Since its first showing, Demag V-profile continually impresses users and experts worldwide, with its innovativeness and efficiency. This year, it already won several prestigious awards, such as the international "Red Dot" award for the best product design and "Best of 2015" awarded by the German Industriepreis. It was also nominated for "German Design Award 2016".
But, what is so special about this crane?
Reduced weight, transparency, fast settling of freight, durability - these are all features of the new Demag V-profile crane. Thanks to its innovative, open design, the considerable amount of material is saved, which results in significantly less weight of the crane. Profile design also allowed greater transience of light - for approximately 30%, and resistance to wind is reduced for 55 %, what makes this crane desirable choice for outdoor work. The joints were improved to reduce vibration of the crane, while providing optimal power transfer and even distribution of tension and compression forces.
Compared to conventional cranes, Demag V-profile has 17% less weight, 30% smaller amplitude of vibration, and doubled life span. We can conclude that this open approach to construction of cranes is significantly more effective than the classic one, and that the Demag V-profile opened a new direction of development of crane construction.
