Design award for crane
10 March 2015
The Demag V-type crane has won the iF (International Forum) Design Award for its outstanding design. The award recognises the innovative construction of the V-type crane girder, which is based on bionic principles.
In a similar way to bone structure, the design only uses material where it is necessary. Depending on requirements, the new girder design can be adapted with millimetre accuracy to the height of existing or planned buildings.
This versatility facilitates simple implementation in existing production bays and greater freedom for planning new buildings.
