This particular model is the lightest model within the Demag Pillar swing Jib crane range. Unlike the more standard ‘I’ beam jibs which use solid steel beams the KBK lightweight pillar swing jib crane uses a specially designed hollow steel track system. This considerable lowers the overall weight of the swing jib crane.
The fact that it is lighter in weight enables it to be rotated much easier and more smoothly around its pillar mount. They have a maximum slew of 300 degrees though this can be restricted with the help of the special adjustable limiters. These are particularly beneficial if you need the jib arm to stop in a particular place each time, like on a production line. The opening which runs along the underside of the beam facilitates the attachment of a special trolley, and hoist system as well as holding the power cables.
7 meters is the longest reaching model available in the KBK lightweight range and the highest capacity model can lift up to 1000kg. You can find out precise details in the table below.
Because these cranes are bolted to secure foundations, often with the help of special setting chemicals you can be assured of safety. You can read more about the special mounting on the Demag Pillar swing jib crane page here. These cranes are classified to DIN15018 H1B3; and also available in a wall mounted version.
