Komatsu to focus on future technologies at Bauma 2022


Event attendees will also get a first look at upcoming innovations in Komatsu wheel loaders through an exclusive virtual stand

Komatsu will use Bauma to focus on future technologies in response to rising concerns of global climate change, the manufacturer has revealed. As part of its line-up, Komatsu will display a range of electrified machines including a fully electric, remote-controlled mini excavator that was announced as a concept machine last year.

Among the other highlights will be the ‘PC01E-1’ electric micro excavator introduced to the Japanese market earlier this year, as well as a three-tonne class electric mini excavator, which is a model change of the ‘PC30E-5’ introduced to the Japanese market in March 2021.

In June 2022, Komatsu said it would expand autonomous technology on haul trucks by 2024 and, later in the month, the firm acquired Swedish attachments manufacturer Bracke.

According to the manufacturer, event attendees will also get a first look at upcoming innovations in Komatsu wheel loaders through an exclusive virtual stand, while its Earthbrain technology will show a new way of working, with unique solutions to support and improve your business.

“These days, effective digitalisation is often another essential request from our customers, and it is also a focus for Komatsu. The Komtrax Next Generation and Komtrax Data Analytics booths will also explain how Komatsu’s wireless monitoring system can simplify decision-making for all those who work to deploy equipment effectively or to improve fuel efficiency, to maximise productivity or to plan periodic maintenance,” the firm concluded.

In July 2022, Cummins and Komatsu said they would collaborate on zero-emissions mining haul trucks.
