MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (July 13, 2021– The new Enerpac ML40 Mini Lift Gantry with 40ton capacity was designed to be portable, simple to set up, and easy to use. It is the ideal solution for machinery movers, plant relocation services, millwrights, and medical equipment installers who need to move machines and equipment in compact spaces. 

Machinery Relocation 

When moving machines or parts of machines either within the same building or to another building, space is always limited. The ML40 Mini Lift Gantry has a compact size ideal for moving equipment around old installations. Its short, collapsed height and narrow width means the ML40 Mini Lift Gantry can get into spaces that other equipment cannot. The gantry can also rotate the load (up-end or down-turn) to move through the building.  

 Machinery Installation or Replacement 

When performing a new equipment installation or the removal and installation of equipment for maintenance or repair, industrial movers are often faced with minimal headroom and many obstacles. The ML40 Mini Lift Gantry makes it easy to offload the equipment from the delivery vehicle and re-position it for use in the facility. Additionally, it makes it easy to assemble the equipment in sections and then move it as a complete unit into final position. When replacing old equipment, disassembly in sections may be easiest method of removal. The small size of the ML40 Mini Lift Gantry makes it easier to mobilize and set up.  

 Medical Equipment Installation 

Installing medical equipment typically involves difficult access within the hospital. Medical equipment is often delicate and needs smooth, even lifting. Standard synchronized lifting on the ML40 prevents damage to equipment. The compact size of the ML40 Mini Lift Gantry is also a critical feature. It is easy to transport and fits into most freight elevators. Single phase voltage 115 or 230 VAC operation eliminates need for long, high voltage power connections or noisy generators. 

When it comes to safety, the ML40 Mini Lift Gantry features standard synchronized lifting and control and load readout to ensure safe and level lifting. A wireless pendant keeps the operator away from equipment during operation. The ML40 is also versatile. Its high capacity and simple set up mean even jobs with challenging or uncertain information can be managed without issue. It is also easy to use. A simple set up means even relatively new rigging operators can operate the equipment.
