Intermat Preview No 2
Komatsu Out To Impress At Intermat 2015 - continued
Jason Anetsberger, product manager-Intelligent Machine Controls, Komatsu America Corp said:
The D155AXi-8 is ideal for highway construction and large residential or commercial site-prep projects.
If you’re looking for something that accurately and efficiently moves massive amounts of material, look no further.
Innovative Integrated Intelligent
The D155AXi-8 machine control system features enhanced ‘intelligence’ that allows automated operation from heavy dozing to fine grading.
It has the ability to sense and control blade load, optimize the start of the cut and minimize track slip, achieving up to 8% greater efficiency in moving material in a start-to-finish grading test, compared to typical aftermarket machine control systems.
The lack of blade mounted sensors means there’s no need for operators to climb on the blade to install/remove GNSS antennas, no coiled cables to snag and no electrical connections to worry about.
Powered by a 264 kW (354 HP) Komatsu SAA6D140E-7, Tier 4 Final emissions certified engine, the new dozer emits 80% less nitrogen oxides (NOx) than its Tier 4 interim predecessor.
This variable geometry turbocharged and after cooled, 15.24 litre diesel engine features Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems and achieves fluid-neutral fuel economy.
An automatic gearshift transmission and lock up torque converter team up to select the optimal gear range depending on jobsite conditions and load, and are designed to provide maximum operation efficiency.
The patented SIGMADOZER blade, designed to dig and roll up more soil at the blade’s center, holds more material, reduces digging resistance and dozes up to 15% more soil while using less power, compared to a typical semi-u blade. Blade capacity ranges from 9.4 - 12.70 m³ (12.3 - 15.6 yd³)
The D155AXi-8 ROPS pressurized cab has large, tall windows and superb sealing for outstanding visibility and less noise and dust inside the cab.
The D155AXi-8 cab damper mounts isolate the cab from the machine frame, softening shocks and vibrations and providing unmatched operator comfort.
The D155AXi-8 is covered by the Komatsu CARE program for the first three years or 2000 hours, whichever comes first.
And There Iss More
Also starring at Intermat 2015, and still unmatched on the worldwide construction market today, is the Komatsu HB215LC-2 third-generation Hybrid excavator - a product of patented Komatsu technology.
Komatsu components harness free kinetic energy, converts it to electricity for a powerful and quiet performance, a fuel consumption reduced by up to 40%, and a considerably lower carbon footprint.
A total of 29 Komatsu machines will be showcased, among which several other models presented in
Europe for the very first time such as the PC360LC-11 hydraulic excavator, the PW148-10 Wheeled Excavator and a High Reach Demolition PC490LC-10 excavator.
