kirin crane

The feedback, ideas and wishes of many users all over the world have been implemented with this new crane concept. The crane can be assembled in the shortest possible time thanks to the modular lightweight construction and the new locking mechanism.

Speacial Hart-Coat® surface treatment effectively protects the crane from scratches and other external influences. Backlash-free connecting plates and additional struts increase the stability of the crane system. In developing this new crane concept, safety and user-friendliness have always been paramount.

Our kirin crane Variations

The KIRIN KRAN SYSTEM is the result of countless feedback from our customers all over the world. But even though we have been working with greatest care and attention to detail in the development of this new camera crane, there is absolutely nothing like the real stress test in its “natural habitat” – the film set.

In order to improve even the very last details, the KIRIN was used in several production. Always with the aim of developing a user-friendly, versatile, robust and reliable camera crane that users will love.

The modular design concept allows for multiple setup-options. Different head and counterweight options, counter-weight baskets of holders and different crane base dolly make the Kirin not only one, but multiople cranes.
