The Liebherr Group's Mining division supplies the international mining industry with large machines for the extraction of raw materials in surface mining environments. These activities are coordinated by the divisional controlling company Liebherr-Mining Equipment SAS in Colmar (France).
Specialized products and customized solutions
The loading and hauling equipment for raw material extraction is manufactured at two sites, i.e. Colmar (France) and Newport News, Virginia (USA). The product range currently includes eight large hydraulic excavators with operating weights of 100 to 800 tonnes and a power output up to 3,000kW. The grab capacity of these excavators is up to 47.5 m³. With their diesel-electric drivelines, the large dump trucks attain payloads of 220 and 360 tonnes.
State-of-the-art machines for maximum productivity
Thanks to numerous new developments, Liebherr supplies the most modern equipment series in this industry. The objective is to offer the most extensive range of products for excavators with an operating weight of more than 100 tonnes and dump trucks with a payload of 100 tonnes and more. The focal points of the development objectives in all equipment classes include high machine availability, technical reliability and maximum energy efficiency in the entire drive system. When used on-site, mining excavators and mining trucks from Liebherr achieve very high productivity rates since they can haul more tonnes per hour at minimum cost.
Round the clock availability a key factor for worldwide customer services and service
High-performance machines must be available around the clock in surface mining. Customer services therefore play a very important role in the mining industry. The Mining division continuously invests in the expansion of the service network through its own branches, in the supply of spare parts, component reconditioning and the qualification and training of service employees.
