Bauma showguide: Falsework and formwork

By Andy Brown03 April 2019


Layher is said to be working to make scaffolding construction faster and safer

Doka will be presenting products, services and innovations on a 4,700 m² booth in the open-air area north/west at booth FN.420. At the booth there will be information and products from Doka, Form-on’s formwork trade and, for the first time, the Umdasch Group Ventures.

Umdasch Group Ventures deals with future trends and new technologies in construction and focuses on the development of disruptive innovations. The Umdasch Group’s innovation hub will present three new solutions: Contour Crafting (3D printing in construction), Neulandt (mobile precasting plant primarily for affordable housing) and Contakt (jobsite digitisation).

Form-on is a Doka subsidiary that supplies new and used formwork components worldwide.

Live product demonstrations at the stand will include the current world champions and vice world champions in concrete construction, with the DokaXlight formwork system to be used in this year’s performance.


Visitors to the Doka stand will be able to use Virtual Reality (VR) to experience different scenarios

Visitors will be able to use Virtual Reality (VR) to experience difference scenarios and follow presentations focusing separately on the highrise, infrastructure and energy sectors of construction. In Doka’s Digital Services area, the most recent digital solutions and services can be tried out.

One of the new products on display will be the safety-focused FreeFalcon. This mobile personal fall-arrest system secures workers where the risk of a fall is most critical.

Another product on display will be Dokaflex Xbrace, an enhanced version of the Dokaflex timber-beam floor formwork that, according to the company, adds flexibility, universal usability and simplicity of use to contemporary safety aspects. All existing Dokaflex systems can be adapted to the new version.

Layher says it will be presenting many innovations at Bauma. Layher’s managing director

Wolf Christian Behrbohm, said, “To make scaffolding construction even faster, easier and safer, we are continuing to work on our systems with a view to creating more possibilities. These include expansion parts integrated both structurally and dimensionally into the system, such as the new Aluminium FlexBeam.

“It can be used to build suspended scaffolding, for example, for bridge construction and repair, even more efficiently. But also – and in particular -–they include Layher Lightweight. This high-efficiency package ensures, with light yet strong components as well as design improvements, an increase in scaffolding construction performance.”

The company also said that it would be addressing the question of how BIM can be adopted for scaffolding as a temporary structure – this is to be one of the topics at the company’s world of innovation section at their stand.


Paschal will be presenting new products and solutions at the show

Paschal will be presenting what it claims are innovative and customer-oriented formwork solutions in its approximately 1,000m² exhibition space.

The Logo.3 is said to be the centre-point of the stand; the system uses large panels and a small number of connecting pieces to enable quick and economic formwork with this system.

The Logo.3 panels will be displayed alongside Logo.S with its steel facing and platform brackets with guard rail posts for special areas of application, and Logo alu manual formwork.

As the lightweight formwork with the aluminium frame can also be moved by hand, it is said to be suited for any construction site without a crane and for work in existing buildings.

Paschal will also present a new product in the Logo product range – the new multi waler for Logo.3. It said this innovation could be used as an extension post or as a “highly versatile” waler, with the advantage of being light in weight.

The company will also introduce its new lateral protection that can be used for a range of different applications.

Paschal said its anchoring system had been developed from practical experience, and that it simplified work on shafts. With the anchor cone, Paschal can now offer a unified anchoring system suitable for all climbing and platform systems.

It added that software solutions for digital construction and planning were of fundamental importance to medium-sized enterprises today. With the fully automatic Paschal-Plan light 12.0 formwork planning software and its IFC4 interface, Paschal group company Planitec will offer customers a BIM-compliant software tool that can also be used for inventory control.


Peri will showcase wall formwork

Peri will be showcasing numerous new developments for formwork and scaffolding technology. The focus is on innovations, practice-oriented system supplements and further developments which cover a wide range of applications and target groups.

On the Outdoor Exhibition Area North (Stand FN 719), visitors can enter the completely re-designed Peri exhibition hall.

“Peri’s products are designed to make work operations more cost-effective, faster and safer for our customers. This is our mission and our driving force. At Bauma 2019, visitors can experience first-hand how our latest innovations and services as well as our proven systems can contribute to their respective individual project success. And, of course, we are bringing a number of very special innovations with us to Munich for our customers,” said Alexander Schwörer, managing director for marketing and sales of the Peri Group.


Framini, the new formwork

Peri will be presenting itself at Bauma 2019 as a complete solution provider for formwork and scaffolding systems, supplemented by a comprehensive service portfolio. Additionally, other Peri formwork and scaffolding systems are on display, which have been developed to suit the requirements of technologically less-developed markets.

There will also be a focus on digital solutions and the future of construction. Visitors to the stand will gain insights into the latest 3-D concrete printing technology that will be supplemented by corresponding reference projects.

In 2018 Peri obtained a significant stake in a  technology company focused on the 3-D concrete printing sector. Moreover, on jobsites of the future, there is a space reserved for the use of robots and, through live demonstrations, visitors can see for themselves how robots will be able to provide more planning reliability and efficiency in the future when surveying construction sites.
