Big 5: Competition time at PMV Live action area
PMV Live’s action zone is providing the backdrop for a series of high-octane demonstrations, including an excavator challenge hosted by M H Al Mahroos
M H Al Mahroos hosted an excavator challenge during PMV Live, the construction equipment exhibition collocated with The Big 5.
Contestants climbed aboard one of the Bahrain-based equipment distributor’s mini-excavators to score a series of mechanical slam dunks in as short a time as possible.
Speaking during the event, Talal Al Mahroos, marketing manager at the company, said: “The leader board shows those with the quickest time in the excavator challenge, and it’s great to see so many people enjoy the spirit of the competition while they get to know the workings of the machine.”
Al Mahroos was not the only highlight from PMV Live’s action zone. Attendees cheered on Inter Equipment’s Guinness World Record-holding skip loader, as its operator attempted to perform tricks and beat the previous benchmark.
Meanwhile, DigiRobotics, KUKA’s official partner in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, offered visitors the chance to explore how robotics can be used to facilitate 3D-printing technologies with industrial applications. The firm also demonstrated its automated heavy-duty platforms for internal logistics, and high-speed metal-cutting lasers.
James Meltz, director of PMV Live and Middle East Concrete, said: “In addition to the thousands of products on display and the robust educational offering at this year’s show, we wanted to ensure that our visitors would be thoroughly entertained at the action zone.
“Thanks to our partnerships with some of the most innovative and forward-thinking companies in the industry, the action zone has truly lived up to its expectations,” he added.
