Exciting field of work

The fact that Ricardo Dieing now works in the structural engineering department at Liebherr in Ehingen is in some ways thanks to Bauma. As a trained civil engineer, he first found his way to Bauma and the Liebherr booth in 2019, where he happened to get into conversation with a member of the human resources department. A short time later, the latter sent him suitable job offers for his profile and Dieing applied to work at Liebherr-Werk Ehingen GmbH. With success – because just six months after Bauma he had his first day at work. “For me, Liebherr has always been an attractive employer with an exciting field of work,” explains Dieing. Already during his studies at Biberach University, he came into contact with the Group through a factory tour in Biberach. That laid the foundation for him to want to work at Liebherr later on. “Liebherr has a big presence in the construction sector. That’s why everyone knows Liebherr and would like to work here,” says Dieing.

Fascination with cranes

The fact that he chose the Ehingen site is partly due to his area of responsibility, but above all to his fascination with the huge dimensions of mobile and especially crawler cranes. As a civil engineer, Dieing can work directly on the product that will be used later on the construction site. In doing so, he has two main tasks. He calculates components and load charts. This ensures that the individual components of a mobile or crawler crane meet the demands placed on them, comply with the load capacities and that the cranes are not overloaded. Based on his calculations, the crane control system then automatically limits the load so that the crane does not exceed its load limit – a major responsibility for him and his colleagues. “With products of this size, there are enormous forces at work and we are talking about huge payloads that have to be moved,” Dieing explains. “But that’s also what makes my job so appealing to me.” What he appreciates most about his day-to-day work is the versatility and the fact that he can constantly develop himself. “I have many colleagues who are very experienced and have been working in crane statics for a long time,” he says. “I can still learn a lot from them, but at the same time I don’t miss out on the fun in between.” Dieing was gradually introduced to his tasks. First, he calculated components that were already very advanced or of which he already had similar templates. After that, he received components for which he himself was responsible from the beginning and for which no load cases had yet been specified. “You have to approach the task in a completely different way,” Dieing explains. “But I could always rely on my colleagues and managers, who always had an open ear for my questions.”

Close to the products

When he visits the Liebherr booth at Bauma this year, he can marvel at products that he himself has worked on. For example, he calculated components for the LR 1700-1.0 crawler crane erected in Munich. He also worked on the new LR 12500-1.0. Only its hook is on display at Bauma, as the crawler crane with its maximum load capacity of 2,500 tonnes and a jib length of up to 168 metres is too large to be erected at the exhibition. So this year everything has come full circle for Dieing at Bauma. His conclusion after about three years in Ehingen: “I have never regretted it for a day since I started at Liebherr.”
