Heavydrive at the BAU 2019


For the sixth time, Heavydrive GmbH presents at the world’s leading trade fair for architects, materials and systems in Munich. From 14 to 19 January 2019, visitors to the BAU in Munich can get information about Heavydrive’s products and customised transport and assembly solutions in Hall C3, Stand 124.


Highlights at the Heavydrive trade fair stand


The Tapfheim-based company specialises in the complicated assembly of extremely large and heavy panes measuring up to 24m and weighing up to 8 tonnes. To demonstrate the many possibilities of the different systems, Heavydrive has developed a special model for the BAU 2019.

Trade fair highlight: A 3D miniature construction site with
live demonstrations of extreme glass assembly solutions.



The Heavydrive team will hold live demonstrations showing the various uses of their cranes, suction systems and counterweight traverses for panes of up to 10 tonnes on their 3D-printed miniature construction site, the Extreme Glass Assembly Demo Box (scale 1:25). The model also illustrates the flexibility of the Heavydrive devices. The customisable systems can be adapted and combined, opening up a new dimension in modern architecture where it is possible to install increasingly large and heavy façade elements.

Experience live: tried-and-tested glass assembly aids with up to 1 tonne capacity

At Stand C3.124 there will also be a selection of different tried-and-tested Heavydrive assembly aids like the various ML assembly cranes and VSG vacuum suction systems. Heavydrive will also showcase some products from the patented HDL line, including the newest model.

With the glass transport wagon, panes can be transported safely and easily, even behind scaffolding and in tight spaces. Visitors can also experience live the tried-and-tested, semi-automatic pane installer, an all-rounder with up to 1 tonne capacity.
