Prototypes

Below we listed some prototypes which manufacturers have developed. We encourage interested parties and potential buyers to inquire about prototypes and to ask for further plans, as some companies develop prototypes for marketing purposes or specific occasions (e.g. the BAUMA trade fair) without moving into serial production. We are not accusing the following manufacturers of any of this, we just want to be as transparent as possible about reappearing trends in the sector.
