 Bauma 2016…

Bauma is a renowned international trade fair for construction machinery, building material and mining machines, construction vehicles and equipment that is held every three years at Messe München. 

The last event held in 2013 attracted a total of 3,420 exhibitors (1,346 from Germany and 2,074 from abroad) from 57 countries, who covered 570,000 square metres of exhibition space. Over 530,000 visitors from 200 countries visited the fair, setting a new attendance record in the process. 

This year the organization is expecting over 3,400 exhibitors and more than half a million visitors. Cranes rising high into the sky and gigantic machinery - that’s the familiar and exciting skyline of bauma. But in the shade of all the XXL lifting gear and heavyweight mining machinery, this world-leading trade fair has many, much smaller, but equally innovative products and solutions to interest trade visitors.

 Hitachi
Hitachi Construction Machinery ( Europe ) NV (HCME) will display the ZX135US-5 short reach front (SRF) excavator at Bauma. Developed in Japan , it has been designed and engineered to meet the specific needs of European owners and operators.

The medium excavator offers an exceptional performance in confined spaces, with a variety of features focusing on productivity, durability, comfort and safety, and easy maintenance.

More compact than a conventional excavator, the ZX135US-5 SRF is ideal for tunnelling projects where space is limited, but can be well used for Demolition purposes also. This is due to its short-tail swing radius, and short boom and arm. It can be easily lowered into position on sites below or well above ground level, using a crane. Lifting brackets are provided as standard on the boom and counterweight. It is also easy to transport, with an overall length of 5,270mm and height of 2,940mm.

The short boom and arm of the ZX135US-5 SRF, and a reinforced bucket linkage, enables it to be fitted with attachments that are suitable for larger 20-tonne machines, including crushers and breakers. This enhances the performance of the excavator for challenging sites.

The durability of the front attachment has been enhanced to protect it from falling objects. Cylinders are located under the boom and arm, and an integrated cylinder guard on the arm protects the bucket cylinder. Piping is positioned on the left to protect it from debris and is also convenient to access in tight spaces.

The high-spec ROPS pressurized cab offers exceptional comfort and safety during long shifts. Excellent all-round visibility with help from a rear-view camera, user-friendly controls including a large multifunctional LCD monitor, and expanded leg room, contribute to a comfortable working environment for operators.

Like all Hitachi Zaxis excavators, the ZX135US-5 SRF is easy to maintain. For convenient cleaning, an exterior dustproof net protects the air conditioning condenser and fuel cooler from clogging, and the radiator has an easy-to-open upper cover. The muffler filter and surrounding area can also be easily accessed for cleaning by a window in the engine cover.

Martin Visser, HCME Product Sales Representative Special Equipment, says: “The ZX135US-5 SRF is an extremely powerful machine for its compact size, and will be a valuable addition to any fleet. It works particularly well in tandem with excavators using clamshell telescopic arms, on projects below ground level.”

“We are looking forward to presenting this model to visitors at Bauma. It’s a typical example of how Hitachi listens to the needs of its customers, and develops machines with the aim of revolutionising the market.”

 Kiesel
For more than 55 years Kiesel is a partner for application-specific solutions. In addition to the new machines, the range now also includes Used machines.

On more than 2,000 m2 Kiesel will present at Bauma 2016 numerous developments and innovations one of them of course the KMC (Kiesel Multi Carrier) products.   


For Demolition this means it will show a machine that will be very versatile, offering it with a unique hydraulic boom change system, so changing booms will only take less than a minute
. Very handy when you know it's not only High Reach Booms that are available. One machine can be converted into more than ten other kind of machines in only minutes, making you money because you don't have to buy them all, and bring them all to the jobside. The message here is; one machine "that starts by breaking up the old building, digging the new foundations, and help building the new!"  

 Volvo
Volvo thinks BIG at Bauma. Emphasizing long term confidence in the market, visitors to this year’s Bauma 2016 exhibition in Munich will see Volvo Construction Equipment unveil several new flagship products - including the largest machines the company has ever made.    

While much of the company’s presence at Bauma 2016 is still a closely-guarded secret what is abundantly clear is the confidence with which the company is continuing to develop innovative, productive machines that help customers thrive in today’s ultra-competitive business. In fact, productivity is the key message of the show, under the banner of ‘Building Tomorrow’ alongside customers.

At Bauma 2016 we can expect a machine out of its new E-series HRD line-up. But the biggest news is the EC 950E excavator. We have seen the field-follow machine for many years and Bauma 2016 is likely going to be the place were Volvo will officially
unveil this flagship. For many years the EC700 was the biggest machine available, but for some customers, especially for mining, this machine was considered too light. It is likely that this EC 950E will be a great carrier as HRD machine, offering a machine that can extend its HRD line-up to 40-45m.


