With mega launches of new models by Komatsu India during Excon and it is expecting the expansion of product range by end of this fiscal year in India, Komatsu is doing R&D continuously on the technologies and product development. Yasunori Fujii, Managing Director, Komatsu India, informed us in detail, on what has been offered so far to the Indian construction equipment industry from their Oragadam manufacturing facility.On display: Komatsu India launched four new environment-friendly B20 biodiesel-ready models introducing – Komatsu PC205-10M0 Hydraulic Excavator, Komatsu PC500LC-10R hydraulic excavator, Komatsu PC210LC-10M0 Super Long Front and Komatsu GD535-6 motor grader. These hydraulic excavator models are manufactured in India. Usually, we only release about two new models in any exhibitions. However, this time, we had launched more number of new products in Excon.Demand drivers: The government policies for infrastructure investment and increased production in mining sector have made strong demand for equipment.Semiconductor shortage: Some of our parts require semiconductor chips, so the shortage of semiconductor chip is a negative point for Komatsu India as same with the rising metal prices. But, we are confident that we can overcome these difficult times in coming months once the supply chain issues streamlined globally. All OEM’s and automobile sectors are facing the same situation and foresee that the things will change very soon.Areas of opportunity: General construction is driving the market for the newly-launched products due to the investments done by the Indian government. We can meet India’s demand growth by offering quality and technological products to boost the infrastructure and also support mining industry largely.Increasing telematics: Komatsu is one of the most advanced manufacturers of products with telematics in the world. Using drones, we can monitor the scale of the design and the procedures for any construction along with automation. Most of our equipment are installed with data transmitter and GPS along which can track the performance of the machine. Based on the data gathered, we can inform the customer about the performance and which area needs to be improved for better operation and production.
