Jonel Hydraulics has made a significant purchase of professional bolting technology for the national hire market from Enerpac (A Division of Actuant Corp) .
Jonel Hydraulics is one of New Zealand’s leading hydraulic and high-force technology service and application specialists.
The equipment will be used by Jonel to service markets where they have built up extensive experience including oil and gas, mining, cranes, building and construction, energy and infrastructure as well as manufacturing.
The Enerpac technology is part of a global family of professional bolting tools engineered to safely streamline and automate many common, time-consuming as well as potentially hazardous manual maintenance and fabrication tasks including pipelines, heavy vehicles, building and machinery.
The breakthrough entry into the hire and rental market that demands tools built to withstand the wear and tear of hire to the toughest industrial markets was announced jointly by Enerpac and Jonel Hydraulics, which said the move was driven by demand from customers with whom they had developed strong relationships based on service, follow-up and professionalism.
Enerpac said Jonel’s extensive experience with selling and servicing Enerpac technology meant it was ideally positioned to develop the hire market as major growth occurred in projects demanding it.
“Jonel Hydraulics Ltd has invested in its people and capabilities to grow its reputation, resources and skills to be truly world class – our globally respected brand is in very capable hands,” says Pat Molloy, Professional Bolting Manager of Enerpac, which operates in more than 30 countries and is the world’s leading producer of compact but extremely powerful 700 bar hydraulic equipment.
Enerpac professional bolting technology includes:
- State-of-the-art torque wrenches, sockets, tensioners and nut splitter systems including the S and W series of high pressure (700 bar) hexagonal and square drive steel hydraulic torque wrenches
- High-performance, new generation air and electric pumps that are purpose-built for efficiency and safety including new generation torque wrench pumps from Enerpac
- High-pressure (700 bar) hydraulic lifting equipment, which packs more lifting power into a smaller space and makes cylinder placement simpler and safer
Technology available through Jonel includes PLC multi-point lifting technology, which has been proven in recent applications ranging from the lifting of entire buildings and bridges (including the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco) to splitting in Australia of mining draglines for maintenance and the hoisting of grinding mills weighing more than 1000 tons for installation on their cradles.
George Pavletich, Enerpac Product Manager at Jonel Hydraulics says the combination of Enerpac global technology and capabilities as well as Jonel’s extensive local expertise is ideal because reliability and technical support is paramount across a huge spectrum of industry where speed, efficiency and safety are crucial.
Director of Jonel Hydraulics, Suren Surendran adds, “Jonel Hydraulics has earned the respect of its growing customer base by combining good old-fashioned service and follow-up with leading edge technology and training.
“We do pride ourselves in being quick off the mark – we have a rule in the service centre that when someone comes in, they must be attended to within 30 seconds,” says Mr Surendran, who with fellow Director Mr Rob Sweet, has instilled a culture of customer service throughout the company.
