analyse possible cost reduction with the innovative Komatsu hybrid system as well as
intelligent machine control.
Hybrid excavators are equipped with an electric swing motor-generator. The created energy
can be used to swing or accelerate the engine. This results in a reduction of the time needed
for loading processes and an increase of productivity. In addition hybrid excavators are
environmental friendly as they emit up to 40 % less emissions.
An increase of productivity up to 30 % can be achieved as well by using the intelligent machine
control. This automation function supports customers to perform their work smarter, safer and
more productive. When the intelligent machine control is used there is no need for personnel
to check the surface profile any longer. This makes not only a cost reduction but also an
increase of safe operation possible.
