From 24 to 27 April 2024 in area Ext 6 C 051 of the Intermat trade show, Liebherr will present about 20 machines from several product segments, including tower cranes, mobile and crawler cranes, components, earthmoving machinery, material handling technology, deep foundation machines and concrete technology. The company will also showcase innovation work of the group in the fields of digitalisation, drives and service.

At Liebherr, digitalisation is an important driver of innovation and new product development. On the one hand, it increases the efficiency of processes and therefore helps to conserve valuable resources. On the other hand, new information technologies and digital networking are opening up opportunities to develop products and services further and to implement customer-centric solutions along an entire customer journey: from planning to operation, performance and maintenance and even safety-relevant aspects.

Another key commitment is the ongoing work in drive technologies, which form the basis for drives tailored to customers, delivering maximum power for minimum CO₂ emissions. Given the variety of applications at play in the construction industry, a universal solution is not suitable, which is why Liebherr pursues an approach that embraces different technologies.

A suitable example is the Liduro Power Port, a mobile energy storage system for supplying power to construction sites in remote locations which do not have an adequate e-infrastructure, a solution that is provided from Liebherr’s electrified product programme of the components product segment. With that, hybrid or fully electric construction machines and cranes can be operated or charged with zero local emissions. In this way, Liebherr supports its customers and partners in achieving their economic and ecological objectives – offering the optimal drive for every machine and every application.

On display at the Intermat 2024 is a R 972 of the generation 6.2 crawler excavator with operational capability of approximately 72 tonnes. What sets the R 972 apart is the productivity, driving comfort and modern design. The low fuel consumption and the innovative assistance functions make it an ideal machine for the requirements of large-scale construction sites and extraction sites.

The R 972 crawler excavator features the Liebherr assistance system Bucket Fill Assist (BFA). This innovative system, developed by Liebherr, facilitates a better fill level of the bucket, faster cycle times and better penetration of the material. As well as reducing the wear on the bucket, this reduces fuel consumption by up to 10 percent and reduces vibrations for improved driver comfort.

Liebherr will also present the TA 230 Litronic articulated dump truck. The off-terrain machine is designed for operational efficiency in the extraction industry and when transporting excavated material. The articulated dump trucks are also a useful assistant for larger infrastructure projects. Liebherr offers numerous cutting-edge driver assistance systems for the TA 230, which support the machine operator and, in turn, increase productivity and safety. One example of this is the innovative weighing device, installed as standard, which registers the loaded weight in real time.

The group’s first battery-electric wheel loader L 507 E, which is available in several European countries, will also be on display at the Intermat. It combines the well-known benefits of a Liebherr stereoloader with a Liebherr-developed battery-electric drive concept. The performance of the L 507 E is identical to Liebherr’s conventionally powered wheel loaders in the same size class. With its L 507 E, Liebherr is showing its commitment to a high-voltage battery system developed specially for wheel loader applications, which ensures a highly effective delivery of power and efficient loading operations.

The new ETM truck mixer series featuring electric drum drive, when combined with an electric chassis, renders it possible to transport concrete without producing emissions. The process of unloading concrete on the site is also clean and quiet. The ETM attachments are available as fixed superstructures and semi-trailers. Visitors to the Intermat will be able to see a fully electric articulated ETM 1205.

The 36 XXT truck-mounted concrete pump benefits not only from a new five-part folding boom, but also from the Powerbloc drive unit and the semi-closed oil circuit. It is a versatile machine offering numerous comforts and safety features, such as the ergonomic steps and simplified access.

An ultra-compact design without any boom overhang at the rear makes it extremely manoeuvrable in tight spaces. A particular highlight of the 36 XXT concrete pump is the newly developed ‘Powerbloc’ pump drive unit, which has the major benefit of all hydraulic switching and measuring elements being fully integrated.
