Customized to your operation

While Komatsu shovels and backhoes meet the density benchmark of 1.8 t/m³, you have the option to customize your machine to the bucket size and wear package you need, and choose your heating/cooling systems, travel gear protections, special track pad variations and more.

Hydraulic system

Description
The power train consists of one main drive. Diesel or electric motor can be supplied. One gearbox drives three identical main pumps which draw hydraulic oil from an unpressurised hydraulic tank. Open circuit hydraulics provide maximum cooling and filtering efficiency.

Main hydraulic pumps  Bosch Rexroth 
Main hydraulic pumps  2 730 L/min
Relief valve setting  310 bar 
Swing flow rate  800 L/min 
High pressure screens  200 microns 

Flow description
Full flow return line filters 3 x 10 microns and leakage line filter 3 microns all with monitored 200 microns by pass filters. The three-circuit system features a load limiting governor with oil delivery summation to the working circuits and incorporates pressure cut-off control. Hydropilot prioritises hydraulic flow giving smooth hydraulic response, simple hydraulic system layout, and a reduced number of components

Komtrax plus

The Komtrax Plus monitoring system is designed for Komatsu mining equipment to provide real time and stored information about the operating status of the machine. Fault messages are immediately available to the operator via a digital display and in the event of critical malfunctions the engine is also shut down. The digital storage provides failure summary and analysis, which can be down loaded by laptop computer. This data will assist in predicting or reduction downtime. Optionally available is Orbcomm satellite transmission (check for availability in your territory).

Technology that works as hard as you do

The Argus Payload Monitoring System weighs each bucket in real-time, which helps eliminate the need to stop and calculate payload before loading the truck. Immediate feedback promotes loading accuracy, while peer benchmarking works to reinforce best practices to improve operator performance. 
The ProVision Machine Guidance System promotes increased operator efficiency and productivity through the use of high-precision global navigation satellite system (HP-GNSS) positioning. Capable of providing up to 1 cm accuracy, the ProVision System helps guide excavator operators to dig the right material, keep the designed bench grade, respect dig limits, and work within the machine’s prime operating specifications. The system also provides guidance to truck operators to help promote precise spotting at a loading unit. 
The MineCare Maintenance Management System combines the benefits of real-time remote equipment health monitoring with cloud computing technology and advanced analytics capabilities. The MineCare System promotes the advanced detection of issues before they occur, thus helping to reduce unplanned maintenance events, promoting increased uptime and utilization and reduced maintenance costs and equipment degradation. 
The DISPATCH Fleet Management System (FMS) helps mines achieve enhanced load and haul cycle efficiency and productivity through its proprietary optimization algorithm. The DISPATCH FMS provides mines with increased potential for end-to-end monitoring of production and auxiliary equipment, improved compliance with planning objectives, shorter hang/queue times and more.
