For bauma 2022 in Munich, Cat construction equipment will be displayed by Cat dealer Zeppelin inside and outside Hall B6, under the theme 'Let’s Do The Work'
The overarching message will expand beyond the equipment to highlight Caterpillar’s broad range of technology, services and sustainability solutions.
The exhibit will feature more than 70 pieces of Cat equipment and attachments from Caterpillar Construction Industries (CI). Separately, the Caterpillar Industrial Power Systems Division (IPSD) will display multiple Cat engines from its diverse product range, from 0.5L to 30L, in Hall A4, stand 336.
From a single machine to an entire mixed fleet, the Caterpillar technology ecosystem gives customers the power to track, monitor, automate, and manage assets to lower costs, improve productivity and optimise fleet utilisation. Among the multiple technologies on display at bauma 2022, the Cat Command Station enables operators to work remotely and safely, nearby the site or many kilometres away, seated in a virtual cab with familiar controls and display. Attendees will be able to sit in the Command Station and operate a machine remotely.
Accessed via laptops and mobile devices, Cat Productivity will be on display demonstrating an easy to implement cloud-based application that provides a complete overview of machine and jobsite production. It is a data rich tool that delivers consolidated and actionable site-level information to analyse performance and improve productivity.
Cat Grade with Assist for excavators uses machine position sensors and operator-defined depth and slope parameters to automate boom and stick movements for more accurate cuts with less effort to help increase operator efficiency. The Cat PL161 has been designed for asset tracking and work tool recognition.
With more than 1.2 million connected assets capturing and reporting machine operating data, Cat dealers can offer customers solutions like VisionLink to help increase uptime and maximiSe profitability. Attendees will experience many services choices at bauma. One key offering is Customer Value Agreements (CVA) which provide customers hassle-free ownership of their new and used equipment to help reduce owning and operating costs.
Bauma 2022 attendees will also learn about the hundreds of new Cat Reman and Rebuild product offerings as well as the range of repair options that lower equipment owning costs. Cat equipment is built to be rebuilt, and Cat Rebuild services run 350 separate tests, and recondition or replace up to 7,000 parts during a Cat Certified machine Rebuild to return it to a like-new condition at a fraction of the cost of a new machine. The Cat 982M wheel loader on display is a Cat Certified Rebuild, built to deliver optimized performance with Cat Advansys GET (Ground Engagement Tools).
Full range of equipment
The exhibit will include different model platforms – from XE models built for performance with the latest technologies and/or advanced drive systems to GC models designed to deliver rugged reliability and value – to effectively meet a broad range of customer needs and applications.
Highlights of the Caterpillar Building
Construction Products (BCP) division display include nine next generation Cat mini hydraulic excavators, all delivering increased performance, higher breakout forces, longer service intervals, and lower owner and operating costs compared to prior models. From the 1- to 10-tonne models, these mini excavators offer common features and consistent controls layout to simplify training and operator adaptation. The 3.5- to 10-tonne next generation models can now be equipped with Cat Grade technologies as an aftermarket option.
The nearly 30 displayed Caterpillar Global Construction & Infrastructure (GCI) models are anchored by nine tracked and four wheeled next generation excavators ranging in capacity from 15 to 95 tonnes, a rail-road excavator and three material handlers. The 980 XE medium wheel loader features a continuously variable transmission (CVT) delivering increased fuel efficiencies up to 35% compared to the M series models, plus it has an expanded technology platform to increase machine performance.
To move large volumes of materials, the Hall B6 stand also includes articulated and off-highway trucks with capacities ranging from 30 to 70 tonnes and Cat 992 and 988K XE large wheel loaders. Recent updates to the 988K XE with electric drive give the loader faster downhill speeds, improved rimpull, and increased hydraulic breakout force for up to 5% better production over the previous 988K XE model.
Team members from Cat Financial will be available to discuss the latest leasing and financing programs as well as extended protection packages to help secure customers’ investments. Whether they are looking for new or used Cat machines or for repair/rebuild options to keep their current machines operational, Cat Financial experts will help customers make the right decision to support their business – no matter how large or small.
