Food and beverages

Food products often have to travel a long distance from where they are harvested until they are turned into finished foodstuffs. We help to ensure that the many steps along the way throughout the process can be completed as efficiently as possible.

Fields of application

  • Agricultural production
  • Industrial food processing
  • Beverages industry
  • Distribution and shipping/food and beverages retail trade

Agricultural production

Demag cranes are already in operation before the start of the value chain in industrial agricultural production. Our overhead-travelling cranes provide for the storage of big bags filled with raw materials (e.g. cane sugar). In companies where materials are processed locally, Demag cranes also ensure that machine spare parts are handled safely and reliably.

Industrial food processing

In this sector, the space-saving design of Demag universal cranes and components enables then to be integrated into almost any production installation. Our industrial drive solutions are used to move rail-mounted distribution carriages precisely in production and storage operations – e.g. for handling containers of raw and auxiliary materials. And our motors also ensure that the right quantity of material is employed in blending processes.

Beverages industry

The tasks performed by cranes and industrial drives in the beverages industry are as varied as the range of beverages products.We always deliver the right configuration – from the KBK light crane system in a wine cellar to complete industrial drive solutions in a large-scale dairy.

Distribution and shipping

We also provide valuable help for the handling of packed foods and beverages – with Demag KBK light cranes and compact hoists, which offer ergonomic relief for workers during handling operations.
