cut­ting, fab­ri­ca­tion and main­te­nance tools – in­clud­ing hy­draulic SG pullers – they pro­mote op­er­a­tor safety by re­mov­ing trip haz­ards as­so­ci­ated with tra­di­tional pow­ered pumps.

SG pullers – which fea­ture syn­chro­nised move­ment of their lock­ing jaws for si­mul­ta­ne­ous en­gage­ment and op­ti­mised safety – can be used as a stan­dalone tool or hy­draulic units can be com­bined with the cord­less pump to de­liver out­stand­ing safety and con­ve­nience, par­tic­u­larly in hard-to-ac­cess ar­eas.

“The XC/SG com­bi­na­tion is ideal for a wide va­ri­ety of com­mon main­te­nance tasks ei­ther off-site or in work­shops where op­er­a­tions staff ap­pre­ci­ate the power and pre­ci­sion of safety-first hy­draulics that are easy and con­ve­nient to ap­ply to some­times less ac­ces­si­ble and po­ten­tially haz­ardous jobs,” says En­er­pac New Zealand Coun­try Man­ager Neville Stu­art.

SG-Se­ries Sync Grip Pullers op­ti­mise safety, sim­plic­ity and speed of re­moval of bear­ings, bush­ings, gears, sleeves, wheels, fly­wheels, sprock­ets and other shaft-mounted items. They en­able one per­son to do jobs that of­ten pre­vi­ously took two, in ap­pli­ca­tions such as main­te­nance of fixed and mo­bile ma­chin­ery and plant as well as heavy ve­hi­cles and rolling stock in in­dus­tries such as the au­to­mo­tive, con­struc­tion, civil, me­chan­i­cal, pro­duc­tion and process en­gi­neer­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing and metal work­ing, min­ing and en­ergy, oil and gas, ma­te­ri­als han­dling, pri­mary pro­duc­tion, road, rail and tracked ve­hi­cle trans­port, wa­ter and waste­water in­dus­tries. A safety and work­place ben­e­fit of SG pullers is that they will grip even on sur­faces where nor­mal pullers would slip off – for ex­am­ple, on ta­pered bear­ings. “Their, smooth, sim­ple and safe op­er­a­tion means that, in­stead of im­pact haz­ards cre­ated by re­moval meth­ods us­ing ham­mers and levers – with risks to both the work­piece and main­te­nance per­son­nel – Sync Grip Pullers draw parts smoothly and pre­cisely with­out the need for heat­ing or pry­ing,” says Mr Stu­art, who will be on hand at EMEX to pro­vide guid­ance on En­er­pac tool use. He will also in­tro­duce spe­cials on pur­pose­built sets that will be of­fered for prod­ucts on dis­play.

Sync Grip Pullers are the lat­est evo­lu­tion of En­er­pac’s ad­vanced puller tech­nol­ogy, while XC pumps are part of En­er­pac’s ex­ten­sive hy­draulic pump ranges with reli­a­bil­ity and ser­vice back­ing through­out Aus­tralia, New Zealand and PNG.
