Enerpac 100 ton Lock Grip Puller for removing large shaft mounted partsĀ 

Enerpac announces its largest lock-grip puller system so far, the LGH3100 synchronous lock grip system delivers up to 100 tons of hydraulic force for pulling medium to large size wheels, sprockets, bearings and other similar shaft-mounted parts. The puller’s self-centring closing "Lock-Grip" system moves all jaws simultaneously, allowing a single operator to safely handle removal of large wheels, bearings, and couplers with ease.        

Removing large, shaft mounted, components that may have become seized and corroded can be challenge for maintenance operators. Dangerous practices such as torching, cutting and hammering are liable to damage expensive parts leading to maintenance delays and extended equipment downtimes. The 3-jaw LGH3100 Lock-Grip Puller gives operators the ability to detach heavy and stubborn, large shaft mounted components efficiently and without damage.

The 100 ton lock grip puller is mounted on an ergonomically designed rolling cart with a low centre of gravity that minimises the physical effort needed to position and operate the puller. The cart features large industrial castor wheels and pockets for use with a forklift. The hydraulic pulling power is provided by the onboard Enerpac ZE3-Series electric two stage pump and remote operating control pendant.

Removed components are captured and held securely within the synchronous locking jaws. With a maximum reach of 1219 mm, the smooth action, hydraulic scissor lift on the LGH3100 cart provides effortless centre height adjustment from 698 mm to 1679 mm. When both space and budgets are tight, the 3-jaw LG3100 is easily converted into a 2-jaw, 70 ton capacity configuration, avoiding the need to use valuable budget on a separate 2 jaw puller.

“The LGH3100 Lock-Grip Puller is the safe and productive way to remove large shaft mounted components without damage,” says Diego Rossi, Commercial Director Rail Markets EMEA, Enerpac. “The combination of a smooth action scissor lift, synchronised grip jaws and an intuitive operator station creates a stable and efficient pulling tool, allowing a single operator to remove, for example, large wheels, bearings, and couplers with unmatched ease.”
