Liebherr product developments and innovations to be showcased at Bauma 2019

From April 8-14, Liebherr will give attendees of Bauma 2019 a unique chance to experience its latest innovations, which range from construction machines, material handling, mining and components.

Visitors can look forward to seeing many new technologies and other practical innovations at the company’s outdoor stand (809-813) and its indoor stand in hall A4 (stand 326).

Construction on Liebherr’s stand on Bauma’s outdoor terrain in Munich, Germany, began a full half year before the opening of the world’s top trade fair for construction, material handling and mining machines, vehicles and equipment.

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.

Liebherr will also present its latest components in hall A4 (stand 326) on a showroom floor of nearly 450sqm where the focus will be on condition monitoring and system solutions. In hall B5 (stand 439), guests can learn more about the latest innovations from the company’s extensive attachment tools program.

Visitors can also find out more 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). Liebherr will be one of 16 top companies taking part in the THINK BIG! event for schoolchildren.

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. They 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 tonnes. 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 generations of crawler excavators. During the first phase, seven new models will be released in the 22 to 45-tonne range. The new eight-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 tyre-monitoring system.

With these and other assistance systems, Liebherr offers total solutions to optimise 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 will be able to 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, including the new 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.

Liebherr Components will also reveal the demo version of an app that shows the extensive functionality of all Liebherr’s conditions 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.
