Bauma update!17 November 2022
The behemoth that is Bauma is almost here. We take a latest look at what’s on offer…
WHAT?: Bauma 2022
WHEN?: Monday 24 – Sunday 30 October 2022
WHERE?: Messe Munchen, Munich, Germany
The largest equipment show on earth returns to Munich this October. Having originally been scheduled to take place in April the new date seemed to work for most, with Bauma saying 97 percent of exhibitor space was confirmed by January this year.
With the announcement that Bauma China has now been cancelled there is more pressure than ever, for the organisers (and some of the exhibitors), to ensure Bauma Munich is a success.
“In the personal conversations we have with exhibitors and visitors, we hear one thing over and over again,” said Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München. “They are really looking forward to having face-to-face discussions and, of course, to experiencing the special atmosphere that only Bauma can create.”
Quite how this special atmosphere translates into sales will be key for many exhibitors, as the future of trade shows is under particular scrutiny at the moment. The balance between new working patterns, growing environmental awareness – particularly towards reducing air miles, and the ever-increasing cost of tradeshows set against the rising cost of living is still to be determined.
Yet with so many people finally ‘reuniting’ post Covid this elusive buzz should be palpable. And although it’s not quite the official Octoberfest we’re sure plenty of beer will be drunk and contracts subsequently pledged!
On the following pages are some of the exhibitor stands that may be of interest. A full list can be found on the Bauma website: www.bauma.de
Spain-headquartered Alba- Macrel Group will present a selection of rack and pinion hoists for passengers and materials alongside steel reinforcing bars and light weight machinery.
France-headquartered AMCS will present its anti-collision, zoning, anemometer, lifting camera, site supervision and IoT lifting solutions. “After more than three years and a world pandemic, we are looking forward to meeting the whole cranes world again,” it said.
Experts from the company will also be able to explain the company’s full involvement with mixed-use building project the Thai Summit Tower (SMT), a 45-storey building in Bangkok, where its DCS 61-S anti-collision systems are being used.
German tower crane manufacturer AMS will be happy to explain to visitors about its range of AK flat-top cranes, which can be flexibly designed with boom lengths of 55 to 80 m and maximum load capacities of 6 to 20 t. AMS tower cranes are designed and produced in-house in Germany. Only the electronics development takes place in cooperation with the German company NTK Ingenieurbüro.

German truck crane manufacturer Böcker will use Bauma to launch its new electric AK 48e truck crane. According to Böcker the fully electric steel-aluminium truck crane can operate completely electrically in crane and platform mode, plus it can travel to the construction site powered exclusively by electricity utilising a Mercedes eActros.
Also on display will be other electric solutions – including its AK 37e truck crane, its AHK 36e trailer crane, and its Junior 24e inclined lift – all of which are powered by a 230 V electric motor.
This means they can now be powered by connection to a normal household socket enabling permanent electric operation on any building. The new developments operate with optimised consumption and require significantly less energy than comparable devices, says Böcker. Their strong battery capacity also ensures long self-sufficient use even without an external power supply. As a hybrid, the 230 V truck crane AK 37e can operate either in plug-in mode or use the truck's conventional PTO combustion engine for power supply.
Böcker will also be offering visitors to its stand platform rides in its AK 52 truck crane which has been converted into an aerial work platform that can carry up to six people.
In addition, the company’s Super-Lift LX-PM rack-and-pinion construction hoist and its Super-Lift MX-PM, both for personnel and materials, will be on display.

It is also available for design and manufacture of custom designed equipment. At Bauma it is sharing a stand with Mouvers.
Spanish tower crane manufacturer Comansa will launch a new luffing jib tower crane: the LCH300. The company says the new crane marks a milestone as its first ever hydraulic model.
It has a maximum load capacity of 16 tonnes and a modular jib with a reach of 25 to 60 metres, with configurations every five metres.
The crane can be assembled with 2.5 x 2.5m tower sections. It has a minimum working radius of four metres and a minimum radius of nine metres when out of service.
It has manual transmission combinations of 1T (direct pulling) and 2T. The maximum load capacity is 8t with the 1T configuration and 16t with the 2T configuration. The maximum load at the jib end is 3,400 and 3,150kg, respectively.
The luffing moves the jib and counter jib jointly by a hydraulic cylinder at the cathead and jib hinge assembly. The hydraulic pump unit is located on a movable platform in one piece.
From the cabin there is direct visibility of the 50kW (standard) or 65kW (optional) lifting mechanism. The Effi-Plus technology enables users to increase the speed of the lifting mechanism without affecting consumption, which allows loading cycles to be reduced, thereby improving the productivity of the crane.
The design of this new rotating part - jib, cathead and counter jib - as well as the mechanism, cabin and hydraulic unit platforms, optimises the transport of this model, which may be supplied by eight trucks or containers.
This new luffing jib crane from Comansa incorporates the Cube Cab (L or XL) with Split type air conditioning. The cabin platform, like the lifting and hydraulic unit platforms, can be transported in a single piece.
Comansa says now, with the incorporation of the LCH300 hydraulic model, the luffing mechanism is optimised to offer even greater performance and an efficient assembly, as well as reduction of the radius when out of service.

