Flexible, affordable light crane systems

Fourth Quarter 2019 Other technologies

Super light, highly flexible and affordable, Demag’s KBK light crane systems are easily adaptable to individual lifting requirements. With their modular system they can be combined to create individual suspension monorail, suspension crane, pillar and wall-mounted slewing jib crane solutions. They can also be modified at any time and be integrated easily into any production line.

One of the most popular in South Africa is the KBK Aluline light crane system. This extremely low weight aluminium overhead crane system enables the design of almost any overhead suspension crane or monorail system with outstandingly smooth operation. Single or double-girder suspension cranes allow fast and reliable overhead handling and exact positioning of a wide variety of goods. Larger loads can also be moved beyond the crane runway using overhang and extending cranes fitted with crane girders that extend beyond the width of the crane runway, up to 2500 mm beyond the runway span.

The KBK manipulator cranes meet the exact needs of a wide variety of loads, processes and production conditions. They reliably accommodate kick-up forces with great positioning accuracy at high operating speeds. Another option is the KBK suspension monorail, which is specifically designed for linear overhead handling for complex installations. HDemag’s KBK stacker cranes make it possible to complete all storage and handling tasks in one operating cycle without the need for ladders, order-picking trolleys or similar equipment. Unit loads, containers or pallets weighing up to 500 kg can be safely and reliably transported, sorted and stored.
