Konecranes KBK aluminium workstation lifting systems

Light, durable and versatile lifting


    Konecranes KBK aluminium workstation lifting systems satisfy the demanding requirements of clean workplaces and production lines with a lifting capacity of up to 2,000 kg. For precise and repetitive actions, especially with heavy loads, workers need a reliable, easy-to-use crane that is quick to install, can follow tight production schedules, save costs and reduce downtime.

    The crane’s durable, anodized aluminium surface requires minimal maintenance and gives lifetime protection against corrosion. Lighter than steel by about 50%, it has less rolling resistance in manual applications. Offering exceptional utility and flexibility, the Konecranes KBK aluminium workstation lifting systems are available ceiling-mounted or freestanding, single or double girder, or even on a monorail.
