Liebherr to present its new mining solutions at MINExpo 2024

Liebherr says it will be sharing its latest news, products, services, and innovations for the mining sector at the world’s largest mining exhibition, MINExpo INTERNATIONAL®, this September, in Las Vegas. Visitors will experience over 2,777 m2 (over 29,000 ft2) of Liebherr exhibits at booth #7832.

Daily masterclasses and live demonstrations will take place at the Liebherr booth each day, showcasing the company’s latest product updates and providing insights into these technologies and services with the latest information from the field. In line with Liebherr’s motto for the event, ‘Your mining partner’, Liebherr will showcase its reliability as a partner for best-in-class equipment, decarbonisation solutions, cutting-edge technology, and service excellence for the mining industry.

Liebherr’s T 264 haul truck will be showcased on the Liebherr booth. The 240-t machine will be equipped with Liebherr’s latest technology, including the Trolley Assist System. Liebherr is also set to reveal the latest technology for the T 264 at an event during the exhibition.

To highlight Liebherr as a reliable partner for decarbonisation solutions, the booth will include the R 9400 E 350 t electric excavator. This machine is not only a testament to Liebherr’s more than 40 years’ experience in the development and manufacture of electric excavators, but also features some of the mining product segment’s latest innovations. This machine will be equipped with various new Liebherr Assistance Systems that will help to optimise day-to-day operations, as well as the company’s brand-new cable reel solution for increased manoeuvrability.

Liebherr’s PR 776 dozer will be a highlight on the booth so visitors can experience Liebherr’s best-in-class equipment. The 70 t dozer boasts the lowest hourly fuel burn – and therefore the lowest greenhouse gas emissions – in its class. Additionally, Liebherr’s Assistance Systems, designed to support operators and increase onsite productivity, will be installed on the PR 776.

Liebherr’s mobile and crawler crane product segment will present the LRT 1100-2.1 rough-terrain crane at this year’s MINExpo. This rough-terrain crane has outrigger monitors as standard that automatically detect the support status of the crane and save it to the crane’s controller. The standard VarioBase® variable support base of the crane further optimises safety by enhancing flexibility on site and increasing the crane’s lifting capacity. The LRT 1100-2.1 has a telescopic boom with Liebherr’s tried-and-tested telematic telescoping system for rough-terrain cranes, on which the various telescoping sections can be extended independently with a single cylinder and then pinned to the telescopic section above.

At Liebherr’s technology showcase, the OEM will share its range of latest innovations. In the decarbonisation space, the company has developed a variety of alternative drives and will showcase some of its brand-new solutions for its range of haul trucks for the first time at MINExpo 2024. Liebherr will also share its new approach and solutions for autonomous haulage and fleet management as well as its new Machine Guidance System.

During the exhibition, Liebherr will present its latest solutions for automating, operating, and maintaining Liebherr equipment. One such solution is LiReCon (Liebherr Remote Control), the teleoperations system for Liebherr dozers. Visitors can see how this remote system helps keep operators safe while increasing equipment uptime and productivity. While on the booth, visitors can also learn about Liebherr’s latest offerings in the digital service space for connecting site technicians to Liebherr experts and minimising equipment downtime in the process.

At this year’s MINExpo, Liebherr will also highlight its capabilities as a partner for service excellence with its range of service products for mining. Visitors will see how the OEM supports customers from initial equipment consultation – with Liebherr’s highly skilled Application Engineering team – right through to machine maintenance, customer support, and equipment upgrades.

Liebherr’s modular design approach to its machines ensures that today’s equipment is future-proofed for the technology of tomorrow. Liebherr’s existing machines can be repowered to run on Liebherr’s D98 series of engines, designed specifically for mining conditions, and can be converted from a diesel to an electric powertrain. This modularity is what enables Liebherr’s modular maintenance program, a service concept that minimises the downtime and risk associated with major component changeouts.

At the Innovation Lab, visitors will see Liebherr’s latest pioneering concepts and technologies for the future of mining. Liebherr’s components product segment will feature innovative technologies as the core of every powerful mining machine. Liebherr’s commitment to excellence and sustainability is demonstrated in every component on display – be it a hydrogen engine, a travel or a wheel drive, a CFRP hybrid hydraulic cylinder, an advanced slewing bearing with bearing clearance monitoring, or the remanufacturing program.

Another highlight in the Innovation Lab is a 55 kW compressor. Backed up by experience gathered during the last two decades and jointly developed by the Liebherr components and aerospace and transportation systems product segments, the high-speed compressor is driven by an electrical motor and features an air bearing. Such technology is an enabler for the deployment of fuel cell propulsion systems with only emissions of water and heat, which aids in the movement for more environmentally friendly transportation.
