Goldhofer F8 N819/1

On show will be eight products, two of which will be new – a four axle low loader and a three axle tonne semi trailer. The four axle TU 4 is designed for lowcapacity deadweight and easy handling. The position of the centre of gravity has been improved and the rear end has been redesigned with a new ramp for simple and safe operation. “With this vehicle we will revolutionise the trailer market,” claims Bernhard Katzenschwanz, Goldhofer technical board member.

The other new Goldhofer is the three axle semi trailer type STN-LS 3. It is described by the manufacturer as a light, multi-functional low loader for transporting construction machines. It offers multiple transport possibilities within a gross combination length of 16.5 m.

Also on display will be the self-propelled modular transporter type PST-SLE. It has electronic multi-way steering giving each six-axle heavy duty module normal, diagonal, transverse and carousel steering.

Making up the remaining exhibits will be the following. A three-axle STZ-TL 3 drop deck semi trailer with optimisations that include a gooseneck with outer beams for the longest possible load, the compact construction of gooseneck and bogie enable more drop deck length.

The three axle semi trailer type STZ-VL 3 has advantages that include adaptability for a range of applications; the special drop deck can be converted into a crawler deck; and there is an integrated crawler/vessel recess in the bogie.

Visitors will also be able to see the six-axle STZ-L 6 semi trailer which has a load platform more than 12 m long and can be extended by another 16.5 m allowing transport of loads up to 30 m long.

Grammer A6.331

Two seats with integrated controls are new from Grammer. The Actimo Evolution has controls to provide tactile feedback and they are arranged on two levels; those more frequently used are at the top of the control stick. The seat automatically adjusts itself to driver's weight and position, and it incorporates a low-natural-frequency suspension system to dampen vibration.

The MSG97EAC/742 looks similar to the Evolution model, but it includes an electronic system that dynamically adjusts the seat's pneumatig suspension to further reduce vibration transmitted to the operator.

HBC-radiomatic F7.702/5

Making its world premiere will be the technos transmitter series. It is aimed at a range of applications in the construction industry. New versions of the spectrum 1 will also be highlighted.

Features of the new technos include the new iCON multifunction switch, which offers new possibilities for display configuration and navigation. When deciding on the basic form of the weight transmitter, the customer has the choice between joysticks and linear levers, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, from tower cranes to rapid assembly cranes or concrete pumps and loading cranes. It is designed to have a compact and robust housing and, with the soft lines of the rollover bars, to have operating comfort.

In addition to the technos product line, HBC-radiomatic is also presenting a new range of receivers for stationary and mobile applications in the construction sector. In addition, a completely new version of the spectrum 1 transmitter, which has been the standard belly box for many decades, will be on display. In future, spectrum 1 will have the option of a display and additional functions.

Hirschmann Automation and Control A5.207

Showcased will be electronic control and safety systems for mobile applications under the Hirschmann, PAT and Krüger brands. Highlights include a scalable crane controller based on a new console generation and new controllers from the iFLEX range. These include the low-cost compact series, which can be programmed with the application platform CoDeSys from 3S Software.

Also new is the load torque limiting system Hirschmann mentor QVGA, which enables graphic representation of all application-relevant data in a display. As a specialist for Industrial Ethernet, Hirschmann will also be demonstrating the use of this transmission protocol in communication between mobile controllers for the first time.

Novelties in the field of graphic operating and display panels include the 6.5 inch (165 mm) colour console expert compact (400 x 200 pixels, 256 colours) and the new Scalable Mobile Console family which is offered in a Basic, Professional and High-end version. Depending on the application, touch screens and rotating control wheels are used in addition to the classic input possibilities.

Itowa F8.801/1

New from this Spanish manufacturer of radio remote controls and mobile electronics is the SCI (Supervision and Control Interface), a new system for the control of all types of machinery or industrial process, the manufacturer says. Data can be managed and monitored from any computer via the Itowa web site using GPRS technology.

Also new are receivers compatible with the whole line of Itowa radio controls. “They incorporate the latest technological advances and new advantages such as: modularity, versatility, output through-connector, integrated antenna, and the possibility of magnetic fastening; as well as maintenance without tools.”

A new radio control will be on show with 16 double push-buttons, two selectors and two lateral auxiliaries on the transmitter. Another new remote is the Tunner, a new radio control that synthesizes both the basic features of the remote control for cranes and multiple industrial applications. It is the smallest and most complete equipment in the market, Itowa says.

