Liebherr will introduce its three-stage slewing drives to the telehandler market following an agreement between the company’s components division and Magni Telescopic Handlers. The solution aims to allow roto telehandlers (RTH) machines to operate with improved precision and stability.
The system comes with a backlash-free drive of the type DAT 200, a hydraulic piston motor with high pressure and rotation speed as well as special breaks. Liebherr will schedule a series production for the second half of 2018. Liebherr will schedule the series production for the second half of 2018.
These drives are being used by Magini RTH machines that feature an operational height between 26 and 39 metres are equipped with drive solution.
Enrico Menozzi, head of sales for Drive Technology EU, said: “The optimised gear quality is backlash-free and offers higher precision in the positioning of loads. This helps our customer to place the boom exactly where it is needed.”
Eugenio Magni, product manager for Magni Telescopic Handlers, said: “As a manufacturer that always aims at equipping its machines with the most innovative, modern and reliable components, we are very proud to have such a co-operation with one of the word best manufacturers of machinery and components. This new slewing drive grants to our machines a much higher precision and smoothness during rotation as well as high precision when it stops. Indeed, the possibility to have components by such a manufacturer can only increase our quality on the market.”
Looking ahead, Liebherr plans to implement its drives in RTH 6.46 SH machines.
