Hatz celebrates 3H50TIC world premiere via live streamPublished 16/4 at 16:26
Following the successful launch of the liquid cooled four cylinder H-series engine four years ago, Hatz has set a further landmark in the up to 62kW power category with the production of three cylinder industrial engines in 2018.
The start of production of the 3H50TIC was available for viewing via live stream at: www.hatz.com/3H50-SOP.
Production of the new engine was marked at a double premiere on 14 March as part of Hatz’s distributor conference held in Chicago. Hatz Diesel of America celebrated the beginning of series production of the 3H50TIC engine, which is the first of four different 3H50 variants now available. Although 4,500 miles separated the conference location and the production line in Ruhstorf an der Rott in Bavaria, Germany, participants at the conference could watch production begin through a live stream via the internet.
By consistently further developing and implementing its downsizing concept, Hatz has developed new benchmarks for the four and the three cylinder variant of its H-series for industrial engines up to 62kW. Compact and economical, robust and light weight, as well as environmentally friendly, the H-series engines achieve impressive power. Depending on application and the applicable emissions standards, customers may also choose between the 3H50TI and TICD variant (with turbocharger, intercooler, catalytic converter and particulate filter) that will also enter series production in 2018. Series production of the 3H50T is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2019.
“The ‘applicationizer’ is the central generic term for our H-series: an engine concept that no application can resist,” explains marketing team leader Stephan Gritsch. "Our H-series is suitable for a particularly high number of applications, and sets standards for different drive solutions in mobile and stationary compact machines. We want to express this versatility with the term 'the applicationizer', and stylishly demonstrate this with a range of campaigns throughout the year."
To mark the start of the 3H50TIC's production, Hatz decided to broadcast it as an internet live stream for the first time to coincide with its Chicago distributor conference. Wolfram Hatz, majority shareholder and chairman of the advisory board, and Stephan Gritsch, began the live stream with a presentation on the development history of the H-series. Via a link to the production line, Martin Hain, technical sales team leader, and Matthias Hochleitner, development engineer H-series three cylinder, highlighted the development of the engine family in general, and the new three cylinder 3H50TIC in particular. The first series production engine was completed live via the live stream.
Wolfram Hatz said of the event, “As a foresighted solution for EU Stage V without particulate filter, the most compact H-series engine, the 3H50T with 18.4kW, also offers the highest torque in its class, 130kN. At the upper end of the power range, our four cylinder 4H50TI impresses with 62kW and 265kN, with a displacement of just 2l. I am certain that with the three cylinder versions we have launched an engine concept onto the market that will continue to lastingly influence the development of working machines in the future.”
