Innovation key to Doosan display at Bauma 2022
Manufacturer to present new industry-leading machine and digital technologies in Munich
DOOSAN will be presenting an industry leading display of new state-of-the-art machine and digital technologies at the Bauma 2022 show in Munich in October. The Doosan stand will be centred around a dedicated Innovation Centre and, under the theme ‘Powered by Innovation’, will present the latest developments in the company’s leading-edge Concept-X, Xitecloud, and DoosanCONNECT systems, together with other unique products such as 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 reveal the increasing expansion at both ends of the company’s product range for the first time at Bauma. At the top of the range, these will include the new 100-tonne DX1000LC-7 crawler excavator, the award-winning DL580-7 wheel loader, and a brand new 4x4 version of the Doosan DA45-7 articulated dumptruck (ADT).
At the compact end of the range, the company’s new 2- to 5-tonne mini-excavators and new 10-tonne 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, 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 commercializing Concept-X – it maximizes 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 be demonstrating the company’s DoosanCONNECT MS fleet and asset management system at Bauma. DoosanCONNECT is a mobile application available for both Apple and Android devices that now offers customers a new, all-in-one management system for Doosan construction equipment.
The latest upgrade to the DoosanCONNECT App introduces additional services and expanded overall functionality, allowing the App to manage all processes from operation and maintenance to parts purchase through this one platform. The system is designed to increase productivity and efficiency on site by reducing equipment management time and effort compared with off-line and other solutions.
Doosan’s unique ‘Transparent Bucket’ safety system will also be at Bauma for the first time. The Transparent Bucket is the first safety system of its type to provide a solution to prevent the danger of blind spots in front of a wheel loader bucket.
Being shown for the first time in the world at Bauma, the new DX225LC-7X – Doosan’s first ‘Smart’ crawler excavator – is designed to help operators work faster and more efficiently. To facilitate this, the DX225LC-7X offers several 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, as well as an E-Fence virtual wall.
Doosan will also be premiering the new 100-tonne DX1000LC-7 Stage V-compliant crawler excavator, the largest excavator model ever manufactured by the company. Driven by the most powerful engine in the 100-tonne class, the DX1000LC-7 is also said to have the highest hydraulic flow for this size of machine, providing best-in-class performance with higher productivity, lower fuel consumption, and smoother controls.
Another world premiere for Doosan at Bauma will be the company’s first 4x4 ADT. The new 4x4 version of the DA45-7 ADT is intended to challenge rigid dumptrucks in the 40-tonne class. With its 4x4 design, the new version of the DA45-7 is better at handling bad roads, smoother driving surfaces, and steeper terrain than rigid dumptrucks. The DA45-7 4x4 ADT also has a better turning radius than comparable rigid trucks.
Bauma will also provide a first look at selected models from Doosan’s next-generation, Stage V-compliant mini-excavators – the new 2.8-tonne DX27Z-7, 3.9-tonne DX35Z-7, 5.4-tonne DX50Z-7, and 5.7-tonne DX55R-7 – as well as a new-look midi wheeled excavator – the 10-tonne DX100W-7. Finally, Doosan will be premiering five new compact wheel loader models – the DL60-7, DL65-7, DL80-7, DL85-7, and DL80TL-7 – with operating weights from 3.5 tonnes to 5.0 tonnes.
