This April 8 to 14, Liebherr will give attendees of Bauma 2019 a unique chance to experience its latest innovations first-hand, ranging from construction machines to material handling, mining and components. Visitors can look forward to seeing many new technologies and other practical innovations at Liebherr's 14,000 m2 outdoor stand (809-813) and its indoor stand in hall A4, number 326. 

At Bauma 2019, Liebherr will present all the latest product developments and innovations from across the whole range of construction machines, material handling and mining, as well as components. The Group is confident that these innovations, along with its improved sales and service network, will lead to further growth. This is also reflected in the current demand for the Group's products and services.

According to prognoses for the current business year, the Liebherr Group will once again increase revenues, even surpassing the €10 billion-euro mark for the first time in the company's history. Drivers for growth in 2018 were construction machines and mining equipment, business areas which grew by around 10 percent in total. The two best-selling divisions, Earthmoving and Mobile Cranes, grew once again; the former experienced growth in the high single digits and the latter in the double-digit range. The sales increase in the Mining division was even more pronounced thanks to an uptick in the extraction industry. The Tower Cranes and Concrete Technology divisions also experienced growth.

With its overarching message, ‘Together. Now & Tomorrow', the Group will give attendees of the trade fair 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 for attendees.

 An overview of Liebherr's Bauma trade fair stands

Construction on Liebherr's stand on Bauma's outdoor terrain in Munich 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. With over 14,000 m2 of space, the open-air terrain (809-813) will once again 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.

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), guests 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. This makes 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, for example.

At Bauma 2019, Liebherr will debut a new series of Tower Cranes with fibre ropes which will be available for sale starting in April. This new, high-strength fibre 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. These 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 generation of earthmoving crawler excavators. During the first phase, seven new models will be released in the 22 to 45 tonne range. The new, eighth 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 should 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. One outstanding product is the new Liebherr Powerbloc drive unit for the pump system. All hydraulic switching and metering elements are fully integrated. This eliminates the need for many hydraulic lines and other parts.

At the fair, 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.

Putzmeister equipment aids in two record-setting continuous concrete pours within a month

A new record for the largest continuous concrete pour was set in Washington state for the foundation of the Lincoln Square South tower. However, it was short-lived, as less than a month later, the tower next to it beat the record.

Cambridge researchers developing self-healing concrete

Researchers at the University of Cambridge are using microencapsulation technologies developed by Dolomite Microfluidics to develop self-healing construction materials. As highlighted in recent BBC News broadcasts, the Department of Engineering's Geotechnical and Environmental Research Group is developing microcapsules containing ‘healing' agents – such as minerals, epoxy or polyurethane – which can be added to building materials to allow self-repair of small cracks which develop over time. Dr Livia Ribeiro de Souza, a postdoctoral researcher in the group, explained: "Many composite building materials used in the construction industry – such as concrete – suffer fatigue over time, developing small cracks. We are hoping to overcome this problem by adding microcapsules filled with ‘healing' agents to the concrete before it is used. The idea is that, as cracks begin to form, they rupture the microcapsules, releasing their payload and stabilizing the material."

GOMACO appoints Aggregate Equipment as new distributor for the Atlantic provinces

Road Dryer RD-1200 safely dries pavement in one pass for paving, surface treatments

The RD-1200XT pavement-drying unit from Greenville, South Carolina-based Road Dryer, LLC, quickly dries asphalt and concrete pavement, allowing crews to pave or apply surface treatments or striping after just one pass. The unit, which blows heated air up to 300° F directly downward through multiple nozzles, eliminates the risk of "flying objects," and allows traffic to flow in nearby lanes — reducing congestion caused by traffic restrictions. Available as a simple-to-operate trailer- or truck-mounted unit, the RD-1200XT can be adjusted for 8-ft to 12-ft (2.4m to 3.7m) drying widths. Because it dries pavement on demand, it provides flexibility for contractors and government agencies to meet timetables by minimizing delays from weather- and project-related wet conditions.
