Priorities in the construction, off-highway and agriculture sectors seem to focus on longevity, energy efficiency and maximizing speed and torque. Every press conference and booth visit so far at IFPE and ConExpo support this claim. Components need to meet strict environmental guidelines while maximizing power. Success in these markets depends on condition monitoring technologies, quick-change components and the ability to meet power density requirements.
Schaeffler Lifetime Solutions
Minimizing unplanned downtime through predictive maintenance is one of the primary challenges facing companies in the construction and aggregates industries. Schaeffler Lifetime Solutions is the company’s business unit dedicated to offering a complete range of products and service solutions focused on predictive, preventive solutions.
Schaeffler Lifetime Solutions innovations on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 include OPTIME, a wireless condition monitoring solution, Concept1 single-point automatic lubricator, as well as OPTIME C1 – a “smart” lubricator that combines all the benefits of Schaeffler’s Concept1 automatic lubricators with OPTIME condition monitoring technology.
Liebherr Quick Coupling System
Liebherr presents its quick coupling system Solidlink, previously known as LIKUFIX, as a part of its solutions presented during the machine demo show. Liebherr will now market its well-known LIKUFIX globally with the brand name Solidlink. The quick coupling system will retain the LIKUFIX brand name in German and French-speaking countries. This time-tested quick coupling system delivers maximum efficiency and safety for customers for changing attachments. Solidlink or LIKUFIX is suitable for use with Liebherr products and with machines from other manufacturers. Liebherr's quick coupling system, which have been tried and tested for decades, delivers maximum efficiency, safety and flexibility. Almost any hydraulic or mechanical attachment can be changed conveniently, quickly and easily.
Bosch Rexroth & Hägglunds Go Quantum
Hägglunds is entering a daring space with the Hägglunds Quantum range of hydraulic motors. The range does away with established barriers, combining torque and speed with previously unthinkable efficiency. For direct drives in heavy-duty applications, it creates a powerful new reality.
The Hägglunds Quantum range shapes proven strengths into an extraordinary new performance curve. It offers a top speed of over 150 rpm, yet it provides a sustainable maximum torque of more than 350 kNm. At corner power, where the two extremes meet, users can achieve a mind-bending 3 MW — without sacrificing compactness or efficiency.
“The Hägglunds Quantum range rewrites the rules of power density, especially when it comes to efficiency at higher speeds,” said Wolfram Ulrich, vice president of sales, Hägglunds. “By stretching the limits so far beyond previous solutions, it introduces possibilities for greener operation, mobile applications and more.”
