MILWAUKEE, WI – Enerpac, a global market leader in heavy lifting technology and high-pressure hydraulics, recently announced a new line of industrial turntables that facilitate safe repositioning of heavy or oversize loads. The Enerpac ETT200 and ETT400 turntables greatly simplify handling, adjustment and precise orientation of loads up to 200- and 400-tons respectively, made possible by Enerpac’s powerful and robust hydraulic cylinder technology.
Designed to complement Enerpac’s SL Series hydraulic gantries and/or LH Series low height skidding systems, an ETT Series turntable serves a vital role in critical handling of heavy or oversized systems, devices and components such as industrial-scale transformers, generators, motors or engines permitting smooth, precision positioning before, during or after skidding or lifting operations.
“The new ETT Series industrial turntables facilitate the safe and efficient positioning of nearly any large or heavy load, even in the most restrictive spaces,” said Pete Crisci, product line director, Enerpac Heavy Lifting Technology. “This portable positioning system easily pays for itself in productivity gains and improved efficiency during device installation, removal or maintenance, while protecting workers from potential injury caused by attempted manual rotation during skidding operations or suspension.”
With a low-profile design of just 5.91-in (150mm) in height, the ETT Series Turntables provide exceptional load stability. The system is driven by either a single, double-acting 25-ton capacity hydraulic cylinder in the case of the ETT200, or by two cylinders in the ETT400 to achieve 400-ton handling capacity. Both models offer smooth, tightly controlled rotational power and can be operated with standard Enerpac hydraulic pumps. The 6 ft (1.825m) diameter platform provides controlled zero-turn capabilities in an efficient footprint. The Turntables feature a durable hardwood surface, 10,000 psi (700 bar) cylinders and 360-degree, bi-directional rotating capabilities made possible by a highly-accessible cylinder ratcheting system. The system is easily transportable by four integral lifting hooks, sets up quickly and weighs just 3,750 lbs (1,700 kg).
Crisci added, “The Enerpac turntable series makes for efficient maintenance, repair and operations, providing a direct transfer destination for heavy skidded or lifted loads, letting operators preform service directly on the platform itself or accurately positioning the load and setting the stage for removal from the site location.”