Iveco C4.213

The truck and engine manufacturer will present five on-highway trucks aimed at the construction market. These will include a building materials 6x2x4 vehicle from the Stralis range that will be displayed as a platform truck for a loader crane, a Trakker AD 8x4x4 with a concrete mixer body, a Trakker AD 6x6 with 3-way tipper and a Trakker AT as a heavy duty tractor. Iveco is also planning to show its rigid dumper under its Astra brand.

Jaso F10.1003/4

Spanish tower crane manufacturer Jaso Equipos De Obras Y Construcciones says its “new model J600 saddle jib tower crane is the result of more than 30 years of experience manufacturing tower cranes.” The J600 is likened to a flat top tower crane in that the 4 m high tower head protrudes only 1.5 m over the highest point of the jib. It will be shown with its maximum free standing height of 86.4 m, on a 10 x 10 m cross base, and with maximum 80 m jib. Maximum capacity is 20 tonnes to 24 m radius and at 80 m capacity is 5.1 tonnes. It is designed for easy transport and all motions are by frequency converter drive.

Jost Cranes F11.1101/3

Completing the Jost range of flat top luffing jib tower cranes is the new JTL 68.4. It is designed for cost-effective transport and erection. The heaviest component is around 5 tonnes. On two falls of rope the maximum load is 4 tonnes and maximum hook height is 125 m. Maximum jib length is 40 m where the load is 1.5 tonnes.

New in the Jost flat top saddle jib range is the JT 132.8. As the smallest model it has a maximum load of 8 tonnes on four falls of rope, and a maximum 55 m jib with a capacity at jib-end of 1.7 tonnes. Free standing tower height is up to 60 m on the 1.38 m TH 15.2 mast.

Kobelco Cranes Europe F12.1202/2

Making its debut from Kobelco will be the 550 tonne capacity SL6000 lattice boom crawler crane. Its maximum boom and jib configuration with Super Heavy Lift (SHL) is 84 m main boom with 84 m luffing jib for a total of 170 m. Target applications in world markets include construction of power stations and petrochemical plants, ports, shipbuilding and wind turbine erection. The design is modular for easy transport, assembly and dismantling. At the show it will be in the colours of UK rental house Weldex.

Also on show will be the 80 tonne capacity BME800HD heavy duty, multi-purpose foundation crawler crane. An option on this model is the “two cranes in one” system where it can be used or hired out as an 80 tonner with full counterweight or as a 70 tonner with reduced counterweight and lift chart when the two carbody conter weights of 3.34 tonnes each between the crawlers are left off, making the crane easier to transport and reducing transport cost.

The 60 tonne capacity CKE600 multi-purpose crawler crane with optional tractor-type crawlers will also be on display. Like the 80 tonner above, the 60 has the “two cranes in one” system: a 60 tonner with full counterweight or as a 45 tonner with reduced counterweight and lifting chart when the rear counterweight of 6.2 tonnes is left off, making the crane easier to transport and reducing transport cost and operating weight (also convenient when working on a barge).

The final crane on show will be a 180 tonne capacity CKE1800. It is a multi-purpose crawler crane in the 180 tonne class and successor to the 7150.

Liebherr F8.807

Of the 75 Liebherr exhibits, around a third will be cranes (12 mobile, five crawler and nine tower cranes). In pride of place will be the LTM 11200-9.1. It is the first 1,200 tonne capacity mobile crane with a record 100 m telescopic boom. The nine axle giant is the most powerful telescopic crane in the world. Maximum boom and jib combination gives a lift height of 170 m. The Telematik boom consists of a base section and seven telescopic parts. A four-section “short” version is possible with the four inner sections dismounted. This allows a boom length of 55 m with a 3 m lattice head section.

Erection of two and three newmegawatt turbines is a target application.

Another mobile making its debut will be the 50 tonne LTM 1050-3.1, successor to the LTM 1045-3.1, of which almost 500 units have been built since 2002. At 38 m the telescopic boom is 4 m longer than the previous model and load capacities are an average of 12% higher. With its 16 m biparted swing-away jib, the LTM 1050-3.1 reaches a maximum hook height of 54 m. At 12 tonnes per axle the 36 tonne overall weight of the three axle crane includes the biparted swing away jib, 5.8 tonnes of ballast, 16.00 tyres, an eddy current brake, a 6 x 6 driveline and the hook block.

Dominating the Liebherr stand, if not the entire show, will be the 1,350 tonne capacity LR 11350 crawler crane. Maximum boom and jib combination length is 228 m (114 m main boom + 114 m luffing fly jib) for a maximum height under hook of 223 m. Maximum load capacity is achieved on 60 m of main boom with derrick and the ballast trailer set at a radius of 12 m. Maximum load moment of 22,748 tonne-metres is at 22 m radius. A primary design requirement was economical component transport so no section exceeds a transport width of 3.5 m or weighs more than 45 tonnes.

