Komatsu to Present Innovations at Bauma 2013

At the BAUMA 2013 international trade fair, in Munich on April 15- 21 2013, Komatsu Europe International n.v. will showcase their industry leading technologies, fuel efficient machines and exclusive products and services, all designed and manufactured to provide customers with an advanced and complete solution to run a successful business in the earthmoving industry.

In a world premiere, Komatsu will present a new dozer and an excavator built around Komatsu’s revolutionary concept of intelligent Machine Control (iMC), which can change the future of the construction business.

At Bauma 2013, these 2 exclusive machines will demonstrate in a live performance how they will help customers enhance their productivity, reduce costs of operations and improve job site safety.

On the 4500m² indoor stand, Komatsu’s ground breaking HB215LC-1 Hybrid Excavator, the first “green” machine of its kind, already at work on hundreds of job sites around the world, will no doubt once again be a main attraction for all visitors of the Bauma fair.

Three other new machines, with EU Stage IIIB engines (S3B) and featuring the latest innovations aimed towards improving customer profitability, will be presented to the public for the first time: the WA320-7 and WA470-7 wheel loaders, and the PC138US-10 excavator.

A total of 28 other machines, representative of the complete Komatsu range, will be available to the public, many also recently launched on the market with Komatsu’s S3B emission-reducing technology.

All Komatsu services will be highlighted, and visitors will learn more about how Komatsu’s high-tech product support and dealer and customer services such as Komatsu CARE, Dealer Qualified Used Machines and Komatsu Genuine Parts can help improve a business.

More information will be given about Komatsu Financial Europe, and a special space dedicated to KOMTRAX™, Komatsu’s exclusive wireless monitoring system, and to the latest upgrades available as standard on Komatsu machines. The mining corner, and a true cabin of PC8000 mining excavator, will certainly draw a lot of attention.

Outside the hall, an additional 1000 m² outdoors demo area will host the 2 new iMC machines.

There, a driver’s bar, a Komatsu shop and an interactive excavator simulator will welcome visitors. Also showcased will be a 56 tonne / 29m³ mining Komatsu bucket.

A press conference is scheduled on April 16 at 14.00 hrs during which Mr. Kunio Noji, Chairman of Komatsu Ltd., will present his view on the future direction of the company.

Ms Fujiwara, Managing Director and CEO of Komatsu Europe International says: “We all look forward to BAUMA 2013 as an exceptional event where Komatsu can share our ground breaking concepts and innovations for the success of our customers with the industry and the world
