A new dimension in energy efficiency – the SENNEBOGEN 8130 EQ demonstrates its credentials as a balance material handling machine through its energy efficiency and excellent value for money. The latest product development from SENNEBOGEN is consistently balanced in any situation and guarantees minimal energy and running costs in daily use, both on the scrapyard and in port material handling, thanks to the classic lever principle behaviour.
"With the SENNEBOGEN 8130 EQ balance material handling machine, we are reaching a new dimension in terms of energy efficiency." The Managing Director Erich Sennebogen is delighted with the new machine design, which SENNEBOGEN is already offering for heavy duty operation in material handling. In contrast to conventional hydraulic material handling machines, SENNEBOGEN is introducing a new machine to the market, in the form of the 8130 EQ, that not only sets new standards with regards to performance and handling but also enables savings of up to 75% in energy and running costs compared with conventional diesel motor drive concepts.
The SENNEBOGEN 8130 EQ with electric motor operates environmentally friendly and efficient, both in scrap handling and port material handling. An adjustable counterweight means that the machine always remains perfectly balanced in any position and the centre of gravity stays central. This EQ (equilibrium) principle enables the machine to constantly remain balanced. Thanks to the directly linked counterweight, minimal energy usage provides sufficient drive even for large reaches and high loads.
The way it works is simple. The whole machine can be controlled using just two cylinders. A rar running parallel to the boom connects the jib to the rear counterweight and ensures effective transmission of power. During every operating movement, the counterweight is held in balance in a similar way to classic lever principle behaviour. In this way, it takes almost no energy at all to move the machine. Even for heavy loads and high reaches, only the loads attached must be moved and driven - an enormous saving in terms of effort and energy. Savings in running costs and energy costs of up to 50% can be achieved just by using this sophisticated balance concept.
Used in combination with the electrohydraulic drive concept, further considerable savings are possible. As an electric machine, the 8130 EQ uses just 25% of the energy required by similar diesel-powered machinery.
There are even more advantages to the electric motor, including low energy consumption, low additional costs and above all, the motor operates extremely quietly and smoothly without refuelling. The 8130 EQ's 400 volt electric motor generates a powerful 130 kW, while short hydraulic connection and reliable control technology allow the power to get to where it is needed.
The new SENNEBOGEN 8130 EQ is particularly well suited for use in port material handling and on the scrapyard as well as for logging. The balance technology shows off its strengths in all situations where bulk goods or large quantities of scrap need to be handled cost-effectively. With a bearing load of 5 t and a reach of 27 m, a stationary machine can easily operate in an area of around 2,300 sq m. Additional material can be piled up to a height of 25 m. Several working steps can still be carried out with optimum logistics from a central position. A clear view is always guaranteed thanks to the pylon structure and the raised cab position.
In addition, the machinery guarantees the highest level of efficiency and productive workflows in port material handling. From ships to handysize-class vessels, the SENNEBOGEN 8130 can unload goods up to a depth of 8 m and can bear a load of up to 10 t.
Optimal ease of use and convenient maintenance safeguard the sophisticated machine design. Centrally accessible monitoring and maintenance points guarantee quick and easy inspection of the entire hydraulic system. The Power Pack that can be accessed inside offers the best possible access to the engine and the control technology in any weather conditions - that's easy maintenance at its best. All drive and control components are kept together in a large engine compartment. The clearly arranged design, simple maintenance and understandable technology prove their worth in daily use. With 60 years of experience, SENNEBOGEN guarantees excellent reliability and the best in safety and durability. A rapid supply of spare parts and premium maintenance are ensured thanks to the use of proven standard components and the easy-to-reach positioning of both cylinders.
SENNEBOGEN represents individual, customer-specific solutions and thanks to the modular design of its machines, a wide range of equipment options is always possible. From stationary underframes, crawler chassis or rail solutions to pontoon constructions, a wide range of solutions are possible, all tailored to the customer's requirements. The machine is also available as an option with a 151/164 kW Cummins diesel engine. In cabin on the 8130, the driver not only has a clear view, but thanks to the SENNEBOGEN SENCON Control System, all the adjustments can be made centrally, current measurement readings can be taken and the driver is able to fine tune things himself using the clear display. The proven SENNEBOGEN maXcab industrial comfort cabin allows the driver to get the best all-round view - an important safety factor - thanks to end-to-end tilted bullet proof glass and floor windows.
In addition to the existing comfort cabin, the SENNEBOGEN 8130 will also be available with an all-new cabin design for the very first time. The new SENNEBOGEN Mastercab offers an outstanding feeling of spaciousness, the clearest view and the highest level of comfort. The resiliently mounted spacious harbour cab is impressive due to its large floor window and excellent all-round view - a valuable advantage for safety, for example when unloading ships.
The interior, complete with air-suspended seat, complies with the most recent ergonomic standards and certainly impresses with its staggering interior dimensions. In addition to sliding windows and air conditioning, the Mastercab is the largest cabin in this machine class and is the first to be fitted with a spare foldaway seat. This means there is space for an instructor to sit for training purposes, where he can take an active role in instructing the driver. In comparison to the previous maXcab industrial cab, the optional cab is around 50% wider and 25% higher. For the driver this means the space has been almost doubled to over 6 cubic metres. Various storage solutions complete the top of its class interior in the new Mastercab and make it the perfect cab for demanding material handling. In the future, the Mastercab will be available as an option on SENNEBOGEN machines from the 850 model upwards.
