Preview: BAUER Maschinen Group at bauma Conexpo Africa 2015

After its successful premiere two years ago, the construction equipment trade fair bauma Conexpo Africa will open its doors once again from 15 to 18 September 2015 in Johannesburg. The BAUER Maschinen Group – the world market leader in the development and manufacture of equipment for specialist foundation engineering – will participate this year as well, exhibiting machines especially selected for the South African market. The Bauer team is looking forward to greeting numerous visitors at stand T2-130 in the open-air area of the Johannesburg Expo Centre.


The core products in Bauer's portfolio are the rotary drilling rigs of the BG series. This very successful series of Bauer Maschinen will be represented by a BAUER BG 20 H PremiumLine. The performance characteristics of this compact, highly versatile rotary drilling rig are tailored to meet the typical specifications for this class of equipment. Above all, it shows the multifunctional concept of the BG rig series.

The exhibited BG 20 H will be equipped with a kelly bar which is capable of installing bored piles up to a depth of 40 meters. The machine is pre-fitted with the equipment needed to install and operate a heavy-duty hydraulic casing oscillator. With it, temporary drill pipes can be inserted in and removed from even difficult ground conditions. The BG 20 H is also equipped with the preliminary setup for installing piles with the double rotary method (FoW). With FoW-equipment bored pile walls as retaining walls for deep excavations can be constructed adjacent to neighboring buildings.

The wide application spectrum of specialist foundation engineering equipment will be demonstrated by two other machines manufactured by subsidiaries of BAUER Maschinen GmbH:

Hausherr System Bohrtechnik develops and manufactures hydraulic drilling rigs for use in quarries, open cast mines and the exploration of natural resources. 60 years of experience and continuous development in this field emphasize the technical competence. Hausherr machines are particularly well suited for down-the-hole drilling applications. All models of this series are also able to execute horizontal drilling operations. The HSB 3000 is a typical and powerful representative of a Hausherr series comprising nine models for drilling blastholes with a max. diameter of 165 mm to a depth of 45 m. It is powered by a diesel engine in the range of 290 to 350 kW and has an operating weight of about 25 tons.

Klemm Bohrtechnik, the specialist for anchor drilling rigs in the BAUER Maschinen Group, will demonstrate its competence by exhibiting the KR 909-1, a robust universal drilling rig in the 13-ton class. This machine has been specially designed for the varied applications in the small-diameter drilling sector.
