The IT revolution had a tremendous influence on the technology of construction equipment as well. The satellite operation management system was developed during the 90's as a method to supervise and manage equipment from a remote distance, and became an industry standard during this era.
Equipped with the ground breaking 44 inch jaw crusher, it achieved the largest throughput in its class. It had a very high crushing capacity and massive productivity by maintaining it's minimum set of 55 mm for the space at the crusher exit.
The light and compact body design has superb transportation and starting capability which allows it to play a core role with the crusher system and contribute to increase efficiency and shorten lead times at large scale engineering and demolition sites.
There were other construction machines built by Komatsu over the years. We can see how the various designs mirrored different eras if we look at them set against the flow of history.
