Portafill will make their debut appearance at Excon and Mr. Rafferty is excited by the prospect and said, ‘we are looking forward to our participation at the show. We have a well-established products range and a good reputation throughout Europe for manufacturing reliable, innovative products. The compact nature of our machines is well suited to export markets where we can keep the cost of shipping to a minimum. Adding he said, our goal from Excon is to meet as many end users and potential dealers as possible. We want to establish Portafill as a known brand within India and are looking for potential partners.’
Portafill has been designing and manufacturing quality products for over 18 years. Incorporated in 1993, the company first started making a trench filling device. The business shortly moved on to the design of mobile screens with the launch of the 2000 range of equipment. This highly successful model was the primary product for the company for a number of years, giving high production and reliable use for its many satisfied customers. Their compact design permitted two x 2000 machines to be transported in a 40 foot container, keeping haulage costs to a minimum and proving a huge hit with dealers and customers.
A focus on research and development has seen the growth in the product range in recent years. In 2003, the 3000 range of mobile screens with on board conveyors was introduced in the market. These compact, strong screens proved a great success with product being delivered to every continent in the world. 2009 saw the launch of two new products. The 4000 and 5000 machines complemented the previous Portafill ranges and continued the high quality design of their predecessors. Portafill also offers a range of wheel mounted and tracked stacking conveyors.
The Portafill brand has become synonymous with reliable, compact, efficient screening and that reputation will continue in the years ahead. Continued product development will focus on designing a range of equipment that meets the needs of the large number of contractors and producers that wish to own a compact screen without sacrificing output or product quality. The company has ambitious plans for product development with 3 new machines planned for 2012.
A new piece of pioneering work of the weiler GmbH meets an absolute need of the market. The first mobile weiler hollow core system now enables location-independent set up for the implementation of even remote projects. Through this new innovation, weiler has offered a totally new perspective and opportunities in the design, production and expansion to the construction industry.
As a German family business with tradition and many years of experience, weiler GmbH is distinguished and set itself apart by its pioneering spirit. Through continuous evolvement, the initial machine building company has become a worldwide supplier of turnkey plants for precast concrete products. Today, weiler not only provides complete precast concrete plants, but also everything from one source: from the processing of raw materials to storage of finished products.
Production of weiler precast concrete products is already undertaken worldwide and has over 200 plants. These find use in private housing as well as commercial and industrial building construction and high-rise buildings. They include among others: Ceiling systems, e.g. Hollow Core panels, ceiling beams, etc; Load-bearing and none load-bearing wall panels, solid, hollow or as a sandwich; Products for concrete frame-work e.g. Columns, beams etc and Precast foundations, piles, lintels, etc.
The latest development is now the unique technical concept of a fully mobile plant for the manufacture of hollow slabs, that can also be used for large projects in a flexible and mobile manner, thus production can take place at the building site itself.
The advantages are obvious: build-up within 5-10 days, with minimal preparation and investment. Within a short time, a fully equipped production plant for hollow concretes labs is locally available, allowing a capacity of 120-1000 m2 per day.
With the development of the worldwide first mobile plant through weiler GmbH, the entry into the Hollow Core market has now been paved for many young as well as established construction companies. Through the flexibility of a very interesting option, the actual plant site will in future play a sub-ordinate role.
Explaining about the product and its application areas she said: "Dredgers are widely used across a broad range of sectors ranging from port infrastructure creation, aggregate, ore and precious metal mining, dam desiltation and land reclamation. The modular design of ITALDRAGHE dredgers means that they can be easily dismounted and transported to even the most remote inland locations. In today’s world prompt high quality after sales service is a must. Our specialized local team in India (trained in Italy) is well qualified to provide such service in direct collaboration with ITALDRAGHE."
