It is the right solution wherever a track and crane system has to deliver high performance at a minimum weight. It is a comprehensive system that can be easily integrated and extended to provide versatile solutions, including configurations that can reach previously inaccessible locations. It offers very smooth operation thanks to tightly integrated system components and can conveniently handle loads weighing up to 2,200 lbs (1,000 KG).

The Demag® DC-Bas Hoist, which can be used with the KBK Aluline system or with other light bridge cranes, takes into account the needs of developing markets worldwide. This reliable product provides performance and quality, besides being extremely durable, even when used in hostile environments. The equipment is available in four different sizes. With lift capacity ranging from 125 kg to 2.000 kg, they can be used with the modular KBK system or with type I laminate profile monorails. The product has an anti-fall system integrated to the trolley, in compliance with all local rules (NR 12) and with safety as a key prority.

Aerial Work Platforms

Its maximum working height of 56.85 m (186 ft) - the equivalent of nearly 20 floors - and maximum horizontal reach of 24.4 m (80 ft), enable the SX-180 boom lift to deliver a large working envelope to handle an impressively broad range of tasks currently inaccessible by other access equipment.

It also includes a 3.05m (10 ft) rotating jib to place workers and their gear exactly where they are needed. The SX-180 easily accommodates two professionals with its 2.44 m (8 ft) by 0.91 m (3 ft) work platform that provides a capacity of up to 340 kg (750 lb).
