Liebherr to show LH 40 M and LH 60 C material handlers at Conexpo 2014

At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 in Las Vegas, running from March 4-8, Liebherr is presenting the LH 40 M mobile industrial handler and LH 60 C tracked industrial handler from its new series of material handling machines, at their booth #2155.

The Liebherr LH 40 M and LH 60 C are designed to combine comfort, performance and reliability to provide greater efficiency and low operating costs. Liebherr says these models deliver a new level of economy as the result of their high load capacities and superior reach. Specially developed for material handling, both machines also comply with the requirements of Tier 4i / stage IIIB emissions regulations.  

Both the LH 40 M and LH 60 C are equipped with the Liebherr Energy Recovery System (ERC) as standard. The additional hydraulic cylinder helps to increase the handling capacity while reducing fuel consumption. The machine features the Liebherr Power Efficiency system (LPE) which optimizes the interaction between the drive components and therefore increases efficiency and optimizes the engine’s power output.    

Also, this year for the first time at Conexpo, Liebherr is presenting the company’s various innovative components (mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive systems, common-rail fuel injection systems, etc.) in a dedicated pavilion within the Liebherr booth. The display includes the latest generation of Liebherr diesel engines, which comply with USA EPA Tier 4 final exhaust emission limits, set to come into effect in 2014.

Why invest money in an intelligent MRF (4.0)?

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.

When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
