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.
