Light crane system with strong benefits

The E range of forklift trucks built by Linde Material Handling features efficiency and high performance. Linde already attaches great importance on performance and flexibility in production – and opted for the proven Demag KBK light crane system in the assembly line for its new BR 387 and 388 forklift truck ranges.

One system to meet all needs

Crane bridges optimised to reduce their weight, compact dimensions and versatile mounting connections – the KBK light crane system offers a wide variety of benefits. Linde decided in favour of combinations made of KBK aluminium and steel profile sections and an intelligent connection between the crane systems and the process control system. This arrangement enables monitoring functions to be integrated and adapted to match changed cycle conditions.

Prepared for the future

When the assembly workers have learned how to work according to the production cycles, Linde plans to switch over to continuous production. The cranes supplied by Demag are already prepared for this step: friction-wheel travel drives can be disengaged and the crane can slowly move along the line by means of the positive connection.
