Goldhofer to Present New Products, Innovations at Bauma

February 13, 2019 - Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft will present a broad portfolio of vehicles and some exciting new products at the Bauma trade show in Munich, Germany, April 8-14.

The highlight of Goldhofer’s exhibit is the launching of a groundbreaking innovation that will make heavy haulage simpler, more efficient, and more sustainable.

The big secret will be revealed by member of the board Rainer Auerbacher at the Goldhofer exhibition booth, FN.823, on April 8, 2019.

Other attractions will include new developments in established models and innovative transport systems.

They include the Arcus PK which was shown at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 show, 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 concept offers a completely new standard of precision, safety and efficiency.

In addition to this premiere, Goldhofer will be presenting an overview of its current portfolio. That includes the TU 4 four-axle trailer for transporting construction machines weighing up to 31,8 metric tons (35 U.S. tons), which comes with a new drawbar and improved ramp operation for enhanced safety and ease of working.

Another exhibit will be the Allrounder, whose flexible loading makes it a high-performance all-rounder for construction site operations.

Goldhofer’s stand will also feature the new STZ-PK 8 low-loader semitrailer unveiled at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 under the Arcus label. A unique steering system plus combined friction-steered and forced-steered pendular axles make the vehicle a new benchmark for steering performance.

Visitors will also see further developed versions of vehicles that made debuted at Bauma 2013 and 2016.

The MPA RM low-loader semitrailer now 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, Addrive will show its newest features. “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 five-fold extendible flatbed semitrailer with a maximum length of 72 m (236.2’). In combination with the Bladex blade-tip lifting device, Ventum constitutes a complete system that avoids time-consuming vehicle changes and permits higher travel speeds even when transporting extremely long turbine blades.

Goldhofer’s booth will also display 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 innovations and offer our customers added value for their vehicle fleets,” says Auerbacher.

 

Last, visitors will see the new Faktor 5.5 high girder bridge, whose outstanding payload-to-deadweight ratio makes it beneficial for customers looking for a lighter version of the Faktor 5.
