bauma 2022 to highlight Machine Technology & Innovation

Baumabauma, the World's Leading Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment will take place  October 24-30, 2022 at the Messe Munich Exhibition Center in Munich, Germany. bauma will give a comprehensive overview of market leaders and innovations. The mining industry, an area where bauma is the leader in Europe, will be well represented once again. 
At the upcoming edition, the focus will also once again be on a wide variety of future topics in the construction, building materials and mining machinery industries in live presentations, rounds of discussions and lectures. The trend topics for bauma 2022 are “The road to zero emissions”, “Digital construction site”, “Construction methods and materials of tomorrow”, “The road to autonomous machines” and “Mining—sustainable, efficient, reliable”.
Autonomous construction machines as a development goal
In particular, the development of autonomous construction machines is currently among the main goals of manufacturers and research institutes alike. Accordingly, many aspects of this topic will be echoed at bauma. Can robots help to monitor the status of construction projects, such as the 3.6 km-long Köhlbrand Bridge in Hamburg? That’s one of the questions being worked on by researchers from the Institute for Digital and Autonomous Construction from the Technical University of Hamburg. To do so, they are using a four-legged mobile robot, the I-DOG. The machine is about the size of a poodle and is equipped with sensors for measuring, processing and analyzing data on building structures. It is also capable of recording and analyzing vibrations, which can be used to detect structural damage.

Mining sector to be widely represented again

The mining industry, an area where bauma is the leader in Europe, will be well represented once again. Exhibitors will include such industry heavyweights as BHS Sonthofen, Herrenknecht, Komatsu, Liebherr, Schulte Strathaus and Zeppelin Baumaschinen. Other companies attending the fair will be the Matrix Design Group from the United States, Resemin from Peru, Roco9 from Great Britain, Tesab Engineering from Great Britain and Weber Mining & Tunneling from France. Another returning company will be Minearc Systems from Australia, a key market for the mining industry.
Innovation hub
The mining sector is hardly the only industry that is strongly attracted to bauma. For years now, the trade fair has been viewed as the world’s unmistakable innovation hub thanks to the tremendous number of innovations that exhibitors present there. This special position will be underscored this year by the innovation hall LAB0, an area that will include such special areas as the bauma Forum, virtual reality, MIC 4.0, startups and a science hub. Think Big, a program that promotes talented young people, will also be included as a key issue for the industry.