Mr. Pradip A. Sawant, who is representing ITALDRAGHE in India, said: "Given its specialist sector expertise, ITALDRAGHE has been already called upon to participate in several major government infrastructure projects in south of the country. The full range of ITALDRAGHE products is finding openings in the Indian market too. There is, for example, a huge demand for cutter suction dredgers for coastal and inland waterway projects; key dredger components are increasingly being requested by local dredger builders looking to incorporate European technology into their vessels; plus numerous local shipyards are seeking reliable suppliers of propulsion units, such as rudder propellers and bow thrusters," he added.
ITALDRAGHE dredging equipment, and its dredging pumps in particular, are used for a wide range of applications in the construction industry. A large number of aggregate mines use its pumps for excavating building aggregates (sand, gravel, etc) from open in-water quarries as well as from the sea. Its dredging equipment also play a fundamental role in land creation and back fill/new land reclamation projects.
As ITALDRAGHE produces all of its products in-house, maintaining full control over the entire manufacturing process, it is able to guarantee spare part availability at all times.
Talking on the specialization of the company Dr. Sarah said: "ITALDRAGHE SpA first started producing cutter suction dredgers back in the 1950s. Over the last half a century, due to the technological advances and its extensive worldwide dredging experience (in Europe, South and Central America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East) the company has grown and developed considerably. Its ever-expanding product range includes cutter suction dredgers, booster stations, pontoons, dredging pumps, backflow pipelines and riddling plants. In addition to its latest MASTER DREDGER range, ITALDRAGHE also manufactures custom-made dredgers designed on the basis of precise client requirements. Furthermore, it specializes in providing complete solution packages for specific dredging projects as well as supplying bow thrusters, dredger cutters, pumps and rudder propellers."

Nawa’s Perspective on CSE Industry
The very need for millions of tons of road base materials, concrete mixes and asphalt mixes has pitch forked the need of Crushing & Screening Equipment (CSE) into the forefront of the Construction Equipment (CE) Industry.
CSE convert hard rocks into aggregates. The machinery used for mineral sizing and hard rock being mostly the same - the manufacturers, both multinational and domestic players, of CSE have turned their entire focus on aggregate/quarry industry. Stone crushing which hitherto looked down as low end business has now prominently occupied the same status as that of CE sector. The roadside 30-50 TPH crusher plants have been transformed into 300-500-900 TPH high-tech aggregate plants.
The CSE manufacturing sector has grown multifold. Indigenous players have developed new and high capacity primary jaw crushers, secondary & tertiary hydraulic cone crushers, horizontal shaft impact crushers, vibrating screening equipment and complete plant installations to meet ever increasing demand for aggregates for the national highways projects, state road projects, dam construction, airports, sea ports, urban infrastructure development, power projects and commercial RMC plants.
Multinational manufacturers have had a field day and continue to flourish. Many of them have setup their manufacturing base here as India will be their major source of business. Many new players have set foot on Indian shores from all corners of the world, and numbers are increasing foreseeing a boom period of much larger scale in 2010-20 and beyond.
The CSE sector too has matured and is able to produce crushing and screening equipment to world standards and compete with the multinationals.
NAWA leads the pack in the Indigenous CSE Manufacturers segment for manufacturing low to very high end capacities.
CSE Industry Demand Forecast
NAWA seeks to take a lion share of this CSE market forecast.
CSE Industry Sector Forecast
For the CSE Sector -
NAWA seeks to introduce the entire range of equipment (from low to the highest capacities) as per the demand of the CSE market. While the foreign competition is a risk factor, NAWA is better placed with its indigenous technologies to service the need of CSE equipment with equivalent or more quality at much lower prices than the foreign counterparts.
Expatiating on their launch plan he said that we will launch a mid size compact and advance machine for Indian concrete product industry on the coming show. This machine is very suitable to Indian conditions with advanced but also streamlined and simple technology, operator-friendly features with semi-automatic handling system. It has been developed in two years time, after talking to many Indian companies, understanding their requirement, we assure all of them that it will match their expectations, he stated adding that Rekers GmbH will continue to support Indian companies for their customized requirements, in the future as well.
