Putzmeister to show off value-added solutions at Bauma

The Putzmeister Group plans to present 24 machines and product solutions from construction and mortar technology on 2,600 m² of space at the upcoming Bauma fair in Munich, Germany, on April 8-14, it said.

The concrete pump manufacturer will be demonstrating the added value of its products in terms of safety, efficiency, connectivity, Human Machine Interface and service, it said, with visitors able to follow product videos and interactive presentations on pylons.

Martin Knötgen, CEO of Putzmeister Holding GmbH, summed up the new features at this year’s Bauma by saying: “We set benchmarks in efficiency, safety and connectivity. We give our customers the means to generate true added value with our products as effectively as possible.”

Putzmeister will be presenting the latest generation of truck-mounted concrete pumps with the M63-5, M36-4 and M51-5 type models. These are all geared towards providing increased efficiency, improved operating comfort and greater profitability.

Meanwhile, the new iLS concrete pumps (pictured) – set apart by its high conveying capacities even under extreme conditions – will also be on show. “Thanks to larger cylinder diameters and fewer strokes, they are low-wear and hence more durable,” the company said of the pumps.

FORMKRET, the automated shutter filling system, will also get an outing. This system reduces personnel expenditure in the prefabrication plant and, for tunnel shuttering work, increases application safety and shortens project lead times. Putzmeister’s pioneering concepts for the prefabrication industry, in the form of the Autocor® modular system, will also be shown off.

At the show, Putzmeister will offer perspectives for a digital future. “On the Putzmeister exhibition stand, visitors can enjoy a live experience: In the clever machine cockpit, all relevant machine data are shown in real time,” the company said.
