Enerpac has announced a new 100t capacity hydraulic Sync Grip Puller for the safe and controlled removal of bearings, bushing, gears and pins from shafts during vehicle and machinery maintenance.
A statement from Enerpac said that as with all pullers in the Sync Grip line, the new 100t SGH100 model features simple, synchronous movement. “The sync grip mechanism synchronises movement of all jaws for simultaneous engagement, enhancing the operator’s control over the tool and simplifying set-up.
“Hydraulic puller jaws fit around the part to be removed, while the spindle applies up to 100t of force to remove it. Hydraulically applied pulling force increases pulling capacity and reduces operator fatigue, enabling quicker and easier operation.”
Enerpac added that the new SGH100 is the largest in its Sync Grip Puller series and eliminates the need to cut, heat, or torch components during removal from shafts. The puller removes parts without subjecting them to open flames, which could damage parts or injure the operator. “When it comes to cost-effectiveness, the puller provides 100t of pulling force at a fraction of the price compared to alternative options,” said the manufacturer.
Enerpac added that its SGH100 puller’s synchronous feature makes positioning the puller simple and helps prevent misalignment. Threaded spindle and jaw indexes provide adjustable reach for applications including pulling, pushing and dismounting gears, bearings, bushings and more.
