Held once every 3 years, bauma 2019 will once again bring thousands of visitors to Munich, Germany. While there, they will have the opportunity to see the latest technologies dedicated to the construction, building material and mining industries.

Electrification and automation have gained significant traction in several industries, including construction and mining, and thus will be a major topic of interest during this year’s bauma. “The important thing to note is that we won’t only be showcasing the diverse range of possible applications of leading exhibitors’ products but will also be providing a platform for discussing the aims, potential and sustainability of new technology,” said Mareile Kästner, bauma 2019 Project Director, in a press release from show organizer Messe Munchen.

Cloud-based infrastructures, digital services portfolios and security solutions are among the technologies transforming today’s heavy-duty industries, and will be on display in April.

Sustainability has become increasingly important for mining equipment design and development, as well as in the other heavy-duty equipment industries.

bauma 2019 will provide a platform for sustainable mining technologies and practices to demonstrate ways of optimizing the use of energy and resources. Introduction of alternative energies and new technologies will also be a major part of the initiative.
