Smart Construction Retrofit Press Release 1 - Article single.jpg

Easily installed 3D guidance kit offers access to design and payload data


July 27, 2022 – Looking for an easy way to improve your grading performance? Now, with Komatsu’s easy and affordable Smart Construction Retrofit kits, your conventional Komatsu excavators can be equipped with 3D guidance and payload monitoring, giving operators and managers alike more ways to help work efficiently and accurately.


Designed to improve grading performance and provide more time- and cost-management tools, Smart Construction Retrofit can bring 3D to most Komatsu excavators in your fleet. Easily installed by a local Komatsu distributor, Smart Construction Retrofit is a low-cost guidance kit that gives operators in the field and managers in the office access to 3D design and payload data to help drive accuracy, control load volumes and improve operations.


“No matter where you are in your Smart Construction journey, we have the expertise to help you integrate and optimize your fleet, based on your specific needs,” said Ron Schwieters, senior product manager, customer solutions for Komatsu. “Smart Construction Retrofit kits are an entry-level solution that can help bridge the technology gap and drive production improvements to your fleet.”


Benefits of Smart Construction Retrofit



  • Gives operators the latest design data

  • Measures payload volume and load counts

  • Lets you monitor production from the office


Once a conventional excavator is fitted with Smart Construction Retrofit, operators no longer have to set up a laser or bench every time the machine moves. The global navigation satellite system (GNSS) can determine where a machine is on the job site and what the target grade is. The need for additional labor is reduced because the technology collects and delivers information directly to the operator, so fewer people have to be working on the ground, or in an open trench.


Increase productivity


Machine production can be monitored from the office by integrating Smart Construction applications, and as-built and payload data can be collected for progress tracking. With Smart Construction Retrofit you can reduce handling and reworking material which helps drive both productivity and profitability. The payload meter helps prevent overloaded trucks by promoting proper loading weights for on- and off-road vehicles, to reduce the potential for equipment damage and other risks.


Construction projects depend on robust data that is easily shared, replicated and updated. Learn more about how you can affordably leverage 3D data from nearly every Komatsu excavator, as well as more information about Komatsu’s suite of Smart Construction solutions, that help advance automation with integrated technologies that help maximize production.
