Italian concrete manufacturing and handling equipment manufacturer Cifa has doubled its stand size at this years Bauma to 1,300m2 and will be showing a full range of equipment to celebrate its 70th year in business. It will be dominated by a 52m high, five section boom, K5 pump which is the first off the line of its newest and biggest model.

Cifa claims to be the leader in truckmixer concrete pumps of which it has made more than 3,000 since 1977. An innovation in 1997 is a joint project with Komatsu in Japan using the Cifa Spritz wet process sprayed concrete system, which has been widely used on major tunnelling projects. Special modifications had to be made for the Japanese work to ensure proper mixing of powdered additives, which are preferred locally to the fluid based materials normally used.

Recent major schemes on which Cifa has supplied equipment include the Lesotho Highlands water project.
