Komatsu and Topcon alliance announced
Under the agreement, Topcon and Komatsu will share information to ensure that the Topcon control platform and specified Komatsu machinery will maintain complete compatibility at a core technology level, designed to make both installation and operation of Topcon's productive control systems seamless. All "on-machine" components of the Topcon systems can be ordered directly from Komatsu, arriving at the Komatsu distributor pre-installed and ready to use. The Komatsu distributor will purchase "off-machine" components (GPS base stations, robotic control instruments, laser transmitters, etc.) from the local Topcon distributor. Field support can be provided by Komatsu or any authorized Topcon distributor.