The new 300 tonne capacity LR 1300 lattice boom crawler crane fills a gap in the range between the LR 1280 and the LR 1350/1. Mobility is a primary feature, the manufacturer says, “making it suitable even as a ‘taxi construction-site operations.” Maximum boom and jib combination length is 172 m (59 m main boom + 113 m luffing jib). Using the high reach attachment variant, the jib can be extended to 120 m. A derrick attachment with ballast trailer is offered for heavy loads. Components of the disassembled LR 1300, which have a maximum transport width of 3 m, can be transported on low-cost standard low loaders and jib sections can be moved inside boom sections.

From the duty cycle range visitors will be able to see a new heavy duty version of the Liebherr HS 895 HD Litronic for tough applications such as dragline. It has a 670 kW (912 hp) 12 cylinder diesel engine and the dragline winch has a 45 tonne pulling force. This means greater performance and reduced wear. Electro-hydraulic, stepless proportional controls enable all functions to be operated simultaneously. Other applications include lifting, dynamic soil compaction and material handling with grapples.

New for dismantling tall tower cranes is the 200 DR 5-10 derrick crane. Maximum load moment is 200 tonne-metres and maximum radius is 25 m. As standard it can hoist components for tower cranes in the 300 tonne-metre class and larger, down from a height of 320 m. The dimensions and weights of all the parts of the new crane are designed to enable them to be dismantled with the aid of a small hoist and removed via lift shafts in buildings.

The new Liebherr 22 HM fast-erecting crane is a larger version of the 13 HM from 2002. Like the smaller version, it is aimed at users from the building trade, carpentry, timber construction and the prefab industry. The new undercarriage steering is for easier manoeuvring on tight construction sites. Maximum load capacity is 2,000 kg, maximum hook height is 33.4 m and maximum radius is 27 m where capacity is 700 kg. It can be towed with a drawbar or a fifth-wheel mount or at up to 80 km/h on a three axle truck.

Also on show will be models from the now complete EC-B series of 14 flat-top tower cranes from 50 to 200 tonne-metres. At the top is the 280 EC-B 12 Litronic, which is from the previous generation of Liebherr flat tops. More than 600 EC-B cranes have been dispatched since the launch in April 2006. Representing the range at Bauma will be a 71 EC-B 5 and the 200 EC-B 10 Litronic.

The tallest tower crane at the show will be the 630 EC-H with a hook height of 90 m. Look out for an all-new luffing jib tower crane in the HC-L series and for a surprise in the K-series of fast erecting tower cranes too. Talking of surprises, there should be one in the mobile crane range too.

Lincoln F8.806A/7

New and on show from this manufacturer of lubrication systems will be the HTL 201 miniature hydraulic tool lubricator and the PowerLuber 14.4 Volt battery operated grease gun. Making their Bauma debut will be the SL-V and SL-V XL high output injectors for Centro-Matic single-line systems.

Link-Belt Construction Equipment Company F12.1202/4

See the Link-Belt HTT8690 hydraulic telescopic four axle “truck terrain” crane. The 90 US ton (81.6 tonne) crane has a five section 42.7 m boom. Maximum tip height is 72.2 m with two 4.9 m lattice boom inserts and the 10.7 to 17.7 m bi-fold lattice jib.

Power is from a 445 hp (332 kW) six cylinder Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine driving through a ZF AS-tronic gearbox with 12 forward and two reverse speeds. Suspension is Raydan Air Link walking beam and the aluminium wheels have 445/65 R22.5 super single tyres. The carrier is 8 feet six inches (2.6 m) wide and for maximum manoeuvrability all axles are steered. The four steering modes are; independent front, independent rear, combination, and crab.

Manitowoc Crane Group F11.1105/1

Dominating the Manitowoc Crane Group display will be the Grove GTK1100, aimed at wind turbine erection, or working on industrial or city centre sites. Benefits of the unconventional design are when lifting at height or where set-up space is restricted, MCG says. Transport is on a maximum of five trailers. The GTK1100 has a multi-axle wheeled carrier and a luffing telescopic boom, connected by an 81 m, six-section telescopic mast. Four spreaders at the top of the mast attach to outriggers at the base for stability. Provisional data shows a capacity of more than 70 tonnes to a height of more than 120 m and a maximum lift height of more than 140 m.

