Raman Joshi
Mr. Raman Joshi,
MD, Manitowoc Cranes
Manitowoc will introduce two new topless tower cranes-the MCT 205 and MCT 85 from its Potain brand at this year's bC India.

The new topless models include the latest design for better on-site placement, allowing contractors to situate more cranes on projects, to speed construction. Raman Joshi, managing director of Manitowoc Cranes India, says "The new topless cranes which will be a major highlight at bC India, are easy to erect, highly efficient and very reliable - the three major requirements of crane users across the country. The new tower cranes, together with other displays on our booth, will show visitors that how we are true leaders in lifting."

Potain MCT 205
The MCT 205 tower crane has a 10t maximum capacity and can lift 1.75 t at its maximum jib end of 65 m. With a focus on fast erection, the complete upper works for the MCT 205 can be assembled in four lifts. The heaviest group of components is just 7.9 t and the full 65 m jib can be placed in a single lift. Attention has been paid to transportation too, with three jib sections able to fit inside a standard container.

Manitowoc Tower Crane

Potain MCT 85
The second model in the Potain line-up of new topless cranes is the MCT 85. Smaller than the MCT 205, it has a 5 t maximum capacity and an ability to lift 1.1 t at its jib end of 52 m. This practical unit is efficiently easy to transport, needing just two trucks for the entire top portion of the crane.

Again, on-site assembly is simplified thanks to the pre-assembly work done at the Potain factory in Pune before the crane is delivered to the customer. For example, the counterjib and towerhead are assembled as a single component and can be lifted as such. Connecting the jib is quick and easy, facilitated through the use of pin-connectors. This means the entire upperworks of the MCT 85 is connected in just two sections.

Like the MCT 205, the MCT 85 can be operated as an internal climbing crane, sitting inside the building it is constructing. Mounted on 1.2 m mast sections, the crane offers a maximum free-standing height of 33.2 m when operating internally.

Views on government's 'Make in India' Campaign
It's definitely a proactive thought and should get all the backing it needs. In my view, it needs to be firstly backed by the necessary modifications in rules and regulations that make it easy to setup and do business in India. This if done well will encourage companies like ours to further invest and work more closely with the Indian CE OEMs. This will make them globally competitive and that can only be a good thing.

Growth Overview of CE industry & Murphy Business
We, at Murphy, see good days ahead for the Indian CE and Mining industry. Technology acceptance is going to be a key in making our equipment globally competitive. I see no reason why Indian home grown companies can't be globally recognized manufacturers. In the next 3 to 5 years, we will see more Indian companies getting things right and growing at the rate of 8 - 10% YOY, which I beleive is very much possible. Companies like Murphy will also play an important role to facilitate this and support the OEMs achieve this.

We shall definitely be benefitted by our readiness in tune with the requirements of the times.

Views on government's 'Make in India' Campaign
Unless the Govt. announces its policies for this sector including the tax reforms and benefits to its allied industries and the implementation is felt on the ground, impact on the growth of CE Sector cannot be assessed. However, we are all waiting for the announcements and are hopeful for the future.

Growth Overview of CE industry & ACE Business
With the new Government, sentiments are improving but the impact of this change is still not visible on the ground. We feel it will take some more time to see visible changes in the demand pattern.

ACE Tower Crane
Tower Cranes: If we look at sector wise growth, the demand for Tower Cranes is likely to grow from the first quarter of the calendar year 2015 onwards. Tower Crane demand is mainly driven by growth in Real Estate and Infrastructure Sector and expect it will grow by approx. 15-20% next year.

In order to drive the demand for Tower Cranes, we also offer Tower Cranes on rental basis, which helps a contractor to utilize Tower Crane without getting into hassles of fixed cost. Customers need not bother about operations and maintenance or availability / uptime issues. We provide the complete package which enables customers to work with Tower Cranes without owning them.

We also offer Self-erecting Mobile Tower Cranes which are of smaller capacities and work for buildings up to 10 floors. These Cranes are very good for smaller projects and are in great demand from tier 2 cities.

Forklift Trucks: ACE is today established as one of the largest manufacturers of Forklifts in India. The range includes Electric Forklift (1 - 3 Tons), Diesel Forklift (1.5 - 35 Tons), & LPG Forklift (3 Ton). ACE forklifts are known to be cost-effective, durable and high performance. ACE forklifts are registered with relevant Govt. agencies &Defence sector and have received some of the bulk prestigious orders from Govt. & public sector agencies like Railways & Defence.

Road Construction Equipment: Road Construction Equipment division of ACE has several quality products to offer like the Soil & Tandem compactors, Motor Graders, Backhoe Loaders & Wheel Loaders. The market is set to boom for these Road Construction Equipment once the Govt. Policies are in place and the effect is visible in the market.