Further he said, Rekers had interacted with lots of visitors in the past shows and therefore we have come up with this new machine RS1KV, which we are going to launch in this show. Since the presentation of our first RS1KV machine in Germany in August, we have seen very good response from India. The company is quite confident about the sales projections of this newly launched machine, he added.
Wacker Neuson Equipt. Pvt. Ltd.
On the company's product launch plan, he said, we have already introduced a series of state-of-the-art concrete vibrators with a built-in inverter. In addition to being the inventor of this unique vibrator series, we have incorporated an additional built-in safety that carries a world patent. We have also introduced a series of concrete (shutter) vibrators in India to suit the various construction formwork that are becoming increasingly popular in India. The formwork in conjunction with the Wacker Neuson shutter vibrators assure reduced construction time especially for multi-storey structures.
At Excon, we are demonstrating a new series of reversible vibratory plates that assure contractors the highest compaction densities with the minimum number of passes. Additionally, we are promoting our Light Towers in a concentrated manner he added.
Elaborating the plans further Mr. Jayasekera said, Wacker Neuson expects maximum exposure of its products and services to a concentration of highly professional customers during the event.

Northern Ireland: Global engineering excellence in materials handling serving the Indian market
Its engineering legacy has changed the world, from Harry Ferguson and the development of the first agricultural tractor to John Dunlop, the inventor of the pneumatic tyre, the tradition lives on through our world-class cluster of materials handling companies.
Today, machinery manufactured in Northern Ireland is used by customers worldwide for applications as diverse as iron ore mining in India, road construction in South America, diamond exploration in South Africa, sand washing in Qatar, screening demolition waste in Russia and recycling in Saudi Arabia.
Much of the technology within the global mobile screening industry was, in fact, pioneered in Northern Ireland. A history of innovation stretching back almost 50 years, has led to the development of an extensive cluster of successful export-led companies.
Among international corporations now manufacturing machinery in Northern Ireland are industry leaders Terex, Caterpillar, Sandvik and NACCO, the latter producing Hyster and Yale forklifts in Northern Ireland for customers in key global markets. The Terex Corporation, which has a manufacturing operation in India , includes the Powerscreen brand, a globally recognised name in mobile screening and crushing machinery.
Additionally, there are many indigenous Northern Ireland companies operating internationally and they are all entering into India to take advantage of growing opportunities in the region as well as supplying Indian construction and mining companies working in third markets, from North Africa to South America.
CDE Asia, with its base in Kolkata, is probably the best-known indigenous materials handling company from Northern Ireland in India. Other smaller and fast emerging companies, bred from the innovation within the sector and its exposure to international markets, are supplying products ranging from rock breakers and block-making to conveyors and port handling equipment.
FG Wilson, the Caterpillar subsidiary, is Europe's biggest volume manufacturer of diesel and gas powered electricity generators for prime, emergency and standby power. The company also has a manufacturing operation in Pondicherry, India.
The sector is also supported by an extensive supply chain manufacturing specialist fabrications and components and offering vast experience in engineering design. Two world class universities, Queen's University Belfast and the University of Ulster, along with a network of further education colleges, many of which have engineering centres, work closely with the industry on R&D, new product development and lean manufacturing techniques using state-of-the-art computer aided design, as well as in programmes to expand the skills and knowledge of managers and workers.
Northern Ireland, therefore, offers a comprehensive range of machinery for materials handling operations worldwide and has unrivalled knowledge, skills and expertise in developing efficient, cost effective and competitive solutions which regularly exceed the requirements of customers in global markets. The sector continues to invest in innovation and maintaining its global competitiveness and we are always open to welcoming new investors seeking to tap into this exciting and global cluster.
The government of Northern Ireland, through Invest Northern Ireland and its trade promotion activities, has been helping the cluster to do business in India for over 20 years. Since we opened our business development office in Mumbai (and soon in Bangalore) in 2007, we have supported clients at events such as IMME, BC India and Excon.
