Nearly 3,500 exhibitors from 58 countries were slated to return Oct. 24-30 for Bauma 2022 in Munich, Germany.

Ahead of the show, Nicole Schmitt, executive director of Messe München – the organization running Bauma – expected this year’s exhibition to feel “normal,” with no big changes from the 2019 rendition. One Bauma addition, however, was a start-up area.

“It is the place where young companies can present their innovative ideas at small booths,” Schmitt says. “In addition, they [had] the chance to hold lectures in the Bauma Forum to present their innovation and ideas.”

A number of equipment manufacturers had plans to showcase their latest wares at Bauma. Here’s a look at three with significant U.S. presences and their planned displays.

Kleemann crushers, screens

Kleemann planned to highlight nine mobile crushing and screening plants along with its Spective operating concept. Kleemann also planned to debut its Mobirex MR 130(i) PRO impact crushing plant.

Kleemann says the Mobirex MR 130(i) PRO is used as a primary and secondary crusher, combining output, precision and sustainability. The plant features an all-electric drive concept with the option of an external power supply. Because of this, Kleemann says the plant guarantees low-energy consumption per ton of final product.

An optional double-deck secondary screening unit allows for the production of two classified final sizes, the company adds. The MR 130(i) PRO covers a wide application range in natural stone and recycling, Kleemann says.

Additionally, the crushing unit features a heavy rotor and an electric 250-kilowatt drive.

Powerscreen portables

Powerscreen was also expected at Bauma, highlighting its Premiertrak 330 jaw crusher and Chieftain 1700X three-deck incline screen.

According to Powerscreen, the Chieftain 1700X is a midsized tracked mobile screen aimed at end users requiring high volumes of finished products in applications such as crushed stone, sand and gravel. Powerscreen says user benefits include a quick setup time, a dropdown tail conveyor and a four-bearing screenbox featuring the ability to switch to a two-bearing setup in less than three hours.

The Premiertrak 330, meanwhile, features a two-piece grizzly feeder, allowing for better material flow toward the chamber. A quick setup time and variable crusher speed are among the Premiertrak 330’s benefits, the company adds.

Cat electric offerings

Caterpillar’s Bauma plans included four battery electric machine prototypes.

Cat was expected to showcase a 301.9 mini excavator, a 320 medium excavator, a 950 GC medium wheel loader and a 906 compact wheel loader. Cat battery prototypes power the machines, which include an onboard AC charger. Cat plans to offer an offboard DC fast-charging option, as well.

“Caterpillar is well positioned to help customers reach their sustainability goals, including lowering emissions on the jobsite,” says Tony Fassino, president of Cat’s construction industries group. “It’s important we meet customers on their sustainability journey today with a variety of solutions, including machines that run on renewable fuels or technology that increases fuel efficiency, as well as supporting them into the future as we power our next generation of machines.”
