Enerpac’s self-contained Pow’R-LOCK hydraulic jacking system rated for heavy lifts up to 200 tons (181 metric tonnes) has won national accolades in the transport category of the Process and Control Engineering (PACE) Zenith Awards for 2016.

The prestigious awards – hosted by Prime Creative Media at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in August – recognised engineering companies that provide advanced technologies and products designed for safety, efficiency, productivity and performance.

The Pow’R-LOCK portable lifting system with full-time locking capability is designed and purpose-built to provide safe and secure lifting for heavy off-highway machinery including haul trucks, mining vehicles, civil engineering machinery and implements.

“It was rewarding to be recognised for this innovative solution that lifts massive vehicles in the mining and civil engineering industries,” said Mr Denis Matulin, Enerpac Regional Manager, Australia and New Zealand, who attended the awards night with Mining and Integrated Solutions Manager, Warren Baltineshter and Victorian Territory Manager, Murray Johnston.

“Enerpac’s goal is ‘zero harm’ and products like the Pow’R-LOCK that reduces risk by providing autonomous locking of the load help us achieve and maintain this goal,” said Mr Matulin.

Pow’R-LOCK’s innovative locking system does not rely on the operator to secure the load and that the 6m pendant keeps the operator out of the shadow of the truck and in a much safer position.
