Kobelco excavators will be equipped with Engcon's tiltrotators and automatic tilt function

Kobelco Construction Machinery, one of the world's largest excavator manufacturers, has, together with world-leading tiltrotator manufacturer Engcon and Leica Geosystems, developed a unique automatic height and tilt function for their excavators. Thanks to the cooperation, Kobelco announces that they will begin selling of its excavator SK200/SK210-10 in the spring, with Engcon's tiltrotator and Leica digging system, a combination which together make the digging more efficient and profitable.

The Japanese excavator manufacturer Kobelco has, together with Engcon and Leica Geosystems, developed a unique feature that provides automatic tilt function for Engcon's tiltrotator in combination with automatic dipper, boom and bucket function. This means that the excavator and ICT system automatically provide the right height and tilt to the bucket. Something that dramatically increases the efficiency of Kobelco's excavators.

"We are incredibly proud and happy to have participated in this project together with Kobelco and Leica Geosystems. I'm sure this is the beginning of something bigger in the industry," says Krister Blomgren, CEO of Engcon Holding, who is in Japan for the announcement.

The Kobelco SK200/SK210-10 will be the first model to be manufactured with this new ICT system and will be shipping in Japan early 2019, and delivery start for other markets is still to be decided.
