Page 44 of 75 March 2016 • 43 BRIEFS ORGANIZATIONS INNOVATION AWARD NOMINEES Messe München GmbH has announced 15 bauma Innovation Award nominees. Winners will be honored the evening of April 10, ahead of the trade fair opening the following day, in a cere- mony at the Allerheiligen Hofkirche (Court Church of All Saints) in the Munich Residenz. bauma opens its doors from April 11 to 17 at the Messe München exhibition center. The Innovation Award is presented in five categories: Machinery; Components; Construc- tion Process/Construction Work; Research; and Design. In total 118 applications were received from Germany and abroad. The jury has selected three new developments in each category for a final judging round. Beyond sustainable attributes, Messe München notes, all of the nominated innovations offer significant practical benefit and economic potential, and make a contri- bution toward energy- and resource-efficiency and/or toward workplace humanization. The bauma Innovation Award 2016 finalist, by category, are: 1: Machinery • The Kramer 5055e, Kramer-Werke GmbH • Autonomous Vibratory Plate, Ammann Schweiz AG • Mobile Battery Mold, Weckenmann Anlagentechnik GmbH & Co KG 2: Components • SONO Water-Cement Analyzer, Imko GmbH • Intelligent Crane Fiber Rope, Teufelberger Seil GmbH • Liebherr Energy Storage, Liebherr Components Biberach GmbH 3: Construction Process/Construction Work • Reinforcement of a steel bridge, Leonhard Weiss GmbH Co KG • Pipe-laying equipment RVG 1.0, Harald Gollwitzer Spezialtiefbau GmbH • Building (yard) logistics 4.0 for SMEs, Johann Augel Bauunternehmung GmbH 4: Research • Concrete-3D-Printing Technology, TU Dresden, Dept. of Construction Machinery Technology • STEAM Hybrid Excavator, RWTH Aachen in cooperation with Volvo CE • MIDOS for offshore foundations, Bauer Maschinen GmbH in cooperation with the University College of Dublin 5: Design • Concept Cab – The Future Genius, TU Dresden • Mecalac MWR, Mecalac France • Triple-Boom System, Tadano Faun GmbH gle-family houses and apartment complexes through to multi-story buildings. Friedr. Ischebeck GmbH of Ennepetal, Germany, will present a new 30-kN prop with an external aluminum tube and a tubular steel threaded spindle. The special aspect of this prop is a quick adjustment nut normally found in steel props. Thanks to the special external aluminum tube profile, the new prop also features the option of elevation and reinforcement with aluminum stiffening frames. Based on the model in other industries, the construction industry is also increasing- ly striving to create a chain from planning and construction through to the operation of buildings. The key phrase here is Building Information Modeling (BIM). Steinach, Ger- many, manufacturer Paschal is heading in this direction with its already tested form- work software Paschal-Plan light (PPL). It supports the planning and implementation process for concrete structures throughout the entire construction period. According to the company, the practical experience of Paschal itself and many other users has been included in the adapted ver- sion that will be presented at bauma. One new feature is the "ceiling formwork" mod- ule; in-situ concrete ceiling formwork and filigree ceiling supports can be produced automatically. The shoring system is also dimensioned based on the calculation in DIN EN 12812. According to Paschal, 3D models can be produced quickly and easily using the "Design" module. With just one click, users can generate a cross-system materi- al list from the parameters in the 3D mod- el. The "Warehouse" model can be used to administer the entire stock of formwork and machines transparently—on both a building site and in a building yard.
