bauma 2019: REMA TIP TOP presents integrated industry solutions developed in Germany

Poing, March 27, 2019. Over 3,500 exhibitors from 55 countries, 614,000 square meters of exhibition space and a goal of attracting more than 600,000 visitors: Even before the start of the fair on April 8, bauma is reporting record figures. Held at Messe München, the world’s leading trade fair for the construction and mining machinery industry traditionally serves as a home game and highlight of the trade fair calendar for REMA TIP TOP: This year, in Hall B2 at Stand 437, the company will be presenting itself with an innovative exhibition stand. On top of that, it will host a 320 m2 in-house exhibition at its headquarters in Poing, only 10 kilometers away from bauma. The focus is on integrated product and service solutions to increase sustainability and productivity along the customer’s entire value chain.

For 2019, bauma has defined sustainability in the construction and mining industries as one of its core themes. With its wear-resistant products, repair materials and services for the entire raw material extraction and conveyor technology, REMA TIP TOP can make an important contribution to this. “We produce products the customer can rely on in the long term: High-quality wear protection is an important component of our customers’ profitability, as material consumption is significantly reduced and service life is greatly increased,” says Günter Busse, Head of Global Product Management, in describing the possibilities that REMA TIP TOP offers. Critical system components exposed to higher loads such as material transfers in particular have optimization potential in many production processes.

In addition to product solutions, service is increasingly coming to the fore: At bauma, REMA TIP TOP will present a unique system for digital, proactive monitoring and maintainance of conveyor systems with modern sensor technology from REMA MCube and the associated REMA CCube software. The conveyor system goes through the cycle of “monitor," "maintain" and "manage" (MCube). The reporting that is based on this consists of the phases “command," "control" and "communicate" (CCube). Digital and cloud-based monitoring enables plant operators to detect and eliminate critical loads at an early stage in order to prevent belt damage. In addition to the service life of the material, productivity can also be increased: With REMA MCube downtime caused by unexpected damages such as longitudinal rips can be significantly reduced. Through a fast automatic shutdown the length of the damage is limited and the repair can be performed within a reasonable period – in the main conveyor section a decisive factor in securing availability and productivity of the entire system. For this purpose, REMA TIP TOP offers REMA TIP TOP conveyor belts of the brand DBP which are fitted with sensors, as well as electronic monitoring systems.

REMA TIP TOP in action: Live demonstration and factory tours

A highlight at the exhibition stand will be live demonstrations of RMS: The modular wear protection system guarantees long operating times with minimum maintenance requirements – even in demanding applications with broken or sharp-edged material. Visitors will be shown on site how, in the event of excessive strain, individual modules can be easily replaced upon an indication from the monitoring system – all without having to carry out a large-scale lining replacement. At bauma, REMA TIP TOP will also be presenting other products from the material processing sector that are optimally tailored to customer needs. Examples include REMALOX HD wear protection for absorbing impact energy, or the rubber lining material REMA PERFORMANCEgrip.

Less than 10 kilometers east from the bauma echibition grounds, REMA TIP TOP customers can get even more comprehensive information at the company’s own in-house exhibition on the premises of its headquarters in Poing: On more than 300 m2 of exhibition space, many more products and innovations from the material processing, surface protection, belting, and automotive sectors will be presented. A special highlight will be the morning factory tours where visitors can experience elastomer products from A to Z. Registration for these can be done via the new “REMA Connect” App. It has been available for download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for a few weeks now, and offers users product information, company updates and various value-added features relating to REMA TIP TOP’s trade fair appearances.
