RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE now with larger demonstration areasPublished 7/3 at 17:19
Between 5 and 7 September 2019, the recycling and civil engineering sector will come together at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, which will host for the second time the RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE trade shows.
Special theme areas make up the main focus of the RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE trade shows. These comprise of ‘mobile scrap and metal yard’, ‘wood and biomass’, ‘demonstration building sites for road and path construction’, and ‘canal works’. In all four areas, exhibitors will be able to demonstrate machinery and equipment, with one factor linking the trade fair pairing being construction waste recycling, with exhibitors such as Moerschen and Kölsch providing live demonstrations at their respective stands.
Claus Faber, site manager at Scholz Recycling GmbH, is very enthusiastic about the demonstrations: “Of all the demonstration trade fairs, I am particularly taken with the quality of the live demonstrations in Karlsruhe, where the machines are shown working in sequence in real life operating situations. We came to RecyclingAKTIV 2017 intending to purchase a screen unit, and encountered a surprising number of manufacturers there. As our work involves screening scrap metal, we compared machines above all based on their construction and robustness. In the end, we decided to go for Komptech’s Cribus 2800 drum screen.”
The 200+ exhibitors at the shows not only have the option of demonstrating their products in the special theme areas but also on their own stands’. Owing to the great demand for space, the trade fair organisers have increased the open air exhibition area by some 10,000m2. Amongst the companies exhibiting are Arjes, Doppstadt, Wacker Neuson and Kemroc who will all be putting their machines and other equipment through their paces. Other exhibitors include Zeppelin (with Cat), Bobcat (with Doosan) and Sany, and making their debut at TiefbauLIVE includes construction machinery manufacturer Liebherr and Swedish company Epiroc.
Also present are equipment dealers such as BML, Kiesel (with Hitachi and Fuchs), Ludwig, Schwab and, for the very first time, Cramo – one of Europe’s leading construction equipment rental companies. Trade fair project manager Claudia Nötzelmann stresses the importance of attracting such international exhibitors: “It is already clear that, on the exhibitor front, our demonstration trade fairs will be every bit as international as they were in 2017. Given that the bauma construction machinery trade fair is also being held this year, this is a very successful result for us.”
Exhibitors from many countries
As well as Austrian crushing and shredding specialists Komptech, other international producers of recycling equipment are exhibiting at the trade fair. Ecostar from Italy will be showcasing its shredding and screening machines, while Austrian producer Xava specialises in compact screening technology. Polish company ZM Precyzja will be demonstrating shredders for paper and board packaging along with crushers for wood and biomass.
As well as this, new exhibitors include eSaver, Oleoweb and Proemion, which will be presenting their testing, measuring, analysis and control technology in the trade fair hall right next to the open air exhibition area. Other hall exhibitors include Losberger (site trailers and hall construction solutions), Riedlberger (road construction and machine technology), Vp Groundforce (shoring systems rental) and Metso (scrap shears).
