EXPERT CONSULTING TO SAVE YOUR RESOURCES.

Our team of experts offers personalized advice when you decide on one of our products for your purposes. We always focus on economic and energy efficiency. Using our experience we can greatly help you with planning a project. We support you during the development of your concept so you can save precious time and other resources. As your business partner we also provide answers for all questions concerning the maintenance, renewal, and care of loading devices.

CUSTOMIZED ENGINEERING MEETS CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS.

Our in-house engineering department helps to develop turnkey solutions. They fit your individual requirements in different environments (cold storage, handling of hot steel or similar) and under high stress conditions (e.g. 24/7 operation). We will deliver a finished product which can be integrated into your system without a change of existing structures, equipment, or processes.

CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS FOR MANY INDUSTRIES.

We develop and manufacture individual solutions for the handling of special load carriers, attachment devices for stacking and centering, or tilting
and pivoting systems for testing purposes. Because of their modular design our products can be combined which gives them a competitive edge. Our range of customized applications is just as diverse as the industries in which they are used.

ROBUST PRODUCTS THAT ARE ALWAYS IN MOTION.

We offer a broad range of products. We develop a variety of lifting devices for transport and conveyor systems covering loads from 20 kilograms to 50 tons. Our products may be customized but they all have the same advantages: every product made by AFB is energy efficient, extremely solid and highly durable. This results in low maintenance costs for our customers. Spare parts are available throughout the entire life cycle of our products.

QUICK, SIMPLE, AND PERFECT INTEGRATION INTO YOUR SYSTEM.

Implementing new equipment in the areas of production, conveyor and storage systems or distribution centers is often challenging. We develop and mount components which can be specifically integrated in your already existing system. This way you have to change neither your product nor your material flow.

COMPREHENSIVE SERVICE YOU CAN RELY ON.

We know that reliability and excellent service are key success factors. We offer on-site and in-house training sessions, maintenance operations and repairs. In the event of damage we guarantee at any time a quick solution and minimum down times by providing direct personal contact, an emergency hotline, express deliveries and spare parts at fair prices.
