Komatsu Surface and Underground Mining Equipment and Services
Komatsu manufactures and markets high-productivity solutions through its surface and underground business segments for the mining industry.
Energy, industrial and hard rock mineral mining solutions
Komatsu supplies products and related services, which are used extensively for the mining of energy, industrial and hard rock minerals.
The company solves tough mining challenges by providing solutions designed to safely increase production while lowering operating costs.
The firm also offers a variety of continuous miners, such as air-scrubbers, wethead cutterhead drums, AC traction motors, noise reducing conveyor systems and hydraulics manifolds.
More than 6,000 continuous miners have shipped since 1948, including the multi-motor shearer for longwall shearers. The company also provides a high-level of face automation for its longwall systems, providing customers with safe and consistent operation.
Electric rope shovels for high-efficiency mining projects
Komatsu’s P&H electric rope shovel is a robust solution for high-production, high-efficiency mining operations.
P&H electric shovels are designed and built to move more material at a lower cost per tonne.
The company’s reliable and productive loading machines are easy-to-maintain and combine traditionally rugged P&H mechanical systems and increasingly smart, fast control systems.
Robust and reliable equipment for hard rock mining
Through the acquisition of Mining Technologies International (MTI) and Montabert, Komatsu now offers a variety of reliable, robust equipment for working with hard rock minerals.
With the addition of Montabert, Komatsu now also offers drifter conversions for the hard rock market, as well. These result in improved reliability, reduced production and consumable costs, improved penetration rates, and decreased noise levels and maintenance costs.
A comprehensive knowledge of shock wave transmission and percussion mechanism theory has allowed Montabert engineers to develop new concepts, such as progressive blow energy and hydraulic dampening. Montabert drifters are compatible on all major and most OEM machines.
The company also is working on introducing several improved hard rock product designs, including its new 16TD truck. Komatsu’s hard rock ready trucks and loaders are designed with operator safety, reliability and ease-of-use in mind.
Maintenance, equipment and system performance of key mining operations
Komatsu is known for its direct service model, which allows the company to provide customers with maintenance, equipment and system performance, and training.
The company has 150 locations in 20 countries, allowing it to be close to customers and areas of key mining projects. In 2015, it opened new mining service centers in La Joya, Arequipa, Peru, and in Kemerovo, Russia.
Komatsu had sales of nearly $4bn in 2014 and has 14,000 employees worldwide. The company is headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The company has made a number of strategic acquisitions over the years, to enhance its product offerings.
The 2008 purchase of Continental Global brought conveyor systems, which are suitable for transporting coal, iron ore, gypsum, aggregates, and other bulk materials, such as cement, lime, food products, and industrial waste.
