BAUMA PREVIEW 2019 50 E&MJ • FEBRUARY 2019 venue where all key players in the industry can discuss the issue of sustainability so thoroughly. This will make bauma the ideal place to conduct successful business." Liebherr to Showcase Latest Developments With its overarching message, "Together. Now & Tomorrow," Liebherr will give bauma attendees a chance to learn more about its products, innovations and trends. Construction on Liebherr's stand began a full half-year be- fore the trade fair opens. With more than 14,000 m 2 of space, Liebherr's open-air terrain (809-813) will once again provide space for more than 60 exhibits. Among the many products on display will be new innovations and developments with tower cranes, mobile and crawler cranes, earthmoving, material han- dling, deep foundation, concrete technologies and mining. Liebherr will also present its latest components in hall A4 (stand 326) on a showroom floor of nearly 450 m 2 . Here, the focus will be on condition monitoring and system solutions. In hall B5 (stand 439), guests can learn more about the latest innovations from Liebherr's extensive attachment tools program. For the new XPower large wheel loader, trade visitors can also look forward to a total package with many smart assistance systems. Features also include the new rear-bystander detec- tion and a built-in, sensor-powered tire-monitoring system. With these and other assistance systems, Liebherr offers total solu- tions to optimize safety and comfort during everyday wheel-load- er operation. All these systems are developed by the Liebherr Group so they can be fully integrated into the control systems of the machinery. In the mining area, visitors will have a chance to experience the power of ultra-class mining trucks and excavators. A single dashboard makes fleet management easier than ever. At the fair, Liebherr Components will also reveal the demo version of an app that shows the extensive functionality of all Li- ebherr's condition monitoring components, from diesel engines to energy storage, hydraulics, transmissions and slewing bear- ings. In the future, this will enable machine manufacturers to inform fleet managers, service personnel and machine operators about the condition of their components. The Components divi- sion will also be presenting a full range of new products. Wirtgen Presents Smart Synergies The Wirtgen Group is a global trendsetter when it comes to in- novative road construction machinery — a fact highlighted by the company's approximately 120 exhibits and 13,000 m 2 of exhibition space at bauma 2019. This year, the group's slogan for the trade show is "Smart Synergies and Innovations." While the mining industry is most familiar with Wirtgen and its surface miners, the Wirtgen Group also encompasses several specialized product brands, including Vögele, Hamm, Kleemann and Benninghoven. Together, they form the basis for synergies that allow customers to leverage additional savings potential — in other words, Smart Synergies. The Wirtgen Group's concentrated strength will be on full dis- play in Munich — together with John Deere at a shared booth for the very first time. Thanks to the two companies' complementary product ranges, the lineup covers an enormous range of custom- er solutions.
