Liebherr introduces Solidlink


Liebherr has some big news. Its well-known, time-tested quick coupling system called LIKUFIX has a new brand name: ‘Solidlink’.

“‘Solidlink’ is a brand name which will be readily understood globally. We would like to use this to continue to establish our fully automatic quick coupling system in the future,” Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH sales director Rudolf Arnold said.

The system is suitable for use with Liebherr products and with machines from other manufacturers, and is designed to deliver maximum efficiency and safety for customers when changing attachments.

Tried and tested for decades, the system is constantly undergoing advanced development. It enables attachments (mechanical and hydraulic) to be changed easily, quickly and conveniently from the operator’s cab at the touch of a button, and quickly and safely connects the machine to the attachment to form a powerful unit.

This message is also conveyed by the new brand name and gets straight to the point in terms of the benefits, according to Arnold.

“Solidlink increases the machine’s possible applications, increasing its capacity by up to 90 per cent,” he said.

“The fully automatic quick-coupling system therefore makes a significant contribution to both efficiency and safety on-site.”

Liebherr’s system is also designed to deliver maximum safety thanks to a whole host of features, including hydromechanical mounting, to deliver a balance in all axes and degrees of freedom. It also features a proximity sensor that monitors the correct position of the attachment in the locking position.

In addition, the two-hand control process means the machine cannot operate out of control during the coupling process and the safety risks this can create can therefore be ruled out.

The system’s former name, LIKUFIX, will be retained in German and French-speaking regions.