The key success factors for the future depends on innovative financing and value-added services where the focus is on increased penetration of financing, leasing and rental services, providing adequate maintenance to equipment and training to crew, and facilitating immediate repair and refurbishing of equipment. The study also points out the importance of R&D and innovation in terms of appropriate product technology and pricing, product customization for different applications, product reliability and ease of use, and last but not the least, post-sales support in terms of service and training infrastructure, focus on maintenance of equipment, ensuring the availability of spare parts and widening the distribution network to service the client better.

Despite the prevailing global uncertainties, rising needs of better infrastructure, modernized methods of agriculture and growing complexity of mining/manufacturing methods will boost demand for technologically advanced equipment in these industries. Moreover, looking ahead, the growth path widens for the emerging and developing nations, which will inevitably be attractive destinations for machine makers worldwide. The new political dispensation lends lots of credibility and hope for growth in infrastructure sector in future.

Mr. Vipul Gupta M.D,
Vipul Sameer Agencies Pvt. Ltd.
bC India is one of the premier exhibitions in the country and was quite successful in its first time in getting quality visitors. This time also there is quite a buzz around the exhibition and we expect that as it is the first major show in north India on CE, footfalls should be good both in numbers and quality. With a stable and proactive government at the Centre, the sentiment of the market is improving on daily basis and we believe that this show has come at the right time when we are expecting a turnaround in the infrastructure segment. We participate as we understand that the real customer is looking for a place where he can meet the sellers of a wide range of products needed by him and take a real time look at the offerings which ideally a show like this provides.

Products on Display-USP and Technical Attributes
Our company is dealing in providing solutions- both product supply and service, to the equipment users in the concrete and aggregate industry. We produce and sell replacement wear and spare parts for various equipment including:
  • Concrete Pumps and Batching Plants for Civil Constructions and RMC sector
  • Stone Crushing Plants in both merchant selling and road building sectors
  • Grouting equipment for soil reinforcement and stabilization in underground structures
  • Asphalt Mixing Plants for road building segment.
While we shall be showcasing our regular products, we are also launching during this exhibition our world-class Shotcrete Hose for use in concrete pumping equipment used for mortar and cement spraying during underground works. This hose is specially made for the new age shotcreting machines which require high abrasion resistance, high pressure sustainability and high flexibility - all parameters to be optimally achieved for best performance.

Shotcrete Hose

Our USP is primarily our ability to 'Design', 'Develop' and 'Deliver' (3 D's) customized parts solutions to companies using a variety of construction machinery. We are also trying to add 'Delight' as the 4th D to complete the customer orientation of our processes.

Sustainable Features
We believe that by supplying parts of the highest quality, which ensure optimum performance and minimum breakdown in CE is the best, a solution provider like us can ensure that inefficiency is rooted out of the system. A high uptime of all equipment goes a long way in ensuring that projects do not get delayed and are also meeting the quality standards as required for sustainable development of the infrastructure with minimized adverse effect on the environment. Equipment are the backbone of any construction activity. So, ill-maintained or breakdown-prone equipment lead to poor construction quality and huge delays causing large scale wastage of time, manpowers and resources. This does not help in any way in taking care of the environment, which we feel should be the duty of all citizens of the nation.

Views on government's 'Make in India' Campaign
The new government has embarked upon a major drive of 'Make in India' which we feel was long overdue. A nation can progress only when it is self reliant and has a strong and robust manufacturing segment which takes care of all needs and desires of its population. It seems that this government is keen on actually delivering on the easing of regulations and registration processes for businesses. Production facilities provide cost competitiveness, large scale employment opportunities for the people, shorter lead times on projects, easy maintenance of equipment due to local availability of parts among many other benefits creating a win-win situation for the economy in general. An important thing which is essential to make this program a success is the ability of the local manufacturers to rise to the challenge of producing world-class machines and to pass on the benefits of local production to the actual buyers. Often it is witnessed that the industry is not able to take benefits of the government's patronization due to its inability to honestly pass on the benefits to the consumers.

Growth Overview of CE industry & Vipul Business
Construction Equipment industry currently is going through a very tough phase due to unfavorable conditions. Large scale delays, rising interest costs, undercutting and policy paralysis on part of the previous governments, have led to severe liquidity crunch being faced by the construction companies and it is a challenge specially for the bigger players who have multiple projects to survive the period. Lack of prudent financial policies and overleveraging has resulted in drying up of funds in the system as financial institutions are not able to recover their dues and are hesitant to provide additional funding to old projects or starting new ones. This has caused idling of resources including equipment and manpower. But the new government's policies are now firmly moving in a positive direction and we hope that a turnaround will be seen sooner than expected and stuck up projects and new projects should be starting at the earliest. Our company used this recession period to firm up its processes and resources and we are confident that with market improvement we are better prepared than ever to provide solutions to our esteemed customers when time comes in future.

