KAMAG Transporttechnik is headquartered in Ulm which is located on the Danube in southern Germany. The main focus of KAMAG is the production of industrial vehicles, modular transporters and vehicles for terminal logistics operations; the company has a skilled workforce of 240 employees while the premises now extends over an area of 45,000 m².
KAMAG Transporttechnik was founded in Karlsdorf-Neuthard in 1969 with the idea of transferring heavy load transportation from rail to road. One year later, the company moved to the Donautal industrial area in Ulm, today's corporate headquarters. The first products included special vehicles for shipyards and steel plants. From 1975 onwards, the steadily-growing enterprise achieved major international successes, especially in Asia, with the launch of combinable shipyard transporters. In 1979, KAMAG began deliveries of vehicles - first developed in 1971 - to the American space agency (NASA).
Within the TII Group, KAMAG Transporttechnik is now a centre of competence focussing on industrial lift transporters, steel plant facility vehicles, modular self-propelled transporters and vehicles for terminal logistics.
IMPULSES FOR THE INDUSTRY
The KAMAG Wiesel interchangeable lifting truck is designed for the internal transport of swap bodies of all sizes. This all-rounder provides full performance when handling swap bodies even under the toughest of conditions thus saving a lot of time and money. Wiesel customers include well-known logistics companies, mail-order companies, a wide range of postal and industrial companies as well as numerous CEP companies (courier, express, parcel services). Thanks to its hydrostatic drive, the KAMAG Wiesel is extremely low-maintenance. The high level of serviceability is achieved through the use of serial production components whereby the fuel consumption has set new benchmarks which the competition has to follow. As a result, this makes the "Wiesel" an indispensable part of efficient yard logistics. With the KAMAG Wiesel, KAMAG Transporttechnik has set a new standard in the market and established itself as the market leader.
In order to meet the increasing requirements of steel plants in terms of load quantity and height along with loading time, KAMAG Transporttechnik developed its largest-ever slag pot carriers on a U-frame basis in 2013. The 82 t vehicle is 11.9 metres long, 7.7 metres wide, 4.3 metres high, and can accommodate a 130-tonne payload. The single-axis drive unit pulls the 5.8-metre long and 4.35-metre high slag pot with a loading capacity of 45 m³, and has been further developed by KAMAG in order to be able to comfortably and safely transport ever-increasing payloads. Slag pot carriers in a U-frame construction are used for handling of slag pots in areas of restricted heights, e.g. when driving through production hall doors and are characterized by short moving times and a low ride height. This type of design is likewise used in a modified form for transporting molten steel.
KAMAG's powerful K 24 modular transporter is used for moving large industrial installations and transporting complete bridges or other large components. Loads of 10,000 to 15,000 tons are no longer a rarity. In the shipbuilding sector, companies are also increasingly relying on modular transporters. Depending on the weight of the ship components to be transported, combinations can be precisely configured precisely to exactly match the requirements of the respective customer. The hydrostatic drive turns the heavy load units into powerful but nevertheless controllable vehicles.
