15 February 2019
Goldhofer presents numerous innovations for the construction and heavy haulage industries
Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft will be present at this year's bauma with a broad portfolio of vehicles and some exciting new products for the construction and heavy haulage industries. The highlight of Goldhofer’s contribution to the trade show is the premiere of a groundbreaking innovation that will make heavy haulage simpler, more efficient and also more sustainable. The big secret will be revealed by member of the board Rainer Auerbacher at the Goldhofer exhibition booth on April 8, 2019. Other attractions will include further developments to established models and innovative transport systems. These include the »ARCUS« PK which was presented at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018, and Goldhofer’s intelligent solution for transporting wind turbine blades, the »VENTUM« in combination with »BLADEX«. In short, the Goldhofer booth will offer exhibition visitors an up-to-date outlook on the future of the heavy haulage industry and a first-hand insight into the company’s latest technical developments.
Following the revolutionary »MPA« technology (bauma 2013) and the innovative »ADDRIVE« system (bauma 2016), Goldhofer will this year again be presenting a technical innovation that will have a significant impact on the industry. The vehicle concept to be unveiled at the start of the trade show offers users a completely new standard of precision, safety and efficiency. For industry representatives and the press, the details will be revealed at the premiere of the new system at bauma on April 8.
In addition to this premiere, Goldhofer will be presenting an overview of its current extensive portfolio. That includes the TU 4 four-axle trailer for transporting construction machines weighing up to 31,8 tons, which comes with a new drawbar and improved ramp operation for enhanced safety and ease of working. Another exhibit will be the »ALLROUNDER« with its flexible loading concept, which makes it a high-performance all-rounder for construction site operations. Goldhofer stand visitors will also be able to take a look at the new STZ-PK 8 low-loader semitrailer unveiled at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 under the »ARCUS« label. With a unique steering system combining friction-steered and forced-steered pendular axles, the vehicle is a new benchmark in terms of steering performance at each extension length.
Visitors will also be able to see the further developed and enhanced versions of the vehicles that made their debut at bauma in 2013 and 2016. The »MPA« RM low-loader semitrailer developed on the basis of Goldhofer’s »MPA« technology, for example, comes with wheel recesses that combine virtually minimized loading height with optimum travel characteristics and a highly flexible deck for a wide variety of transport operations. Similarly, the latest generation of the last bauma highlight »ADDRIVE«, offers features that are sure to convince the transport industry in terms of performance. “In combination with the new generation of the FTV 500 blade transport device, we will give our customers a convincing presentation of the advantages of the »ADDRIVE« 3-in-1 system,” says Rainer Auerbacher. Another new product in the wind power sector is the »VENTUM«, a fivefold extendible flatbed semitrailer with a maximum length of 72 metres. In combination with the »BLADEX« blade tip lifting device, this constitutes a complete system that permits higher travel speeds even when transporting extremely long turbine blades and avoids time-consuming vehicle changes.
Needless to say, visitors to the Goldhofer booth will also find optimized versions of the THP modular heavy-duty trailers and the latest generation of the PST self-propelled modules. “In this segment, too, we are once again in a position to present new innovations and offer our customers added value for their vehicle fleets,” says a satisfied Rainer Auerbacher. Last but not least, visitors will also be able to admire the new »FAKTOR 5.5« high girder bridge. With its outstanding payload to deadweight ratio, it is the perfect solution for those customers who are looking especially for a lighter version of the remarkable »FAKTOR 5«.
