Modular Mining open-technology platform

New Mining Technology Solutions team brings together global expertise


August 18, 2021 — Advancing toward its smart mining vision for customers where mining environments are connected, interoperable ecosystems that bring together the customer’s chosen equipment and technologies to accelerate value delivery and empower innovation, Komatsu today announced further alignment of its mining business segments to best serve the needs of its global customer base.

Komatsu’s new Mining Technology Solutions team brings together experts from across its businesses to focus on rapid technology advancement. This new business unit includes the Modular Mining brand; a Komatsu technology brand focused on real-time digital offerings that are compatible with all makes of equipment. As part of this evolution, the MineWare brand is being discontinued and its Argus and Pegasys solutions will now be part of the Modular Mining brand portfolio. All MineWare and Modular Mining employees have been integrated into the new Mining Technology Solutions team.

Aligned around common goals of being more agile and collaborative, increasing efficiencies and leveraging the full capacity of Komatsu’s mining experience, the Mining Technology Solutions team has been developing the new Intellimine Synergy open-technology platform as part of the Modular Mining technology portfolio to debut at MINExpo International on Sept. 13 in Las Vegas. Designed to collect, integrate and process data in real time, Intellimine Synergy is on track to be an industry first for offering customers a single source of actionable insights through an open-technology platform that brings together data from all relevant Komatsu, Modular Mining and third-party machines, mining processes, systems and technology applications.

“The number of data sources available to our customers now can be overwhelming,” said Jeffrey Dawes, President and CEO of Komatsu Mining. “So, we set out to provide a solution that seeks to cut through the noise; to provide a single source of real-time information that can assist, automate and help optimize the important decisions customers make every day.”

To find out more about how the Komatsu Mining Technology Solutions team is leveraging next-generation optimization algorithms and open-technology solutions, join them in person at MINExpo Sept. 13-15 at the Modular Mining booth, #7671, and the Komatsu booth, #7027. Further details will be available during the show both in-person and online.
