Komatsu excited to be back as Gold Sponsors of Diesel, Dirt and Turf Expo 2023

Komatsu will be the Gold Sponsor of the Diesel Dirt and Turf Expo again this year, with a big team presence planned to showcase our innovative range of Smart Construction technology.

Located on Stand B1, Komatsu will have one of the largest displays of machinery and technology at the expo, and Chris Moroz, Komatsu’s Sales Manager - Central Region, says a big focus of our marquee will be our Smart Construction offering, our suite of offerings that improve productivity and safety in the construction, quarrying and mining industries, through the application of unique technology and integrated products.

"The tools in our Smart Construction suite are designed to improve communication and connectivity between our customers, their machines and their materials. They cover unique solutions such as intelligent machine control, drone data collection to create 3D terrain maps, site dashboard visualisation and remote operator support,” he says.

We will have three of our Intelligent Machine Control (iMC) machines on display: the PC360LCi-11 36-tonne excavator, the 23-tonne PC210LCi-11 and the D71PXi-24 and D65EXi-18 mid-sized dozers.

“iMC enables operators to program 3D design data directly into a machine, and delivers major productivity benefits for customers, from controlling cut depth while avoiding track shoe-slip on the dozers, to increased accuracy and automatic grading capabilities on the excavators,” Chris says.

“We’re excited to have these machines on-site at DD&T and showcase Komatsu’s latest innovations for our construction customers.”

We will also have our Retrofit Kit (RFK) on display, on the PC138US-11 mid-sized excavator. Chris says RFK’s allow conventional machinery to perform digital construction, using ICT features such as 3D machine guidance, payload management and 3D construction data collection.

“RFK can be fitted to a variety of machine sizes, makes and models, including older machines, making it an appealing addition for many of our customers.”

Komatsu will have a large presence from our sales and support teams from right across the business at DD&T. “Visitors will be able to stop by and have a chat with representatives from our Smart Construction, recruitment, aftermarket, Komtrax and Portal teams for any issues or questions on the machines and technology on display.

“They can also catch our PC138US-11 RFK and PC210LCi-11 in action across the three days at the demo site, and we’ll be running some exciting competitions where attendees can have the chance to win prizes, and take advantage of our show special offers,” says Chris.

“Diesel, Dirt and Turf is a great opportunity for us to showcase our latest technology and innovations, and connect with customers and industry, the whole team looks forward to it each year. Come by Stand B1, and find out more about Komatsu, its products and services, and its people. We look forward to seeing you there.”
