Kobelco K-Dive Remote Excavator Operation

Kobelco K-DIVE offers remote control excavator operation. The K-Dive concept is currently under development for use exclusively with Kobelco excavators.

With K-Dive, Kobelco will provide a means of remote machine control that enables an operator to sit in a replicated control platform, located in an office environment, and be able to see and control an excavator located anywhere in the world.

There are many advantages for such a system, including operation of equipment working in harsh or dangerous environments, and to manage operator shortages with the convenience of remote operation without having to travel to job sites.

K-eye pro

Kobelco K-Eye Pro Technology 

A major issue facing the construction industry is that of eliminating work-related injury or death. Kobelco has introduced "K-EYE PRO", a collision reduction system equipped with an automatic deceleration/stop function that is the first in the construction machinery industry.

A decreasing workforce, training today's youth for the next generation of workers and on-site safety measures are some of the challenges faced by the construction industry globally. Kobelco's “IoT Solution” was created to address these and other problems that are faced in the workplace.

Kobelco will continue to lead the way with innovative technology solutions that enhance the performance of our excavators and reward our customers with improved productivity and peace of mind.

K-Scan

“K-Scan” Kobelco’s Unique Preventive Maintenance System

“K-Scan” offers customers daily machine condition checking through remote machine monitoring.

"K Scan" conducts daily sensory detection of numerical values that include water and oil temperatures, fuel injection volume and pump output. With that data as its base, the system observes the status of an excavator. When the values reach a certain level, the system suggests appropriate maintenance measures.

In addition, a service technician inspects a stationary machine at high idle during maintenance. Together with the status observation, the service technician prevents any possible problems by investigating detailed data carefully to ensure an excavator's stable operation.

Geoscan

Kobelco GEOSCAN Excavator Remote Monitoring System   
 
                                         
Kobelco GEOSCAN uses satellite communication and internet to relay data, and therefore can be deployed in areas where other forms of communication are difficult. When a hydraulic excavator is fitted with this system, data on the machine’s operation, such as operating hours, location, fuel consumption, and maintenance status can be obtained remotely.

Location Data:
Accurate location data can be obtained even from sites where communication is difficult.

Operating Hours:
A comparison of operating times of machines at multiple locations shows which locations are busier and more profitable. Operating hours on site can be accurately recorded for running time calculations needed for rental machines.

Fuel Consumption Data:
Data on fuel consumption and idling times can be used to indicate improvements in fuel consumption.

Machine Maintenance Data and Warning Alerts:
Provides maintenance status of separate machines operating at multiple sites. The system warns an alert if an anomaly is sensed, preventing damage that could result in machine downtime.

Alarm information or maintenance notice can be received through email using a computer or smartphone. Daily and monthly reports of operational data can be downloaded.

Security System:
An alarm can be set on the system if the machine is operated outside the designated time or has been moved out of its designated area to another location.

iNDr

Kobelco’s Exclusive Integrated Noise & Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr)

Kobelco’s proprietary iNDr is the world’s most advanced cooling system that ensures quiet operation, protection from dust, and easy maintenance.

Visual Checking and Easy Cleaning:
The iNDr filter removes dust from the intake air so cooling components stay dirt-free and do not require regular cleaning. The iNDr filter itself can be easily removed and cleaned without the use of tools.    

iNDR Filter:
The stainless-steel filter is extremely effective against dust, with 30-mesh wave-type screen that removes tiny dust particles from the intake air.
         
iNDr Filter Blocks out Dust:
Outside air goes directly from the intake duct through the iNDr filter for dust removal.

Ultimate Low Noise:  
Kobelco’s exclusive iNDr Cooling System delivers amazingly quiet operation.
