With Demag crane components and pre-configured crane sets, our crane construction partners manufacture cranes that are tailored precisely to your requirements. There is also a wide range of hoists, from chain hoists to 80t hoists, from the basic variant to the smart high-end solution with intelligent assistance functions. In addition, overhead travelling cranes have an excellent crane geometry that not only ensures excellent travel characteristics, but also enables precise adaptation to the contours of the hall. For all-round greater efficiency and ease of use.

                      What else distinguishes overhead travelling cranes?

                      • Crane girder made of torsionally rigid box-type girder section or
                      • sturdy profile-section girder according to DIN standard for optimal load distribution
                      • Crane gantries in torsionally stiff design for top or side connection
                      • Hoists with a wide range of configuration options:
                        • DVR rope hoist up to 80 t
                        • DC chain hoist with up to 5 t
                      • Low-sway load movement thanks to stepless cross-travel
                    • Crane sets for overhead cranes

                    • With overhead cranes, the entire hall area is available for production: The hall cranes are simply attached to existing ceiling structures – this removes the need for crane runway supports. A larger usable area is therefore available. Alternative: Steel construction islands also enable the solution to be adapted to changes in production structures.
                      Demag offers fully configured crane sets for overhead cranes.

                      Other impressive strengths of the overhead cranes include:

                      • Operation of sub-areas of the hall possible
                      • Handling the load directly on the hall wall via individual adjustment of the overhangs
                      • Lateral overhangs for extending the cross-travel beyond the span
                      • Optionally with DVR rope hoist or DC chain hoist (up to 5 t)
                    • Crane sets for wall-mounted travelling cranes

                    • As hall cranes, wall-mounted travelling cranes are the ideal workstation cranes for stations behind one another. They transport material to the individual workstations and simultaneously perform positioning tasks at the assembly stations. They travel below the level of overhead cranes on overlapping crane runway rails along the building wall. Demag offers fully configured crane sets for wall-mounted travelling cranes.