Mr. Enric Solsona Area Manager for the Middle East and Asia, Prensoland
PRENSOLAND will invite the visitors to share our views about the full precast building in India focused on the scale of the precast initiatives, the related building methods and the necessary economic viability.

In the absence of concrete pre-casters, either in pre-stressed or reinforced concrete, the developers or the constructors in this country are willing to setup factories to produce the elements they require at the sites. This is a new business for them requiring a different professional approach and know-how.

With a 56 years of experience in many different countries, our company is ready to bring its expertise to the local constructors and developers in India for a sustainable and successful business model development in the full pre-cast concrete.

Prensoland Concrete Pre Casters

Products on Display
At bC India, we will display our concrete machinery: block machines and machines for manufacturing prestressed beams and hollow core slabs.

Our company is the only OEM designing and manufacturing both: (1) equipment for the production of pre-stressed elements and (2) installations with presses to produce blocks, bricks, pavers or kerb stones. The products obtained are specially made for their use in seismic zones.

The PRENSOLAND equipment offers: pre-engineered features to ease a quick and reliable assembly of the pre-cast concrete elements; different levels of automation to suit the necessities of our customers. The presses are adapted to new materials.

We offer feasibility studies, the optimized design for pre-stressed elements profiles, the design of the buildings with BIM software and the plant engineering.

Products Sustainable Features
VMI Vibrating System
In the presses, we include the partial use of fly ash mixed in the concrete while the electronic VMI vibrating system reduces the use of cement and the electrical power consumption.

Our equipment which produces pre-stressed elements use half to one-third of the electrical power compared to the other technologies with mechanical elements in play. On the other hand, the optimized design of the profiles reduces the amount of materials required to comply with any structure demand.

Views on government's 'Make in India' Campaign
The 'Make in India' program is a key to the Indian industrial sector but addressed to the indigenous entrepreneurial spirit, not to the foreign equipment manufacturers as a way to avoid the taxes.

The country has to believe in itself, its talent and its competences to definitely create the 'Made in India' brand as token of a determined attitude to never look back, avoiding old mindsets like the one that the foreign countries are trying to 'milk' the country once more along its history. It is crucial in this journey to modern India that the Government directives persuade the investors to keep their resources in the country.

Growth Overview of CE industry & Prensoland Business
In all the free countries, there are two rules that generally apply in their economies: the market leads everything or the business opportunities are result of a decision from the Government. The recent decision of the central Government to consider the affordable housing as infrastructure is an example.

The growth of construction equipment industry will most probably happen as a mix of indigenous production and foreign supply, where the import of equipment has to be seen for the technological boost that no doubt will speed up the development of the infrastructure and housing initiatives.

The Art of Scaffolding: Layher Allround Bridging System for Pedestrian Bridge

Mithilesh Kumar
Mr. Mithilesh Kumar, Director,
Layher scaffolding systems Pvt Ltd
For more than 60 years, the Layher name has been synonymous worldwide with high-quality and practically tested scaffolding systems. The company has worldwide presence with more than 30 sales subsidiaries. Its products are used for building and construction, in all kinds of industries like chemical plants or power plants, at shipyards and offshore. Due to innovative products, superior technical solutions and absolute customer oriented service package, Layher has become the standard in scaffolding systems worldwide.

The Allround bridging systems are the ideal complements to Layher Allround equipment with just few additional components, the load-bearing capacity of the proven Allround systems can be increased enough to create for example, wide- span footbridges or support structure for heavy loads.

The Allround Bridging system is a modular truss system that can be adapted to the respective application. The posts of the Allround Bridging Systems have wedge heads welded to the side, to which standards of the Allround equipment can be fastened. As a result, the Allround Bridging Systems can be combined with Allround equipment, offering a wide range of possible uses. A complete integration into an Allround Scaffolding structure (e.g. to transfer high loads or for bridging of wide spans) is also possible. The individual components of the Layher Allround Bridging System are connected in a time-saving way using bolts of diameter 30 mm. The connection to the Allround equipment is made using the proven Allround wedge head connection.

Layher All round Bridging System
Innovative supplementary component: even unsupported bridging structures with a span of up to 30 meters can be completed, or high loads can be supported thanks to the modular All-round bridging system from Layher

A standard Layher bridge structure mainly comprises two loads transferring Allround Bridging Systems which are arranged parallel to one another at a defined distance, depending on the required bridge width. A stable bridge supporting structure is obtained with an internal Allround scaffolding structure fastened between the two Allround Bridging Systems. The stiffening in the transverse direction and hence the stabilization of the Allround Bridging Systems is achieved with horizontally arranged bracing in the Allround structure. The bridge decking and the guard rails are fastened to the internal Allround scaffolding structure. The entire bridge structure - both bridging units in combination with internal Allround Scaffolding - is finally supported at the bridge ends. The support can for example be on individual Layher heavy-duty supports integrated into a separate stairway access. In some cases, it is also possible to support the end posts of the bridge directly on existing foundations, beams or walls.

