D-BP II Air Balancer
Improved productivity through shorter cycle times
Intuitive load handling with pneumatic balancer
Moving Loads - Almost Weightless
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 moves with the natural lifting motion of the operator.
Load Handling with Ease
Lifting and positioning of loads, especially fragile loads, is assured by smooth the 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 therefore 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, a clean air supply is the only requirement.
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 attachement 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.
The benefits at a glance
- Significantly higher lifting/lowering speeds possible (adjustable up to 6.5 ft./second)
- Very silent operation compared to chain hoists, far below 70 dB(A)
- Load balancing without the use of buttons for up to 150 lbs is available as an option.
- The Load weight compensation safety feature is standard for all UP/DOWN control systems
- No jerky movements during lifting/lowering procedures, no shock load
- No polygon-effect at all
- Duty cycle 100%, even with low speeds
- Market leading range of options to suit almost any application.
- Patented overspeed brake
- Load Weight Compensation for Up/Down Balancers maintains a safe speed independent of the load being lifted.
- Interlock function can prevent an accidental release of the load from a suspended gripping device.
- Baseload function keeps the air pressure at a safe level, enough to balancer the weight of the gripper.
- Higher speeds result in shorter cycle times and more efficient and cost effective operation
- Wearing-free overload protection
- Simple maintenance – rope exchange in less than 15 minutes
- Almost unlimited lifetime, with little maintenance required.
