Construction Equipment

The area of TiefbauLIVE will showcase a range of powerful machines that work under tough conditions to reliably meet the demanding requirements of road and channel construction. You will be able to see many of these construction machines live in action. Experience our civil engineering equipment up close or take control yourself at one of our model road and channel construction sites or demonstration stands.

Road construction


Pavers are undoubtedly one of the most important pieces of equipment for road construction. Road pavers are used to apply layers of sand, gravel, asphalt and concrete quickly and efficiently. The trade fair will showcase many of these machines. These include the concrete paver for roads made from concrete, along with the asphalt paver for asphalt surfaces. Also on show will be the compact asphalt paver, a special asphalt paver that combines the wearing and binder courses in a single process. Last but not least, you will also be able to see high-performance road wideners. At the area of TiefbauLIVE, you will discover the latest new developments in pavers for even greater precision and efficiency.

Milling machines

Powerful road milling machines remove layers of asphalt or concrete using two different processes: hot milling and cold milling. At the theme area of TiefbauLIVE, you will be able to see both road milling machines and soil milling machines, also known as soil stabilisers. These are used to improve soft ground through the addition of stabilising additives.


A feeder provides a steady supply of mixing material for the paver. The aim is to ensure a continuous supply so that the paving process can continue without interruption. The feeder acts as a link between the tipper and the paver. The mixing material is fed to the paver via a partially heated conveyor belt. The area of TiefbauLIVE will showcase a range of feeders with wheel or chain-driven mechanisms.


Compactors are used for levelling, filling and compressing. These heavy machines guarantee a maximum degree of compaction and efficient material transport. The requirements for degree of compaction or the respective substrate vary greatly, as does the range of compactors. At the area of TiefbauLIVE, the variety of road rollers ranges from typical three-wheel rollers, single-drum compactors, rubber-tyre and combination rollers to tandem vibrating rollers that ensure effective compaction with a high vibration frequency. More cost-effective solutions for smaller tasks include hand-operated duplex rollers, vibrating plates, vibratory rammers, or simple hand rammers.

Paving laying machines

Paving laying machines are used to efficiently lay large pavement surfaces. Thanks to a stone grabbing mechanism, they are able to effortlessly lay up to two square metres of paving surface at once. At the area of TiefbauLIVE, you can see many innovations in this area that allow for continuous laying of most kinds of paving surface. You can even have a go yourself under the guidance of the paving laying experts.

Further road construction machinery

The thematic focus TiefbauLIVE will showcase all of the machinery used to ensure smooth processes in road construction. These include modern cold mixing systems for cost-effective cold recycling. Also on show will be mastic asphalt cookers used to produce poured asphalt. There will also be heaters in various sizes for hot recycling processes for repairing damaged road surfaces. Alongside this, you will find a selection of binding agent spreaders and bitumen sprayers in the outdoor exhibition area "Peter-Gross-Bau Areal".

Noise and sound protection

Noise protection aims to protect people and the environment against disruptive noise emissions. This category covers active and passive noise protection. In road construction, active noise protection plays an important role. This includes the use of noise-minimising road surfaces or the erection of noise protection walls and barriers on heavily used roads and motorways. As new residential areas are built close to heavily used roads, noise protection is becoming increasingly important.

Machinery for road marking

Once a road has been constructed, attention turns to machinery for accurate marking. The trade fair will showcase a range of hand-operated and mechanical equipment for precise marking.

Road maintenance and repair

Construction work on heavily used roads inevitably leads to changes in traffic management. The area of TiefbauLIVE will showcase traffic management systems and road barriers from several manufacturers. These allow the flow of traffic to be managed safely and efficiently, while also complying with regulations and guidelines for road signage. The event will also feature road construction tools such as picks, shovels and paving slab carriers.

Channel construction

Trench shoring systems

In channel and pipeline construction, work needs to progress safely and efficiently. Trench shoring systems help ensure this. A range of shoring systems are available for different trench depths and widths for both new construction and renovation. Channel maintenance is also important. At the thematic area TiefbauLIVE, you will be able to see specialised channel maintenance machines that can be used efficiently even without excavation work.


Trenchers are powerful channel construction machines that use special cutting surfaces to dig trenches and channels. Trenchers vary in size from hand-operated portable trenchers and trailer attachments to tracked machines that are used to dig deep and wide trenches. You can see these giant machines in action at the model channel construction site at the trade fair.

Welding tractors

Welding tractors are an important piece of equipment in pipeline construction. These machines feature up to four welding stations for performing welding work in rough terrain. The area of TiefbauLIVE will feature several welding tractors in various performance classes for a range of requirements.

Pumps and lifting systems

Pumps and lifting systems are used to convey groundwater and wastewater. The thematic focus TiefbauLIVE will showcase the latest pumping systems for wastewater and sewage for both indoor and outdoor use, with the full range of output volumes on show.

Cable routing machines

The area TiefbauLIVE will showcase modern cable routing machines from several manufacturers and retailers that allow users to route cable quickly and cleanly in loose and medium substrates. These systems enable the easy installation of several metres of cable at depths of up to five centimetres.

Drainage systems

The area of TiefbauLIVE will also feature a range of drainage solutions that ensure rainwater can enter the corresponding channels and wastewater systems. You will be able to view and test a variety of rainwater drainage components, including cisterns and soakaways.

Pipeline construction

Pipeline construction covers the construction of pipes for irrigation and drainage channels. Drainage pipelines are used to remove wastewater and rainwater, and are often enclosed and installed underground. The thematic focus TiefbauLIVE will feature a wide range of channel construction machinery and tools used in pipeline construction.

Filters and sieves

A variety of filters, sieves and filtering systems will also be on show, designed to prevent blockages in channels. Custom filters and sieves can also be produced upon request to cater to individual requirements.

Separator systems

The trade fair will feature a range of sophisticated separator systems for separating fats and light liquids, along with kitchen waste or sand in wastewater. These systems are a legal requirement for restaurants, cafés and petrol stations. They must be checked every 5 years and renovated if necessary. Separator system experts will be on hand to tell you about the latest legal requirements. You can even take a testing tool with you.
