EXCAVATOR INNOVATORS SINCE 1930
Kobelco’s Japanese-built excavators deliver superior fuel efficiency, low noise operation and advanced hydraulics for powerful, high performance.
HAND-BUILT IN JAPAN
Quality is key to assembly
At the heart of the Itsukaichi factory are two main production lines. These lines cover all lower (undercarriage) and upper (frame) assembly processes and are manned by an army of highly skilled Kobelco engineers who use a combination of hand-building and high-tech machinery to assemble the various elements of the excavators.
With hundreds of engineers and technicians working across the many different processes on each line, attention to detail, quality control and maintaining a tight production schedule are key to manufacturing the highest quality Kobelco excavators possible.
INTERVIEW with Christine Conrad
Last summer we took some video of the SK500LC-10 model production and we also did a short interview with Christine Conrad.
When we were looking for suppliers to produce our scale models, one of the most important things is consistency in the quality of their model production. Conrad stood out as having over 60 years in a family business that has just kept on improving. Last year they produced our first model the SK500LC-10 and its proving to be a best seller still 6 months later due to the attention to detail and again the quality.
