    Demag KBK Extending Cranes for Optimum Use of Workspace

    Date: 19 June 2019 23:00

    • Optimum height utilisation
    • For lifting and positioning tasks beyond the crane runway
    Demag Cranes & Components has added overhung and extending configurations to its KBK Aluline light crane system. Such solutions are designed for applications where there is a requirement to move loads beyond the crane runway span dimension. They enable operators to perform lifting and positioning tasks between pillars and columns or deposit loads in aisles and free areas between assembly zones and lines. Depending on the load capacity, design and profile section size, the range can be extended by up to 3,100 mm. Crane extensions to either side of the track runway span dimension may also be specified, creating an even greater range of crane coverage.
    Compared with Demag’s conventional KBK crane kit, this configuration has a lower headroom dimension, allowing users to benefit from 120 to 220 mm more hook path, dependent on profile size, for improved utilisation of space below the crane girders. Extending and overhung components may be added easily and quickly to existing KBK installations to improve productivity, without the need to install additional crane runways.
    The KBK Aluline system is suitable for a wide range of operational requirements in production, assembly and shipping applications. The system is based on aluminium sections and smooth running trolleys. The result is a system that provides the operator with hands-on support for the movement and positioning of loads, improved ergonomics and reduced physical effort for material handling. It also facilitates an increased lifting path for enhanced operation of gantry mounted hoist units.
    The extension length, maximum load capacity up to 500 kg and the crane girder length can be easily selected when designing KBK crane installations. Systems may be designed by Demag’s dedicated engineering team or user specified via the company’s on-line KBK Designer tool.

    Sales Director, Paul Bartlett, stated:
    “The KBK lightweight crane system was first introduced over 56 years ago and the fact that it is still used today in a wide variety of workshop and assembly environments is testament to its inherent versatility and efficiency. We have continued to develop the system and this latest innovation will allow us to provide increasingly bespoke material handling solutions for an even broader range of industrial applications.”

    Handling with ease: Demag Manulift for loads of up to 500 kg

    Date: 15 November 2017 00:00

    Demag Cranes & Components has added a new model to its DCM-Pro Manulift range to accommodate increased load capacities. The new DC 5 Manulift allows users of Demag chain hoists to handle loads weighing up to 500 kg simply and safely.   The DC Manulift, used in conjunction with a Demag DC chain hoist, may be used for simple and safe horizontal and vertical movement of loads with minimum operator effort. Loads may be manoeuvred with the operator using just one hand, leaving the other hand free to operate the crane control system. This provides ergonomic advantages over the use of conventional chain hoists, where the operator often needs to use both hands to lift and position loads.   The DC Manulift’s control unit is rigidly connected to the load handling attachment, allowing the operator to guide the load with a central handle and, at the same time, lift and lower the load via integrated rocker switches, without having to change the hand position. This arrangement enables loads to be handled quickly, precisely and safely with fluid motions.   The DC Manulift has been enhanced by the introduction of material handling innovations, such as the latest D-Grip manual force control unit. It does not need switches or buttons for travel commands, with the load simply following the operator’s hand movements via the control system handle.
    The DCM-Pro Manulift is well established as an efficient handling device in many production and assembly lines and is employed in numerous sectors of industry worldwide. An extension to the load capacity range is a logical step in its further development, allowing it to be specified for a broader range of heavier duty applications. The DCM-Pro 5 incorporates all of the safety and operational features associated with the established Manulift range. These include a slipping clutch, with a speed-monitoring function, which protects against overloads, as well as the clutch located in front of the brake, preventing loads from dropping abruptly.

