Enerpac has launched the SHAS-Series Autonomous SyncHoist for high-precision load manoeuvring with a single crane, it is designed for the safe and accurate positioning of heavy and unbalanced loads. Deployed below-the-hook, SyncHoist can be used either directly between slings or under an auxiliary frame, enabling accurate hoisting where space is limited.
SyncHoist enhances a crane’s capability in terms of both its ability to accurately handle heavy and unbalanced loads, and its utility on-site. There is no need for an external power pack or for hydraulic hoses for the lifting cylinders, therefore, it does not require mid-hoist replacement of the power pack or generator.
A single operator controls and oversees the entire hoisting job, using a portable wireless control unit for remote control of all cylinders. In addition to synchronised lifting and lowering, the operator is able to independently lift and lower each cylinder for balancing, tilting and positioning loads.
