Liebherr Group Innovation on Show at MINExpo 2021
Liebherr will showcase its latest innovative equipment, technology, and services for the mining industry at MINExpo International® in Las Vegas, USA, from September 13–15, 2021. Covering a total area of more than 28,000 sq. ft (2,600m2), Liebherr booth #7627 will present advancements from its Mining, Mobile Cranes, and Components product segments.
Liebherr Mining is gearing up to showcase its new mining solutions portfolio at the world’s largest mining trade show, MINExpo International 2021.
At MINExpo 2021, Liebherr Mining will display the R 9150 Generation 7 (G7) 130t / 143 ton excavator, the next generation of excavator cab from the recently announced R 9600 G8, the PR 776 70t / 77 ton mining dozer with LiReCon teleoperation system, the newly introduced T 274 305t / 336 tons haul truck along with a display from Liebherr Components, and the LRT 1090-2.1 90t / 100 ton rough terrain crane from Liebherr Mobile Cranes. New developments and exciting announcements will be presented from Liebherr Mining’s new technology portfolio, as well as the pathway forward into low and zero emission mining.
Attendees will be able to interact with new technologies through a VR booth, and discover Liebherr’s technology at the daily masterclasses held with Liebherr experts. Fans and customers who cannot attend in person will not miss out; all exhibits, announcements, and showcases from the expo will also be delivered on Liebherr’s website and social media channels.
Liebherr will introduce three new excavators at MINExpo: the R 9150 Generation 7 (machine showcased on the booth), the R 9200 Generation 7, and the brand-new R 9600 Generation 8 (cabin showcased on the booth). These three machines establish the new naming strategy based on technology levels for Liebherr machines. This approach aims to achieve a common and long-term logic within the Earthmoving and Mining product ranges in a clear manner.
All three excavators are now equipped with the latest innovations including Liebherr Power Efficiency, Assistance Systems, and Bucket Filling Assistant.
LPE (Liebherr Power Efficiency) is a specific engine and hydraulic management system, which drastically reduces fuel consumption by up to 20%. Assistance Systems are advanced on-board applications designed to support the operator to become more efficient through analytics and actionable insights. Assistance Systems will be presented physically in the R 9600’s cabin and on tablets displayed on the booth. Visitors can also discover the Assistance Systems through an immersive experience in the VR (virtual reality) area. BFA (Bucket Filling Assistant) is the first automation product of the Liebherr hydraulic excavator portfolio, and allows the operator to realise the bucket filling process automatically.
Liebherr has recently extended its product offering with the T 274, a class-leading 305t / 336 tons haul truck. This new truck bridges the gap between the T 284 and T 264. Designed and adapted from years of experience in mining truck development, the T 274 is a true 305 tonne machine that provides fast cycle times, higher production rates, low fuel consumption, and a low cost per tonne. This new truck follows the same base design as the T 284, benefitting from its decades of field experience. Operators and technicians can expect to experience first-class comfort and safety while driving and servicing this truck. A wide range of options are available including the Liebherr Trolley Assist System and Liebherr Autonomy Kit.
Liebherr will also showcase its flagship mining dozer the PR 776 Litronic, which delivers best-in-class efficiency. The machine will be on display together with the new LiReCon Liebherr teleoperation system. LiReCon (Liebherr Remote Control) provides additional comfort and safety for operators in tough mining applications.