It retains its predecessor’s maximum capacity of 400 t and a main boom of 60 m but new innovations include an improved hydraulic system with faster flow to provide quicker operating speeds and smoother movement.
Also added to the new 400 t machine is the Crane Control System (CCS) and MAXbase variable outrigger positioning system.
Two additional Grove all-terrain cranes will be making their public debuts at the show. The 150 t GMK5150XL and 120 t GMK5120L five-axle cranes both launched at the end of 2021. The GMK5150XL has a 69 m its main boom and the GMK5120L offers 66 m of boom, plus a variety of counterweight configurations for greater flexibility.
In terms of tower cranes, two new models will be revealed at the show, with one each coming from the topless and luffing jib ranges. Alongside them will be the Potain MDT 489, which is also making its first public appearance since launching in 2021. It’s available in 20 t and 25 t versions, with each offering 80 m of jib.
From the self-erecting crane line, there will be two units. The Igo T 99 will make its public debut at Bauma 2022, having launched last year. Also on display will be a Potain Hup M 28-22. Capable of lifting 2.2 t, the unit is the only self-erecting crane that offers 28 m of jib and up to 31 m of working height within such compact transport
Manitowoc is also using Bauma to launch its Connect digital fleet management platform. Connect enables remote monitoring through an app-based system giving owners and operators the ability to view real-time crane information, receive alerts, exchange data, with further functionality to be added in the future.
Connect will initially be available on GMK all-terrain cranes produced from 2023. It will be offered on all new models and available to retrofit on cranes equipped with the CCS control system.
For Potain tower cranes, Connect will be offered as an option on new top-slewing and self-erecting cranes. In addition, it can be retrofitted on all CCS-equipped cranes. Potain will discontinue production of its older CraneSTAR Diag tool.
In addition to enhancing fleet management the system boosts sustainability, streamlines service and maintenance for users, and improves connectivity to cranes across smartphones, tablets, and laptops, Manitowoc claims. Optimised troubleshooting thanks to the real-time availability of crane information, allows remote technicians to quickly understand the status of the crane, with any error codes displayed through the app, Manitowoc says. The remote service team can then run root cause analysis and propose potential solutions without the delay of travel or on-site physical assistance.
In the future, Manitowoc plans to enable Connect to be embedded into the Building Information Management

USA-based Vita Inclinata Technologies, the maker of load stabilisation technology devices that utilise a system of powerful air thrusters and sensors to automatically stabilise loads, will bring demos and company experts to Bauma.
Vita says its flagship product, the Vita Load Navigator, is increasingly being adopted by crane companies to eliminate the use of taglines and make lifting operations more efficient, precise, and much safer.
Vita Industrial’s system uses an aviation sensor suited to sense position and motion and auto-matically stabilises loads, ensuring high-precision lifts in even the most challenging and windy environments. The Navigator captures over 1,000 data points per second and feeds the motion control engine to dynamically adjust to load sizes, crane movement, and environmental condi-tions.
Four independent electric thrusters pulse vectored air to reorient the load either autonomously, or by a user via the single-hand control pendant. See this month’s below the hook and future of remote controls features for more information.
Throughout the tradeshow, the company will be holding live demonstrations of the Vita Load Navigator, matched head-to-head against taglines, showing how load stabilization can increase efficiency, precision, and therefore, profitability for crane owners.
“Vita Industrial is proud to be a part of the Bauma international tradeshow for the first time,” said Caleb Carr, chairman and CEO of Vita Inclinata. “Crane companies around the world are learning how load stabilisation can drastically improve their crane operations. The Navigator can expand wind envelope charts, speed up con-struction schedules, and improve jobsite safety. We can’t wait to show off the technology live in Munich.”
