Control screen of LHGearTec: unique and comfortable
The LHGearTec machine control system is the result of a comprehensive vision. With the aid of specialists from the fields of mathematics, computer science and application technology, Liebherr has succeeded in developing an innovative and unique control screen.
With the new control screen, operation of the gear cutting machine is easier and more convenient. Over the years, the demands not only on machines themselves but also their means of operation have changed. The habits of users have changed drastically by the use of smartphones and tablets. Liebherr has picked up on this and implemented the practices on an intuitive control screen.
Advantages of control screen
On the well laid out control screen any generation of user can quickly find out what is what. In this way, the work processes on Liebherr machines are faster and more efficient. Other advantages are:
- Multi-touch operation
- Graphic input support
- Inclusion of additional documentation (e.g. drawings, measurement graphs, instructions and work schedules)
Companies today are faced with tough challenges owing to high staff turnover and short "on-the-job training" times. The intelligently designed LHGearTec checks the inputs of the users. It is distinguished by its versatile means of individualisation. Functions can be easily added or deselected with the aid of controls.
Principle of operation of machine controls
The controls work in a similar way to apps on a smartphone and enable a wide range of user-defined settings. Applications that run in the background support the user with the input of data. Through online conformity checks with respective visualisation, input errors are prevented.
Back in the 90s, Liebherr was way ahead of its time with the introduction of Windows-based machine controls. With the intelligent LHGearTec control screen, another jump forward has been achieved.
