With more than 500,000 square meters of floor space and 3,400 exhibitors, the BAUMA is one of the largest and most impressive trade fairs in the world in the field of construction machines, mining equipment and machinery for structural engineering.

The voestalpine Steel Division introduced the alform® welding system as a highlight to the public. It is the world's first custom-matched system of steels and consumables for high-strength and ultra-high-strength welded structures.

High-strength alform® steels allow up to 60% weight savings in the manufacture of cranes and construction machinery.
