With its message, ‘Together. Now & Tomorrow’, Liebherr will give attendees a chance to learn more about its products, innovations and trends in the construction machinery industry. In addition, all the stands will feature many different activities to bring the, ‘Together. Now & Tomorrow’, message to life.
An overview of Liebherr’s bauma stands
Construction on Liebherr’s outdoor stand at bauma Munich began a full half year before the opening of the world’s biggest trade fair for construction, material handling and mining machines, vehicles and equipment. With over 14,000 m2 of space, the open air terrain stand (809-813) will provide space for more than 60 exhibits. Among the many products on display 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 equipment.
Liebherr will also present its latest components in hall A4 (stand 326) on a showroom floor of nearly 450 m2. Here, the focus will be on condition monitoring and system solutions. In hall B5 (stand 439), visitors can learn more about the latest innovations from Liebherr’s extensive attachment tools program. Visitors can also find out more about internships and entry level positions with Liebherr at the Career Point on the company’s outdoor stand, as well as in the ICM Foyer (stand 308). Here, Liebherr will be one of 16 top companies taking part in the ‘Think big!’ event for schoolchildren.
Technological highlights of today, innovations of tomorrow
For Liebherr, gathering feedback from customers, machine operators and industry insiders is crucial to facing the future together, making bauma a perfect platform. One of the key topics for the future is digitisation, which is now impacting all product areas in terms of assistance systems or service, and training options. At bauma 2019, Liebherr will also debut a new series of tower cranes with fibre ropes which will be available for sale from April. This new, high strength fibre rope is around 20% of 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, which 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 300t which features innovative assistance systems that increase safety and make it easier to handle. Starting in January and throughout 2019, Liebherr will also be introducing its new generation of earthmoving crawler excavators, with during the first phase seven new models being released in the 22t to 45t range. The new, eighth generation crawler excavators provide more power, more productivity, increased safety and greater comfort for the operator.
Also new is the XPower large wheel loader range, with a total package containing many smart assistance systems. Features also include the new rear bystander detection, and a built in sensor powered tyre monitoring system. With these and other assistance systems, Liebherr offers a total solutions package to optimise safety and comfort during everyday wheel loader operation. All these systems have been developed by the Liebherr Group so they can be fully integrated into the control systems of the machinery.
For the construction industry, the completely redeveloped 42 M5 XXT automatic concrete pump for the mid-range class will be shown, with many technical parts coming from Liebherr’s own component production. One major product is the new Liebherr Powerbloc drive unit for the pump system. All hydraulic switching and metering elements are fully integrated which eliminates the need for many hydraulic lines and other parts. In the mining area, visitors will have a chance to experience the power of Ultra-class mining trucks and excavators fitted with a single dashboard making fleet management easier than ever.
At bauma, 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.
