50 year milestone
01 July 2013
When its Junior System was introduced in 1963, the foundation was laid for the worldwide success story of the Demag KBK crane construction kit.
In the last 50 years more than 10,000km of KBK profile have been brought into the market. Over the same period, the crane construction kit has undergone continuous development, and today Terex Material Handling serves a wide variety of customers in many different industries.
The Demag KBK light crane system is a modular system construction kit for overhead transport solutions in a number of different load ranges up to 3200kg. Single and double girder suspension cranes, suspension monorails, slewing jibs and cranes, as well as portal and stacker cranes, may all be individually configured.
They may be used as a stand alone solution or as linear transport up to areas serving crane systems. User-friendly, the KBK light crane system offers many possibilities for transporting loads quickly, safely and efficiently above production level. The range now includes nine steel profiles, from the KBK 100 up to the KBK III outside running section.
