Liebherr Announces Earnings Results for the Full Year of 2015; Provides Revenue Guidance for the Full Year of 2016

Liebherr announced earnings results for the full year of 2015. The company closed fiscal year 2015 on a record revenue of EUR 9.25 billion (USD 10 billion), which is 4.8% more than in the preceding year and as much as never before in the history of the company. The company expects the revenue to increase even more in 2016.

Liebherr Group Introduces New Medium Pressure Pump LH30VO

Liebherr Group has introduced a new medium pressure pump LH30VO. The medium pressure pump complements the existing product portfolio in the range of 280 bar nominal pressure and is suited for use in mobile machinery. The pump for all mobile applications with open circulation has a specific delivery rate of 45cm3 per rotation and is already available with two of the most common controls. The new medium pressure pump LH30VO for open circulation is distinguished by its compact and dynamic housing design. The design and production process were closely coordinated. High efficiency levels are thus possible with the use of new procedures in the rotary group area. Several patentable solutions contribute to an optimised production and assembly process. Not only current market requirements, but also experience in the high-pressure pump area, were taken into account during the development. Since the market launch, the LH30VO is fitted with two controls - an electric proportional pressure control with negative characteristic curve (DE) and a Load-Sensing control (LS-DA), i.e. a pressure cut-off or pressure restriction. The swash plate adjustment is extremely precise and robust. More controls are gradually being added, whose priority is determined by customer requirements. A proportional volume control (VE), a power control (LR) and an electronic pressure control with positive characteristic curve are envisaged. The pump was designed as a modular system right from the start. Larger and smaller sizes will be added to the currently available size of 45cm3 delivery volume for each rotation. Here Liebherr also responds flexibly to customer requirements. Further important parameters are, for example, the maximum speed of 3,000 revolutions per minute in the standard version. A 130% through-drive option is another notable highlight. Years of experience for applications in mobile machinery.

Liebherr Introduces New Energy Storage System

Liebherr Group has introduced the Liduro, its new in-house developed energy storage system. This new powerful and flexible system for electric drive systems is based on double layer capacitors. The compact, liquid-cooled complete system comprises all of the individual systems and assemblies needed, thereby making integration in an application significantly easier. As such, the new energy storage system from Liebherr is a cost effective and sustainable system for increasing the productivity of electric drive systems and facilities. "Liduro" is a complete system with 1.5MJ of energy, which enables the accumulation and supply of 100kW of power within 15 seconds with a reaction time of 500µs. Until now, the integration of energy storage units in new and existing mobile and stationary applications has required extensive measures in terms of development and installation. Aside from complicated mechanical implementation, it was necessary to bring together numerous individual systems, such as storage cells, DC/DC controllers, cooling and management. This, therefore, required a great deal of space and resulted in high costs. Thanks to the integration of all individual components and systems in one energy storage unit, considerable time can be saved along with material costs for system integration and installation. The "connect & use" system from Liebherr makes simple installation and operation possible. The user only has to make arrangements for the mechanical attachment and electrical wiring.
