Haulotte has published a Building Information Modelling (BIM) library covering a number of its products to allow building and infrastructure project planners to digitally include its products in the planning and management of projects.
So far the company has created eight BIM product files which include a mast boom (Star 10), three scissor lifts (Optimum 8, Compact 12 DX and Compact 10 DX), three boom lifts (HT23 RTJ Pro, HA20 LE Pro and HA16 RTJ Pro) and a telehandler (HTL 4017).
Updated on a regular basis, each BIM data file contains structured and relevant product information, such as working height, outreach and lift capacity. The files are able to inform architects, engineers, and construction companies with the machines’ range, work envelop and possible configurations to help them determine the most suitable product for the project.
Haulotte product manager Clément Viaouët said: “By developing high quality Building Information Models, we remain at the forefront of digital technologies. This project is also in line with the company’s guideline: ‘the digital transformation’.”
Haulotte’s BIM library can be accessed at www.haulotte.com/en/bibliotheque-bim or downloaded from BIM content platform, BIMobject. The company has said it plans to expand the library to cover the full product line by the end of 2020.
