With a focus on “creating connections,” Komatsu will debut several new product and technology advancements to support construction, waste, forestry, energy and aggregate industries at ConExpo in March.

Across its more than 3,700 square metre exhibit space, Komatsu will demonstrate how technology, data, equipment and service solutions leverage digitalization to control costs, timelines and resources.

As well, the manufacturer and service provider plans to unveil patent-pending technology and equipment at two events planned during the show.

Komatsu machines and tech on display

Komatsu will display about 25 machines, including models brand-new to the North American market, as well as machines that have been recently introduced.

In addition to construction, Komatsu plans to focus on solutions for the quarry, energy, waste and forestry sectors.

The exhibit will include:

  • Dozers: D51i-24, D61i-24, D155AX-8 LGP
  • Excavators: PC238USLC-11, PC290LCi-11, PC360LCi-11, PC490LCi-11, PC1250-11
  • Trucks: HM400-5, HD605-8
  • Wheel loaders: WA320-8, WA480-8, WA500-8
  • Motor grader: GD655-7 
  • HAC high-angled conveyor
  • Conveyor idler stand
  • Forklift FH80-2
  • Reclaim feeder RF-5
  • Feller Buncher XT465L-5

New technology offerings include My Komatsu, an all-inclusive digital e-commerce solution for fleet management, equipment monitoring and parts ordering, accessible from any connected device.

Among the machines featured on the floor will be D51i-24 and D61i-24 dozers configured with patent-pending proactive dozing control.

The industry-first technology enables operators to use machine control from “grass to grade.” As the machine moves, it records terrain data. Using real-time conditions and that terrain data, the system makes calculated decisions about whether to cut and carry material, spread or fill that material, or whether to perform finish grading.

Educational seminars

Komatsu is also delivering an educational training seminar on Wednesday, March 11, at 1 p.m., on Equipment Operator Best Practices for quarry managers and site foremen to have a better understanding of how to maximize machine operation efficiencies.

On Friday, March 13, at 9:30 a.m., Komatsu experts will host Autonomous Haulage: Lessons Learned from Surface Mining. The seminar will share lessons learned and current best practices for successful implementation of autonomous haulage technologies in varied environments.

Both seminars take place at Westgate, Pavilion 10.
