Innovation the core theme for Doosan at bauma 2022Published 3/10, 2022 at 10:53
Doosan will be presenting what the company says will be an industry leading display of new machinery and digital technologies at it stand, FM.711/1, at the heart of the open air area middle construction and mining machinery section at bauma in October.
The Doosan stand, with its innovation centre, will be themed ‘Powered by Innovation’, will present the latest developments in the company’s ‘Concept-X’, ‘Xitecloud’ and ‘DoosanConnect’ systems. Other products to be shown include the world’s first ‘transparent bucket’ and the new DX225LC-7X - Doosan’s first ‘Smart’ crawler excavator. As well as the new DX225LC-7X, the array of products on the Doosan stand will show the increasing expansion at both ends of the product range for the first time.
At the top of the Doosan range will be the new DX1000LC-7 100t crawler excavator, the award winning DL580-7 wheel loader and a brand new 4x4 version of the Doosan DA45-7 articulated dump truck (ADT). At the compact end of the Doosan range, the company’s new 2t to 5t mini excavators and new 10t midi wheeled excavator will be shown for the first time alongside the new Doosan range of compact wheel loader models. Another bauma exclusive will be a preview of the first zero emission mini excavator from Doosan, the DX20Z-E, due to be launched in 2023.
Doosan will be demonstrating the latest version of Concept-X, said to be the world’s first unmanned automated and integrated control solution, introduced in 2019, for construction, quarrying and mining sites. XiteCloud is the first stage in commercialising Concept-X which maximises productivity by incorporating complex 3D drone construction surveys and earthwork calculations into a cloud platform, allowing them to be completed in just one to two days.
Doosan will also demonstrate the company’s DoosanConnect TMS fleet and asset management system, which is a mobile App available for both Apple and Android devices that now offers customers a new management system for Doosan construction equipment. The latest upgrade introduces additional services and expanded overall functionality, allowing the App to manage all processes from operation and maintenance to parts purchase through the one platform. The system is designed to increase productivity and efficiency at construction sites by reducing equipment management time and effort compared to offline and other solutions.
Doosan’s transparent bucket safety system will be shown for the first time. 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. Also being shown for the first time is the new DX225LC-7X - Doosan’s first smart crawler excavator which has been designed to help operators work faster and more efficiently. To facilitate this, the DX225LC-7X offers a number of exciting new features as standard, including full electric hydraulic (FEH) technology. As well as the FEH system, other standard features of the DX225LC-7X include integrated 2D machine guidance and machine control systems.
At bauma, Doosan will be premiering the new DX1000LC-7 Stage V compliant 100t crawler excavator, the largest excavator model ever manufactured by the company. Driven by what the company says is the most powerful engine in its class, the DX1000LC-7 is claimed by Doosan to have the highest hydraulic flow for this size of machine, providing high levels of performance and productivity, combined with lower fuel consumption and smoother controls.
Another world premiere for Doosan at bauma is the company’s first ADT. The new 4x4 version of the DA45-7 ADT is intended to challenge rigid dump trucks in the 40t class. With its 4x4 design, the new version of the DA45-7 has been designed to provide better handling on bad roads, smoother driving surfaces and steeper terrain than rigid dump trucks as well as providing a better turning radius than comparable rigid trucks.
