D-BP II Air Balancer from Demag

Our Air Balancer Offers Improved Productivity Through Shorter Cycle Times

Intuitive Load Handling with Pneumatic Balancer

Moving Loads - Almost Weightless

With this air balancer, you can experience pneumatic control when moving loads weighing up to 770 lbs. in an almost weightless way. The Demag D-BP II Air Balancer is ideal for assembly processes, repairs and industrial production tasks in many industries, including the manufacturing and automotive industries. Designed to complement the manual lifting process, the D-BP II Air Balancer moves with the natural lifting motion of the operator.

The D-BP II Air Balancer Makes Load Handling Easy

When using the D-BP II Air Balancer from Demag, lifting and positioning of loads, especially fragile loads, is smooth with jerk-free, continuous three-dimensional movements. Thanks to load balancing, loads of different weights can be lifted at almost identical speeds, and picking up and setting down can be safely controlled. You can choose between pushbutton control or balancing control for loads weighing up to 150 lbs., or you can choose a combination of both.

The D-BP II Air Balancer is an optimal solution for fast pick-and-place operations. The compressed-air drive facilitates low-noise operation with a maximum level of 70 dB(A). In addition, the pneumatic drive has a virtually unlimited service life, with limited maintenance required. Air Balancers do not need an electric power supply, as a clean air supply is the only requirement.

Air Balancers with Industry-Leading Safety 

The D-BP II is equipped with a patented safety brake to block the rope if the lifting motion is too fast and manages uncontrolled motion with the quick and easy brake reset. The overload protection arrangement of the Air Balancer is wear-free.

Optional features can enhance safe load handling. Its interlock function can detect an attached load and can prevent a suspended load from being accidently released if a suitable load handling attachment is used. The additional BaseLoad function keeps the air pressure level in the balancer at a safe level to suspend the weight of the gripper.

Many Suspension Possibilities to Complete Solutions

Whether you need fluid, precise lifting in automotive assembly lines, manufacturing, or industrial production, the D-BP II Air Balancer travels smoothly and efficiently on all ceiling hung Demag KBK light crane systems, freestanding workstations and jib cranes.
