Caterpillar at Bauma 2016

All branches of industry, all leading manufacturers, all important innovations: Those who have been here before always come back. The World's Leading Trade Fair bauma is the leading platform for experts who deal with construction and building-material machines, construction vehicles, construction equipment and mining machines. The 31st Edition of the World's Leading Trade Fair bauma takes place in Munich from April 11–17, 2016. Once again, the 2013 exhibition set several new records—confirming yet again its leading role as the largest trade fair in the world.

Centigrade supported client Caterpillar during their introduction of “The Age of Smart Iron". This is Caterpillar's newest strategy to be the industry leader in digital solutions designed to improve productivity, efficiency, safety and profitability. 

“While we always love to showcase our machines and engines, we’re equally excited about what’s at the center of our exhibit: Caterpillar technology,” said Caterpillar Group President, Rob Charter. “This is not technology for technology’s sake. It is technology that’s focused on solving, and even anticipating, customer problems.  We’re taking the machines, locomotives, engines and parts we’re so well known for and making them smarter, while also equipping the people who operate them with data that makes them more productive, enhances safety and improves sustainability.”

Cat's Connect Technology section features  hardware and software available for Cat or competitive equipment that arms customers with information designed to help them optimize their operations. Specific construction technologies on display include:
LINK, a solution that captures vital performance and product health data and makes that data available on the web to guide decision-making.
GRADE and COMPACT, two productivity solutions that help operators move material faster, more accurately and with fewer passes.
PAYLOAD, an on-board system for trucks and loading tools that drives higher efficiency, shorter cycle times and lower cost per ton.  
Cat 360° Advantage, a collaboration between Caterpillar and Cat dealers to deliver a full complement of expertise, technology-enabled equipment and support services that address customers’ jobsite challenges.
Leverage Every Litre, an educational initiative with tools, tips and resources that help Caterpillar customers improve the fuel efficiency of their products and, as a result, increase its revenue from every liter of fuel burned.
Product Support Services that enhance the customer’s equipment investment and help maximize its value.
