HITACHI’S FIRST ICT HYDRAULIC EXCAVATOR IS REVEALED

Thursday, November 22, 2018

Hitachi Construction Machinery have introduced their brand new ICT hydraulic excavator with machine control in Europe, which has been designed to offer increased efficiency, enhanced safety and user-friendly operation.

The ZX210X-6 will enable projects to be completed nearly 50% faster than with a standard machine, all thanks to the semi-automatic operation of the boom and arm.  A key feature of the machine control system is the bucket angle retention facility, allowing for slope finishing to be carried out with fewer movements and the edge of the bucket is controlled to prevent over digging.

Responsive sensors on the body, boom, arm and bucket work in perfect harmony with the unique hydraulic control unit, helping to provide an accurate measurement of the excavator’s incline and front working angle.

Equipped with a factory-fitted 10in touchscreen monitor which has a split-screen option to show two or three views at once; the operator can rotate the view of the machine 360° and zoom in and out of view to monitor the progress.

The ZX210X-6 will play a significant role in Hitachi’s ICT solutions and the increasing importance of BIM (building information modelling) in the construction industry.

Wilbert Blom, product manager for Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe, said: ‘The ZX210X-6 excavator plays a pivotal role in Hitachi’s ICT construction solutions, which connect people, information, processes and technology to create safe and productive working environments.  More accurate than its competitors, it is the most technologically advanced Hitachi excavator to date.’