With the new development of "Allround bridging system" Layher offers the optimal solution for the construction of a more than hundred metres long pedestrian crossing with free spanned bridge elements of 31 metres.

Temporary Pedestrian Bridge UK Layher Allround Scaffold Pedestrian Bridge England
Layher Allround Bridging System as temporary pedestrian bridge at UK (Drax Power Station) Layher Allround Scaffold as pedestrian bridge in England

Application of Allround Bridging Systems
When a footbridge is built, the Allround bridging systems are connected to Allround standards using the wedge-heads provided on the sides of post. Depending on the application, either event decks or steel decks can be used. These support elements permit pre-assembly on the ground and subsequent insertion by crane, which is a major advantage when spanning bridge across roads.

As a replacement for the closed bridge, the construction of a temporary pedestrian crossing was ordered which was to cross the road and railway parallel to the existing bridge. Tasks of this nature generally require project-oriented and therefore expensive special constructions. With the innovation from Layher, scaffolders can now offer this service much more efficiently with only a few additional components to the Allround system. After a successful appearance in Davos at the World Economic Forum, the use of the Allround bridging system for this project with supporting spans of up to 31 metres was also the optimal solution.

In order to derange traffic on this highly frequented route as little as possible, the construction was pre-assembled on the ground. To bridge road and river, provisions were made for two sections of 31 metres each. To compensate deflexion, these were constructed thanks to the lengthwise adjustable diagonal brace with a slight cant. Within only five minutes, the builders in charge were now able to place the two parts of the bridge onto the supports by means of a crane: during the afternoon over the river, and at night - during a short complete closure - over the motorway. One day, one night - and the bridge is completed for duration of approximately four to six months. Accesses as well as the middle section were, thanks to full compatibility, constructed with the Allround scaffolding.

Nova Formwork System

Nova group of companies manufactures many plastic products at their plants in Delhi and Bangalore from the last 35 years and introduces products which are of the latest technology. The company's products are plastic raw materials, plastic molded furniture, plastic corrugated flute board, Blow molded water tanks and Plastic formwork systems. It has recently introduced light weight scaffolding and supporting system for formwork in the market.

Nova formwork system, introduced around 4 years ago, is the first Indian plastic modular formwork system. "Looking at the Indian construction industry facing the tough challenges in cast-in-situ operations using plywood and steel formwork, it was necessary to introduce a system which could be easy to use and also reduce the cost," said the company spokesperson.

Nova Formwork System

NOVA Formwork is a plastic system & leading company in the development of shuttering system manufactured from Composite Plastic Material. Plastic Shuttering building system represents a revolution in the area of shuttering because of their universality, lightness, simplicity, durability, solidity, resistance to temperature change and of course their price competitiveness. This is the only shuttering that can work in salt & fresh water without any damage. It has very good surface finish with no need to plaster and also ease of use.

The panels can be fixed and attached with each other with the help of the locking handles which are of the exact size and they fit into the panels exactly and there is no gap between the panels when locked. The locks help the various panels to join together and make it a single panel as the panels lock very well and there is no leakage of concrete from in-between the panels.

While making the walls, these panels are attached in two lines having the face of the panels parallel to each other in such a way that the panel tie rod holes match each other and by using aligner / wallers the tie rods can be reduced and with the help of spacers have a exact distance between the two panels as of the size of the walls.

It has already been used in all types of construction like pile caps, foundations, rafts, columns, shear walls, retaining walls, walls, slab, beam, monolithic formwork etc. It is the best system for verticals and casting cast-in- situ cellular low weight concrete walls and has been adopted by LNT in their projects for inner walls in Gurgaon and some other contractors in projects in lucknow. The slab system is with the drop head system where one can achieve slab cycles of 4-5 days as well. Now slab plates are also available with plastic steel combination. The company has started rental of nova formwork for columns and slabs. Nova is open to associate with companies for its rental and sale in different cities who have a local presence in construction field in that city. Visit Nova formwork at bC India HALL NO. 8, A-49

Apart from that, the systems to display would cater to the most common formwork system requirements enquired by all customer groups for their projects in India. The USP lies on the panel formwork system which comes with finishes like painted or galvanized and inherent flexibility of adaptation to any type of structure. The focus has been reserved to those systems which are cost-effective, easy to use, quick assembly and disassembly, ensures faster cycle period and an added factor of very high durability. Apart from this, there will also be display of EVERMAX composite ply board to be used in vertical and horizontal systems which carries unique USPs like high abrasion and chemical resistance, 10 years long life span, 100% recyclability etc.

