Projects that drive us
The dream of the printed airplane
A team of researchers in Lindenberg is already working on the technologies of tomorrow. Their activities revolve around a 3D printer and finest layers of titanium powder.To the story
The summit is not enough
Germany’s highest construction site on the summit of the Zugspitze – a challenging mission for the Liebherr crane during construction of the new Eibsee Cable Car. All details must be taken into account to safely assemble, operate and then dismantle this special crane on the Zugspitze.To the story
Deep-draft crawler crane
A blocked drain is not nice. Especially at the bottom of a 200-meter-deep reservoir. From here, ton after ton of debris and sediment have to be brought up to the surface. The solution, in the form of a hydro crawler crane, was developed and produced by Liebherr. We are proud of that.To the story
