Individual and modular solutions for the construction sector

Hering at the InnoTrans innovation trade fair

Like every 2 years, InnoTrans, the world’s largest trade fair for innovations in the railway infrastructure industry opened its doors in Berlin on 18.09.2018. This year’s motto was “THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY” and new products and railway vehicles were presented to the public for the 1st time.

Exhibitors from more than 60 countries and new record attendance speak for themselves. Members from the Hering Group of companies also invited potential customers. With almost 800 visits booked before the fair itself, we were expecting high customer attendance at our stand.

We were able to inspire our visitors thanks to our many innovations: among other things, we presented a new intelligent person guidance system on system platforms, which we have made construction ready thanks to SIUT. The eye-catching item on our stand was a huge wall photo with our platform roof and one of the 125 crane construction series KIROW KRC 810. Incidentally, with 13 rail-bound cranes, Hering is the provider with the largest fleet in Europe!

As for the “4.0” subject, we were able to show interested planners construction time animations linked with 3D planning in REVIT, which generated a great deal of interest. Our other niche products for the public rail transport areas, such as system roofs and mobile/temporary noise protection were also very popular.

The many technical discussions with our key customers from DB Netz AG, DB Station&Service AG and design engineering offices and construction companies resulted in new lines of thoughts and ultimately some potential for new construction projects using systems from our company. There was a crowd at our stand during the exhibitor’s evening on Wednesday at the fair, but it was not the only time. In any event, it was well worth the effort. Once the fair ended on Friday, the real work actually started for us with the evaluation of the hundreds of fair reports and of course the TO Dos that resulted from it.

Special tribute should be paid to the great commitment of “Hering” in the railway construction and systems sectors – a wonderful team performance!
