|The KBK crane construction kit is a modular system of components used to build suspension monorails and suspension crane installations in the load capacity range up to a maximum of 3200 kg (max. 2000 kg for KBK Aluline). Owing to the large number of standardized components, virtually any handling task can be implemented. The range of possible solutions includes simple manually driven workplace cranes and complete material flow systems featuring drives and fully automatic control systems. Solutions can be provided for handling loads within an area or along a certain production line.
Since KBK systems are always attached to a roof or a supporting structure, they do not require any valuable floor space like other ground-level handling equipment. In addition, the system is highly versatile, since all connections are bolted or fitted. KBK installations can be converted or extended and, therefore, adapted to changing requirements on site at any time.
KBK installations are extremely smooth-running. Therefore, they meet even the most demanding ergonomic requirements. This is achieved by a combination of cold-rolled (KBK Aluline: extruded) profile sections of outstanding rigidity and low deadweight and trolleys with plastic travel rollers featuring anti-friction bearings. All components are manufactured in series.
Depending on requirements, KBK installations can be fitted with a variety of hoist units. Electric chain hoists, a fast electric rope winch and pneumatic rope balancers are available as standard. KBK installations are also ideal support systems for state-of-the-art handling devices such manipulator arms or rigid vertical lifting axes.
