RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2022: 24 hours of concentrated live demonstrations of machine and equipment technology on three trade fair days

Premiere of three new demo formats and further programme highlights

Alternative Drives for construction machinery, Construction Vehicles and recycling plants, construction site processes, Digitalisation and the continuing shortage of skilled workers are the major trend- and topics of discussion in the building and environmental economy. At over 200 points of contact in the 90,000 m² open-air and indoor area will showcase exhibitors present solutions and "their answer" to the challenges of the markets. In a condensed form and embedded in practical process sequences, the current the current topics of the sector in five thematic live demo formats. at and and brought to life experience. For the third edition of the demonstration trade fair from 05 to 07 May at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. the clear profile as a practical live demonstration fair was once again significantly and the content of the programme premières has been innovatively developed to meet the innovatively developed along the needs of the markets.

Five demo formats bring visitors very close to the action

One of a total of three new demo formats is the Attachment Arena. There, in three themed demonstrations per day, visitors can experience in an action-packed show the versatility of the tool carrier in the use of demolition, recycling or soil preparation work and find the perfect implement for more productivity in their own operations. In addition to construction machinery and construction vehicles, the focus here is on attachments. Bucket separators, demolition hammers or attachment compactors will be impressively demonstrated in realistic construction processes. The brilliant show setting will be optimally rounded off by expert advisors who will provide information on the added value and areas of application of the attachment.

Parallel to the fair, on the Friday of the fair, the Special Civil Engineering Industry Meeting of the German Association of the Construction Industry, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering (VDBUM) will take place. (VDBUM) with a high-calibre line-up of managing directors and executives from specialist foundation engineering companies, engineering offices, machine and component manufacturers and installation service companies. Together with the model construction site for special civil engineering, this creates a symbiosis of theory and practice that forms the basis for the future expansion of the subject area. A Bauer rotary drilling rig as well as a MOVAX pile driver and an earth borer are in use at the model construction site. The core of the model construction site is the topics of safety and process orientation. The VDBUM will also address construction site logistics, safety and material transport in two demonstrations per day. The product presentation will thus be expanded to include intensive and individual advice directly on the equipment.

The electric mobility showcase in compact and landscaping construction is taking place for the first time. It was initiated under the leadership of the VDBUM, the partner association of the trade fair, and designed together with the Verband Garten-, Landschafts- und Sportplatzbau Baden-Württemberg e.V. (Garden, Landscape and Sports Ground Construction Association of Baden-Württemberg). (GaLaBau BW). Among the ten or so participants in the model construction site are industry giants such as Wacker Neuson, Kiesel with Giant and Hitachi, Wilhelm Schäfer, AVANT Tecno, Husqvarna and JCB. A total of around 16 quiet, powerful yet economical machines will be on show, including battery-powered mini excavators, multifunctional loaders, forklifts and dumpers. The model construction site is thus aimed at more stringent noise and exhaust requirements in tenders for construction work in inner-city areas and demonstrates practical solutions. The construction site deals with two trend topics at the same time: It presents alternative drive forms of machine technologies and also sheds light on the overarching topic of promoting young talent. Trainees from gardening and landscaping companies will act as equipment operators and thus bring job profiles such as construction equipment operator to life. In addition, the assignment provides a successful change in the training programme for the skilled workers of tomorrow.

The topics of the model sewer construction site range from soil excavation and compaction to underground pipeline construction, material preparation and excavator control. The excavation procedure for buried supply lines, earthmoving and material preparation or the transport and loading of pipe elements and other construction materials will be designed here as a construction process just like on a real construction site, only in time-lapse and with expert moderation by the VDBUM. Participating companies include Moba, Hydrema, ALLU, Kemroc, SANY, RSP and Zeppelin. Visitors can look forward to mobile and tracked excavators in various ton classes in combination with attachments such as bucket separators, milling machines, add-on compactors or pipe connectors. The typical work in and around the canal construction site will be rounded off by vehicles for material transport and machines for excavating mineral building materials, such as suction excavators.