    Wireless Crane Operation with Demag Infrared Control

    Date: 20 July 2016 00:00

    Terex Material Handling’s new generation of Demag DIR infrared (IR) remote controls provides crane operators with a viable alternative to conventional radio controls. The Demag DIR range incorporates a variety of innovative features for the reliable and efficient control of material handling systems. One of the principal advantages of the Demag DIR system over radio controllers is the considerably shorter range, of some 40 metres between the transmitter and sensor(s), which is of benefit when the operator wants to limit the distance at which the crane can be controlled, for safety reasons. This specifically limited range ensures that operators are always in close proximity to the equipment, providing a clear view of the lifting and moving process. There is no risk that the IR control system will be influenced or impaired by radio systems and the IR offers no potential for interference with other radio controls. The Demag DIR’s rugged hand held transmitter housing is based on the design used for Demag radio controls, meaning that users will be familiar with the controller layout and can use the same keypad concept for both transmission methods. DIR hand held transmitters are offered in two sizes for two stage control, with six buttons (DIR 6) and ten buttons (DIR 10) for the control of two or three motion axes, respectively. Like Demag radio control systems, up to ten crane systems may be controlled simultaneously in an enclosed area. For multiple controller operation, switchover between transmitters is monitored to ensure that the control systems are clearly assigned to specific cranes. The high contrast bi-colour display provides a clear overview of the device and warning information, which affords the highest level of safety. The integrated vibration alarm and stop function conform to Category 3, Performance Level ‘d’ to the relevant standard EN 13849-1. Convenient and simple crane control is assured at short distances, of up to 15 metres, as the rays from the high performance infrared LEDs are reflected by the surrounding structure, eliminating the need for the transmitter to be pointed directly at the sensor. High performance rechargeable batteries ensure operating times of up to 30 hours with one charge. The unit can be conveniently charged on an optional inductive charging station. In addition to providing reliable wireless control of industrial cranes, the Demag DIR may also be used to control suspension monorails, transfer carriages and other materials handling equipment.

    Demag Crane System for Packaging Board Manufacturer

    Date: 20 July 2016 00:00

    Terex Material handling has installed a Demag double girder overhead travelling process crane at Iggesund Paperboard (Workington) Ltd’s production facility in Cumbria. Part of the Swedish Holmen Group, Iggesund manufactures, high quality folding box board products, which are used for the premium packaging and graphics markets.   The crane installation was part of an investment in new and upgraded board production facilities, to increase output by 20,000 tonnes per year. The crane was required due to the increased size and weight of the rolls in the new equipment.   The Iggesund production line operates 24 hours a day for 365 days per year, with a reel of board coming off the production line every 30 minutes, meaning that maximum availability and reliability of the material handling system is fundamental to the efficiency of the plant. To meet the specific requirements of Iggesund’s production processes, Demag engineers designed a complex reel handing crane, with a range of application focused features.   The solution was a 60 t SWL, 20.4 m span crane equipped with multiple hoists. These consisted of two outer 35 t SWL open winch crabs and a central 60 t open winch crab. A 52 t SWL power slew lifting beam was also part of the installation and is suspended from either the central hoist or the two outer hoists. The slewing beam is required to lift reels of paperboard and can be lifted by either the 2 x 35t hoists or the 60t hoist. This gives operational flexibility and back-up lifting capacity in the event of a hoist failure. In addition, each crab is also fitted with an auxiliary Demag wire rope hoist, rated at 5 t SWL, for faster maintenance functions.   The Demag crane is capable of travelling along the full 257 m of the paperboard production line, facilitating a wide range of operational and maintenance functions, but its primary role is the unloading of full reels from the board manufacturing line.   To accommodate the requirement for smooth movement of loads and precision positioning accuracy, the crane features frequency inverters. It has cross travel speeds of 5 to 15 m/min, long travel speeds of 5 to 40 m/min and hoisting speeds of 0.5 to 5.5 m/min, for loads greater than 30 t, or 0.5 to 8.4 m/min for loads of less than 25 t, providing fast and efficient load handling. The crane system is operated by radio remote control or mobile pendant.   Iggesund’s manufacturing programme dictated that Demag technicians needed to complete the installation of the crane without interruption to the production process. This necessitated detailed planning and project coordination, including the removal of sections of the machine hall roof and wall, to allow the crane girders to be lifted into place.   Iggesund’s Projects Engineer, Michael Brew, stated: “Demag’s engineers appreciated the specific requirements of our production processes and came up with a multi-functional material handling system, designed to provide maximum operational availability. In the face of stiff competition, they have delivered the best engineered solution for our processes, with a range of innovative features, which have helped us increase efficiency and productivity.“

