MHE-Demag, one of Australia’s leading suppliers of cranes, hoists and warehousing equipment, has successfully installed one of the largest KBK systems in Australia.
Boss Engineering, an agriculture machinery manufacturer, now boasts a crane with a runway length of 94 meters and girder size of 13 meters.
While the arrangement of the KBK is comparatively simple, the KBK system at Boss Engineering is increasing productivity and allowing for a high degree of flexibility and the ability to work on multiple machines at once.
With a runway length of 94 meters and a girder size of 13 meters this KBK installation covers an area 1222 m2.
To put these numbers of square meters into perspective, most light crane systems go across a range of about 30 to 40 m2.
Boss Engineering uses the KBK system along their assembly line. For a seamless production the KBK installation is equipped with four girders which carry a DC-Com 2-250 hoist each.
This arrangement give Boss Engineering a high degree of flexibility and opportunity to work on multiple machines at once, while keeping the ability of ergonomic material handling and its associated precision.
