One of the largest KBK systems installed by MHE-Demag

In a long and proud history of KBK light crane solutions, a new milestone has been set. Boss Engineering, an agriculture machinery manufacturer is now using one of the largest KBK systems in Australia. While the arrangement of the KBK is comparatively simple, the KBK system at Boss Engineering is pushing the limits due to its size. 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.
