D-BP II Air Balancer

Pneumatic control to lift loads

Demag Peumatic Balancer

When you want pneumatic control to lift loads up to 350 kg, choose the Demag D-BPII Air Balancer. Designed to complement the manual lifting process, the D-BPII moves with the natural lifting motion of the operator with no jerky movements. Loads feel weightless up to 150 pounds and is available with an automatic load balancing feature. The air balancer is equipped with a safety brake to stop the rope when upward motion is too fast and manages uncontrolled motion with the quick and easy brake reset. Its pneumatic control makes the cost of ownership lower and more economical to maintain. Whether you need fluid, precise lifting in automotive assembly lines, manufacturing, or industrial production, the D-BP II travels smoothly and efficiently on all ceiling hung Demag KBK light crane systems, freestanding workstations and jib cranes.

Product information

The benefits at a glance

These are the advantages of air balancers compared to electrical rope / chain hoists

  •  Significantly higher lifting/lowering speeds (up to 2000 mm/sec)  (up to 59 in/sec)
  •  High speed results in shorter cycle times  More cost efficient operation.
  •  Very silent operation compared to chain hoists, far below 70 dB(A).
  •  Wearing-free overload protection.
  •  Load balancing without the use of buttons with appropriate control circuit
  •  Load weight compensation standard for all UP/DOWN control systems.
  •  No jerky movements during lifting/lowering procedures, no shock load.
  •  No polygon-effect at all.
  •  No electricity required -> more safety!
  •  Duty cycle 100%, even with low speeds.
  •  Simple maintenance – rope exchange in less than 15 minutes.
  •  Almost unlimited life time, if regular maintenance is done.
  •  Market leading range of options allows excellent application based support.
