LB 36: well tried and tested rotary drilling rig
With the LB 36 Liebherr also displays a well-established rotary drilling rig at the Bauma 2016. This rig is fitted with the BAT rotary drive, which was first presented three years ago, and offers a torque of 410kNm and can be individually configured depending on the type of application. The main advantages of the hydraulic drive manufactured by Liebherr are automated torque adjustment, continuous speed optimization and four electronically adjustable speed ranges. Further assets of this rotary drive are its simple structure, its low maintenance requirements and, above all, its exceptional efficiency.
The LB 36 weighs 115t and has been designed for drilling diameters of up to 3m and drilling depths of maximum 88m. The powerful Kelly winch with 40t line pull and the rope crowd system with 40t pull force offer a significant technical advantage. This provides the operator with maximum performance and reliability even with the most difficult soils and extreme operational conditions.
The Liebherr drilling rig convinces with the solid leader design, robust kinematics and a large range of possible applications. High stability is also provided thanks to the large footprint of the undercarriage. Similar to the other machines of the LB series the LB 36 is specially designed for Kelly drilling, continuous flight auger and double rotary drilling as well as soil mixing work.
Liebherr – a full-service provider in the deep foundation industry
In the field of deep foundation work Liebherr offers its customers not only numerous machines, but also a large number of services, enhancing efficiency on the jobsite. These include technical consultation in the planning stage, application consulting on the jobsite, recording, evaluation and transfer of machine data via LiDAT as well as the documentation and analysis of the processes on the jobsite via PDE/PDR.
A particular highlight is the new Liebherr simulators for deep foundation machinery. The operators can prepare for their future tasks in a virtual but realistic environment. This improves both the operator’s self-confidence as well as safety on the jobsite.
