Bauma 2019 Preview: Liebherr
December 20, 2018
From April 8-14, Liebherr will give Bauma 2019 attendees a chance to experience its latest innovations first-hand, which range from construction machines, material handling, mining and components. Visitors can look forward to seeing many new technologies and other practical innovations at Liebherr’s 14,000 m2 outdoor stand (809-813) and its indoor stand in Hall A4, Number 326.
Among the many products on display outdoors will be new innovations and developments in the product categories of tower cranes, mobile and crawler cranes, earthmoving, material handling, deep foundation, concrete technologies and mining. Liebherr will also present its latest components indoors on a showroom floor of nearly 450 m2. Here, the focus will be on condition monitoring and system solutions. Guests can also learn more about the latest innovations from Liebherr’s extensive attachment tools program.
At Bauma 2019, Liebherr will debut a new series of Tower Cranes with fiber ropes which will be available for sale starting in April. This new, high-strength fiber rope is around one-fifth the weight of conventional steel rope, but has four times the lifespan and is much easier to use. Liebherr will also unveil five new mobile cranes at the trade fair. These build on proven technologies to provide better performance, efficiency and flexibility. The construction machine manufacturer will also present a new crawler crane with a load capacity of 300 metric tons. It features innovative assistance systems that increase safety and make it easier to handle.
Starting in January and throughout 2019, Liebherr will be introducing its new generation of earthmoving crawler excavators. During the first phase, seven new models will be released in the 22 to 45 metric ton range. The new, eighth generation crawler excavators’ guarantee more power, more productivity, increased safety and greater comfort for the operator.
For the new XPower large wheel loader, trade visitors can also look forward to a total package with many smart assistance systems. Features also include the new rear bystander detection and a built-in, sensor-powered tire-monitoring system. With these and other assistance systems, Liebherr offers total solutions to optimize safety and comfort during everyday wheel loader operation. All these systems are developed by the Liebherr Group so they can be fully integrated into the control systems of the machinery.
In the mining area, visitors will have a chance to experience the power of Ultra-class mining trucks and excavators. A single dashboard makes fleet management easier than ever.
Construction-industry enthusiasts should check out the completely redeveloped 42 M5 XXT automatic concrete pump for the mid-range class. Many technical parts come from Liebherr’s own component production. One product is the new Liebherr Powerbloc drive unit for the pump system. All hydraulic switching and metering elements are fully integrated. This eliminates the need for many hydraulic lines and other parts.
At the fair, Liebherr Components will also reveal the demo version of an app which shows the extensive functionality of all Liebherr's condition monitoring components, from diesel engines to energy storage, hydraulics, transmissions and slewing bearings. In the future, this will enable machine manufacturers to inform fleet managers, service personnel and machine operators about the condition of their components. The Components division will also be presenting a full range of new products.
