Liebherr launches comprehensive Crane Information Models (CIMs) for precise construction site planning over the coming months. These models make the work of architects and construction planners easier, as they allow key information regarding crane deployment to be considered early in the process, ensuring the right choice of crane for the job at hand. With decades of accumulated expertise, Liebherr’s Tower Crane Solutions, project department, also provides support with cost-effective construction site planning.

Intuitive operation for efficient load handling

Further improvements for more efficient load handling are also in the spotlight. The user interface of the Tower Crane Operating System (Tower Crane OS), for example, offers tailored menus, a wide choice of languages and relevant units of measurement to crane operators and assembly engineers to easily select the parameters most relevant to their work.

Users navigate their way through the streamlined menu structure via touchscreen. Display masks can be combined in different ways to maintain an overview during crane operation and scaling. The user-friendly display featured in several cranes ensures that training and familiarization times are reduced.

Site monitoring with transparent information

The right data is useful in evaluating the success of a construction project on its completion. Although every construction site is different, it is nevertheless possible to learn from processes for subsequent projects. This is where Liebherr’s digital “Site Monitoring” solution comes into play. Relevant crane data can be easily recorded, displayed and analyzed. Such information also provides site supervisors and construction planners with a reliable overview of efficiency and construction progress.

Liebherr supports architects, construction planners, supervisors and others working on site with its “Plan and Analyze” concept for optimum workflows. Digital construction planning and downstream analysis with transparent information play a decisive role in the success of tower crane operations. To this end, Liebherr offers customized solutions and tools to make the most of opportunities arising from digitalization.
