Electrical & Electronics

In the electrical and electronics industries, the manufacturing of components requires meticulous material handling throughout numerous processes.
For instance, fragile matrices and finished screening foils above the vats of an electroplating shop require clear overhead handling. Our KBK installations enable you to handle your components (in sizes of up to 1.5 m²) without much manual effort, yet with pin-point precision, into and out of the matrices’ baths. The components are secured to flanges to form drums. Our KBK range can also assist with the soldering of printed circuit boards, switchgears, transformers and similar components within all sorts of consumer electronics.  To streamline your assembly lines we have a host of solutions, ranging from the previously mentioned KBK ranges to lightweight standard EOT cranes and various industrial lifts.

Chain Hoists

Our Demag DC chain hoists set a new industrial standard with their all-inclusive design. Our customers get a fully featured product, with many features already integrated into the chain hoist's standard configuration, instead of having to be ordered and bought as extras elsewhere.
Our chain hoists feature higher speed for increased performance, and improved safety and reliability, thanks to the unique new safety concept and monitoring system.

KBK Crane Construction Kits

The KBK crane construction kit is an efficient and reliable solution for the construction of suspension monorails and suspension cranes.

The construction kit consists of standardised mechanical and control components. This facilitates planning, construction and maintenance. KBK installations can be altered and extended at any time. Straight and curved track sections, track switches, turntables and lift and drop sections can be combined to provide the widest range of material handling solutions.

Installations can range from a straight connection between two workplaces with only a few metres of track, to complex monorail networks, and from simple manual control to automatic systems with computer-controlled integration of the various system areas. KBK installations can be easily adapted to new material handling requirements.
Monorail and crane installations with load capacities up to 3200 kg from the KBK crane construction kit have a successful track record going back over 40 years. Installations built with these components can be found in facilities and workshops of almost any type and every size.

Conductor Systems

The main function of a conductor system is to transfer electricity from a stationary source to a mobile user (mobile electrification). Stationary conductor rails are mounted along the path of a vehicle that requires electric power. The stationary conductors are connected to a main power source. A current collector is mounted on the moving vehicle and is installed to make contact with the electrified conductors. The current collector is comprised of electric brushes that feed electricity into wires, which power the vehicle. The concept is similar to track lighting except that with track lighting the lights do not move. For our systems, the vehicle can move whilst picking up power from the conductor rails. Or it can also stand still. The moving vehicle can be anything, from a vehicle on an amusement ride or a crane unloading a ship, to production carriers on an assembly line.

Contactless Power Systems

CPS®(Contactless Power System) is the contactless power transmission system from VAHLE. The power is transmitted inductively, similar to the transformer principle along an "elongated" coil.

Cable Reel Systems

Cable reels can be used for many systems that require the payout and retrieval of cable to a moving vehicle. These are often used for lifting devices or to connect power to equipment during maintenance. If your system requires a heavy-duty cable reel, we recommend our motor driven cable reels. These cable reels can accommodate heavier cables over longer distances than spring operated cable reels.

Cable Festoon Systems

Our Cable Festoon Systems feature a steel, stainless steel or PVC track enclosure for cable carriers (with wheels) to ride in. The cable carriers have saddles in many different sizes and types to accommodate one or multiple cables and hoses. These systems are also referred to as cable trolley systems. Furthermore, we offer festoon systems where the cable carriers run on standard shape I-Beams. I-Beam carriers can operate faster than C-Track systems and can carry very large and heavy cable packages. These systems can also be motorised to be able to handle very fast operating STS, Ship to Shore, cranes.
