Innovative and future-oriented

We are already thinking about tomorrow for you today in various research areas


Always one step ahead

With a view to the future, we are constantly working to further develop our hydraulic components with great innovative strength. In this way, we are making ourselves ready for different requirements of the future. In addition to sensor solutions and their efficient use in hydraulic cylinders, we are also researching alternative piston rod coatings. This is how we succeed in continuing to reliably support our customers in various applications.

Fibre composite technology

The targeted combination of carbon fibres and plastic creates an innovative material (CRP) whose mechanical properties can be specifically adapted to the requirements of the final products.

This technology allows the manufacturing of numerous products that show comparable or better properties than steel and offer significant advantages, especially in lightweight designs.

Reliable cylinder sensors

For the optimal control of complex hydraulic systems, we integrate a wide range of sensor technology into our hydraulic cylinders. This makes it possible to implement (partially) automated processes and procedures that increase the productivity of mobile machinery, among other things. Furthermore, we prepare our products for Industrie 4.0. The use of sensors is also essential for safety-critical applications.

Liebherr offers integrated limit switches and proximity switches for its cylinders. In addition to our hydraulic cylinder portfolio, systems for position transducers and position detection as well as force measurement are provided.

Small sensor, huge advantages

We continue research

New developments are also indispensable in many areas of hydraulic cylinder production. For example, we are looking at alternative piston rod coatings to ensure that our customers always have a versatile range of products.

Alternative Kolbenstangenbeschichtungen

Alternative piston rod coating

Did you already know that piston rod coatings are necessary for the production of hydraulic cylinders? These protect against corrosion and wear, among other things.

In order to be able to offer alternatives to the hard chrome coating variant used at Liebherr, we have been researching and developing in this area for several years. This development work ensures that we have a versatile range of products for the future. When it comes to the selection options, we place our greatest focus on the factors of economy and quality.
