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.”
