        • Gas engines

        • The range of Liebherr gas engines is similar to that of Liebherr diesel engines. The series based on the diesel engines of emission standard 3B is noted for being a closed system. The compressor inlet and turbine exit for the gas form the interfaces for the respective application. The charge air cooler, control flap and spark plugs are therefore already included in the standard equipment. The customer receives a compact complete system which is ready to install. Gas-specific components such as gas mixer, ignition system and controller are not integrated into the engine.

          Many features of the successful Liebherr diesel engines have been adopted for the gas engines. These include, for example, the steel pistons and the use of four valves per cylinder which increase air volume flow and minimise pressure losses. This allows high ignition pressures and, as a result, yields a high engine power density as well as a high efficiency of over 42%.

          Application areas for the Liebherr gas engines are primarily small combined heat and power units, pump stations, gen sets and other stationary applications which are powered by natural gas, biogas, landfill gas or other gases.

                                • Planetary plug-in gearboxes
                                   

                                • Planetary plug-in gearboxes are intended for installation in rope winches, and specifically suit customers who require rope winch drums and frames separately, or manufacture them themselves. The standard gearboxes designed for horizontal installation can be adapted for drives powered by both electric and hydraulic motors. The torque is transmitted to the rope drum by the internal gear wheels.
                                • Compact and heavy duty rope winches

                                • Compact and heavy duty rope winches are mainly used for small to medium loads. A planetary gearbox integrated into the rope drum transfers a torque of between 6000 and 800,000 Nm via the internal gear wheel onto the rope drum.
                                • Gear ring rope winches
                                   

                                • Gear ring rope winches are used for high to extremely high rope pull forces, such as those that occur with heavy-duty crawler cranes, deep-sea winches and other specialist applications. Output torques of up to 2500 Nm are handled most economically by using a gear ring with several external slewing drives, which can be driven electrically or hydraulically. The redundancy of the slewing drives offers high operational safety for the rope winch.
                                • Special gearboxes
                                   

                                • Liebherr has always offered gearboxes designed for specific applications. Over time, many drive variations have been developed, for example specialist drives for drilling rigs, stationary concrete mixing plants, chain drives and other designs.
                              • Electric motors

                              • Liebherr electric motors are compact, robust and maintenance-free three-phase squirrel cage motors with high power density. Down to the smallest size - round model BG 132 - all motors are designed with a self-supporting stator core, which supports the housing in addition to the electrical functions.
                                The engines have been specially designed for operation in variable-speed drives with frequency converters and also for highly dynamic applications. They are designed for a constant rated torque from standstill to the rated speed and in addition for constant power.
                                The electrical design and the construction principle offers a low volume-performance ratio in combination with the effective cooling. The compact design means low noise level and very quiet operation.

                                • Large diameter bearings

                                • The Liebherr group is one of the leading global manufacturers of large diameter bearings and has almost 60 years experience in the development, design and manufacture of ball bearing and roller bearing slewing rings. Since company founder Hans Liebherr developed the first ball bearing slewing ring for cranes in 1955, approximately 300,000 large diameter bearings have been produced for use worldwide in various applications.
                                  Customers particularly value the large product range, the application-specific engineering and the outstanding quality of large diameter bearings by Liebherr. The large diameter bearings are produced in the factories at Biberach an der Riss, Germany, and Monterrey, Mexico, in various dimensions and models in accordance with customer specifications.
                                    • Ball bearing slewing rings

                                    • Ball bearing slewing rings by Liebherr are available in single- and double-row models, both with external or internal gear as well as without gearing. The ball bearing slewing rings are designed as four-point bearings which are characterised by four defined points of contact per rolling element, through which bilateral axial and radial forces and thus also a tilting moment can be transferred. Thanks to their simple construction, four-point bearings are an efficient solution for various applications with small to medium-sized loads.
                                      Polymer spacers are conventionally used as intermediate pieces between the rolling elements, however there are bearing models with steel or brass cages.
                                    • Roller bearing slewing rings

                                    • Liebherr roller bearing slewing rings are suitable for medium to high loads. They are designed in a triple-row model with two axial and one radial roller raceway as standard, but other variations are also possible depending on the application. The linear load transfer allows them to transfer much higher forces in the same installation space compared to four-point bearings and makes them particularly suitable for larger diameters. Roller bearing slewing rings have a high power density, but tend to place higher demands on the stiffness of the adjacent structure.
                                      Roller bearing slewing rings by Liebherr can be supplied in all gearing versions. Typical applications are mining excavators or large crawler cranes, offshore and mobile harbour cranes. Roller bearings by Liebherr have also been tried and tested in drilling rigs and deep foundation machines.
                                    • Special rings

                                    • Four-point and roller bearing slewing rings with special adjacent structures are included in the category of special rings. Roller bearing slewing rings with bolt connections or bayonet connections are available for simplified disassembly of uppercarriage and undercarriage of construction machines and cranes.
                                      The raceway systems of ball and roller bearing slewing rings can also be designed for specific applications. For example, combined roller-ball bearing slewing rings can be supplied. Slewing connections are also available as ball bearings with adjusted contact angle for large radial loads. Angular contact roller bearings, which act as bogie wheels for a heavy duty crane, have also been manufactured in Biberach.
