Max­iX­plorer ... the in­tu­itive sys­tem by Ko­matsu For­est

Australian Forests and Timber - - Control Systems -

Max­iX­plorer is a con­trol sys­tem for Ko­matsu’s har­vesters and for­warders alike, and one of the most mod­ern you can find on the mar­ket. It is a com­plete sys­tem for ma­chine and head con­trol, buck­ing, crane set­tings and ad­min­is­tra­tion, with op­ti­mal pro­duc­tiv­ity, flex­i­bil­ity and user friend­li­ness. The re­sults are un­beat­able over­views and fol­low-ups of your felling as­sign­ments, as well as com­plete con­trol of your en­tire lo­gis­tics chain.

One im­por­tant prof­itabil­ity fac­tor is the ex­cep­tional user friend­li­ness. The mod­ern graphic user in­ter­face and sim­ple menu struc­tures make Max­iX­plorer both easy to learn and easy to use. The re­sult is an as­ton­ish­ingly short learn­ing curve to reach max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­ity. The sys­tem is also easy to main­tain, adapt and fur­ther de­velop to suit in­di­vid­ual needs.

We are also talk­ing top class when it comes to per­for­mance. Pow­er­ful hard­ware com­bined with so­phis­ti­cated soft­ware pro­vides faster buck­ing and com­puter pro­cess­ing of large quan­ti­ties of data.

The data­base-ori­ented area man­age­ment and the re­port sys­tem pro­vide you with su­perb flex­i­bil­ity. You can, for example, cre­ate re­ports for any time pe­riod as needed. This offers you flex­i­ble and “all-in-one” fol­low-ups rather than sep­a­rate files, pro­vid­ing an un­beat­ably good over­view and a sense of or­der.

The work­ing mode in Max­iX­plorer also has an eas­ily nav­i­gated menu sys­tem and presents rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion at a glance cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from buck­ing to in­di­ca­tors. And the ma­chine con­trol alone offers many cru­cial ad­van­tages. Such as ev­ery­thing from com­puter com­mu­ni­ca­tion to the elec­tri­cal sys­tem and much more. To put it briefly, Max­iX­plorer pro­vides your Ko­matsu ma­chine with max­i­mum com­puter aided pro­duc­tiv­ity!

Ma­chine Con­trol

Max­iX­plorer’s ma­chine con­trol is a mar­ket leader thanks to its full in­te­gra­tion with other sys­tems. Ev­ery­thing from crane con­trol and cab lev­el­ling to the trans­mis­sion and lad­ders are en­com­passed. An un­lim­ited num­ber of users are eas­ily cre­ated, as are a num­ber of dif­fer­ent op­er­a­tor pro­files for work­ing in dif­fer­ent con­di­tions. The crane and cab lev­el­ling are eas­ily con­trolled from a sin­gle dia­logue box. All op­er­a­tor-spe­cific func­tions can be fine­tuned to achieve the ex­act sen­si­tiv­ity and speed – or smooth­ness and ac­cu­racy – that each op­er­a­tor prefers.

Area Man­age­ment

The op­er­a­tor cre­ates ar­eas with which in­for­ma­tion is as­so­ci­ated dur­ing har­vest­ing. An un­lim­ited num­ber of ar­eas can be cre­ated. Sub-ar­eas can be cre­ated un­der each area. Cre­at­ing, switch­ing and clos­ing ar­eas is easy as ev­ery­thing is man­aged in the same place, the Area Over­view. Max­iX­plorer can be con­fig­ured so that all re­port­ing is fully au­to­mated, with­out any in­ter­ac­tion on the part of the op­er­a­tor.


Max­iX­plorer can han­dle all buck­ing re­quire­ments, from the sim­plest to full val­ueop­ti­mised buck­ing. Cre­at­ing buck­ing in­struc­tions to op­ti­mise lengths is easy, us­ing a method where the sys­tem selects the as­sort­ment and length based on a list of pri­or­i­ties. Max­iX­plorer with value-op­ti­mised buck­ing offers some of the mar­ket’s most ef­fi­cient buck­ing, op­ti­mis­ing value ex­trac­tion based on sawmill pref­er­ences. Based on the doc­u­mented ex­cep­tional mea­sure­ment ac­cu­racy of Ko­matsu heads, vol­umes are cal­cu­lated with great pre­ci­sion.

■ With the stan­dard dis­play, the mouse poin­ter is con­trolled us­ing the mouse func­tion of the hand con­trollers. The KCC EME ver­sion of the Com­fort Con­trols for har­vesters is even fit­ted with a touch­pad.
