Lifting gear can be exchanged within a matter of minutes thanks to the simple modular structure. After selecting the software, the respective lifting gear can be used straightaway.

Safety in all its aspects.

Safety-relevant functions are distributed throughout the crane. On the machine and hardware-side, measures range from redundant angle senders and force measuring axes up to twin microprocessors.
On the software side, too, the crane can be upgraded with a wide range of systems that support safety. Among these are preventative systems to prevent overload, inclined lifting and swinging of the load. A wide range of machine and handling analysis modules enhance the offer.

Accurate statements regarding the life expectancy of a crane are only possible in conjunction with the frequency and type of application. Therefore, Liebherr assumes the toughest of conditions when designing the crane. Not only the crane structure but also all of the components meet the conditions for acceptance at the highest possible classification level.