The specific infrastructure of a modern scrap yard is created on an area of approximately 2,000 square metres with all the work steps that take place there, such as storage, shredding, handling and recycling. Each demonstration will be professionally moderated in dialogue with the product specialists of the respective participating companies. The highlight of the Scrap & Metal action area is a processing plant for light mixed scrap, consisting of four units. This demonstrates a process chain for material recycling from pre-shredding to clean output. The metal plant is fed by a CAT handling excavator MH3024, equipped with a polyp grab. In addition, scrap shears from VENETO Schwenter and MBI as well as a hydraulic magnet from SkanCraft can be seen in live operation. The company analyticon instruments will provide insights into mobile analytics in the realistic environment of a scrap yard by presenting the advantages of analysers for distinguishing alloys. The concept of the mobile scrap yard is rounded off by a modular system for storage boxes and the use of a BUTTI forklift broom.

Themed tours pick up on current industry developments

Five thematic visitor tours take up topics that move the industries, provide impulses, show approaches to solutions and enable a condensed insight into current topics in the civil engineering, demolition and recycling industries. Moderated by the associations BDSV e.V., bvse e. V., DA e.V., VDBUM e. V. and Verband Garten-, Landschafts- und Sportplatzbau Baden- Württemberg e.V., groups of a maximum of 30 participants per tour will visit the respective industry experts of the association partners. The different theme tours will lead to six to ten selected stands and offer a lot of specialist input in about 1.5 hours. Visitors thus have the chance to get to know the right contact person at the respective trade fair stands without having to wait, to follow the exhibitors' thematically appropriate product presentations and to take home inspiration and new impulses for their own businesses. The guided tours are free of charge for visitors.

The themes of the tours are:

  • Construction process (moderated by VDBUM)
  • Construction site logistics (moderated by VDBUM)
  • Gardening and landscaping (moderated by Verband Garten-, Landschafts- und Sportplatzbau Baden-Württemberg e.V.)
  • Mobile processing technology in steel recycling (moderated by BDSV and ISM - Institute for Scrap and Metals)
  • From demolition to the use of quality-assured secondary building materials (moderated by bvse and DA)

Sounding out the future at the Baustelle:Zukunft job fair

At RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE, an area for "jobs with a view" will be installed near two living model construction sites. Renowned construction, demolition and recycling companies such as Peter Gross Bau, Leonhard Weiss, the Oettinger Group as well as the Reif Group from Raststatt are represented here to present themselves and their vacant positions in a realistic working environment. Since trainees from graduating classes of the construction industry are also involved in "Jobs with a View", it will be easy for interested pupils, trainees, students, young professionals, skilled workers and also career changers willing to change jobs to get into conversation with the companies in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

Founder Garage: Start-ups show product innovations

The Founders' Garage, which is being implemented together with COREUM as a start-up zone in the hall area, offers young companies an appealing platform to market their innovative solutions, sound out potential partnerships or attract the attention of investors and media representatives. With their ideas, they represent the future trends of the construction industry as well as environmental and recycling technology. For example, SODEX will present the SDX-4DVision assistance system, which is based on laser and camera technology and enables the automation of surveying and documentation work in the field of civil engineering. Wastebox will be showing a newly developed app that digitally maps the entire waste disposal process. Customers and suppliers are networked in real time so that the disposal of construction site waste is organised quickly and transparently. The companies Quiky, Recalm and PistonPower can also be found in the Founders' Garage.

SBM Summit - Trade congress for sustainable and ecological materials

The SBM Summit (Sustainable Building Materials) is the first trade congress for sustainable and ecological materials for the construction and finishing of buildings. The centrepiece is the exclusive lecture programme. "The demand for climate-friendly building materials and sustainable solutions in the construction industry has increased rapidly in recent years. With the SBM Summit, we want to offer the industry a forum to specifically address the building materials of the future, to explore their possible applications and to exchange experiences and network with each other," says Frank Thieme, project manager of the SBM Summit.