Products Sustainable Features Each and every type of material used for manufacturing of our formworks is 100% recyclable. The raw material sourcing has preferential selection factors so as to leave the least carbon foot print as per EN norms.

Views on government's 'Make in India' Campaign
Given a foolproof technology which has emerged out of continuous R&D exercise by ULMA over the last 5 decades, components manufactured in India strictly adhering to ULMA specifications and quality control can help follow the government's 'Make in India' programme and thus infuse tremendous competitiveness in the price of such system formworks. This can also help in reducing the gap in price between conventional and system formworks - thus making affordability easier even for the 2nd and 3rd tier contractors to embrace the technology by way of using system formworks resulting in better output w.r.t. quality and speed.

Growth Overview of CE industry & MFE Business
For the last 5 years, the real estate sector has really lost its sheen as compared to the exponential growth experienced till 2008. Positive signs of improvement and overall consolidation of this business sector have been experienced since the wave of a new stable government with positive growth outlook began doing the rounds. The Economy getting stronger day by day and inflation on a downtrend is having a positive impact on real estate sector coming up with lots of new projects with commitment to quality and timely delivery. We have experienced this from the enquiries received for system formworks from many construction companies who have been primarily using conventional systems all along. However, usage of our type of formwork system in the infrastructure sector still remains quite limited mainly due to price restrictions.

To summarize, the market outlook has definitely improved over the last one year and trending towards sustainable growth path for next 5 years at least.

Our machines are tailored to the Indian construction conditions and currently we have over 130 + units of concrete kerbing machines working in India so we think it is important for us to display the arrow brand at all major exhibitions especially at bC India 2014.

Rightvision India

Mr. S.P.Rastogi
Rightvision India
Right vision is participating at bC show and will display its product such as PVC Cover Blocks. As bC India provides a huge platform for the various players in the construction industry, hence we expect to expand our reach to many new prospects clients through this exhibition.

Products on Display-USPs and Technical Attributes
Right vision products are considered as Formwork Accessories and their range includes plastic (PVC/ HDPE) Grass Pavers, Cones, Plugs, Sleeve Cones, Chamfers, Gratings etc besides Cover Blocks for which we are the pioneers in India. We also have the capabilities to customize our wide range of products on special orders.

As compared to traditional concrete Cover Blocks which find wide application during construction, our plastic Cover Blocks are ready to use and easy to place or carry as they are lighter and do not require any binding to the reinforcements, cost effective, unaffected by vibrations / tempering, do not crumble or disintegrate, are stable, chemically inert and bond well with concrete.

Right vision image
The plastic cover blocks can be produced in thousands per day in Injection Moulding Machines utilizing multi cavity moulds. These do not require huge sheds for casting and curing and one does not need to worry for atmospheric moisture affecting the curing process. Our plastic Cover Blocks conform to international standards for physical and chemical properties like Compressive Load Strength, Chlorides & Sulphates content, Ash content, Acid Resistance, Density, Melting Point etc.

Views on government's 'Make in India' Campaign
We heartily welcome the new Central Govt's "Make in India" programme, being the pioneers in manufacture of PVC Cover Blocks, in substitution of concrete cover blocks. The fast expanding construction and building industry in our country has been using lot of machinery and equipment for best use of resources and saving time, labour and costs. Such deployment of machines / equipment is bound to leapfrog with the current govt.'s emphasis on infrastructure and housing. Hence the indigenous manufacture of construction machinery /equipment will bring down costs, save foreign exchange and generate much needed employment benefitting the national economy, and help reduce overall construction costs.

Growth Overview of CE industry & Right Vision Business
The construction equipment industry's growth is certainly linked directly to the growth of infrastructure and building industry. It is a big relief to note that many mega projects are ready to take off now. The present govt.'s announcement of establishing 100 smart cities and the long pending push to Infra sector will give a shot in the arm of Shuttering segment also and therefore, our plastic products like cover blocks etc. will be required in huge quantities while concrete cover blocks will not stand competition in terms of volume since they require 28 days curing time apart from expansive casting sheds at site.

We at Rightvision, therefore, are very hopeful that with the new decisive majority Central Govt in place, a very high growth would come about in the construction industry greatly benefitting the national economy.

In every trade show, we go with the intention of connecting with our customers, our competitors, industry captains and the industry in particular to understand more deeply and precisely the new opportunities, requirements and demands of the market. These events help us shape up our future plans for the markets in terms of product development, R&D, services etc. bC India is definitely one of them and a great platform to achieve this.

Since Sicoma Mixers India Pvt Ltd's (SMIPL) incorporation in India in 2007, we have participated in all major trade shows in the country. Our experience has been very encouraging despite ups and downs in the industry.

