Enerpac has launched the Evo-P Pump-Per-Point Synchronous Lift System. It is designed to provide high accuracy with increased cylinder speed for multi-point lifting and positioning of large structures.

Designed especially for high tonnage cylinders, the EVO-P Synchronous Lift System has a lift accuracy up to 1mm together with a range of pump options from 5 – 20HP.

As a Pump-Per-Point system, the Evo-P features individual hydraulic pumps for each lifting point. This reduces the distance from pump to cylinder, minimising hose lengths and risk of leaks. The hydraulic pumps are two-stage, which Enerpac says is ideal for up to four times faster cylinder retraction and repetitive operations.

The combination of a higher flow rate per cylinder and high accuracy means lifts can be completed quicker without sacrificing quality, Enerpac adds. The Evo-P features an improved speed option for large cylinders with longer strokes and, due to its high oil capacity in each cylinder, it eliminates the need for custom reservoir designs.

A variable-frequency drive (VFD) motor controls lifting accuracy and minimises starts and stops. According to Enerpac, this results in faster as well as smoother lifts — making it suitable for sensitive structures. The VFD speed control allows flexibility when using multiple cylinder capacities on the same lift. The pumps can be used as standalone high flow hydraulic power units with simple handheld pendant operation.
