Bauer Maschinen's 2006 in-house exhibition in early May saw the launch of its Quattro Cutter, a new addition to the company's Cutter Soil Mixing (CSM) system. The machine has four cutter wheels which mix soil and cement slurry in-situ to produce the final soil-cement material. The two additional cutter wheels have been added to make withdrawing the unit from the mixed soil-cement material easier.

Also on show at the company's Schrobenhausen, Germany head-quarters was its new flagship BG 40 large diameter rotary drilling rig. Equipped with a 40 tonne capacity winch, the BG 40 can reach depths of up to 120 m using a six-piece Kelly attachment.

Also on display was a BG 25 C from Bauer's Chinese production plant. Critical components such as rotary drives, masts and winches are made in Germany, with manufacture and assembly of the final rig in China in strict compliance with Bauer's quality standards. The company says this allows it to produce very cost-effective and high-quality rigs.

At the lighter end of the range, Bauer's Klemm subsidiary exhibited a new jet grouting and soil nail rig, based on its anchor drills. The compact MBG can also be provided as a lorry-mounted unit. Also on display was the RB 8 from Prakla Bohrtechnik, which has been designed specifically for geothermal boreholes. The 8 tonne unit can drill holes between 100 and 150 m deep, and will be of interest to the geothermal heating sector.

According to Bauer, more than € 21 million worth of equipment was on display at the in-house exhibition, and the event attracted 2000 visitors from 48 countries.