Sicoma Mixers

Products on Display-USPs and Technical Attributes
Apart from showcasing our core strength of designing and manufacturing Planetary and Twin Shaft Mixers, we will widely utilise the bC India platform to launch a new Twin Shaft Mixer MAO 750/500 with an output capacity of 0.5M3 batch size of compacted concrete.

Of late we have observed that Twin Shaft Mixers are increasingly gaining popularity in lower capacity plants (< 30M3/Hr.) due to low wear and tear, better productivity and quality of mix. The demand for these small capacity Twin Shaft Mixers has resulted in Sicoma designing and manufacturing the MAO 750/500, 0.5 M3 Twin Shaft Mixer exclusively for the Indian sub-continent market.

This Mixer has significant importance for markets here, as large construction projects prefer to have captive plants at site for concrete production. We are sure this Mixer is going to garner a large amount of interest among our customers.

We will also showcase our services and products for Concrete Distribution System (travelling buckets etc.), which we would like to introduce in India. Other products on display shall be our Planetary Mixer with skip & bucket arrangement.

Sustainable Features
Well, we produce our products keeping in mind the general requirements of the market. We believe in utilising minimum resources and delivering maximum. Our products are built on common platforms and ideology.

Views on government's 'Make in India' Campaign
This is a very good initiative by our new Union Government. For the past few years we have seen CE Industry proposing such initiatives to the governments, but they would fizzle out midway due to reasons beyond our control. They could be political, bureaucratic etc.

Sicoma Mixers India
But the 'Make in India' initiative coming from none other than our Honourable Prime Minister sounds very good. I am sure the new government will always devise ways to facilitate the CE Industry to implement this initiative smoothly and flawlessly. Referring to our new launch of the MAO 750/500 Mixer in India, it is truly our goal to manufacture this product 100% in India.

The 'Make in India' programme will contribute to the impetus the CE Industry has been looking for. The benefits of such a programme shall be many in terms of employment generation, additional capex and probably most importantly offering our customers world class products which will be made in India. But then, the markets too have to open up.

Growth Overview of CE industry & Sicoma Business
If you look at the growth graph of CE Industry over the last 2 decades, you would see growth peaking and at its best between 2005 to 2008. Since then we have seen mixed responses/reactions by CE Industry to market situations. Sicoma in India was incorporated in 2007, and we have been through tough times as well. I hope we have seen the worst. Since SMIPL's incorporation in India, we have supplied 300+ Mixers, expanded our capacities and are on track with a firm growth plan for the future. This is testimony to the fact that Sicoma is committed to the Indian market.

With a stable government in place, I am sure situations should change for better. We have already seen signs of market revival in the months of Aug, Sep & Oct'14.


LASCO is participating at bC India and will present its sand-lime block presses of the KSP series which are the cornerstone of modern sand-lime block production. Equipped with an electro-oil-hydraulic drive they compact from two sides with an accuracy of 0.1 mm and consistent homogeneity. This is a prerequisite for uniform stability of the block in its entire cross-section.

The two press punches may be adjusted easily to the filled in mass, thus saving energy, as only pressure required for individual forming is exerted.

Proven, reliable design ensures continuous precision by means of a rigid press frame with accurate guiding system and advanced valve technology which delivers the correct fill height to the mould.

In-process measuring technology monitors and controls production quality by continuously checking, and, if necessary, adjusting the block height and the force required for correct compacting of the sand-lime-water mixture.

Block heights of up to 350 mm are the speciality of the compact KSE press, developed especially for low heights of construction and foundation pits. It is used both for the production of traditional sand-lime blocks and - in a number of countries - for the production of blocks with aggregates (e.g. fly ash and slag).

The press design guarantees ease of access. The hydraulic drive is mounted on floor level. Filling device, mould box and block removal device are all integrated in a hydraulically driven compact component. The block removal is facilitated by a lifting device of high sensitivity.

An optimum cycle time is achieved by simultaneous execution of various operations, such as filling the mould box and removing the green blocks.

Depending on the size of the KSE press, up to 34 blocks (KSE 1250) may be pressed in one stroke. The programmable control system stores all quality parameters. Setting up the machine for different block formats and raw material mixtures is unproblematic. The quality of the sand-lime blocks produced meets the German standard DIN 106.

Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft - the world market leader in the field of transport technologies brings revolution in self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs) segment with the introduction of the new PST/ES-E Heavy-Duty Modules.

The new generation comprises three heavy-duty modular transporters: the PST/ES-E 6 (315) with an axle load of 45 t, the PST/ES-E (285) with electronic multiway steering and hydraulically adjustable track width, and the PST/ES-E (385), the first modular transporter with an axle load of 60 t.


With a track width of 1810 mm, the PST/ES-E (285) has 24% greater lateral stability than a conventional SPMT with a track width of 1450 mm. With a basic width of 2430 mm, it can be quickly transported to the next job and offers optimum maneuverability - with less manpower than is normally the case.

