Telematics in Kobelco machines is helping customers in efficient fleet management including fuel efficiency, higher productivity and reliability.
E. Moses, Vice President – Division & National Head

Excon will be a great platform to show-case the products and technological advancements made in Kobleco machines.
We will showcase our range of Construction & Mining equipment along with a variety of special attachments which offer efficient solutions in a range of applications. Our focus this time will cover the following: Mini Excavators SK30SR and SK35SR; 14T range – the new SK140; 22T range – the SK220; 35T range – the SK350; 52T range – the SK520 – Mining spec; and range of attachments.

Kobelco has been offering low-emission engines with a much lower carbon footprint.
Our excavators are designed and developed based on field observations and customer feedback. They offer multiple benefits for the user like fuel efficiency, higher productivity and reliability, efficient operating environment, etc. The machines have a strong structure, an efficient filtration systems, etc. which make them highly durable.

The machines have lower maintenance costs and, even more importantly, lower operating costs which give long-term benefits to the owner. For maximum uptime, customers are encouraged to seek the support of our dealers who will ensure timely maintenance and prompt supply of parts and lubricants.

It is also worth mentioning that unlike some OEMs who have been selling machines based on older technology (considering that our country did not have the desired regulations concerning emission standards and safety), Kobelco has been offering low-emission engines, with a much lower carbon footprint.

Telematics is enabling a great deal of market research in the form of data analytics and eventually helping customers in efficient fleet management.
Our advanced technology machines have in-built features for tracking and monitoring key performance/operating parameters through a telematics system. The machine data gets uploaded to the company server and is then analysed for feedback to the customer as well as for any diagnostic, development, or corrective steps. The data is an excellent resource for the field support team who can suitably interpret it and take requisite steps like resolving error codes, identify operator training needs, ensure timely maintenance, etc.

A choice between new and used equipment needs proper analysis as the Total Owning & Operating cost help in decision making.
The past two years have thrown up several challenges for customers; they have had to adopt innovative strategies to meet their equipment requirements for executing their contracts. As mentioned above, these are the options presently available, though the customers’ credibility and liquidity are key considerations. Renting and leasing are on offer but their choice has to be made on a proper ‘cost-benefit analysis’. Similarly, a choice between new and used equipment needs proper analysis as the Total Owning & Operating cost help in decision making.

There is liberal use of robotics and IoT devices in Kobleco’s manufacturing processes.
In Kobelco, the manufacturing process is practically similar across all global locations and follows the current international trends. There is a liberal use of robotics and IoT devices. Further upgradation on the lines of Industry 4.0 is usually dependent on the operating market environment. In developing markets, the technological upgradation is taken up in a phased manner as there are cost impacts as well.

The schemes announced in Budget 2022-23 is expected to give a boost to the Infra segment.
Roads and Railways are likely to be the key drivers. Mining activity is also likely to see an upturn though the overall performance of the mining sector is influenced by macro-economic factors.
