Goldhofer innovations at Bauma: Another secret unveiled

Goldhofer innovations at Bauma: Another secret unveiled

Following the enormous success of its revolutionary »MPA technology« three years ago, Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft – as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of special transport vehicles – will again be unveiling an exciting innovation at Bauma 2016. The big secret will be revealed at stand FN 823/1, where Goldhofer will be offering an overview of its modern and forward-looking transport technology in a variety of vehicle configurations exhibited on over 1500 sq.m. of floor space. One of the attractions will be the new MPA-K series with its unique range of possible combinations.

The fact that the latest Goldhofer innovation is a kind of auxiliary drive for self-propelled heavy-duty modules is the only clue that CEO Stefan Fuchs is willing to provide in advance of this year’s Bauma. “We want to make it just as exciting as it was for the presentation of our MPA technology,” says Stefan Fuchs, who is convinced that Goldhofer will again attract keen attention at this year’s Bauma.

“Those who know Goldhofer also know that our innovations are tried and tested solutions,” says Stefan Fuchs and he continues: “That means customers benefit not only from our outstanding engineering but also in terms of greater flexibility and reliability as well as faster and easier mobilization – critical factors for economical transport operations.”

One of the eye-catchers at the Goldhofer stand will be a »Faktor 5« high girder bridge built for a customer in Mexico. Among other interesting features, it is configured with a PST/SL-E self-propelled module with hydrostatic drive. This colossus of a bridge is the eighth in the »Faktor 5« series (100 tons deadweight for a payload of 500 tons), which the Memmingen company introduced in 2013. “In the high-end segment of the heavy haulage industry, »Faktor 5« is now a household word,” says Stefan Fuchs; “it has become a generic term for a whole bridge category, and that is something we are very proud of.”

In the field of trailers and semitrailers, Goldhofer’s Bauma offering includes a 3-axle low-bed trailer from the Expert series, a 4-axle low-loader semitrailer with an intelligent wheel recess solution that makes it an allrounder for moving construction machinery, and a 10-axle combination from the STZ-P low-loader semitrailer series with pendular axle technology. The heavy-duty vehicle exhibits will include an FTV 300 blade transport device developed specially for transporting rotor blades for wind power plants, a 12-axle combination with various modules from the THP/SL family and a self-propelled module from the PST/ES-E series with hydraulic track width adjustment. All these exhibits are certain to once again draw the crowds.

Another attraction at the Goldhofer trade show stand will be the latest developments within the proven MPA system with its wide range of possible combinations. At Bauma, Goldhofer will be showing vehicles with pendular axles and MPA axles. With these combinations, Goldhofer will once again be demonstrating fast and flexible configuration of an MPA-K vehicle for economical and versatile fleet operation to a standard that should go without saying for every heavy haulage company.

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
