Simple ergonomic handling

KBK Aluline

Demag KBK Aluline light crane system

International studies prove that ergonomic workplace design has an immediate impact on productivity. Benefit from the productivity opportunities that KBK Aluline has to offer. We have redefined smooth running characteristics for our KBK Aluline light crane system. The result: one of the smoothest-running systems on the market. For operating sequences that are more ergonomic and convenient than ever before. And now for loads weighing up to 2,000 kg.

  • Extremely smooth travel
  • Fast and simple installation and conversion
  • Load capacity up to 2,000 kg
  • Ergonomic load handling for even heavy loads
  • Low noise levels
  • Virtually maintenance-free system
  • Six different aluminium profile sections in four sizes
  • Integrated conductor line for two profile sizes
  • Maximum freedom of planning thanks to modular system design
  • Unique combinations with steel profile sections for maximum distances between suspensions

Product information

The benefits at a glance

Optimum egonomics

  • Convenient and ergonomic push-travel operation, also thanks to low crane deadweights
  • Optimum support for fatigue-free operation
  • Reduced physical burden for workers
  • Lower absenteeism due to illness
  • Higher employee satisfaction
  • Optimum workplace design thanks to comprehensive range of chain hoists and load handling attachments

Highly cost-effective

  • Maximum value and efficiency throughout the entire product service life
  • Compatible with existing KBK Aluline systems
  • Smart combinations with steel profile sections for even larger distances between suspensions
  • Gain valuable floor space thanks to overhead materials handling – linear, e.g. along a production line, and area-serving, e.g. at individual assembly stations

Maximum flexibility

  • Modular system design based on the construction-kit principle
  • Wide range of applications from push-travel and electric systems or pneumatic operation to fully automated installations
  • New components can be integrated or existing units can be replaced with ease at any time
  • Combination of aluminium and steel profile sections possible in one installation
  • Short delivery times thanks to availability of almost all parts from stock
     

Valuable cost savings

  • Fast and simple installation and conversion
  • Reduced forces transmitted to superstructures for lighter, more cost-effective building design
  • Greater distances between suspensions and joints for fewer suspension fittings: additional steelwork largely unnecessary
  • Simple and cost-effective modification and extension to meet changing requirements

Proven system

  • Continuously tested in our own test centre and in external tests
  • Quality made in Germany
  • Light crane system from the market leader with more than 50 years of experience
