Summary of the Bauma fair
3,200 exhibitors from 60 countries and over 495,000 visitors from over 200 countries came to the Munich exhibition center on October 24-30, 2022, making Bauma the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, mining machinery, construction vehicles and construction equipment. Regularly since 2013, the Polish manufacturer of tipping bodies for trucks – the KH-KIPPER company, has also been exhibiting there.
Such a huge fair was an excellent opportunity to establish new business contacts, but the talks started during the meetings at the stands will be continued long after the fair. – says Łukasz Karczewski, KH-KIPPER Commercial Director responsible for sales to over 60 countries around the world.
At its stand, KH-KIPPER presented the W1MV mining body on the Scania Group 8×4 chassis, the W3H construction body on the MAN Truck & Bus 8×4 chassis with a hydraulic left sidewall and the FML Leżajsk concrete mixer, which is part of the so-called exchangeable body system.
Of course, these are not the only KH-KIPPER products that were presented on the vast exhibition area of the Bavarian capital. At the Palfinger stand, there was an electric Volvo 6×2 chassis with a W3A body, and the Zink company showed a three-way W3A body with aluminum sides and a crane behind the cabin on MAN 6×4 chassis.
Our stand was visited by customers from all over the world which gave an excellent opportunity to exchange valuable information and assess the condition of the industry. Today, we all face the collapse of the supply chain, high energy prices and rising costs of product production, and the search for new solutions and products has become a kind of new reality to which we have got used to and developed new ways of operating. The reduction of the carbon footprint, the electrification of vehicles, process optimization and autonomous vehicles in mines are trends that are gradually settling into the construction and mining industries, in which KH-KIPPER is most active and which were discussed vividly in Munich. – adds Łukasz Karczewski.
Next edition will be held on 7-13 April 2025.
