During the last bauma, many were not able to attend the show due to flights ban for few days because of volcano ash that engulfed European skylines. So, this time it is expected a record-breaking gathering which has already been testified by the surging number of exhibitors in the waiting list. The demand for exhibition space is going up at an alarming pace and considering that 75,000 sqm of exhibition space has already been increased but still large numbers of exhibitors are in the waiting list.
bauma presents an absolutely comprehensive range of exhibiting space wherein each individual product group is represented clearly by the structured four theme-oriented sectors including Construction Sites, Mining, Extraction and Processing of Raw Materials, Production of Building materials and Components, and service suppliers.
The growth in the construction market worldwide is giving rise to a surge in demand for concrete products, concrete pipes and shafts as well as precast components. This demand is in turn boosting developments among the manufacturers of the machinery and plant that is used to produce these components. At bauma, a whole range of new products made of concrete and other materials will be on show at the booths of systems suppliers and components specialists, across the spectrum from newcomers to market leaders.
As Formwork and scaffolding are an essential part of building and construction, and the systems on offer are already very highly developed and efficient. Yet, again and again, the manufacturers in this segment keep coming up with new ideas and innovations. And the latest of these will be on show.
Among the many innovations at this show, a key focus will be on drive technology for mobile construction machinery. In addition, Energy-efficiency and fuel-saving are two of the main trends that will be in the spotlight too.
bauma is not only the leading international event for construction machinery, building material machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment – it is also the world's biggest trade fair for mining machinery. It has become an important business platform where the mining sector features a growing number of exhibitors and an increasingly international range of exhibits and simultaneously provided outstanding opportunities for networking and boosting business prospects.
Moreover, the organizers also arrange forums (international communication platforms) where exhibitors, trade associations and business partners can present the latest product developments, trends and comprehensive overview of the current market scenario. To tackle the ongoing shortage of engineers in the industry, a new forum THINK BIG is started with an objective to generate interest in the coming generation to shape up their future by joining the construction machinery and building-materials machines industry.
For this edition, bauma has chosen Indonesia as the partner country. The country's building industry is booming and in the raw materials sector, too, major investment is scheduled for the mid-term – all of which are good reasons why bauma focused more closely on this economic region and the exciting opportunities it offers for the future.
The nominations for the bauma Innovation Award 2013, which is being presented as part of bauma, were already announced at the press conference held at the bauma Media Dialog in January in Munich. The award is divided into five categories i.e Machinery, Machinery components, Construction process/Construction work, Research and Design. Out of a total of 156 submissions from Germany and abroad, the jury selected three groundbreaking innovations per category to go through to the final round. Most of the new developments will also be on show at bauma.
bauma is currently at the peak of its excellence as it is not just exceeding in terms of the quantity, but also the quality of participants who are the decision makers. The show gives opportunities to visitors to experience the presentation of various innovative and new developments that are going to be introduced in the show for the first time. Besides, it provides a unique atmosphere to participants to cultivate and strengthen their business ties by inking new contacts thereby pushing their business to newer heights.

In addition to many innovative products, Haulotte will also present EASY SPARE PARTS (ESP) website. ESP is the Haulotte Group tool that customers can use to consult technical documentation and to order spare parts online. To improve the quality of service for its customers and to make the tool even easier to use, Haulotte Services is updating ESP.
The new compact four cylinder 854F-E34TA will spearhead the range on show, which will comprise engines from the company's 400 and 1200 Series as well. The new model incorporates specially optimized Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology for the first time. This is packaged separately from the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) module, giving OEMs greater installation flexibility in the engine bay. Space saving is further enhanced through the absence of a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).
Performance from the 854F-E34TA has been boosted to 90 kW (121 hp) while the 8 percent improvement in specific fuel consumption (SFC) gained at Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Interim has been retained. Heat rejection remains similar to its predecessor meaning no major changes to the size of the cooling pack, helping to maintain the engine's compact dimensions.
Alongside the 854F-E34TA, models on display include the single turbo 1206F-E70TA, which for OEMs wanting lots of torque at low speed, offers up to 151 kW (202 hp) at 2200 rpm with maximum torque of 870 Nm at 1400 rpm. In developing the 1200 Series Perkins sought to minimize the impact of the aftertreatment required to meet Stage IV/Tier 4 Final requirements, in particular the significant reduction in NOx. Perkins has achieved this through packaging the DOC / DPF canister and the SCR system into one integrated module, which can be positioned remotely in a machine chassis or directly on top of the engine.
The mass stabilisation process is carried out by feeding dry powder like binder from a pressure feeder via hose to the mixing head mounted on an excavator. The mixing head is positioned to the right place on the work area with the help of the new ALLU 3D Positioning System. The ALLU 3D Positioning System consists of 4 modules: computer unit with software, touch screen, base station and gps-sensor utilizing gps -signals.
The new ALLU 3D Positioning System guides the base machine operator to feed right amount of binder and to mix adequately each block of the site. It also tells when to change location and start stabilising from another point. Thus it eases the performance of the mixing work, ensures homogenous mixing results and accurate binder feeding as well as reduces the consumption of the binder. As the end result higher quality and better job site economy can be reached. The new ALLU 3D Positioning System can be mounted on every ALLU Stabilisation System, new or old.
