Komatsu to show 25 machines at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
The company will introduce products and advancements to support the construction, waste, forestry, energy and aggregates industries
Among the machines featured on the floor will be D51i-24 and D61i-24 dozers configured with patent-pending proactive dozing control. This 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.
The company will also demonstrate how technology, data, equipment and service solutions leverage digitalization to control costs, timelines and resources. Technology offerings to appear at the show include My Komatsu, a digital e-commerce solution for fleet management, equipment monitoring and parts ordering, accessible from any connected device.
Additionally, Komatsu will conduct an educational training seminar onfor quarry managers and site foremen to have a better understanding of how to maximize machine operation efficiencies. Experts will host an additional educational training seminar to share lessons learned and current best practices for successful implementation of autonomous haulage technologies in varied environments.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
