The bauma breaks already the first record three months before the official start on April 8th.
More than 3500 exhibitors from 55 countries have registered - almost 100 more exhibitors than in 2016 at the last show. The trade fair site in eastern Munich has expanded to 614,000 square metres and the number of exhibition halls has increased to 18.
The Doka Campus
is a meeting place, oriented toward dialogue and communication with the visitors. The bauma tradeshow is a unique opportunity to present the world of Doka with all its aspects and, most importantly of all, to demonstrate Doka’s contribution to productivity on the construction site, including products, services and digital solutions.“Every day, our clients are performing exceptionally. Doka assists them in this and wants to be remembered as a construction-industry partner who today already has tomorrow's solutions for boosting productivity on the jobsite and who is also looking even further forward into the future. Our most important messages at bauma 2019 are an extended portfolio of our products and services, and especially new ideas for boosting productivity on construction site in every aspect of formwork and in-situ concreting”
, states Harald Ziebula, Chairman of the Executive Board, Doka.
As it was at bauma 2016, live product demonstrations
with the current world champions and vice world champions in concrete construction (WorldSkills 2017) will be among the special highlights this year. What is new here is that the DokaXlight formwork system will be used in this year's performance.
The 16 metres high two-level Engineering Tower
will demonstrate Doka’s engineering competence. Visitors will be able to use Virtual Reality (VR) to experience different scenarios and follow presentations focusing separately on the highrise, infrastructure and energy sectors of construction. The engineering experts will be available to discuss the specifics of each sector. Doka team with their global practical project-based experience supports customers in their projects all over the world.
In the high-rise construction sector, DokaXact
is a product innovation celebrating its world première at this year’s bauma, which has been nominated for an innovation award. DokaXact is a sensor-based system enabling speed and precision for surveyors and site crews setting up the wall formwork of self-climbing systems. The innovation was used for the first time at the Elephant and Castle Masterplan 3 (MP3) by AJ Morrisroe, creating an important step toward smart construction sites and delivering transparency in the process with the ability for data to be viewed at any time by all stakeholders.The latest digital solutions optimise construction procedures on site
Before visitors enter Doka's formwork world, they immerse themselves in the world of digitisation. In the Digital Services area, the most recent digital solutions and services from Doka can be tried out on a total area of 225 m². The range of digital services is presented in three subsections – Smart Jobsite, Smart Assistants and Smart Planning. This puts Doka's main focus on digital solutions for optimising procedures on site and contributing significantly to a productivity boost in the construction industry. Simplified working procedures, more transparency and better quality in execution are the central aspects of this digital Doka drive.
The Doka AR-VR app
) enables customers to experience selected Doka solutions in augmented and virtual reality. The digital services range from projecting Doka formwork on to printed plans through positioning 3D models in their surroundings to taking virtual reality tours of the Doka formwork solutions. A 3D view of the models and QR code readers complement the app’s functionality. Some 3D models even let viewers show and hide certain components and watch animations of the set-up procedures.Concremote
is an innovative service that has established itself as an indispensable partner on numerous construction sites. The unique digital measuring and decision-supporting system that measures concrete strength development on site and in real-time now comes with a range of software and hardware innovations. Among others, the new web portal features FORECAST for predicting strength development and SCENARIO for comparing several concrete formulations as well as the new Concremote App deserve special mention.
Virtual construction is set to become a standard tool in the near future. Networking and automation of the “real construction site” will continue to increase. For Doka, this means that with VDC/BIM
(Virtual Design and Construction/Building Information Modelling), formwork solutions can be matched even more closely to the planning and construction process for any given building, contributing significantly to the success of the project as a whole. Customers enjoy specific benefits, including the ability to access up-to-date information on the building at any time and run simulations to check construction progress, cost and safety.
customer portal offers first-class customer service. Customers have convenient access to their specific project or site information at any time from a PC, tablet or smartphone, an ideal interface to the Doka team. Over the past few months, software engineers have worked intensely on further enhancing myDoka. The online portal is now even more user-friendly, structured and intuitive. Its new functionalities make it even easier for customers to manage their projects and jobsites.New products from the Doka world
Safety, speed and cost-effectiveness are increasingly becoming a decisive success factor in tough construction site work. Doka formwork systems are optimised to deliver precisely this success. In the formwork world, Doka customers can experience this on first hand in a variety of areas.FreeFalcon
is one of the latest products of the most important trendy sector, which is safety. It closes the gap in the area of flexible overhead anchor points on construction sites and is the perfect synthesis of safety and freedom of movement. This mobile personal fall-arrest system secures workers where the risk of a fall is most critical. This significantly enhances user safety without sacrificing mobility, helping to minimise the risk of falls from height.Doka at bauma 2019,
