Simple ergonomic handling

KBK Aluline

Demag KBK Aluline light crane system


KBK Aluline is the right solution wherever a track and crane installation has to deliver high performance at a minimum weight. Our new KBK Aluline modular crane system is suited for many applications and enables customers to design almost any overhead suspension crane or monorail system with smooth operation.

New KBK Aluline:

    • highly ergonomic as loads can be moved and stopped quickly with minimum effort
    • extremely low weight coupled with high rigidity
    • very smooth operation thanks to tightly integrated system components
    • convenient handling loads of weighing up to 4,400 lbs (2,000 KG)
    • enables future modifications due to modular system design
    • Fast and simple installation and conversion
    • Low noise levels
    • Virtually maintenance-free system
    • Six different aluminium profile sections in four sizes
    • Integrated conductor line for two profile sizes
    • Unique combinations with steel profile sections for maximum distances between suspensions

    Product information

    Key Benefits

    Optimum egonomics

    • Convenient and ergonomic push-travel operation 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
