Liebherr exhibits at ConExpo 2023 from March 14-18 will offer visitors the opportunity to discover the latest developments from the areas of construction machines, cranes, material handling technology and components.
“On your site”, is the motto at this year’s ConExpo. It represents Liebherr’s promise to be at the customers’ side around the world at all times – whether it is directly on the construction site with high-quality machines or through individual advice, global services and comprehensive solutions.
The Liebherr booths at ConExpo 2023 offer space for more than 30 exhibits on a total exhibition area of almost 5 600 m². The area was enlarged by approximately 670 m² due to the addition of a demo area, where Liebherr will show its machines in action for the first time at ConExpo.
The TA 230 Litronic from the new generation of articulated dump trucks, has been redeveloped from scratch not only featuring a new design. The machine was unveiled to the United States market during Liebherr USA’s Customer Day event in May 2022 and it is now introduced to the rest of the North American market at ConExpo 2023. The TA 230 Litronic showcases performance, efficiency and utmost comfort.
Liebherr’s Generation 8 crawler excavators have proven as top performers since their market launch in the United States at ConExpo 2020. The machines with proven technology have fully established themselves on the US market. The R 924 and R 945A feature higher engine power, a larger counterweight in conjunction with higher bucket capacities and increased digging and pulling forces – special characteristics of the Generation 8 crawler excavators compared to their predecessors.
The PR 766 G8 is also premiering in the US. The crawler dozer model, which further expands Liebherr’s Generation 8 fleet, comes with a High Drive, the proven and tested undercarriage for heavy mining applications. As the only crawler dozer with hydrostatic drive in the 50 t class, the PR 766 offers maximum efficiency, productivity and safety.
The concrete technology product segment is launching US sales of an exhibit that combines the most efficient technologies in a compact machine. The new 36 XXT truck mounted concrete pump comes equipped with the advantages of a new five-part folding boom with the Powerbloc drive unit and the semi-closed oil circuit.
The 36 XXT is a versatile machine including multiple comfort and safety enhancing factors, such as ergonomic access steps and simplified accessibility. An extremely compact assembly with no boom overhang at the rear ensures high manoeuvrability in confined spaces. A major highlight of the new 36 XXT is Liebherr’s newly developed “Powerbloc” pump drive unit that is characterized by the fact that all hydraulic switching and measuring elements are fully integrated.
The product range of Liebherr attachments is specifically designed and customised for the respective application and optimally configured for the machine size. Liebherr will demonstrate its fully automatic quick coupling system Solidlink during live shows in a dedicated demo area. Solidlink, formerly known as LIKFUIX, is a hydraulic quick coupler combined with an automatic hydraulic coupling system developed by Liebherr. Here, Liebherr will demonstrate how Solidlink allows both mechanical and hydraulic attachments to be changed quickly, efficiently and safely from the operator’s cab. Application possibilities and utilization of the machines can be increased by up to 90% with this solution.
For the first time in North America, Liebherr is presenting its new medium-sized wheel loaders, which are equipped with a wide range of digital assistance systems. With a significant increase in performance compared to the previous models, the new machines are prepared for demanding applications in various industries such as mining, recycling or the timber industry.
The portfolio of intelligent assistance systems for maximum reliability and safety includes, for example, active person detection with brake assist or the revised Skyview 360° camera system for an optimal all-round view even in poor visibility conditions. Moreover, Liebherr shows several large wheel loaders of the XPower series at the booth. Thanks to their power-split driveline, these wheel loaders are known for their tremendous fuel efficiency.
From the field of digitalisation, the components product segment will also be presenting, amongst others, its digital bearing clearance monitoring (BCM) for slewing bearings. The integrated wear measurement system enables optimum remote monitoring of the slewing bearings in various applications, such as mining and material handling or maritime applications. The BCM system can be used to measure bearing wear in axial and radial directions, as well as tilting clearance. These diagnostics ensure flexibility in measurement, reduced downtime and lower costs in maintenance.
