At the beginning of April Makinex was at Bauma – the largest show on earth.
Wow… it.. is.. BIG! Stats this year:
- 620,000 visitors from 200 countries
- 3,700 exhibitors from 63 countries
- 614,000 square meters
- Big focus/trend this year on digitalisation and hybrid or fully electric machines
Our Australian R&D Manager Matthew Cape and Peter Maginnis from our USA office attended.
There was a clear trend at the show on automation, digital and electric hybrid, and as innovators this was extremely interesting for our team.
Looking at other leaders in the construction industry such as Hilti ( Makinex had a great meeting with the Hilti R&D centre) Spending 5 hours touring the various departments and meeting the respective heads. A very impressive tour.
