Customer Driven Innovation
One of our core values is to continually innovate and solve customer problems. Through the efforts of a dedicated innovation team and several centers of excellence, new ideas to improve productivity and safety are discovered by listening to our customer’s pain points and observing how they perform tasks in their own environments. These inputs lead to the forming of ideas and eventually prototypes that can be tested, refined and transformed into finished products.
Ergonomics is the science of designing tools and equipment that reduce operator fatigue, discomfort and injury. Concepts generated through our discovery process take ergonomics into consideration as they progress through the innovation stages.
This functional design approach makes Enerpac tools more intuitive to use through common connection points, valve handles, on/off switches as well as ensuring hand comfort when holding and operating tools or controls. Integrated functional design improves the overall quality of products, reduces operator fatigue, and thus, increases job efficiency and safety.
The early versions of hydraulic jacks were used to lift cars and trucks for maintenance or collision repair. Yet, customers needed similar solutions with the same force to bend, straighten, press, punch, push or pull. This inspired the long history of hydraulic product innovation and the comprehensive portfolio of Enerpac hydraulic cylinders today.
Enerpac Synchronous Lift Systems provide precise positioning of the lifting and lowering of high tonnage loads. The control panel switch function developed in the early 1990’s removed human error and increased safety by automating the maximum allowable positioning error between leading and lagging lift points. This early development paved the way for the controls found in the EVO multi-point control system.
The first-to-market, high-pressure battery powered hydraulic pump was the WalkPac. The pump was a direct-drive, 6-piston pump powered by an internally developed Ni-Cad battery system that ran very smoothly and had very low-pressure ripple. This gave the pump a very high-quality sound, feel, tool performance and low sound level. Now, the industry flagship battery-powered pumps are the Enerpac XC Series models.
Enerpac Intelli-Lift was the first wireless radio controls of its kind to interface with hydraulic gantries. The approach changed the way operators interacted with the flagship Enerpac SBL1100 gantry to greatly improve the safety of their heavy lifts. Today, the bi-directional communication of the Intelli-Lift wireless control system, included with all Enerpac Hydraulic gantries, provides operators remote and automated synchronized lifting and side-shift control.
Born out of the proven Enerpac Jack-up system, the Enerpac Cube Jack is the first lifting system that eliminates the need for wooden cribbing. With a small footprint and the safety features of the self-locking system, this innovative solution is a heavy load lifting system significantly safer and faster than the jack-and-pack methods of days past.
