Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers - Powerful Pullers with a Practical Design

Enerpac introduces a controlled solution to removing objects from shafts for maintenance that is safer, faster and easier to operate. The new series Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers provide maintenance crews a safer, faster and synchronised way to remove gears and bearings from a shaft. Objects are firmly controlled during the extraction process with the unique locking mechanism design, nearly eliminating the risk of flailing. Compared to other puller designs, the synchronised movement of the Lock-Grip Pullers jaws cut setup time in half.

New Lock-Grip Design

The jaws on the Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers are designed with a deeper reach than previous models. At wider spreads, the reach is significantly improved. The removal of the cage area streamlines the tool with an improved reach-to-diameter ratio for equivalent tonnage, making it lighter and easier to manage. 

Reduced Manpower

Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers have jaws that move in unison, which means fewer people are needed to engage them during set up of the puller. Manpower can also be reduced thanks to sync and self-centring features. Synchronous jaw movement enables the entire pulling job to be performed by a single operator, which means it frees up the operator’s schedule so more time can be spent on other important jobs. 

Improved Control 

A locking mechanism helps prevent the jaws on Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers from slipping off the application during the pulling process. The synchronous feature of the Lock-Grip Pullers allows all jaws to move simultaneously and self-centre, preventing misalignment. And an adjustment handle that simplifies the positioning of jaws helps increase operation speed.

Applications Across Industries

The new series of powerful, high-force pullers works for a variety of applications. Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers are an ideal solution for the removal of bearings, bushing, gears, and pins in industries such as paper plants, power generation, aerospace, rail, shipbuilding, oil and gas, manufacturing and mining. Available in two and three jaw configurations, the pullers quickly and easily mount on a wide range of applications so time can be spent on pulling and more time can be spent completing other jobs. 

The new series of Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers includes:

- LGM Mechanical Lock-Grip Pullers – simple, economical pullers for everyday pulling jobs

- LGH Hydraulic Lock-Grip Pullers – powerful, high-force pullers for more demanding applications

- LGHS and LGHMS Hydraulic Puller Sets.

Enerpac Lock-Grip Pullers are available now through Enerpac distributors.

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics is without doubt one of the most important and popular engineering shows in the UK calendar. From modest beginnings as a regional event, it has evolved into a fully-fledged national show, with increasing influence across continental Europe and further afield. In 2018, the event entered its third decade with a move into its new permanent home, the £35m Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre development, a 20,000m² complex offering world-class facilities, easy access and free onsite parking.

With its trademark diversity of suppliers, Southern Manufacturing and Electronics is an event that rises above any particular sector of the engineering industry. It is certainly an event important enough to attract big name manufacturers, but it’s also an extremely accessible show for the rich eco-system of engineering SMEs operating across the UK, and increasingly, continental Europe too. As well as giving the show its unique character, it also makes it one of the most effective shows for addressing multiple sourcing issues in a very time-efficient way.