    New range of modular Demag rope hoists

    Date: 16 November 2015 00:00

    Terex Material Handling has launched a new range of rope hoists based on a single design technology. The DMR range is of a modular design and is available with a broad range of complementary components, allowing multiple configurations to meet a wide variety of customer specific applications. This inherent flexibility allows DMR rope hoists to be manufactured to compact C-design or co-axial design.   The DMR range includes five models with SWLs from 1 to 50 tonnes. They are suitable for conventional cranes and crabs, as well as for stationary applications in the mechanical and plant engineering sectors where lifting, towing, travelling, holding or positioning tasks are required.   DMR modular rope hoists are available as foot mounted hoists, low and standard headroom travelling hoists and double rail crabs to meet specific customer needs. A choice of electrical equipment is available, including the smart Demag SafeControl system, conventional contactor controls or customers’ own control systems. The smart SafeControl system provides a high level of operating safety and reliability, fulfilling requirements for efficient production processes. SafeControl enables many technical features, from by-pass control to tandem operation and load dependent speeds, to be implemented with ease.   The hoist and cross travel drives have two stage or variable speeds, as required. DMR offers a flexible choice of accessories, including cross travel limit switches and current collectors, which may be easily and precisely fitted to the housing in various positions. They may also be adapted when a hoist unit or crab is installed.   The low headroom travelling hoist may be easily converted by the addition of a two wheel “DualDrive” to increase traction for outdoor applications, for example. With this arrangement, the cross travel motor simultaneously drives two wheels via a belt. A predefined mounting position also facilitates the simple installation of a second travel drive “DualDrive Plus”.   The DMR rope hoists satisfy the usual FEM 2m market standard as a minimum requirement and are rated for IP55 protection. The hoist units may be operated via the new D3 generation radio control system or with wire connected controls. Individual parameters, from basic design to the choice of control system, may be selected with a menu driven, online configuration tool. The result is a DMR modular rope hoist that is tailored to meet specific application requirements.   Dr. Thomas Bönker, Senior Director of the Components’ Business Line at Terex Material Handling, explained:   “The Demag DMR modular rope hoist makes it easier to select the most suitable hoist unit. Until now, hoist selection depended on the comparison of various options to find the right product for the given requirements. The DMR range offers solutions for all requirements with one basic technology. This means that operators have maximum freedom in the choice of design, control system, drive method and control concept.”

    New Demag V-type double girder crane

    Date: 16 November 2015 00:00

    Following the launch of the innovative Demag V-type single girder crane, Terex Material Handling has extended the range to include V-type double girder overhead travelling models. V-type double girder cranes are available with load capacities of up to 50 tonnes and are offered with spans of up to 35 m as standard, with longer girder lengths available upon request.   Lower weight A significant feature of the V-type crane is the reduced weight of the crane girder compared with cranes manufactured in box section girders. This facilitates the accommodation of a rope hoist that has a higher load capacity for the movement of heavier unit loads. The reduced crane deadweight produces less wheel pressure, minimising the forces transmitted to the crane runways and existing building structures. Consequently, the new Demag V-type crane provides architects with greater freedom in planning new factory buildings.   Precise positioning of sensitive goods Another advantage over conventional box section girder design is that the V-type’s mechanically connected girders are inherently more rigid, enabling faster material handling and the ability to transport and position sensitive loads gently and accurately.   Easily adapted to existing building structures The V-type double-girder crane is offered in four different designs, with the side connection of the end carriages to the girder a common feature to all models. The different types are distinguished by the shape of the girder ends and their vertical connection position, ensuring that the crane design may be best adapted to the existing building. For new structures, the space between the crane and building roof may be reduced for construction cost savings and lower maintenance expenses. In existing buildings with sufficient headroom, the height of the V-type girder may be increased to further reduce crane deadweight. This feature provides benefits for applications where the load bearing capacity of the building is an issue.   Precise crab runways and torsion-free crane girders The Demag V-type double girder crane offers improved precision for its crab runway. By placing the crab rail in the middle of the V-type crane girder, the distribution of forces is balanced and the crane girder remains free of any torsion. The V-type design, with vertical struts, means that the load dependent forces exerted by the rope hoist crab are transferred vertically to the girders, resulting in minimised wear on the crab rail and crab trolley system. This ensures that the track gauge of the crab runway is maintained precisely.   More light for improved workplace safety The V-type double girder design allows much more light to pass through it than traditional solid crane girders. This improves line of sight within the building and creates a brighter and more pleasing workplace for a safer working environment.   Andreas Hambrock, Senior Director of the Universal and Modular Cranes’ Business Line at Terex Material Handling, stated: “Following the positive response from the market for our V-type single girder crane, we have taken the next logical step with the introduction of the double girder design.”

