After a Year of Field Experience in Australia, the Liebherr R 9600 Hydraulic Mining Excavators Enters the Market.
Assistance Systems and on-board controls
The R 9600 is equipped with the Liebherr Assistance Systems. These advanced on-board applications are designed to support the operators in becoming more efficient through analytics and actionable insights from live data.
The Truck Loading Assistant helps the operator attain optimal productivity and efficiency. The system measures the instantaneous bucket payload and provides real-time information to the operator. The Truck Loading Assistant strategizes the number of passes required to achieve the target payload of the truck, and also provides a progressive update in achieving the strategy.
In addition, to provide operators and customers with productivity KPIs of the machine performance, the severity of the application and the operational conformance of the machine is realized in real-time on the machine.
The first Liebherr hydraulic excavator (HEX) Automation Product introduced to the Mining Industry is the Bucket Filling Assistant, an adaptive or semi-autonomous digging product which is available as an option for the backhoe version of machines.
It allows for easier and faster bucket filling with a consistent bucket fill factor, load after load even in the toughest digging conditions. As a result the overall productivity improves while the operator’s fatigue level is reduced.
