On the road at the Interalpin


In April, after a four-year break due to the coronavirus, the 24th edition of INTERALPIN took place at the Innsbruck Congress Center and underlined its unbroken global strength and appeal as the world's leading trade fair.

For three days, the Alpine metropolis became the center of the ropeway and alpine technology industry for over 35,000 trade visitors from all over the world. Among them were BUSSE customers such as Prinoth, Kässbohrer, Reichmann, Skadii and many more - from a total of 650 exhibiting companies. Evamaria Plehn and Carina Dietrich spent a day at INTERALPIN to see the impressive innovations, concepts and solutions in addition to talking to regular customers. With its focus on digitalization and sustainability, the international event not only spoke to BUSSE but also directly from the "development heart".

In addition to the technical innovations, which were demonstrated in snow management both in the snow groomer and in the remote maintenance of snow cannons, the focus of the manufacturers is on a comfortable and ergonomically optimized workplace. In order to place successful products on the market as a key player or newcomer, self-explanatory usability and the use and integration of digital interfaces and data are paramount.

Evamaria and Carina took a seat in the cockpit and got to grips with various programs in order to understand the extensive tasks and requirements that the employees of a ski resort, for example, are confronted with on a daily basis. In this way, usage scenarios become clear and can be understood and taken into account during development.

They are working on electric and hydrogen drives to make use of the ever decreasing amount of snow and to produce artificial snow as sustainably as possible. Highly complex instruments for measuring snow using satellites and drones are becoming important tools for the future. Numerous alternative solutions are also being developed and refined in order to make alpine tourism, which increases during the year, both attractive and sustainable.

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."
