    Components for machinery and plant construction

    Liebherr components are used in a whole range of equipment in machinery and plant construction. Our portfolio offers solutions tailored to customer needs - from individual components to complete systems and services. We always bear application-specific requirements, such as high working speeds, small installation spaces and highest precision, in mind.

    Advantages of Liebherr components

    Liebherr electric motors of the KGF and KDF series are distinguished by compact dimensions and optimised cooling. In this way, they negate any doubt regarding the compatibility of customer-specific design and cost effectiveness.

    • Compact
      An innovative design with self-supporting housing makes it possible to construct motors with reduced volume. These can be integrated into any system without trouble.
    • Optimal cooling
      Our electric machines ranging from 7.5 to 650kW feature a wide range of different cooling options.
    • Economical
      High availability values during operation safeguard the efficiency of our machines and reduce total costs of ownership.
    • Resilient
      The winding and bearings in Liebherr electric motors are orientated around eliminating or resisting harmful side effects such as bearing currents and voltage spikes.
    • Compatibility
      Optimum compatibility with other Liebherr components, such as inverters or gearboxes, means that the system can be brought into operation quickly.
    • Durable
      The high availability of spare parts and a fast, obliging service guarantee a long service life of our electric motors.
    • Diverse
      The Liebherr product portfolio comprises axial piston units for the open circuit in the high and medium pressure range.
    • Durable
      Hydraulic motors from Liebherr are characterised by a favourable bearing load and a compact design. This ensures a particularly long service life.

    Specifically designed products

    • Axial piston pump DPVO
      The pumps with open circuit and inverse piston technology are designed especially for high pressure applications and can be used e.g. in presses, steel works or test benches. The hydraulic pumps impress with their large swing angle and high resistance to pressure. They offer a through-drive of 100 percent and can be combined with all conventional controllers.
    • LH30VO axial piston pump
      The medium pressure pump LH30VO is suitable for linear equipment movements, e.g. during manufacture of injection moulded parts. With our experience from the high-pressure range, the pump was designed for a long service life. Optimised production processes make it very cost effective.
    • Durable
      The sturdy design of the Liebherr hydraulic cylinders ensures a long service life even with high working speeds.
    • Customer-specific
      Experienced engineers design our hydraulic cylinders according to customer-specific needs and orientate themselves around the requirements of each application.
    • Low friction
      Thanks to the use of low friction sealing systems, our cylinders ensure very smooth running and high energy efficiency of the hydraulic system.

    Specifically designed products

    • Cylinder sensors
      Sensor components are ideally matched to our cylinders. In this way, they enable optimum control of complex hydraulic systems.