During both the events, it will be possible to see the BF 90.3 close-up, an indispensable piece of equipment for the modern concept of site work.
The quality and technology of MB products, the attention the company pays to its clients and the positive spirit with which MB has invested in terms of personnel and resources have conquered not only India but also the whole of Asia.
The company from Vicenza in fact always believes that this emerging market, in which the concepts of sustainability, recycling and saving are constantly being affirmed with greater vigour, could contribute in a significant way to its growth, consolidating the politics and the commercial identity it has indeed demonstrated over the last 10 years.

Technology can Streamline RMC Business
The preparatory measures include streamlining production and business processes, finding permanent solutions for productivity and quality enhancement, material management and inventory, data security & performance analyses, inducting personnel and defining roles, fixing responsibilities and setting up processes, improving efficiency and setting up infrastructure, identifying credible vendors and standardizing products and solutions and the list is apparently endless.
A RMC CEO has to face numerous challenges to manage the business effectively. Rapidly growing customer demands for increased supply and quality assurance, product consistency and timely delivery is adding to the pressure put by an already dynamic industry.
Now is the time which warrants the business owners to be well-informed about the entire range of benefits that automation could offer them. Since the day of manual mixing of concrete to present times of complete automation, concrete industry has traveled great distance. During this tenure, process automation has made significant contribution in propelling the industry growth. With semi automatic production in early days, followed by the use of microprocessor controlled devices, then by a genre of PLC based fully automatic systems, followed by incorporation of SCADA in batching systems; this technology too has evolved considerably.
Production issues:A good batching system built on right technology platform can offer truly effective solutions. High quality concrete batching systems like that of IDS have revolutionized concrete automation. IDS product philosophy was always steps ahead than its counterparts. IDS products have successfully delivered higher productivity, greater accuracy, and better quality concrete at each batch. Specific IDS products have effectively resolved many production related issues, which even international systems failed to do; and thus, maximized efficiency to satisfy decision makers.
Using a batching system just to streamlining production is like a job half done. We really can derive a bunch of benefits from a good batching system. It should provide for plant and personnel safety, reduce plant wear and tear, reduce break down time, and be able to store & protect your data and easy generation of production, consumption and analytical reports.
The significance of a good batching system in effectively managing production process is unquestionable. Now, the industry decision makers have to try identifying an appropriate batching system which will resolve all the production issues and achieve benchmark in productivity, quality and performance.
Business issues:Decision makers find the software features like creating and maintaining production data, creating production and consumption reports and generating reports for invoicing highly beneficial. A business solution, which can process, monitor and control entire site operations is the urgent need of the today's RMC industry CEO.
In addition to implementing technology solutions to managing production, CEOs have to identify and apply technology intervention to facilitate business process management. A CEO definitely needs to improve business efficiency by defining and automating the business process and bring absolute control all business activities.
In fact, concrete business is heading towards centralized monitoring and control. The decision makers want absolute control of his business and would wish to centrally monitor and analyze business activities across the country. The spread and complexities of this business need a powerful tool to help decision makers across departments and hierarchy.
IDS introduces a cutting edge technology solution to empower the CEO. IDS has integrated new age automation with IT realm to offer world of imaginative solutions specifically designed for RMC industry.
Without going for expensive ERP solutions, a CEO can still get the benefit of the expensive ERP platforms and aim for more.
IDS's new BIZ solutions can connect decision makers to each RMC site and provide real time account of site activities. As a business head by choosing IDS Batch solutions, the industry CEO is empowered greatly as he gets the real time status of his organizational activities on his finger tip.
Thus, by adapting two diverse technology solutions offered by IDS, RMC industry CEOs can achieve complete control of their businesses.

