Komatsu to reveal new driller, bolters, LHDs at livestream event

Komatsu is readying the unveiling of an all-new underground drilling and bolting product platform with a “bold, industry-disrupting design” that will debut at its first ever virtual livestream event.

On October 26, event attendees will be among the first to experience this new platform, designed after years of working in collaboration with customers to understand the challenges faced by mining operations, the company said.

The first four of 14 planned new drilling and bolting models using the platform will be featured during the event. Two LHDs, one brand new and one enhanced and improved over the current model, will also be unveiled.

In addition to showcasing the new machines, the “Explore beyond the surface: Innovations for hard rock mining” event will offer participants the chance to hear from and ask questions of product experts, Komatsu said. “We’ll share the design considerations that went into each of our new products and the benefits and opportunities that can be expected with their use,” the company added.

Josh Wagner, Vice President Hard Rock at Komatsu, said: “We’re thrilled to finally be able to reveal these new products, which were developed based on the insights we’ve gained by working side-by-side with our customers in the mining industry.

“Our new drilling and bolting platform and LHD machines are the latest examples of our commitment to delivering sustainable, innovative solutions that support our customers’ mining operations.”
