Unique Crane Solutions (actual photos
Last year Facilities Engineering was asked to construct a specially
designed crane system for the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa,
FL. This system was to be the centerpiece of one of their new exhibits,
which is part of their new facility called Kids in Charge.
This particular exhibit was created to expose children to the inner
workings or factories and ports that are a common site throughout
the Tampa Area.
Facilities Engineering was able to design a freestanding crane system
through the utilization of Demag components, specifically KBK and
DK Chain Hoists. KBK is an enclosed track system that can be configured
in a variety of ways for any application where the desired capacities
are one ton or less. KBK is often sold as a manual system due to its
effortless yet controlled movements, however it can be powered both
in single and dual speeds.
The particular system has two motorized bridges, each of which is
controlled by an operator that is safely outside of the working area.
Each bridge has a motorized trolley and electric chain hoist with
a small circular electro-permanent magnet attached to the load hook.
These magnets are used to pick up small sheet metal & foam blocks
that are placed onto and removed from a central conveyor system.
What this system lacked in size it made up for with the complex control
systems that includes numerous travel limit switches incorporated
to prevent to premature destruction (if you think your operators are
hard on equipment, watch a child work it and then re-evaluate your
This project is proof that there is no capacity too small or load
too delicate to handle for the material-handling experts at Facilities
