Komatsu will introduce its Smart Construction set of services at the Samoter Lab.
It will be explained all the pros of Smart Construction and how can it make our business more profitable. A simple question as: How do we do that? Is easily answered on the spot… Smart Construction applies IoT tools, software technologies and data analytics to improve jobsite efficiency throughout the whole construction cycle. Komatsu has introduced also the Smart Construction retrofit kit, a fast and cost-efficient way to enable your conventional machines to collect as-built and payload information. A PC138US-11 (Hall 8, booth B2-C7) and a PC30E (Samoter Lab) will be presented with retrofit kit.
It will be highlighted the importance of Komtrax (a free service for Komatsu customers), an experience that Komatsu has started 20 years ago and that today delivers to our customers a fast-track access to Industry 4.0.
Introduced in 2006, Komtrax is Komatsu’s state of the art wireless monitoring system. It gives us an easy way to track our machines, monitor their performance and stay up to date about the status of the equipment. Komtrax is now factory-fitted on every new Komatsu machine. Can I receive notifications for any unusual location changes? Can I activate the engine lock preventing unauthorized usage? How can I avoid fuel theft? These issues are all tackled by Komtrax.
And last but not less important in the Komtrax service panorama, the latest Komtrax plus.
Komtrax ISO API (Application Programming Interface) is an ISO 15143-3 compliant server to server data transfer solution that lets your system access your Komtrax data directly. You can import your machine data into your own system, consolidate your fleet in a single platform and combine key Komtrax data with your existing data. Komatsu understands the value of Komtrax data for our customers, and how it helps our distributors to support them. Komatsu treat telematic data with great care and responsibility and is fully compliant with General Data Protection Regulation.
For the 2023 event, the company will put on display several machines with an “i” designation in the model’s name—with the “i” standing for intelligent. Where “intelligent” stands for “data connected”. That “i” connection is there to help the unskilled operators as well as contractors, providing them productivity-enhancing automation along with cutting edge job site design.
We will see a D61EXi-24 and a PC210LCi-11 operating in the digital worksite and a PC290NLCi-11 and a GD675-7 with 3D Topcon will be showcased indoor.
25 Komatsu machines, on the overall, will be presented during the Samoter fair. And the HB365NLC-3 could not be missing the show since it was and still is to the present day the “iconic” eco-friendly machine excavator.
Komatsu Hybrid system is at the forefront in cutting emissions since 1999. The fully electric Komatsu hybrid system employs regenerative braking, via the swing generator-motor, to transform kinetic energy, during swing deceleration, into electrical energy that is stored in the ultra-capacitor. The recovered energy stored in the ultra-capacitor, can then power the electrical swing system, or help accelerate the diesel engine through the motor-generator mounted between the engine and pump. During these times of environmental awareness, the undeniable benefits provided by Komatsu Hybrid excavators help to reduce the construction industry’s impact on environment.
Hall 8 will host also the BR380JG-3 mobile jaw crusher. The BR380JG-3 has a unique CO2 off setting scheme, which is applied to each and every one sold in Europe.
In the static area, a PC170 with blade will grab the attention of experts in the field, it is regarded as a more than welcomed new option that increases machine versatility even more. There will be the queen of wheel loaders, the WA475-10 showcased in the aggregate configuration with the new Submonitor.
The Submonitor creates a new interface for the operator to interact with the machine’s assist systems; that include an Extended Load-Pilot, a new Rear Supervision system with high-definition camera and rear radar obstacle detection, and an all new, performance boosting Efficiency Trainer module.
Customers have plenty of reasons to visit Komatsu booth and feel the Komatsu way at Samoter 2023.
