Digitalization and sustainability – these will be the driving forces of our industry in the future. They are also reflected in the five key topics that have been defined for bauma 2022. The momentum generated by them will decisively shape markets, around the world.
As the opening of bauma approaches, the key topics defined for this year’s trade fair will be explored in a five-part webinar series organized in conjunction with the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association, VDMA.
Once bauma is under way focus days within the bauma FORUM will investigate each topic from a range of different perspectives. Industry, researchers and the start-up community will discuss the issues that are moving the industry and will shape the future during fascinating talks, keynote speeches and podium discussions.
Around the world, the construction machinery industry is tackling the challenges of today. The primary goal is to lower the amount of carbon dioxide released during the production of cement. Demolition materials should be better processed and reused in the future. New materials are also appearing on the scene.
3D printing, modular construction and new materials: The construction machinery industry and the mining industry are developing innovative construction methods and material solutions. We will showcase them for you at bauma and beforehand in our bauma TALK 1.
The development of autonomous machinery for construction sites and mining operations is taking huge leaps forward, even if there is still a long way to go until full automation is reached. Automating and digitalizing construction processes and machinery will reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and ensure productivity in this age of skilled-worker shortages.
Human machine interfaces (HMI), assistant and safety systems, construction site robots and the downsizing trend: There are many milestones that still must be reached on the way to developing autonomous construction machinery and autonomous underground mining equipment.
The exhibitors and speakers at bauma 2022 will explore these issues during bauma TALK 2 and during the trade fair itself.
How can mining profit from its digitalization and automation edge in the future? The mining industry already has a standard that is being used in the manufacturing process: open platform communication – unified architecture, or OPC UA. At the same time, environmental compatibility and recultivation are creating new challenges for the industry.
As the leading platform for the mining industry, bauma will focus intensely on the questions of the future for the mining industry for you. Live demonstrations will be complemented by the presentation of new research findings.
bauma TALK 4 and the focus day in the bauma FORUM will investigate solutions that various actors are developing under the umbrella term “Mining 4.0” to meet this broad array of challenges.
Digital planning and construction processes promise to create increased environmental protection, safety and, not least, cost effectiveness to go along with efficiency. The key pre-condition for these gains is a manufacturer-independent communication standard for machine-to-machine communications (M2M).
Data management, BIM, virtual and augmented reality and digital twins are increasingly playing a crucial role in the successful digital work on construction and mining sites.
At bauma, you will be able to see real-life examples, attend a thematic day at the bauma FORUM and view the presentation of the latest developments discussed previously at bauma TALK 3.
MiC 4.0 - The Machines in Construction 4.0 working group is celebrating its premiere at bauma in the Innovation Hall bauma LAB0. Eleven member companies will present the results of their MIC 4.0 BUS project - a milestone in the direction of 'attachment as IoT device'.
One goal for everyone – reducing greenhouse-gas emissions in the construction and construction machinery industry to zero.
Driving and working with hybrid and all-electric vehicles and construction machinery are two of the high-potential ways to cut emissions in the construction business. This is also the case with the development of CO2-reduced construction materials.
Speakers and discussion groups will delve into the vision of “zero emissions” during bauma, in the bauma FORUM and during bauma TALK 5, and examine the road that leads to this destination.
