WorldWide Drilling Resource

9 SEPTEMBER 2022 WorldWide Drilling Resource® Smart Retrofit Kits for Komatsu Excavators Designed to improve grading performance and provide more time- and cost-management tools, Smart Construction Retrofit can bring 3D to most Komatsu excavators. Easily installed by a local Komatsu distributor, Smart Construction Retrofit is a low-cost guidance kit that gives operators in the field and managers in the office access to 3D design and payload data to help drive accuracy, control load volumes, and improve operations. Once a conventional excavator is fitted with Smart Construction Retrofit, operators no longer have to set up a laser or bench every time the machine moves. The global navigation satellite system (GNSS) can determine where a machine is on the jobsite and what the target grade is. Additional labor need is reduced because the technology collects and delivers information directly to the operator, so fewer people have to be working on the ground, or in an open trench. Construction projects depend on robust data that is easily shared, replicated, and updated. Machine production can be monitored from the office by integrating Smart Construction applications, and as-built and payload data can be collected for progress tracking. With Smart Construction Retrofit you can reduce handling and reworking material which helps drive both productivity and profitability. For a link to this website, visit this page at:
