The new LIGHTster crane system lifts up to 2,000kg and, like the existing steel version ProfileMaster, three different profiles offer a “multitude of purposes as required by the circumstances and conditions on site,” SWF says.


Single as well as double girder versions in standard or short built are possible, while the systems can be designed as manually operated push cranes or motorised cranes. The narrow nylon wheels on the galvanised manual trolleys allow “easy and quiet moving during operation.”


SWF added: “Simple but robust profile joints as well as a few necessary fixing points make the mounting on site easier and more effective. The components that arrive pre-sorted, make a quick overview and sorting of the parts possible. LIGHTster optimises the time and manpower requirements.”

Power supply for LIGHTster is possible in two different ways: via flat cable under the profile and via contact line parallel to to the profile.


The reduced own weight of the aluminium crane has a positive effect on the building’s statics and “makes the mounting for the installers lighter and easier.”

Furthermore, in combination with electric chain hoists SK with integrated frequency converter control for the hoisting process, it is possible to operate in a “precise and gentle manner.”

SWF explains that the stepless lifting and lowering of the loads ensures on the one hand minimum wear of the hoist and on the other hand a nearly concussion free transport.

The electric chain hoist SK with frequency inverter control is available for maximum loads from 250-2,000kg. The hoists are delivered with an upper hook as standard. Push or motor trolley are optional.

SWF Krantechnik will offer the chance to test the LIGHTster in Hall 12 Stand C50.
