From 08 to 14 April 2019, bauma, the world’s largest construction machinery equipment trade fair will once again be opening its doors. Under the heading “Our contribution to increase productivity on the construction site”, the Doka Campus will be presenting the most recent products, services and innovations from the world of formwork on a 4,700 m² booth. Booth FN.420 located in the open-air north/west area is where visitors can experience all the new features and solutions of productivity increase in every aspect of formwork engineering.
The bauma breaks already the first record three months before the official start on April 8th.
More than 3500 exhibitors from 55 countries have registered – almost 100 more exhibitors than in 2016 at the last show. The trade fair site in eastern Munich has expanded to 614,000 square metres and the number of exhibition halls has increased to 18. The same way bauma has expanded, Doka has also added two new sectors to its presence this year. On the 4,700 m² Campus will be presenting the full range of products and services from Doka, Form-on’s formwork trade and, for the first time, the Umdasch Group Ventures will present its innovative projects.
The Umdasch Group is an umbrella organisation with three operational companies: Doka, Umdasch Group Ventures and umdasch The Store Makers.
Doka’s sister company Umdasch Group Ventures deals with future trends and new technologies in the construction field and focuses exclusively on the development of groundbreaking potentially disruptive innovations. In 2019, the Umdasch Group’s innovation hub will present three new solutions: Contour Crafting (3D printing in construction), Neulandt (mobile precasting plant primarily for affordable housing) and Contakt (jobsite digitisation).
Form-on is a Doka subsidiary that supplies worldwide new and used formwork components. Form-on has two divisions; the first is the COMPONENTS division, which supplies the dealers and formwork manufacturers with brand-new formwork components such as sheets, beams, props and plywood. The second division is USED, which buys and sells a variety of quality of used formwork by different manufacturers.
The Doka Campus is a meeting place, oriented toward dialogue and communication with the visitors. The bauma tradeshow is a unique opportunity topresent the world of Doka with all its aspects and, most importantly of all, to demonstrate Doka’s contribution to productivity on the construction site, including products, services and digital solutions.
“Every day, our clients are performing exceptionally. Doka assists them in this and wants to be remembered as a construction-industry partner who today already has tomorrow’s solutions for boosting productivity on the jobsite and who is also looking even further forward into the future. Our most important messages at bauma 2019 are an extended portfolio of our products and services, and especially new ideas for boosting productivity on construction site in every aspect of formwork and in-situ concreting”, states Harald Ziebula, Chairman of the Executive Board, Doka.
As it was at bauma 2016, live product demonstrations with the current world champions and vice world champions in concrete construction (WorldSkills 2017) will be among the special highlights this year. What is new here is that the DokaXlight formwork system will be used in this year’s performance.
The 16 metres high two-level Engineering Tower will demonstrate Doka’s engineering competences. Visitors will be able to use Virtual Reality (VR) to experience different scenarios and follow presentations focusing separately on the highrise, infrastructure and energy sectors of construction. The engineering experts will be available to discuss the specifics of each sector. Doka team with their global practical project-based experience supports customers in their projects all over the world.
