[Area displaying products with historic value]
These are the masterpieces that gave birth to compact construction equipment.
The walk-behind dozer and the mini excavator displayed at the showroom gave birth to the world's compact construction equipment. The “Y9D” walk-behind dozer on display was manufactured in 1972. This model enabled work in Japan's characteristically narrow spaces, and contributed to solutions for challenges such as labor shortages and exploding labor costs. The mini excavator on display is the bestselling “YB1200SS” model manufactured in 1979 having all the functions of modern compact excavators, with total series sales of over ten thousand machines.
[Concept construction equipment display and simulator area] Try Out What The Future Holds!
For creating new products and technology, Yanmar Construction Equipment is focusing on works including interior demolition of buildings that was previously done by hand, a part of the renovation demand set to expand around the world. The concept construction equipment on display depicts the future in 2035 in anticipation of mechanization and intelligent automation in new markets. The concept construction equipment simulator lets visitors virtually operate the concept construction equipment, and experience interior demolition of a standard office space hands-on. Using the “Leap Motion” technology that detects hand motion, visitors can experience realistic future work such as fuselage transport, room scanning, projection mapping, and issuing instructions to machinery hands-on.
Selecting from the two courses, “wall demolition” and “floor chipping”, visitors can get a hands-on experience of demolition work in a game-like environment.
A showroom full of hands-on experiences, that brings to life the history and future of the construction equipment business unit. Yanmar Construction Equipment will continue to develop construction equipment and strive to deepen our bond with customers!