Also prominent on the MCG display will be the Manitowoc Model 14000 lattice crawler crane. It was announced late last year and will be in iron for the first time at Bauma. The fully hydraulic 200 tonner offers a maximum boom of 86 m and a luffing jib up to 113.8 m. As a replacement for the Model 4100W, “The Model 14000 has excellent potential both globally and in Europe.” Several dozen orders are on the books and deliveries will begin mid-2007, MCG says.

From Grove, visitors will get first sight of the 100 tonne capacity GMK5095 all terrain with 60 m boom in seven sections. Maximum tip height is 83 m with the hydraulic luffing bi-fold swingaway. Like other Grove models it can operate as a crane for mobility or a ‘Maxi’ crane for maximum capacity. It is the second Grove with the new ergonomic carrier cab unveiled last year on the GMK4100. Also making its first public appearance will be the long boom version of that 100 tonner on four axles. Like the GMK5095 the GMK4100-L has a 60 m seven-section main boom and 83 m maximum tip height.

Representing cranes is the new 35 tonne capacity RT540CE. The Italian built 35 tonner has a 31 m four-section boom and an offsettable telescopic swing-away jib extends tip height to 47 m. Counterweight is 4.5 tonnes and there are dual-axis electric joysticks in the new all-steel cab. The RT540E is a 40 US ton capacity version available from MCG in Shady Grove, US.

Top slewing tower cranes from crane manufacturer Potain include a new pair of flat tops and a luffing jib model. The MDT 218 is the fourth and largest addition to the flat top MDT range. Available in 8 and 10 tonne versions, there are also two mast options, offering under hook heights of 55.7 m on a 1.6 m mast or 65.2 m on a 2 m mast. Maximum jib is 65 m and at 21 m radius capacity is 10 tonnes.

The other new flat top is the MCT 88. It is the first of its type in the MC range of city cranes, a series designed to be small, quick to erect, quick to transport, and take up little ground area on site. Like the larger MDT 218, the MCT 88 has potain's distinctive aerodynamic counter jib. Maximum capacity is 5 tonnes and at the end of the maximum 52 m jib it can lift 1.1 tonne.

Also on display will be the MR 295, latest luffing jib crane announced last year. A 60 m jib is the maximum for the three models available– H16, H20, and H25, which are 16, 20, and 25 tonnes capacity, respectively. Maximum load at jib-end is 2.8 tonnes on the H16. Mechanisms available include potain's 150 LCC hoisting winch and RVF 182 Optima + slewing mechanism.

New bottom slewing self erecting tower cranes are the Potain Igo T 70 and Igo MC 13. The former is the first of a new range that uses a telescopic tower. The height of the two-section telescopic tower on the Igo T 70 can be increased by adding sections for a working height between 20 and 32 m in 3 or 6 m increments. Maximum capacity is 4 tonnes and it is 1.3 tonnes at the maximum 40 m radius. The Igo MC 13 has a trailer axle so it can be towed at up to 25 km/h with full counterweight without exceeding 12 tonnes on the single rear axle. Erection time is less than 30 minutes, the manufacturer claims, maximum capacity is 1.8 tonnes and 0.6 tonnes can be lifted at the maximum 22m radius.

From the Crane Care division visitors will be able to see demonstrations of on line applications, including the new E-Training programs and GPX2, which allows dealers to enter quotes, place orders and check parts availability.

Méthocad A3.214/2

See the latest Méthocad software for tower crane siting, job planning and formwork. Version 8.1 has new modules for mobile cranes, site safety and virtual reality. The mobile crane module allows identification of the type of mobile crane needed to erect and dismantle the individual tower cranes on a job plan. The site safety module is for training and includes details of, for example, walkways, hand and guardrails. The virtual reality module allows interactive simulation as the user can manipulate objects in real time, like in a video game. It means that the three dimensional model can be used to check interference from obstructions, see if a slewing load will clear a building, etc. without having to find out during the job on site.

Michelin A6.427/526

Michelin will be launching a new electronic tyre monitoring system to measure pressure and temperature in real time. Initially the Michelin Earthmover Management System (MEMS) will be available for large dump trucks used in mining and will be rolled out to other applications later.

The system uses a transceiver fixed in the tyre to send information to a unit in the cab, which can pass information via GPRS to the site office. According to Michelin, the system will help ensure that tyres are kept in optimum condition to maximise service life and minimise downtime.

For all terrain cranes, Michelin offers the X-Crane AT tyre, which is designed to reduce vibration and braking distance. According to Michelin, the design of the tyre is split into two halves – the outer half has bigger tread blocks for stability, while the inner half has been designed to increase traction. The tyre can also be re-grooved to maximise service life.
