Develon aims for maximum impact at Intermat 2024

Published 19/4 at 10:04

Develon will make its first appearance at the Intermat Exhibition from 24 to 27 April 2024 in Paris, France.

The Develon stand will feature a display of new machine and digital technologies. This includes the first demonstration of Develon’s Concept-X 2.0 remotely controlled (autonomous) construction equipment solution involving the DD100-CX autonomous dozer and DX225-CX autonomous crawler excavator.

Bringing both static display and demonstration sections together for the first time in the outside area of the Intermat show, the Develon stand is a two tier booth covering an area of 2,024 m². The stand has been designed around four pillars: ‘Carbon Reduction’, ‘Going Green’, ‘Compact’, and ‘Innovation’. The main focus will be centred around new innovative machines and technologies that support carbon reduction and wider sustainability to address the world climate crisis. 


Carbon Reduction 

In this section, and being premiered at Intermat, will be the DX20ZE mini excavator, the first mass produced electric powered excavator manufactured by Develon. This 2t excavator is said to combine  low noise and zero emissions with the features and performance enhancements that are found on the next generation DX-7 Series family of mini excavators. Alongside this will be the 14W-EREV electric concept vehicle. This electric wheeled excavator is designed with a regenerating drive system (‘eDrive’), advanced swing system (‘eSwing’) and ‘eWorking’ systems for maximum efficiency with zero emissions.

Completing this area of the display will be the DL250-FCEV (‘Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle’) which has a versatile, single platform design that allows it to be equipped with a fuel cell powerpack running on hydrogen but offers the ability to transition to a BEV (‘Battery Electric Vehicle’) by installing a battery pack.

Develon will also be showing a number of reduced emission solutions based on fuel saving technologies and the use of bio fuels such as HVO and GTL. These include the first appearance of the company’s Concept-X 2.0 DD100-CX cabless dozer and DX225-CX cabless crawler excavator. Another fuel saving system on show will be the 3D control being used to operate the Concept-X 2.0 excavator and dozer and for the DD130-7 dozer and DX85R-7 mini excavator.

Said to deliver fuel savings will be the ‘CVT’ transmission in Develon’s DL420CVT-7 wheel loader model, which will be on the demonstration area of the stand. This is equipped with the ‘Transparent Bucket’ safety system. Develon states that this is the first safety system of its type to provide a solution to prevent the danger of blind spots in front of the buckets of wheel loaders. An additional fuel saving feature offered by Develon is the ‘Virtual Bleed Off’ (VBO) hydraulic system (‘D-Ecopower’) being shown on the latest version of the DX530LC-7K 53t crawler excavator in the static display. Another fuel saving solution on show is ‘Full Electric Hydraulic’ (FEH) technology, which is effectively a VBO system without pilot pressure lines. The FEH system will be installed on the Concept-X 2.0 cabless excavator at Intermat.


Going Green

The Going Green pillar underpinning the Develon stand at Intermat showcases green solutions for customers. This is supported by the introduction of identification labels on machines, providing clear communication of their green credentials such as HVO (green diesel) compatibility; bio oil filled, etc. It also encompasses contamination control with biologic/organic oil provided from the assembly line. Also under this banner, the Develon stand will demonstrate the compatibility of the company’s machinery for use with HVO and gas to liquid (GTL) diesel.



A large area of the static display section will be dedicated to Develon’s new range of compact equipment, much of which will be shown for the first time at Intermat. This will include the new DTL35-7, the company’s first compact track loader model which is said to boast features designed to set it apart from its competitors. Visitors will also see Develon’s new DD130-7 dozer model for the first time, which has a range of features providing a productive fine grading solution for residential and light commercial construction projects.

New Develon mini excavators being shown for the first time at Intermat include the DX10Z-7 1.16t, DX17Z-7 1.85t, DX27Z-7 2.8t and DX85R-7 8t models. All are said to offer increased performance, optimum stability, additional versatility, enhanced operator comfort, controllability, durability, ease of maintenance and serviceability. Another compact machine is the DX100WR-7 10.7t wheeled mini excavator on the demonstration area which will be equipped with a tiltrotator. The display of compact equipment will also include the DL80TL-7 compact wheel loader, part of a five model range of 3.5t to 5t compact wheel loaders. 



The Innovation theme covers the new line ups of electric and hydrogen powered machines including the DX20ZE, DL250-FCEV and 14W-EREV machines and the Transparent Bucket system. It also covers digital technologies being displayed on screens and monitors in the main building on the stand such as the ‘Develon Smart Quarry’, ‘Develon DXP’ digital platform and Develon fleet management system. The Smart Quarry Solution is said to integrate all the business processes involved in running a quarry business, from order taking to sales using ICT technology to manage the site and increase productivity with minimal cost and time. 

Develon will also be promoting the latest version of the company’s fleet management wireless fleet monitoring system. Specifically designed for the Develon range, it is said to provide comprehensive information about machine performance in a dual mode (satellite, mobile network). The telematics system offers a web based fleet and asset management solution which is designed to provide a useful tool for managing the performance and security of machines and promoting preventative maintenance.
