Bauma 2010, the 29th International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment took place in Munich from 19-25 April. Despite a temporary closure of European airspace, huge crowds flocked in to see a record number of exhibitors.
German tipper manufacturer Dautel was amongst those attending the fair.
Dautel has been manufacturing trailer bodies for over 70 years. During the fair it demonstrated a range of its new tipper bodies. From early days spent building horse-drawn wagons, Dautel has grown to become one of Europe’s leading tipper manufacturers. The new DK3.48 and DK3.51 three-way tippers, and the HK Classis rear tipper were displayed for the very first time during the fair which attracted in excess of 415,000 visitors from more than 200 countries at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre.
These three way tippers are lighter and feature a range of safety and operational improvements, while the HK Classic has been designed for use in the toughest applications.
Dautel was amongst the 3150 exhibitors from over 53 countries that displayed its products in over 555,000 square metres of exhibition space. Although a temporary closure of European air space as a result of Iceland’s Eyjafjoell volcanic eruption prevented some overseas visitors as well as approximately 50 overseas exhibitors from attending the fair, many exhibitors reported more sales than they had anticipated.