 Liebherr
The motto "Be Part of Something Bigger" invites visitors from all over the world to experience the trade fair at the Liebherr stand at Bauma 2016 At the 2016 Bauma trade fair from April 11 - 17, the Liebherr Group is showcasing many new and further developed products from every area of its extensive range of construction machines, mobile and crawler cranes, material handling technology, mining, as well as components, on a total display area of more than 14,000 m².

Intermat 2015 was the place were Liebherr revealed its first of many new HRD excavators. The new R960 Demolition was put on display there. This R 960 Demolition crawler excavator supersedes the previous model, the R 954 C Demolition, and provides working heights of up to 33m. With the R 960, tool attachments with a weight of up to 3.5 tonnes can be used and a high break-out force can be achieved. What is more, increased tool weights with greater reach enhances productivity.

Included in the 90 tonnes R 960’s standard equipment is the Liebherr Demolition Control System (LDC), which won the innovation award at Intermat 2015.
The system gives the operator information about the precise position of the demolition tool and thereby safeguards the stability of the excavator. The position of the tool is displayed in colour and in real time on the touchscreen, along with the tilt angle of the machine. This provides the operator with real-time information about what movements are permitted. In this way, it is possible to minimize the probability of human error impairing the stability of the machine. Liebherr is currently the only manufacturer in the market that offers this system.

Bauma 2016 will be the place where it will show its second new HRD model the R950 Demolition. This machine will replace the old R944 C HRD model. Its specifications will likely be similar to that of its bigger brother offering a tool weight of up to 3.5 tonnes and a high break-out force.

We can expect both machines on Bauma 2016, because at the other end of Liebherr’s impressive stand the 3rd sold R960 Demolition will be displayed. The machine was bought by FWA Fischer and will be displayed at the Nagel-Gruppe stand, right  in front of its new "little" R950 Demolition brother.


 Caterpillar  
Caterpillar and its German dealer, Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH, will exhibit a suite of technologies, services and equipment at Bauma 2016 under the theme “Built for It.” In display space totaling more than 8200 square meters, the company will showcase safety, productivity and equipment management solutions, as well as more than 60 Cat® products, a large selection of work tools and a full complement of dealer-delivered support services—all designed to make customers more successful.

Highlight at Bauma 2016 will be the Cat 340F UHD. We can not tell the exact details of this new High Reach Demolition Excavator as it is still highly secret, but development and manufacturing takes place completely in-house at Caterpillar again.

Caterpillar stopped its partnership with Soerma TP for its Dem UHD line-up in
Europe last year. And the cooperation with Jewell for the Apex UHD line-up for the North-American market stopped even before it was officially announced.

With its special application factory in Poland, Caterpillar now can offer its dealers and end-users the Cat quality it wants, and simplify the maintenance and service around the globe as all parts and designs are available for all its dealers. This makes service and warranty much easier.

The mining area of the exhibit will showcase the 140t Cat 6015B hydraulic mining shovel, optimized to load the Cat 773, 775 and 777 trucks in four, five and seven passes, respectively. But many end-users waited for this follow-up of the 5110 for some serious conversion. Some already being ordered to be converted to extreme LR, HRD, and Heavy Duty Triple.

 Kobelco
Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe (KCME) has announced it will showcase its new SK400DLC-9 building demolition machine for the first time at the Bauma exhibition in Germany
next month.

The company plans to follow this with test marketing during the rest of the year before putting the product on sale in Europe in 2017.

Features included boom connection ensuring quick disassembly and reassembly; side-mounted attachment piping which is accessible from the ground; reduced height of ultra-long attachments when collapsed for transportation; and improved structure fatigue strength.

 Komatsu
The PC490LC-10 High Reach Demolition (HRD) excavator, Komatsu’s latest addition to its highly successful demolition range, will be presented at bauma 2016 with a new adjustable undercarriage.

The PC490LC-10 HRD was first displayed at Intermat 2015 and also received the 2015 award for Innovation of the Year from the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC). The machine brings the benefits of the Dash 10 range into the specialized demolition industry and is ideally suited for the demolition of heavy industrial structures. This original Komatsu factory equipment was developed over 2,5 years and has received full OEM quality assurance after passing stringent performance tests.

The stability of the machine is significantly enhanced by the new hydraulically adjustable wide gauge undercarriage which features longer trackframes than the standard undercarriage. Including 700mm triple grouser shoes, the width of the new hydraulically adjustable undercarriage can be varied, in minutes, from the working width of 4000mm to only 3000mm, improving ease of transportation where width restrictions apply. Specified with the new undercarriage, the machine’s maximum operating weight is increased to just over 70t.

