bauma 2016: Thank you very much for your visit!
3426 exhibitors, 580,000 visitors, more than 200 different nations – these are the headline figures for bauma 2016, which once again delighted the industry, promoter and organisers from 11 to 17 April, breaking a number of records at the same time. Among those present was the roller manufacturer HAMM, which showed off numerous innovations on the Wirtgen Group exhibition stand and impressed the trade audience with its powerful exhibition presence.
To take an excellent example: the DV+ series pivot-steered tandem rollers. With their superlative compaction quality, different steering modes, extensive convenience features and, not least, the intuitive EasyDrive operating concept, they attracted considerable attention. The innovative EasyDrive operating concept, accoladed among other things with the iF design award 2015, is not only to be found on the DV+ series tandem rollers, but will in future also be available on the HD+ series and H series compactors. Dr. Axel Römer, Head of Development and Design: “The great interest in the EasyDrive concept among stand visitors has shown us the huge importance of intuitive and simple operation, especially for drivers. Here, HAMM offers a tailor-made solution because in future, EasyDrive will be implemented in various series, enabling us to offer a uniform operating concept for all rollers – technology and ergonomics brought together in perfect harmony. This is exactly what many customers want, as they confirmed to us there on our operator platform simulator.”
The roller manufacturers from Tirschenreuth were also able to come up with some convincing arguments in the earth work area. Here particular emphasis was on the H CompactLine series compactors with state-of-the-art and future-proof drive technology, highly effective exhaust gas purification, extensive application options and top-class driving and handling characteristics. Also in the spotlight: the GRW 180i rubber-wheeled roller in the class up to 18 t with flexible ballasting.
The 3000 series compactors, which particularly drew customers from the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America to the HAMM stand, should not be overlooked of course.
Gottfried Beer, Head of Marketing: “Thanks to an impressive exhibition stand with practical applications and by providing competent and personal advice, we enabled our visitors to gain a tangible experience of HAMM’s entire programme of products and services. We are now looking back on the most successful bauma ever and would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to all our visitors. bauma 2016 has once again demonstrated why it is the number one platform for our industry and also an absolute highlight for us.”