The PST/ES-E (385) is designed for ultra-heavy loads and offers the optimum payload/axle load ratio - with standard truck tires. And that is one of the keys: All the new self-propelled modules can be fitted with standard low loader or truck tires in 215, 285, 315, and 385 mm widths. In addition, due to the +/-135° steering angle and the larger tire contact area, tire wear is significantly reduced. As drive units, there is a choice of four PowerPacks with a rated output of 150, 207, 360 and 390 kW, two of which are already in compliance with the new TIER IV Final Standard. A hybrid drive is also available as an optional.

"Goldhofer's new SPMT generation is also superior to conventional SPMTs with regard to such decisive parameters as capacity, bending moment, speed and tractive force," says Jean-Philippe Martin. Due to the new drive system, travel speed has increased by between 30 and 100%, while tractive force is up by 27.5% and lateral stability is up to 24% higher. "These factors and also the lower mobilization costs are a source of real added value," Jean-Philippe Martin points out. For Stefan Fuchs, one thing is clear: "With our new PST/ES-E modules in the SPMT segment, we have proved once again that Goldhofer is the world market leader in terms of technology, quality and value retention."

Manufactured Sand
Sand is one of the most important ingredients in deciding the strength and quality of concrete. Experts have recommended technical parameters and methods to judge the quality of sand. Fineness Module (FM) of sand is one such important parameter in judging quality of sand.

Materials which can be crushed to make sand are limestone, granite, basalt, gravel, andesite, sandstone, silica, and quartzite. In short, any sound stone used for construction material can be crushed to produce sand.

At PROMAN, we manufacture crushers which produce manufactured sand by crushing aggregates. Manufactured sand has a tremendous demand in India.

Custom Engineered Equipment for Sand Manufacturing
REMco Sandmax VSI is exclusively designed to produce sand and other fine products. It produces manufactured sand from hard abrasive rock at an affordable cost. It can be custom engineered to meet specific sand production requirements. Typically the power consumption in a REMco VSI is in the range of 1 to 1.4 HP per ton which is quite close to the power cost of a tertiary cone. The REMco VSI offers shape and grade advantage and the material goes 100% through the rotor whether it is "Rock on Rock" or "Rock on Anvil" design. The flexibility of the rotor speed, type of chamber and rotor offers greater control on gradation.

PROMAN-REMco VSIs are crushers and not just shapers. Better design and material technology guarantee lesser wear-cost per ton. REMco VSIs are easy to maintain as they can be serviced from top. The tips are "insert" type unlike the traditional "bolt on" type used by others. Lubrication is also easy as greasing can be done through centralized greasing block.

Dual Purpose Aggregate Plant
The plant for concrete sand manufacturing that meets the IS: 383 (Zone I and II) specifications requires an elaborate flow circuit design. The equipment consists of surge bin, feeder, automation, screen, washing and blending gates. Surge bin is necessary to provide a ready large quantity of new feed to the crusher.

PROMAN PROjaw Jaw crushers

A feeder is essential as it controls the rate of new feed introduced to the sand circuit. A feeder allows optimum and continuous flow or new feed. The addition automation increases sand production by 10-30%. The vibratory screen is designed for fine screening below 3/16" (4.75 mm). It may be 2 or 3 deck type. It can be horizontal or inclined style

Mr. Wilfried Theissen
MD, Putzmeister
bC India, one of the most renowned trade fair shows covering construction sector, is a perfect platform to represent the consequent endeavor to create added value for clients and the whole industry. Therefore it offers an ideal opportunity for image and branding. Putzmeister aims to meet its partners from the industry, to exchange views and create a positive bond for mutual business in the upcoming business year. Business opportunities can only be created through an amalgamation of ideas, brainstorming and exchanges of Industrial expertise and this is exactly what Putzmeister seeks to achieve during bC India trade event.

Products on Display-USPs and Technical Attributes
At Putzmeister, we pursue a research and development strategy that is closely linked to our client's expectations. In the last 12 months, we have come up with a complete range of trailer mounted concrete pump BSA eSmart namely; the BSA 1404 D, BSA 1405 D, and BSA 1407 D. Putzmeister has successfully placed this new product range amongst the existing as well as the new clients. The OPS (Open Pump System) helps reduce the hydraulic oil usage, thereby helping to cut down on operational costs which, in turn helps the customers with long- term savings. Features like the HMI (Human Machine Interface) control panel and EGD (Ergonic Graphic Display), have levelled the convenience for Putzmeister's customers by allowing easy tracking of the machine performance on real time basis. An example of optimum performance of the Putzmeister eSmart range is the BSA 1407 D that recently performed 113m vertical pumping at the M3M project, Guragaon. With its presence at bC India, Putzmeister will certainly launch other new products, but since Putzmeister believes in solid partnership and trust, this will be unveiled to the clients first and then to the entire market.

