Industrial Machinery and Others


Segment Profit and Ratio

While sales of large presses and machine tools increased from the previous fiscal year, sales of wire saws dropped sharply from the previous fiscal year. Additionally, extraordinary demand for temporary housing units in the earthquake-destroyed regions came to an end. As a result, sales of the industrial machinery and others business declined by 13.9% from the previous fiscal year, to JPY216.2 billion (USD2,301 million). Segment profit decreased by 62.9% to JPY6.2 billion (USD66 million).

Komatsu concerted its efforts to develop new products with improved productivity, safety and environmental friendliness. In March this year, Komatsu embarked on sales of the H1F-2 AC Servo press and the PVS8525 AC Servo press brake, which followed the NTG-4SP grinding machine launched in November last year. With respect to the laser-cutting machine business, Komatsu carried out organizational restructuring in April 1, 2013 by consolidating development, sales and service functions of Komatsu NTC Ltd. at Komatsu Industries Corp. in order to effectively use overlapping corporate resources.
