Terex Compact Germany GmbH and Hopf Kunststofftechnik GmbH
The construction machines at Terex Compact Germany GmbH set things in motion. The machines are used in road construction and mining as well as in quarries, horticulture and landscaping. The newest generation meets the highest demands – and not just technically. The icing on the cake: visual subtleties like the appealing design of the interior paneling.
More powerful at lower fuel consumption, temperature-controlled reversible fans, several independent auxiliary control circuits and simplified access to the service component – the 2014 generation of the Terex excavator is state-of-the-art, and clearly stands out from previous models. Even its exterior appearance is perfect. For example, the TC 125 compact crawler-excavator stands out with the attractive treatment of the interior paneling. "The days when construction machines had to be simply functional are definitively over," says Bodo Deuster, who checks the quality of the construction machines at Terex Compact Germany GmbH. "Our customers place a lot of emphasis on an appealing exterior. The overall appearance has to be just right." That’s why details like corners and transitions in the plastic components of the cabin interior had to be refined, even after testing the first TC 125 prototype. For this task, Terex asked for the support of Hopf Kunststofftechnik GmbH in Ottmarsheim in Württemberg, Germany.
