What are the organizational surprises we can expect from you at Bauma CONEXPO INDIA 2016: Are you looking to launch any new innovative product or new breakthrough technologies at Bauma CONEXPO INDIA 2016? Are you also looking for new collaborations and tie - ups?

Schwing Stetter as a company stays always focused in introducing the latest state of the art technologies that is required for the construction industry especially in India. Our group has 82 years’ experience in seeing the progress of various countries like Germany, USA, most of the Western Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, China, South Korea, etc which are now developed markets.

We believe in introducing products with the technology which the market is prepared to absorb. To elaborate this, the manpower availability, the need for completing the construction faster are some of the key parameters which will prepare the market to absorb the product specifications that will help them meet the requirement. It is pointless to bring the most advanced machineries when there is absolutely no need for speed, scale or skill in a particular market. We are careful, to bring the technology which matches with the market aspirations. We would not like to overdo and kill a product prematurely in the process. Therefore, we have addressed the current requirement by launching our new products.

In Bauma Conexpo India 2016, Schwing Stetter India will be launching a slew of new products. These products are for different needs like batching concrete, transporting concrete, pumping concrete, recycling concrete and shotcreting concrete. But this year, we will be specially addressing the key focus areas of Government of India in the area of Clean India or Swachh Bharat and Skill India. Towards those Goals, we will be displaying Smartec sludge pump, which will be of great help in projects like cleaning of Ganga, metro rail construction, waste water management and smart cities.

Similarly, our training simulators will offer opportunity to the operators to move onto virtual experience and simulation to train them in safety and operation of concrete boom pumps. This will be a one step forward compared to the current learning with the graphics. Also, we will be showcasing a Heavy duty stationary pump SP 4507 for the first time. SP 4507 is a new development for the present trend of high rise pumping requirement especially in growing real estate markets like India and abroad. This new age pump bridges the gap between SP3800 and SP4800 capacity pumps. This will cater to high rise segment where the present challenges of pumping the mix with stiff consistencies at a faster rate to around 300m vertical.


  • The pump develops 203 bar pressure on concrete and delivers an output of 54m3/hr in high pressure configuration.
  • The pump kit and rock valve of the SP 4507 each have their own hydraulic circuit. It helps to handle high grade mix. The full power of the pump kit will be available - regardless of the switching movements of the rock. This ensures a quiet pump behaviour, high pumping capacity and protection of the components with less vibration.
  • The new generation ‘rock’ comes with high efficient energy transfer on the concrete.
  • New operator interface and emergency pressure release system will ensure safe operating environment.

We will also be launching a slew of products recycling plant RA20, 5 tonne external climbing flat top tower crane XGT T80, 1.8 tonne wheel loader LW180K, motor grader GR 150 II, truck mounted crane QY85KA-Y, piling rig XR130E, crank arm type aerial lift platform GTBZ14J, crank arm type aerial work platform GTJZ08 and horizontal directional drilling machine XZ450 plus.


Give us an understanding of your company’s performance this year and your outlook going forward?

We are experiencing a growth in 2016 and we hope to consolidate this growth and augment capacity to give our delivery commitment to the customers. We are also expanding our after sales network close to our jobsites to ensure uninterrupted support in spare parts and services.