    New Demag crane radio control system with mini joysticks

    Date: 16 November 2015 00:00

    Terex Material Handling has added new models to its range of D3 generation new radio controls. The compact DRC-MJ hand held transmitter facilitates ergonomic joystick control of crane systems using just one hand. Previously, operators had a choice of two systems for the radio control of cranes; either a compact unit with pushbuttons or a large control unit with joysticks. The Demag DRC-MJ controller combines the convenience of joystick control of all motions with the ergonomics of a compact hand held unit. The housing of the new control unit is based on the proven design of the Demag DRC DC hand held transmitter. The impact resistant housing material has a smooth surface and is resilient to mechanical loads. Rubber coated end caps ensure durability, making it suitable for operation in arduous environments. The batteries may be used for uninterrupted operation for up to five days without recharging.   Control of crane and travel functions by mini joystick The innovative design replaces the conventional keypad panel of a compact controller with two integrated mini joysticks and four buttons. The lifting and lowering motions of a rope hoist may be controlled accurately using the top joystick. The lower joystick may be used for the variable control of two motion axes, such as two crane and travel functions. Simultaneous motions, including diagonal long and cross travel motions, may be conveniently controlled with just one hand, speeding up the material handling process. The lifting and travel motions may be limited, at the press of a button, to 30, 50 or 70% of the maximum speed for each motion axis. When the speed limit function is activated, the maximum deflection of the mini joysticks is used for the reduced maximum speed. This results in a  ‘zoom’ function, which enables very fine control of slow speeds for optimum positioning accuracy. A distinct and illuminated bi-colour display shows the weight of the load. A vibration alarm indicates an overload and other status messages, relevant for safety and service purposes, may also be provided. Four user friendly buttons complete the control concept of the DRC-MJ units.   Up to three radio control units per crane For all Demag D3 radio control systems, the operator can pair each crane with up to three transmitters of various types; conventional pushbutton transmitters, classic joystick transmitters or mini joystick transmitters, with the ability to switch from one to another at the press of a button. This enables control of the crane to be transferred from one worker to another for greater efficiency of material flow. The new D3 generation of radio controls is equipped with state-of-the-art radio transmission functions, including frequency hopping and “listen before talk”. These features ensure radio transmission which is highly resistant to interference and compatible with other radio applications, even under arduous conditions. Up to 40 DRC radio systems can be operated in close proximity to each other. Dr. Thomas Bönker, Senior Director of the Components’ Business Line at Terex Material Handling states: “With our new DRC-MJ hand-held transmitter, we meet the demands of younger workers, who have grown up with modern control systems, such as joysticks and thumbwheels. The control concept will also be welcomed by older workers, as it facilitates ergonomic control of simultaneous travel motions with just one hand.”

    Demag V-type – a new generation of industrial cranes

    Date: 20 October 2014 00:00

    Terex Material Handling has launched the new generation Demag V-type crane, which sets new standards in the industry. The V-type design uses less material, helping to reduce the depletion of raw materials. V-type girders weigh, on average, 17% less than comparable box-section profile girders. This reduced crane deadweight produces less wheel pressure, minimising the forces transmitted to the existing building structure and increasing the maximum load capacity. Consequently, the new Demag V-type crane provides architects with greater freedom in planning new factory buildings. The design is also suitable for companies, who wish to employ additional lifting equipment in existing assembly and production bays. The patent pending design, which features diaphragm joints, also cuts oscillation of the crane girder by up to 30%. The reduced oscillation characteristics cause lower loads to be transmitted to the crane, its components and the building structure, doubling the service life of the crane to more than 500,000 load changes. In addition, the improved oscillation characteristics enable heavy and sensitive loads, such as glass panels, fluids or aluminium shell sections for aircraft, to be positioned more precisely and quickly. “The new V-type girder is the result of our continuous development in the crane engineering sector”, explains Andreas Hambrock, Head of the Universal Cranes’ Business Line at Terex Material Handling. “The new crane is an ideal supplement to our existing range of rolled and box-section girders. Its special design allows sensitive loads to be transported safely and precisely for indoor and outdoor applications. We are now well placed to meet our customers‘ specific load handling requirements, boost productivity and improve operating safety.” The new single girder Demag V-type crane may be used for various crane types, including overhead travelling cranes, suspension cranes, portal cranes and wall-mounted travelling cranes.

    Demag cranes provide lifting power for the oil and gas sector

    Date: 17 July 2014 00:00

    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

    Date: 05 March 2014 00:00

    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.”
