Liebherr Displays Varied Range of Products
EC-B 5i Flat-Top crane model which is assembled at Liebherr's Pune plant has a maximum load capacity of 5,000 kg and can lift 1,300 kg at the jib end, up to a maximum working radius of 50 m. When the 85 EC-B 5i was developed, the emphasis was not only on the superstructure but also on the low-width 85 LC tower system, which has been optimally matched to the new crane and has new pin connectors among the many features that qualify it ideally for inner-city operation.
The 85 LC tower system consists of 11.7 m, 5.85 m or 3.9 m tower sections, with a tower base element 12.0 m long. The 3.9 m long climbing tower section is highly versatile, and can be used inside or outside the building. The 85 LC tower can climb to extreme heights when used outside the building. If other structures prevent this, the new climbing tower can be installed in an elevator shaft.
The 85 EC-B 5i, like all Liebherr Flat-Top Cranes, features Liebherr's "Connect and Work" erecting technology as well as the patented LiConnect jib connector and electrical connections for the drives and switchgear.
From the Liebherr Concrete technology division, the space-saving batching plant Compactmix 1.0 and top technology truck mixers for most economical concrete transport had made their present felt at the show. The compactly designed Compactmix 1.0 batching plant is capable of a maximum discharge output of 60 m³ of compacted concrete per hour. The space-saving overall concept and the flexible 180° truck mixer approach angle underneath the plant enables to position the mixer in a relatively small area. Despite the compact construction, all components are within easy and convenient reach. Most of the steel parts are zinc-coated, ensuring excellent corrosion protection and therefore a long working life.
The compact batching plant is equipped with the tried-and-tested Liebherr RIM 1.0 ring-pan mixer with 1 m3 rated capacity or 1,500 liters volume. The mixing system is available with either a mechanical or a hydraulic whirler (Agitator) system. Whirler systems are especially beneficial if there is a need for particularly high concrete quality or if additives or colouring agents are part of the mix for a homogenous mix. This is why the Compactmix 1.0 is also ideally suited to the prefab and concrete-products industry, where low slump is required.
At Excon, Liebherr presented two HTM 604+ truck mixers which have a capacity of 6 m3 with additional capacity of 0.5 m3 each. One HTM is a truck mixer with PTO drive mounted on a MAN 25:220 chassis. The other HTM has a slave engine drive and Ashok Leyland 2518 chassis.
Liebherr builds its own mixers in house to the highest quality standards, using special grade of steel with high wear resistance, low centre of gravity for good road dynamics. Liebherr machines are designed in such a way that safety is the priority without compromising on its quality. Last but not least, Liebherr mixers are noted for technical maturity, quality, and maximum customer benefit.
From its programme of material handlers, Liebherr exhibited the high-performance A 934 C Litronic which has an operating weight of approximately 37 t. The power unit is a robust Liebherr diesel engine with turbocharger and charge-air intercooler, which complies with Tier 3 / Stage IIIA limits. It is of 7,000 cc capacity with an engine output of 150 kW (204 hp) available at an engine speed of only 1800 min-1.
The A 934 C Litronic material handler has a wide support base with large pads for maximum stability. Depending on the working equipment, extremely heavy loads can be raised by up to 17 m and moved out to the same working radius.
Due to the "Vario Lift Plus" system, the desired working equipment can be pinned into position individually to suit the local operating situation and the nature of the load being handled. Attachment holes on the boom and slewing platform can be used to reposition the lifting cylinders for maximum load capacity within the same working range.
The spacious Liebherr cab provides distinctly more freedom of movement; the version exhibited at Excon is mounted on the hydraulic elevating cab mounting that is available as an optional extra. With the aid of the hydraulic elevating system the driver can select the most suitable position for an ideal view of the work area during materials handling.
The tried-and-trusted multi-tine grapples, wood grapples as well as clamshell grabs are essential tools for every Liebherr material handler. Due to their carefully designed geometry, Liebherr attachments are ideally matched to Liebherr machines – resulting in excellent loading behaviour and high productivity.
In addition to these products, Liebherr also displayed two models L 550 and L 580 of the expanded wheel loader product range for the Indian market. The wheel loaders are specially tailored to the needs of Indian customers while featuring time-tested Liebherr quality. Designed as robust standard machines with the familiar high performance and the low operating costs for which Liebherr is well-known, they comply with the "Bharat Stage III" (BSIII) emissions regulations required in India.
The L 550 wheel loader, weighing in at 16,800 kg, achieves a tipping load of 10,850 kg. The machine is equipped with a 4.5 m3 bucket. The wheel loader is driven by a 147 kW / 200 HP diesel engine and with its robust design, is ideal for use in the most challenging of conditions.
The L 580 achieves a tipping load of 17,650 kg and weighs in at an operating weight of 24,730 kg. The machine is equipped with a 5.5 m3 bucket and is driven by a 200 kW / 272 HP diesel engines.