Vollert Anlagenbau GmbH, Germany
He further revealed that AMW is an Associate Sponsor at the Excon 2011. We believe that this is likely to be one of the biggest exhibitions for the construction segment. With a strong focus on infrastructure development by the Government of India, we are sure that there would be a much larger participation from the international players and also from most Indian companies in this domain, added Mr. Anirudh.
We would showcase our entire manufacturing capabilities in a wide range of heavy fabrication to the domestic and international manufacturers of construction equipment as most of the leading OEMs would participate in this trade fair and everybody is scouting for opportunities, he added.
Talking on company's offerings he said, in the construction equipment space, we manufacture aggregates such as main frames, track frames, arms, booms and buckets for hydraulic excavators. Likewise, for backhoe loaders, we manufacture aggregates like chassis, boom, arm, slider frame, axle, loader and hoe; for front end loaders, aggregates such as front frames, rear frames, lift arm, loader bucket, oscillation cradle and dump levers are manufactured. The company also manufactures aggregates for material handlers. In addition, we also manufacture trailers such as skeletal, flat and semi-bed trailers; cement bag carriers, coil carriers, and fifth wheel couplings.
While speaking on the development of the company he elaborated, on a vision of being one of the most admired organizations with a significant global presence; the two brothers, R K Behera and S K Behera, scripted the story of the RSB Transmissions (I) Limited.
He said further, our corporate office is in Pune and over the years, we have grown into an organization with multiple manufacturing setups. Currently, the company has 12 manufacturing plants spread over 6 locations in India, and one each in USA, Belgium Mexico.
Our Belgian company, RSB Transmissions Belgium NV, which is situated in the city of Tessenderlo, is engaged in the production of aggregates for excavators, off-highway machines and windmill which are similar to the products manufactured in our Jamshedpur, Dharwad and Chennai Plants, he added.
Explaining about Excon he said it is an event that is dedicated to the construction industry.

About their presence and expansion plans for India he elaborated, we are present in the Indian market since 2007 when we participated in Excon for the first time. In the meantime, we have a good number of OEM customers together with a distributor organization operating nearly all over India. The increasing demand from Indian OEMS of reliable hydraulic components and systems for the internal and export markets gives us good opportunities to introduce our products of highest technological level. Further he said, it is absolutely necessary to further enlarge and instruct our distributors in India to be nearer to our customers, also the OEMS, for technical service and assistance as well as supply of spare parts, if necessary. We are working on this and can see improvement achieved by our distributors who put their best efforts on our behalf.
Arrows Machinery - Australia
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 Excon 2011.
Officine Meccaniche EME
About the company he said, our company started to produce mechanical transmission in 1962. Actually our main market is Europe but we are also getting overwhelming responses from other European markets such as South Africa and Brazil. In China as well some agricultural vehicles are working with our applications. Our products are suitable for many different applications including industrial, agricultural etc, he added.
FAE Group S.p.A
Elucidating his point, he said that we will need to focus on specific projects/applications and explain in detail the productivity and cost-effectiveness of using the FAE industrial mulchers, road stabilizers, profilers and rock crushers. Due to the lack of high HP prime movers in India, tractors for example are only manufactured/sold up to 75 HP, we need to introduce complete packages which is another challenge.
Explaining the functionality of its machines he stated, FAE machines are aimed at contractors or large project based organizations which need an efficient and ecological way to clear land from vegetation and standing trees of any height and size, from stones and rocky reefs. Moreover, we aim at contractors who need to refurbish gravel roads, farm to market roads, municipal, asphalt and bitumen roads. FAE rock crushers, soil stabilizers, asphalt grinders can recycle rocks up to 700 mm in diameter, rocky reefs and asphalt in order to create a very homogeneous mix of gravel stones and soil. This can be compacted to 100% compaction levels. Cement, lime/chemical binders can be added, also through the spraying systems on our machines, to obtain a strong base for heavy traffic, without the need to use traditional capital intensive road machinery commonly used by road contractors.
