The world’s largest machinery show lived up to its reputation, with record breaking numbers in attendance for 2016. That’s over half a million visitors to Munich to see machinery products, developments and innovations on a record 605,000 square meters of exhibition space. The visitor numbers were up by 9% this year and they came from over 200 countries to see a total of 3,423 exhibitors. The Irish contingent were there in force, amongst them General Manager Conal Mullan and Sales Representative Raymond Murphy from Ormonde Machinery.

Ormonde Machinery were delighted to get the opportunity to meet up with colleagues from Ireland and around the world.

As the sole dealer for Terex Finlay, Edge, Portafill, Bruce, Rapid and Matec in Ireland, Ormonde Machinery were busy visiting their partner’s stands most of which had a significant presence at the exhibition. For Ormonde’s agents, this triennial exhibition was an opportunity to showcase their latest innovations and to introduce the newest technologies.

Terex Finlay was well represented at Bauma with the I-140 being the focus of this year’s show for the Northern Irish manufacturer.  There was strong interest during the week for Terex Finlay’s new I-140 direct drive 1,270mm x 1,240mm  horizontal impact crusher. The model offers variable speed for production in recycling, mining and quarrying applications, along with significantly improved flow of material due to increasing the width of components as the material moves through the machine. Furthermore, the I-140’s robust and proven Terex CR032 chamber is said to give excellent reduction ratios and high consistency of product shape.
