An abstract of the products presented

One special highlight on BAU 2017 was the VSG 4000 KL 12 vacuum suction system for fitting glass fins up to 18m in height. The 800kg system is the most intelligent assembly solutions for specific construction conditions worldwide.

The company showed the MRK 55.0 mini crawler crane with a 3-axle overhead manipulator. This combination of systems enables panes of up to 600kg to be installed safely, even overhead or under overhangs.

Visitors could also experience the bestseller, the VSG 450 K, at BAU 2017. This vacuum suction system has a lifting capacity of 450kg and was fixed to a crane hook.

2016 anniversary presentation

2016 anniversary presentation

At its new headquarters, Heavydrive showcases all of its expertise gained from ten years of assembly experience.

To celebrate the ten-year anniversary, the new premises, and the innovative system from the Heavydrive fleet of equipment, around 100 guests experienced the big anniversary presentation in Tapfheim. The mayor, Karl Malz and the deputy district commissioner, Dr. Peter Thrul personally came to congratulate Guenter Uebelacker. The team and the guests partied into the night with live music and a splendid buffet.


Ultra-slim suction systems for assembly behind scaffolding

On this occasion the visitors were able to experience a selection of the various transport and assembly systems live.

The VSG 2000 KS vacuum suction system for assembly behind façade scaffolding was one of the new big players showcased for Heavydrive. Even with a suction area of just 2 x 2 metres, the system achieves a total lifting capacity of 2,000kg.

New headquarters in Tapfheim

The move to the new premises in Tapfheim now offers enough space (18,000 square metres) for the constantly growing fleet of equipment and the 16 employees. Another advantage of the location is the outstanding transport connection.

In-house trade fair 2015

Heavydrive offers diverse innovations in the glass assembly sector

At its in-house trade fair on Saturday 20 June 2015, Heavydrive GmbH exhibited its latest assembly and suction devices. The highlights of the fair at the Donauwoerth headquarters were the innovative systems for positioning particularly large and heavy panes, including the VSG 6000 K with its 6-tonne capacity and the VSG 3500 with its capacity of 3.5 tonnes.

The VSG Counterweight 7000 counterweight traverse was one of the highlights of this year’s in-house trade fair at Heavydrive. For the first time, this giant was officially shown ‘in action’ to an astounded audience. In direct combination with the high-performing VSG 6000 K vacuum suction system from Heavydrive which has a capacity of 6 tonnes, it is now possible to assemble glass panes of up to 20m!

The glass transport wagons HDL at
the booth

An abstract of the products presented

Heavydrive GmbH presented 16 different products at stand no. 124 in hall C2. Among the six innovations shown were the new models from the HDL product line. These glass transport wagons are also available with shock-absorbing pneumatic tyres, which are particularly suitable for transporting thick and heavy panes. The HDL AIR models are available in different versions that are suitable for the different conditions of any construction site.

Heavydrive GmbH demonstrated a solution for extremely tight application areas at BAU 2015: the very narrow ML 51.0 assembly lift in combination with the VSGU 450 KL overhead manipulator. This system was especially developed for indoor assembly of narrow conservatory panes up to 7 metres in length.

With the MRK 230, currently the most powerful mini crawler crane on the market in the world, and the VSG 3500 K, a vacuum suction system with a capacity of up to 3,500 tonnes, Heavydrive was once again able to demonstrate its power.
