Airport baggage-handling systems
Demag’s DSM SpeedHoist is a fast and simple way of handling baggage items weighing up to 80kg. The system offers simple control via the rocker switch in the grip, high lifting speeds up to 70m/min for rapid handling and infinitely variable speed control. The SpeedHoist features optimum load guidance. Special hook designs are also available.
Load-handling equipment for airports
Demag’s DCM-Pro is based on the lifting unit of the DC-Pro chain hoist and the DSM-C control unit, which is connected by a helical cable. Thanks to the control unit, which is rigidly connected to the load handling attachment, the operator only needs one hand to operate the hoist and guide the load.
The system is tailored to both right and left-handed operation and offers quick-change coupling to swap the load handling device.
Suspension cranes for aviation
The installation and removal of aircraft components place high demands on crane systems. The torsionally rigid crane girder design used on Demag suspension cranes prevents any unwanted movement or load sway while parts are being transported or assembly work is carried out. Since the crane runways are fitted direct to the roof superstructure, there is no need for any support columns.
Consequently, the entire hangar area is available for maintenance and repair work, and even unscheduled work can be carried out quickly and flexibly at any time.
Telescoping platform installation for aircraft maintenance
Demag offers telescoping platform installations for maintaining and overhauling aircraft, as well as applying paint finish. They can approach any position of the plane precisely and without difficulty, allowing maintenance personnel to walk on the spacious platform. The platform also features anti-collision protective mesh fencing to prevent damage to the aircraft.
