Page 68 of 75 March 2016 • 67 INNOVATIONS MATERIAL HANDLING A below-the-hook lifting solution, the SHS-Series SyncHoist enables operators to use a single crane to easily position loads vertically and horizontally, all while ensuring safety, speed and control. Designed with four BTH-1 compliant hydraulic lifting cylinders, the system is connected directly to suspended rig- ging. Cylinders are available in 60-, 94- or 120-ton capacity with strokes ranging from 19.69 to 59.06 in. The SyncHoist is available with both manual and automatic control options. The former allow operators to actuate cylin- ders using pump-mounted manual valves, the pump equipped to display each cylinder's load readings. The automatic, com- puter-controlled option provides both position and load feed- back, and is capable of automatically positioning the cylin- ders with accuracy of +/-0.40 in. over full stroke. In addition, the system has warning alarms should cylinders exceed the user-established stroke and load parameters. "Using tandem or multiple crane lifts for positioning of heavy and unbalanced loads can be difficult to synchronize," says Enerpac Global Development Leader Pete Crisci. "The Syn- cHoist System provides accurate positioning without the need for multiple cranes, enhancing a crane's capability and signifi- cantly improving the overall safety and efficiency of the opera- tion." — ENERPAC CONFIGURES CYLINDERS FOR ACCURATE HOISTING, LOAD POSITIONING
