bauma 2019

We are looking forward to your visit!

A must-attend event for anyone involved in the construction machinery industry. The international trade fair, which is regarded as a global innovation driver, only takes place every three years. Nowhere else can you find more new developments. It is therefore a matter of course that thyssenkrupp Steel's Heavy Plate Unit will be presenting its innovative grades here.

Come and visit us at bauma, the world's leading trade fair for construction machinery!
From 8 to 14 April 2019 you will find us in Hall A6, Booth 448.

For all those not willing to wait: Here you can already find interesting information about our heavy plate portfolio: The focus of this year's trade fair is on our versatile XAR® family with hardnesses from 300 to 600 HB. We have further improved the processability of the wear-resistant steels. Today, for example, they can be bent better thanks to optimized steel composition. We have also optimized the cutting and welding properties of some of the XAR® grades and increased their toughness, thus protecting them even better against impact loads. The lifespan of the structural components is thus extended.

In Munich, we will also be presenting our NA-XTRA®/XABO® high-strength fine-grain structural steels for economical lightweight construction with high load capacity and our perform® high-strength cold-forming steels that optimally combine strength and formability.

We are constantly developing our heavy plates for you so that we can offer you exactly what you need for your work. We are at your service - be it with the production of premium steel grades, the research and development of new, complex high-tech materials or with our extensive expertise. We listen, advise and develop for you, relying on intensive cooperation and close interaction. We (together) make (almost) everything possible.

All this and much more awaits you at the bauma in Munich. Here, we also present our comprehensive range of services: from resilience tests in our wear laboratory to innovative developments by our research department and support in processing issues through our application technology. Stop by, we are at your service: Munich Exhibition Centre, Hall A6, Booth 448.

We are looking forward to your visit!

2019 is bauma year!

The world's leading trade fair for the construction industry will take place in Munich from 8 to 14 April

It only takes place every three years, yet – or perhaps for this very reason – bauma is the world's leading industry event for construction machinery, building material machinery, mining machinery, construction vehicles and construction equipment. This is where the highest concentration of innovations is presented.

All the leading names in this field will be represented at bauma 2019. The trade fair is considered the most important multiplier in the industry. The venue is the spacious Munich exhibition grounds on the east side of the Bavarian capital.

Every three years thousands of exhibitors and hundreds of thousands of visitors meet in Munich-Riem to catch up on the trends of the future. This year these include, for example, alternative propulsion systems and autonomous driving of construction machinery, as well as novel products that advance digitisation in the construction industry.

For the first time this year, trade fair participants will even have the opportunity to experience their industry virtually – thanks to virtual and augmented reality.

  • approx. 614,000 m2 of exhibition space
  • approx. 3,500 exhibitors from 55 countries
  • an expected 600,000 visitors from over 200 countries

XAR® wear-resistant steels combine good processing properties with excellent wear resistance and, thanks to their extreme hardness and toughness, last longer than conventional structural steels.

Product details


In many constructions, the deployment of NA-XTRA® and XABO® high-strength special structural steels enables a reduction in sheet thickness and thus a reduction in material and processing costs as well as operating costs.

Product details


The steel grades of the perform® series have an excellent property profile with good cold formability, weldability and toughness. Best prerequisites for folding and bending with very small radii.
