03/14/2023 Solidlink: New global brand name for fully automatic quick coupling system from Liebherr
- Liebherr’s LIKUFIX quick coupling system will be now known globally as Solidlink
- The LIKUFIX name will be retained in German and French-speaking regions
- The fully automatic quick coupling system ensures the efficient, safe changing of attachments from the operator’s cab
- Solidlink is compatible both with Liebherr machines and machines from other manufacturers
At Conexpo, Liebherr presents its quick coupling system Solidlink, previously known as LIKUFIX, as a part of its solutions presented during the machine demo show. Liebherr will now market its well-known LIKUFIX globally with the brand name Solidlink. The quick coupling system will retain the LIKUFIX brand name in German and French-speaking countries. The time-tested quick coupling system delivers maximum efficiency and safety for customers for changing attachments. Solidlink or LIKUFIX is suitable for use both with Liebherr products and with machines from other manufacturers.
The fully automatic coupling system enables attachments (both mechanical and hydraulic) to be changed easily, quickly and conveniently from the operator's cab at the touch of a button.
Liebherr's fully automatic quick coupling system, previously known as LIKUFIX, will now be known globally as Solidlink.
Liebherr's quick coupling system, which have been tried and tested for decades , deliver maximum efficiency, safety and flexibility. Almost any hydraulic or mechanical attachment can be changed conveniently, quickly and easily. In its global markets, Liebherr is now marketing its fully automatic quick coupling system, previously known as LIKUFIX, as "Solidlink".
New brand name, proven technical system
A major advantage of Liebherr quick coupling system is their versatile, manufacturer-independent application and combination options with a wide range of different earthmoving machines and attachments. “’Solidlink’ is a brand name which will be understood globally. We would like to use this to continue to establish our fully automatic quick coupling system in the future," explains Rudolf Arnold, Sales Director at Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH.
Efficient, safe and convenient attachment changing
The fully automatic Solidlink quick coupling system enables attachments to be changed easily and conveniently from the operator's cab at the touch of a button. It quickly and safely connects the machine to the attachment to form a powerful unit. “This message is also conveyed by the new brand name,” adds Rudolf Arnold, as he gets straight to the point in terms of the benefits: "Solidlink increases the machines' possible applications increasing its capacity by up to 90 %. The fully automatic quick coupling system therefore makes a significant contribution to both efficiency and safety on site."
Liebherr's quick coupling system also guarantees maximum safety due to multiple features. Solidlink is hydromechanically mounted to deliver perfect balance in all axes and angles. Because the attachment can be changed from the operator's cab, personnel are not in the danger zone during the change process. The proximity sensor also monitors the correct position of the attachment in the locking position. If the pins are extended during coupling without the attachment being connected to the quick coupler, the machine operator is alerted by a warning sound in the cab and a warning signal on the display. Furthermore, the two-hand control process means that the operator cannot lose control of the machine during the coupling process, making this process safer.
The massive strength of the system is due to a solid metal plate and recessed hydraulic couplings that prevent damage during the coupling process. An optional bracket on the coupling block also protects the hydraulic lines.
