Komatsu at Intermat 2018Published 3/7 at 12:39
Komatsu Europe launched a number of new products at Intermat this spring. More than 30 Komatsu machines were displayed on an indoor 3,200 m² stand in Hall 5B, with Komatsu’s technologies also being demonstrated live on a 2,000 m² outdoor area.
Komatsu’s intelligent machine control technology took centre stage. The PC210LCi‐11 excavator with an automated tilt bucket, and a D61PXi‐24 dozer displayed this development which was a major development for the industry on its launch in 2013. The Komatsu intelligent machine control system has been developed to boost the efficiency of Komatsu machines, thereby improving competitiveness.
Launched a decade ago, Komatsu’s hybrid technology is said to be unique, delivering reliable and advanced performance. It was represented at Intermat by the powerful and quiet HB365NLC‐3, in ‘narrow’ configuration. Now with over 4,000 hybrid models sold worldwide, it is said that the models have assisted customers to reduce their carbon footprint and fuel consumption by up to 30%.
Komatsu’s growing range of MR‐5 utility excavators was also showcased. These hi tech and versatile tools are designed to work in tight areas. The demonstration area featured the PC390HRD‐11 demolition excavator in action, as well as a display featuring the efficiency of Komatsu’s intelligent machine control.
