MINERS GUIDE TO BAUMA 42 E&MJ • MARCH 2019 Every three years, Messe München hosts the bauma trade fair in Munich. Billed as the world's leading sector event for con- struction machinery, building material machines, mining machines and con- struction equipment, the exhibition space totals 640,000 m 2 , making it the largest trade show on earth. For 2019, Messe München expects to have 3,500 exhibitors from 60 countries. Unlike other large equipment fairs, bau- ma has dedicated a portion of its program to mining. Mining represents roughly 20% of the exhibition. The mining sector has its own hall: C2. According to Messe München, a total of 578 exhibitors in- dicated they are involved with mining, extracting and processing raw materials. Visitors reviewing exhibitor information will note the mining symbol and the phrase Mining Inside. Miners hoping to make the most of their time, however, will need to narrow the field. For them, E&MJ offers a selection of "must-see" stands. What follows is a compilation of announcements leading up to the event. ALLU Offers Mobile App In addition to its existing state-of-the-art screener/crusher equipment being exhibit- ed at the show, ALLU will also be introduc- ing new products and solutions, including a new Mobile App with new functions aimed at helping improve productivity, job-site safety and customer service. The new Mobile App is the latest de- velopment for ALLU's communication system. It provides an intelligent digital solution for customers and operators to obtain accurate and timely operation- al information, thereby maximizing safe and productive use of ALLU equipment. Through easier and improved contact functionality, customer support is also enhanced through the new features of the app. There will be live demonstrations throughout the show from the ALLU stand (FN.1021/2 in the open area, north). Reliable Conveyors for Rough Terrain The BEUMER Group (Hall B2, Stand 413) will provide information on their efficient transport solutions for the min- ing industry. Overland conveyors and pipe conveyors transport various raw materials over long distances and often through rough terrain. This is generally faster, more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly than trucking. High angles of inclination and tight curve radii are not a problem. BEUMER Group relies on camera-equipped drones for the planning, projection, implementa- tion and documentation of these systems. Using special software solutions, the sys- tem supplier evaluates the aerial photo- graphs photogrammetrically to generate digital terrain models. The BEUMER product range also in- cludes stackers and bridge reclaimers for storage yards, whether with or with- out blending bed systems. These stack bulk material and guarantee a maximum blending effect. Users can also efficiently homogenize large quantities of different bulk materials and bulk material qualities and ensure the uniformity of the raw ma- terials used. For efficient loading, BEUM- ER Group supplies ship loaders with fixed booms and extendable telescopic belt conveyors. Brokk Introduces Rock Drill Attachments As Brokk's machines have become more technically advanced and market demand for mechanization has increased, demo- lition robots are increasingly used for a more varied range of applications requir- ing additional tools. Over the last few years, to meet this demand, Brokk has developed new at- tachments and upgraded its machines to work well with a wider range of tools. One of those is a rock drill attachment. These are customized and fully integrated with the control and operation of the Brokk robots. The range has been extended with the pow- erful new TE 326 drill attachment used on the new Brokk 300 and Brokk 500 models. This creates a complete range of rock drills for Brokk machines, from the small Suppliers Debut New Products at bauma Finding mining-related solutions at the world's largest trade show can be complicated. Let E&MJ show you the way. By Steve Fiscor, Editor The Brokk TE160 rock drill attachment. ALLU's attachment crushes as it loads.
