September 13, 2021 — Soft rock longwall mine operations face challenges when it comes to increasing production. To help address those challenges, Komatsu is developing, and at MINExpo 2021 will showcase, systems and components that can enable less human intervention and help customers move to a remotely managed longwall face with equipment automatically making low-level changes and providing advice.
Longwall mining solutions that will be on display at the Komatsu booth (#7027) include:
Komatsu partners with customers to create complete custom-engineered and remotely managed longwall systems to meet the challenges of longer faces and tougher conditions, while also controlling costs. Joy longwall systems are setting production records in mines around the world.
Located in Central Hall C3, the Komatsu booth (#7027) at MINExpo 2021 will feature the company’s unified and expanded mining offerings. Additional solutions will be highlighted at neighboring booths for Modular Mining, a Komatsu technology brand (Booth #7671), and Immersive Technologies (Booth #7583) and Hensley Industries (Booth #5401), both Komatsu subsidiaries.