As FAE implements can be driven by agricultural tractors, excavators, skid steers, etc., it seems natural that our development should come through a network of existing machinery dealers. However, the novelty and little knowledge of our technology by the Indian market make this a complicated road. We believe the introduction must first be done by means of specific projects and, once the first case studies have been publicized, a second phase of market penetration will begin, he said, adding that FAE Group also manufactures dedicated Prime Movers up to 600 HP with crawler tracks which can be used in forestry as well as in road refurbishing and mining operations. The mining industry might create interesting opportunities for FAE technology, especially in refurbishing and improving access and haul roads in order to make the operations smoother and save money on dump truck tires.
Talking about the functioning of the company he said, Elkon is one of the leading manufacturers of Stationary concrete batching plants, Mobile concrete batching plants, Compact type concrete batching plants, Trailer type concrete pumps, Concrete recycling plants and Mixers: pan, planetary and twinshaft and assures its high quality with TUV ISO 9001:2008 (German), AQA 9001:2008 (American) Quality Management Certificates and CE, GOST-R, UKRSERPO Certificates.
On company's sales service support he stated that our aim is to give immediate after sales service and spare parts support to our customers all around the world and to provide customer satisfaction at the maximum level with innovative solutions, reliability and quality in concrete batching plants. Up to now, we have manufactured and installed over 1400 concrete batching plants in over 75 countries and have more than 20 exclusive representatives to reach its customers immediately for spare parts and after sales support services.

Weckenmann already its a presence in India, which is reflected in an existing customer base as well as a continuous market cultivation through our mother company itself as well as our Indian agent. Since the precast industry in India is still in an emerging phase, Weckenmann would like to support the industry's needs by providing efficient and cost sensitive start up factories, which can be expanded in the future along with this industry's further development.
The precast industry is not a "mass product" but an industry based on larger investment amounts with individual factories. Nevertheless, it is important to be well-represented in the market and to be close to our customers. Weckenmann follows a double approach by being represented inside India through an active agent who can keep in close contact with our customer base. In addition, however, we feel it is important to be present continuously through regular visits from Germany. Weckenmann guarantees a strong after sales support 24/7. The availability of spare parts is ensured by using key wear components from internationally reputed companies which can easily be acquired by our customers anywhere in India.
AKG is already well-known to the Indian market for appropriate segment. AKG's focused product is plate & bar type brazed coolers made of Aluminum which will be fully indigenized in 2 to 3 years. The focus of our company's participation in Excon 2011 will be to demonstrate its prominent presence in the growing infrastructure requirements of the country and also to be able to cater to the various requirement of plate & bar type Aluminium coolers for the appropriate list of construction machinery OEMs.

In fact, we are promoting our entire product range in India right from the small push button type the Planar C4, a single-handed remote control with 8 two step push buttons and 5 one step push buttons up to our joystick systems the Planar NL SMJ Series, a console remote control with various remarks with max. 3 dual-axis-proportional joysticks or the HyPro series, a console remote control with various remarks with max 8 single-axis-proportional joysticks. We believe in high quality after sales support service and a good availability of quality spare parts."
Trench shoring systems are installed for various works including Telecommunications, laying electric cables, Gas pipeline constructions, Water line constructions and also for laying of sewerage pipes. When we talk about shoring in general, there are differences such as horizontal shoring, mostly with wooden-planks or trench sheets and vertical shoring, mostly with shoring systems or trench sheets, interlocking type. SBH Shoring systems have significantly higher safe working loads than conventional shoring solutions and have less distortion. With its fast installation and removal, the SBH Shoring is an extremely economical working method.
Moreover, SBH shoring systems offer advantages like quick construction progress, thus the loads are reduced to a minimum of time, effective use of expensive machines like excavators and cranes, low costs, as SBH systems can be used up to 1.000 times with a product life expectancy of about 6 to 8 years. Last but not the least, handling the SBH shoring is very easy. On top, SBH ensures permanent support and training of your site staff on a short notice.
