Liebherr to showcase battery-powered equipment, hydrogen engine, and digital solutions at bauma 2022

Liebherr equipment on a generated construction site
Numerous new Liebherr products and developments in the areas of construction machines, cranes, material handling technology, mining, and components are on show.

The Liebherr booths at bauma 2022 offer space for more than 70 exhibits on the outdoor grounds. Numerous new products and developments in the areas of construction machines, cranes, material handling technology, mining, and components are on show. In addition, Liebherr will present the company's latest component developments. Interested parties can find out more about new products from the comprehensive program of Liebherr tool attachments, implements, and quick coupler systems. Products from Liebherr Concrete technology are exhibited at the main booth in the outdoor area as well as at an additional booth in Hall C1, where the focus is on mixing technology for precast plants.

Visitors also have the opportunity to learn about Liebherr's training and career entry opportunities on the outdoor grounds as well as in the ICM Foyer.

Liebherr's digitalization and drive technology

The product segment mobile and crawler cranes will present several digital products at bauma, including numerous applications in the new MyLiebherr customer portal such as the Crane Finder, the Crane Planner 2.0, the digital mobile crane licence, fleet management, and a new telemetrics application.

The T 274 mining truck will be on display featuring a demonstration of the Trolley Assist system.

In Liebherr's technology pavilion, visitors can also familiarize themselves with the latest products and services from the Liebherr Mining product portfolio, including the product segment's modular approach to emissions reduction.

In addition to a static machine exhibition, practical applications of current and future alternative drive concepts for earthmoving and material handling technology are presented to the audience at live shows taking place several times a day. At the main trade fair booth, Liebherr will also give further insights into and outlooks of future-oriented services and solutions for its earthmoving machines and material handlers.

The new LTC 1050-3.1 compact crane is equipped with an electric motor in addition to the conventional drive. This means the crane movements can also be executed using electricity. The new version of the compact 50-tonne machine helps reduce emissions and satisfies the requirements for operation on zero emission construction sites.

Liebherr will also present a new generation of stationary mixing plants at bauma. The new stationary mixing plant series, the Betomix and Mobilmix, can be combined from prefabricated modules, meaning that several predecessor series can be replaced. For customers, this means greater freedom in the configuration of the machines, shorter delivery times, faster assembly and a high level of availability of parts. Moreover, optimization of the drives reduces power consumption by up to 30 percent and increases the weighing accuracy so that up to 7.5 kg of cement can be saved per cubic metre of concrete.

In the area of digital assistance systems, the components product segment also presents the IoT complete solutions for increased data security in addition to the LiXplore camera monitor and panoramic systems. This includes the integrated, digital wear measurement system for optimal monitoring of large diameter bearings, the force sensor for hydraulic cylinders, as well as the digital condition monitoring for combustion engines.

In the area of alternative drive concepts, Liebherr Components will present a hydrogen engine, the H964, with high efficiency and very low NOx emissions with the same service life and maintenance intervals as diesel engines. The various injection solutions for hydrogen for medium and heavy-duty engines, as well as large engines with seven to 100-litre capacity, are also presented. The new developments also include the mobile energy storage system, which in future will ensure local zero-emission operation of electric or hybrid construction sites with ideal power density, efficiency, and quality.

Product highlights at bauma 2022

At bauma 2022 the earthmoving and material handling technology segments will present numerous new products at the main trade fair booth.

The portfolio of Liebherr tool attachments/implements and quick coupler systems is presented in a separate area in Hall B5 Stand 439.

Liebherr has extended its line of Fibre tower cranes. The luffing jib crane 258 HC-L 10/18 Fibre, the high-top crane 1188 EC-H 40 Fibre, as well as the flat-top cranes 520 EC-B 20 Fibre and 370 EC-B 16 Fibre, are new. Cranes with high-strength Fibre ropes offer even greater performance, which is particularly noticeable in large cranes. With the 195 HC-LH 6/12, Liebherr showcases its first hydraulic luffing jib crane in combination with a slim and climbing tower system. Liebherr is also working on future-oriented solutions in order to make crane driving even safer and more efficient. An excellent example is the teleoperation for tower cranes, which allows the machine to be controlled outside the crane cab.

Liebherr will present a new crawler crane: The LR 12500-1.0 with 2,500-tonne load-bearing capacity supplements the portfolio below the LR 13000. The rotating platforms and the main boom help set new Liebherr standards because the wide main boom gives the crane the stability of a power boom. Liebherr describes the new boom design as a high-performance boom. Despite the capacity of the new crawler crane and the size of the individual components, Liebherr has managed to create an ideal concept for efficient transport.

The new LTM 1110-5.2 combines old strengths and future-oriented innovations for greater safety and comfort.

Liebherr Mining will showcase its existing mining solutions at bauma 2022 and will also unveil a brand-new mid-size class hydraulic mining excavator.

Other highlights of Liebherr Components include the extension of the axial piston pump range with new rated sizes, the hybrid cylinder as part of the fibre composite portfolio, the online configurator for hydraulic cylinders, the combustion engine for off-road applications, the D976, which is compatible for operation with HVO, and more.

From the Unplugged series, Liebherr brings six new products from the areas of piling, drilling, and lifting to bauma 2022. The piling rigs LRH 100.1 unplugged and LRH 200 unplugged can work four to five hours in battery mode with a 200 kWh battery package. The charging of the machines is done using conventional construction site power. The battery pack can be upgraded to 400 kW/h for an operating time of eight to ten hours. The new battery-powered Unplugged versions are identical in terms of possible applications, weight, and transport, but have the added advantage of zero emissions. They can be used for all standard applications in the area of special civil engineering. The two crawler cranes LR 1130.1 unplugged and LR 1160.1 unplugged from Liebherr in Nenzing have the same performance data as the conventional version. Both are operated in a similar manner, which is very practical if the crane operators frequently change between different machines in a fleet.
