Demag cranes provide lifting power for the oil and gas sector

Demag cranes provide lifting power for the oil and gas sector

Published on Thursday, 17 July 2014 08:44

Terex Material Handling has installed two Demag overhead travelling cranes at Dril-Quip Europe’s production facility in Aberdeen. A division of the multinational operator, Dril-Quip Inc of Houston, Texas, the company designs, manufactures and services a wide variety of hardware for the oil and gas industry. Dril-Quip’s product range includes sub-sea and surface trees and tubular components, which are distributed to major oil and gas operators worldwide. Dril-Quip specified the Demag cranes as part of an expansion programme at its 400,000 sq ft production facility. The investment was driven by the need to handle increasingly large and heavy components, between manufacturing and assembly processes. Terex Material Handling supplied a Demag 50 t SWL, 17.6 m span ZKKW double girder overhead travelling crane and a 30 t SWL, 17.6 m span ZKKW double girder overhead travelling crane. Both cranes incorporate Demag MPW open winch wire rope lifting units, which are particularly suited to Dril-Quip’s manufacturing processes. Both cranes have variable cross and long travel speeds of 0 - 20 m/min. The 50 t SWL crane has variable hoisting speeds of 0 – 8.8 m/min for loads up 30 t and 0 – 5.5 m/min for loads above 30 t, whilst the 30 t SWL crane has variable hoisting speeds of 0 – 8.8 m/min for loads up 18 t and 0 – 5.5 m/min for loads above 18 t. Safety features include fast to slow and slow to stop functions at cross travel and long travel limits, with an optical crane to crane anti-collision feature. The crane systems feature AC inverter controls for smooth movement, precision positioning accuracy and minimisation of load sway. The cranes are operated via a Demag DRC-J joystick radio remote control, allowing the operator to be excluded from the lifting area for safety, ergonomic efficiency and comfort. Dril-Quip Europe’s Lifting Equipment Supervisor, Arty Matheson, reported that the company now has several Demag cranes at its Aberdeen production facility: “We have been impressed by the productivity and reliability of our existing Demag cranes. This latest investment was prompted by the necessity to handle increasingly large and heavy loads. Terex Material Handling was able to help us meet these objectives with an engineered solution, tailored to our specific requirements, incorporating the Demag MPW open winch wire rope lifting units.” He added: “Demag’s regional after sales network was also an important factor in the specification process. Demag service has a strong presence in the north east of Scotland, providing us with total peace of mind in terms of technical support.”

New Demag KBK Aluline Light Crane System

New Demag KBK Aluline Light Crane System

New Demag KBK Aluline light crane system

■      
Improved smooth running characteristics

■       Ergonomic handling of loads up to 2,000 kg   
■       Designed for versatile crane and handling systems  

Terex Material Handling has completely redesigned the Demag KBK Aluline light crane system to create a versatile and ergonomic modular lifting and moving solution. Reduced rolling resistance enables operators to move loads weighing up to 2,000 kg, by hand, with minimum physical effort.

Six profile sections in four sizes

The new light crane system comprises hollow section aluminium profiles, in four sizes, which deliver improved rigidity and a higher load capacity. In addition, all profile sections benefit from lateral slots, which are compatible with the ITEM system, making it an ideal platform for the addition of other industry standard accessories for bespoke solutions.

The two larger KBK Aluline profile sections are available with optional integrated conductor lines, eliminating trailing cables, for improved functionality and a clean, modern appearance.
The spectrum of applications for the light crane system ranges from small workshops to complex interlinked material flow applications, including semi-automated production operations. The system is particularly suited to the automotive industry, where high cycle times and precise positioning on production lines are prerequisites. The smooth operation of the KBK Aluline system, with low load dead weight, reduces operator fatigue whilst meeting demands for operational efficiency and safety.


New rail connections for greater versatility


As an overhead handling system, KBK Aluline makes it possible to create almost any size of uspension crane or monorail system
. Even greater versatility is afforded by a significant reduction in the number of suspension points required and a consequent increase in the distance between the profile section connectors and suspension points. The new sections are stronger and lighter, requiring less supporting structure, for reduced installation time and cost. The KBK Aluline system has been designed to be virtually maintenance free.


All aluminium profile sections are compatible with existing Demag KBK steel and Aluline profile sections, allowing them to be combined for the upgrade and extension of existing material handling installations. By installing or upgrading to t
he smooth running characteristics of KBK Aluline, noise levels are also reduced for an improved working environment.


Terex Material Handling offers a free consultancy and advice service to customers, through its own experienced local support engineers, and via a nationwide dealer and OEM programme.

Marc Rieser, Head of Modular Cranes Business Line, stated:

“By optimising the interplay between individual components, we have not only reduced the start-up resistance, but also achieved excellent travel resistance values. This improvement is really tangible for the user, who requires significantly less force to move loads.”
