Light Lifting Almost Anywhere - Demag Freestanding Crane Systems

When you’re lifting in an assembly line setup, you want to maximize your space while providing a safe working environment for your workers. Demag has a full line of freestanding, modular crane options to optimize your light lifting processes. Freestanding KBK Crane Systems are available in cantilever, lamppost and standard portal setups. These three designs allow you to install lifting equipment easily in existing locations while eliminating the additional costs and hassles associated with assessing the buildings structural steel and other properties. “Freestanding systems are optimal for lifting light items that would be too heavy or too unsafe for individual workers to handle,” says Brian Stephens, Senior Product Manager, Handling Solutions and Drives. “Since these systems don’t rely on the superstructure and structural steel, we can install these systems almost anywhere and they become more mobile than other solutions out there. The system can be moved with any process changes and production line moves.”

Demag offers the widest selection of components for its modular, monorail and enclosed track KBK Crane Systems. “This gives you the opportunity to customize a system with off-the-shelf components to meet your needs,” continues Stephens. “You don’t have to settle for something that doesn’t meet all your needs.” Demag Freestanding KBK Crane Systems lift loads up to 2 tons and allow for carts, tow motors and other machinery to move freely within the area.
