Conductor System uses Z-shaped bracket for installation.

September 1, 2015

Designed to supply power to mobile equipment and to transfer power and control signals, Demag DCL-Pro uses Z-shaped suspension to ease installation, especially in narrow situations where steelwork is positioned next to wall of building. Suspension can be attached to upper and lower flange of IPE-type I-beam girders as well as to upper flange of INP girders. To ensure smooth operation, cleaning system removes deposits and dirt accumulations from copper rails and profile section housing. Read More

Overhead Traveling Crane is designed for minimal deadweight.

February 13, 2015

Demag V-type crane is designed with reduced crane deadweight, which produces less wheel pressure, minimizes forces transmitted to existing building structure, and increases max load capacity. Diaphragm joints allow lighter loads to be transmitted to crane wheel components as well as to entire building and extends service life to >500,000 load cycles. Also, oscillation characteristics enable heavy and sensitive loads to be positioned precisely and quickly. Read More
