Komatsu Innovative Mining Equipment and Solutions
Komatsu is pushing the mining industry forward. We focus on creating innovative technology and solutions that are energy efficient and safe. Our commitment and dedication to our customers drive our pursuit of excellence.
Personal proximity detection systems
At Komatsu, we always put the safety of operators, service personnel, manufacturers and other mine employees first. We create our products with the highest standards and we provide essential technologies and services to protect workers while making mining more efﬁcient and cost-effective.
Our personal proximity detection systems are just one example of how we are revolutionizing safety on mine sites. We fit each worker with a tag that works with our system to monitor his or her movements through the mine, alerting them to potential hazards such and moving machinery, unstable environments and even respirable dust. This information is also sent to provide even more protection to operators and personnel.
We understand that people are mining’s most valuable resource and no amount of production or deadline is worth risking a worker’s safety. We are proud of our commitment to driving the industry towards zero harm.
Smart Solutions and The Internet of Things (IIoT)
Our company prides itself on innovation. We are always looking at ways we can use technology to pioneer new products and services for our customers, as well improve existing ones.
Smart Solutions is designed to help mining sites track machine usage, predict when to schedule preventative maintenance and improve overall efficiency while reducing costs. With that in mind, we’ve embraced the Internet of Things (IIoT) to help maximize our potential.
We are using the IIoT to grow our Smart Solutions offerings by allowing us to process more data at a higher rate so we can continuously monitor equipment and mine sites. This ability to access real-time data and analytics results in reduced downtime and improved overall performance and efficiency for customers.
Our commitment to quality and reliability is part of everything we do, making it possible to provide the mining industry with the best solutions available.
We engage with customers at their work site so that we can thoroughly understand their needs and develop new products, technologies and services that make mining safer and more efﬁcient.
Our ideas are inspired by the needs at each site have become part of our integrated approach to research, development and design; resulting in groundbreaking advancements for the mining industry, including fully automated haulage solutions, and advanced ﬂeet monitoring and management systems.
We are committed to being indispensable partners in the mining industry and believe our success is dependent on our customers’ success. We see our customers’ needs ﬁrsthand and help them go beyond what is necessary, to what is possible.
