Members of the Liebherr family, Executive Management and Newport News city officials gathered last Friday, July 20th for a groundbreaking ceremony on site in Copeland Industrial Park to celebrate the construction of the new Liebherr USA,Co. headquarters.
Liebherr USA, Co. Construction Equipment division displayed its high performance wheel loader and compact crawler excavator at Waste Expo 2018 this week from April 24-26.
Liebherr, which has been manufacturing and operating in Newport News for over 48 years, has announced that it is investing $45 million in the expansion of its Newport News, Virginia, facility.
Liebherr USA, Co. Construction Equipment division served as the official sponsor of National Demolition Association's first Live DEMOlition event at the Demolition Austin 2018 trade show, held February 22-24, 2018 at the Austin Convention Center and Texas Disposal Systems. The Construction Equipment division showcased three machines: an R 936 Demolition Excavator, an LH 30 M Material Handler and an L 550 XPower Tier 4 Final Wheel Loader.
They cut everything to pieces: car bodies, steel girders, entire ships and aircrafts. Scrap shears are the choice when it comes to crushing iron and other metals. One of the premium manufacturers is Genesis GmbH, which produces scrap and demolition shears of different sizes in Memmingen (Southern Germany) for users in Europe, Asia and Africa. For the new mobile scrap shears, which has a high cutting force even with a comparatively small carrier, once again turned to Liebherr-Components Kirchdorf GmbH for its robust, compact and durable hydraulic cylinders.
Liebherr's new L538 Wheel Loader is Tier 4f/Stage IV emission regulations compliant and is one of the three models representing the new generation of mid-size loaders. During Conexpo, Liebherr showcased the new L 538 mid-size loader with a Z-bar linkage for standard applications. The L 538 has a respective tipping load of 20,945 lb and a bucket capacity of 3.4 yd³. The three models comprising the new generation of mid-size loaders are: the L 526, L 538 and L 546.
Liebherr's latest, the LH 40 M Industry material handler, is available both with a wheeled and a crawler undercarriage, and provides maximum handling capacity and low fuel consumption. The machine, recently shown at Conexpo 2017, is equipped with a straight boom measuring 28’ 3’’ ft in, a 19’ 8’’ ft in long stick with angled stick-end and a Liebherr four tine grapple, type GM 69 semi-closed tines with a capacity of 1.44 yd³. Other elements of the machine configuration are the hydraulic cab elevation as well as 4-point outriggers.
Material handlers for scrap processing applications, AKA scrap handlers, over the last decade have become one of the key pieces of equipment for metals and other material recyclers around the world. Very often, these machines are found to be excellent replacements for excavators that have traditionally been used by scrap, auto and other recyclers. While excavators are designed primarily for their intended use in earth moving and construction applications, dedicated material handlers are specifically designed for – as the name implies – handling materials. Of course, in the recycling industry loading, unloading, sorting, cutting, stockpiling and moving materials is central to the process.
During Conexpo Con/Agg 2017, from March 7-11, 2017, Liebherr will present more than 25 pieces of equipment from the company's extensive Material Handling, Earthmoving and Construction Equipment product ranges. The Liebherr outdoor booth will be located at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Gold lot G4637, covering 50,000 ft2, and will provide room for hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, material handlers, along with the company's crawler loaders and dozers, deep foundation equipment, tower cranes, mobile and crawler cranes as well as a concrete pump. Liebherr’s product range of components for the mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive systems will also be on display in the south hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth# S84230.
The use of waste from industrial processes and their re-use in carrying out new projects is nowadays a regular practice for many companies in many countries. Above all, this occurs with a view to the (necessary) creation of a model of sustainable development, founded on the reduction in the consumption of natural resources and the minimization of waste production.