“We are delighted that the PC490LC-10 HRD machine has already been acknowledged by the industry through winning the NFDC’s Plant Innovation of the Year 2015 award and by appearing on the shortlist for the World Demolition Awards 2015,” says Simon Saunders, Product Manager for Working Gear Excavators. “Our demolition machine developments are driven by customer feedback and we believe that the new hydraulic undercarriage specification demonstrates our continued commitment to bringing all of the benefits of an original factory developed product to demolition customers.”

Weighing in at 70.250 kg, the PC490LC-10 HRD is powered by a Komatsu SAA6D125E-6A engine with a flywheel horsepower of 270 kW (362 HP) and is compliant with EU Stage IIIB emissions regulations.

The latest KOMTRAXTM telematics, and the Komatsu Care® complimentary maintenance program, offer top fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime. 

Designed for demolition

Designed, manufactured, tested and supported by Komatsu, the PC490LC-10 HRD excavator is purposely built for demolition work: it has a large working range with a maximum working height of 28 m. The large diameter boom cylinders ensure the operator has maximum hydraulic power at all times for total control, even at extreme reach. Its demolition tool capacity of 3,35t at 16,5m forward reach improves project time and helps to reduce machine loading.

The heavy duty medium reach demolition specification allows the use of full size 5t demolition tools at a height of up to 17,4 m, giving the new machine the capability to tackle heavy demolition work at medium height.

The PC490LC-10 HRD is compliant with latest EU474 Annex G regulations which govern machines used for cutting buildings.

Enhanced safety features
The new working range indicator system does not interfere with the control of the machine. It gives full colour, real time indication of the precise position of each section of the work equipment, to ensure the operator is fully aware of the available working range. The system includes memory settings for 15 attachments (with operator selectable names) and takes into account the inclination of the base machine for calculation of the available working range. The system is effective for both high reach and medium reach demolition, automatically detecting which equipment configuration is installed at engine start up.

The cab is specifically designed for the new high reach demolition excavator. The front window and roof window incorporate high impact protective glass compliant with EN356 Grade P5A. The front guard, side hinged for easy window cleaning, complies with ISO10262 Level 2 falling object test requirements.

Enhanced operator environment
The PC490LC-10 HRD operator cab is mounted on a Komatsu original tilting mechanism, the tilt angle being infinitely adjustable between 0 and 30o, with convenient tilt angle control through joystick-mounted thumb switches.

The fully air suspended operator control station incorporates side consoles mounted together with the high back, fully adjustable seat, with standard-fit heating for improved comfort.

The cab provides a comfortable and quiet work environment where operators can maximise their productivity. It gains strength from a reinforced tubular skeleton framework. Viscous damper mounts lower vibration levels, further enhancing fine control and reducing operator fatigue. Along with two 12 volt ports, an auxiliary input has been added to connect an MP3 player or other device that uses a standard auxiliary.

Convenient maintenance and serviceability
Newly designed work equipment stands with integrated access platforms cut down the time taken to change the configuration of the machine and significantly increase the safety of the changeover process. Tie down lugs are provided allowing the high reach equipment to be transported while located in the equipment stands, improving ease of transportation.

The PC490LC-10 HRD provides easy service access that reduces costly downtime. Routine service points are quickly reachable from ground level and handrails surround the accessible areas of the upper structure for easier and safer checking and maintenance. The radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are mounted side by side, making it simpler to carry out maintenance and service when required, while the air conditioning condenser is hinged to allow even easier access. Access steps are provided in all naturally convenient positions to allow safe and quick access to the engine bay.

The machine is equipped with the exclusive Komatsu EMMS (Equipment Management Monitoring System), which has enhanced diagnostic features that give operators and technicians greater monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities. EMMS also continuously monitors all critical systems and preventative maintenance, and provides assistance to minimise diagnosis and repair time.

EU Stage IIIB / EPA Tier 4 Interim emission certified engine
The Komatsu SAA6D125E-6A engine uses an advanced electronic control system to manage airflow rate, fuel injection, combustion parameters, and aftertreatment functions to optimise performance, reduce emissions and provide advanced diagnostic capability.
As a leader in hydraulic technology, Komatsu developed a hydraulically actuated Komatsu Variable Geometry Turbocharger (KVGT) and an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve, resulting in up to 5% reduction in fuel consumption, as well as longer component life.

The passive/active Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) is designed to function primarily in its highly efficient “passive” mode and oxidises most trapped particulates with no need for operator control and no interruption to machine operations. Based on exclusive Komatsu technology, this regeneration system keeps the operator aware of its status and has a manual override integrated into the monitor panel.
