34 E&MJ • JUNE 2019 COMPANY PROFILE-PAID ADVERTISEMENT Komatsu is an indispensable partner to the construction, mining, industrial and forestry industries that maximizes value for customers through innovative solutions. With a full line of products supported by our advanced IIoT technologies, regional distribution channels and a global service network, we help cus- tomers safely and sustainably optimize their operations. Our Komatsu, P&H, Joy and Montabert equipment and services are used to extract fundamental minerals and develop modern infrastructure. Komatsu: Mining equipment and solutions Komatsu is pushing the mining industry >FORWARD. We focus on creating innovative technology and solutions that are energy efficient and safe. Our commitment and ded- ication to our customers drives our pursuit of excellence. 100 years of mining innovation This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the Joy brand, which has made countless con- tributions to underground mining. As we move towards the future, we are excited to continue developing solutions that will advance the industry. Personal proximity detection system At Komatsu, we always put the safety of operators, service personnel, manufacturers and other mine employees first. We create our products with the highest standards and we provide essential technologies and services to protect workers while making mining more efficient and cost effective. Our personal proximity detection systems are just one example of how we are revolution- izing safety on mine sites. We fit each worker with a tag that works with our system to mon- itor his or her movements through the mine, alerting them to potential hazards such and moving machinery, unstable environments and even respirable dust. This information is also sent to provide even more protection to operators and personnel. We understand that people are mining's most valuable resource and no amount of pro- duction or deadline is worth risking a worker's safety. We are proud of our commitment to driving the industry towards zero harm. Smart Solutions and The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Smart Solutions is designed to help mining sites track machine usage, predict when to schedule preventative maintenance and improve overall efficiency while reducing costs. With that in mind, we've embraced the Internet of Things (IIoT) to help maximize our potential. We are using the IIoT to grow our Smart Solutions offerings by allowing us to process more data at a higher rate so we can con- tinuously monitor equipment. This ability to access real-time data and analytics results in reduced downtime and improved overall performance and efficiency for customers. Personalized Solutions We engage with customers at their work site so that we can thoroughly understand their needs and develop new products, technolo- gies and services that make mining safer and more efficient. Our ideas are inspired by the needs at each site and have become part of our inte- grated approach to research, development and design; resulting in groundbreaking advance- ments for the mining industry, including fully automated haulage solutions, and advanced fleet monitoring and management systems. We believe our success is dependent on our customers' success. We see our custom- ers' needs firsthand and help them go beyond what is necessary, to what is possible. Global Corporate Responsibility We're passionate about the mining industry and the products we make, but we're also passionate about people. We invest financial and employee volunteer resources in nonprof- its and non-government organizations, part- nering with our communities and prioritizing programs that address immediate needs while building a foundation for the future.