BSA 1407 eSmart

Products Sustainable Features
As mentioned above, Putzmeister machines are smarter now and apart from being environment-friendly, It also largely focusses on the human and machine safety. The emergency switch on the control panel is very easy to access. It stops the entire operation of the machine when pressed in case of an emergency. The RSA - which is the grill safety switch, keeps the pump and agitator from working if the hopper grill is open, thereby avoiding accidents and ensuring the safety of the operator.


Also, Putzmeister's NG BSF 36-4 is equipped with delivery cylinders of 230 mm diameter, which the company proudly names 'Big Mouth'. Its cylinders of 230 mm diameter are 32% more efficient in filling the pipeline than its smaller counterparts with a diameter of 200 mm. During pumping, suction is enabled to the cylinder and then pushed out through the pipeline. The suction is particularly difficult in the boom pump since the cylinders are positioned upwards to accommodate the truck axel. The usage of the 230 mm diameter cylinders leads to a better suction efficiency of the concrete which results in a better filling ratio. This is imperative with rough concrete. The "Big Mouth" solution reduces running costs, diesel consumption, maintenance cost on wear and tear parts for every cubic meter pumped.

EBAWE’s First Carrousel Plant Delivered in India for Precast Concrete Panels

Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd. is one of the leading construction giants in India and abroad. The company is specialized in the construction of residential buildings erected with precast concrete panels.

For the erection of the huge housing complex "New Haven" in Bangalore, Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd. invested in state-of-the-art technology from Germany. For the delivery and installation of an automated precast factory, the market-leading supplier EBAWE Anlagentechnik was charged. The plant is utilized for the manufacture of solid wall and floor panels and is the first carrousel system of its kind in India.

The New Haven project has a built-up area of 1.7 million square feet and comprises 35 towers in total. It is a green township and designed by internationally acclaimed architects from the USA. With the new precast plant, about 70 flats will be erected per month.

The carrousel systems consist of 30 production pallets circulating in the plant. The product contours generated from CAD data are marked out by the plotter on the pallet surface. The shuttering is placed manually on the pallet surface at additional workstations. After the casting process, the freshly poured concrete is compacted by a high frequency compacting equipment. The pallets are then transported by the pallet stacker into a curing rack. Once the elements are cured, the finished wall panels are removed by means of a tilting equipment. The floor panels are lifted horizontally in their later installation position.

The whole precast panel production is controlled, supervised and optimized by the universal manufacturing execution system ebos®.

EBAWE convinced not only with the right solution as global contractor but also met the very short deadline. The project started in July 2013 and the first precast elements were manufactured 6 months later after the long shipment of 2 months.


Shapoorji Pallonji is very confident with the German technology and highlights the reliability and excellent delivery time of EBAWE that was able to realize the whole project in such a short period. At bC visit EBAWE in hall H3, stand no. K36!

Rebar Fabricators can take advantage of Optimal Cut suggestions to plan the cut and bending of steel and fully utilise stock lengths. Accurate bend deduction calculations that comply with IS-2502 can help save steel before the beginning of fabrication. In addition, time spent checking and double checking drawings and schedules is reduced significantly, whilst edits and revisions are handled quickly and efficiently without large increases to costs. The automatic revision of BBS helps save 100% of the time consumed in preparing manual schedules.

For developers, ultimately savings in time can help increase productivity and enable more projects to be handled by one preferred Contractor. This plethora of data in turn means they can combine projects, to realise even bigger material savings through maintaining control of overall rebar usage and minimising rebar waste.

Mr K. K. Jagadish (Managing Director of CADS India) commented; "Quicker turnaround of high quality bar bending schedules (BBS) and drawings equals quicker and higher returns for developers! This reduces the financial risk for developers and increases confidence in the ability of the construction industry to deliver high quality projects, to budget and on schedule."

An example of this in action is Sobha Developers, headquartered in Bangalore, which is a renowned name in the industry for luxurious real estate projects in India and in the Middle East. Sobha Developers began its first landmark project in Chennai with the Sobha Meritta development. This luxury gated community, spread across 6 acres of greenery, consists of 556 elegantly crafted apartments divided into 5 spacious blocks. Sobha wanted to start servicing the site with BBS for the first time, with the key challenge of ensuring accuracy and frugal consumption of reinforcement steel.

Mr. Rajesh Shirakol, (Sobha Developers Senior Vice President - Structures, Design & Engineering) commented; "The RebarCAD software has helped us to speed up construction and we were able to achieve a reduction in the wastage of bars. The site has appreciated the BBS to a great extent, as we never did BBS before Sobha Meritta."
