KUBOTA thrilled with bauma 2016
Industrial engine manufacturer KUBOTA was extremely thrilled with the progress and results of bauma 2016. At its impressive stand at the trade fair, visitors saw the newest drives with their sometimes complex technology from the Japanese engine manufacturer.
Travelling to the event from far-away Osaka, Shinji Sasaki, Senior Managing Executive Officer, General Manager Engine Division and KUBOTA Corporation’s top man when it comes to engines, was enthusiastic as he spoke about the outcome: “We were able to secure several large-scale orders at bauma, which we had been working towards for some time. We also had many meetings with management-level representatives, where we were able to initiate promising business relationships. This will allow us to build further on our close relationships with European and international customers in the coming years.”
As an alternative to diesel engines of the future with their costly exhaust gas after-treatment, KUBOTA offers a comprehensive range of (diesel) equivalent engines with similar dimensions (the “same footprint”) for the different performance classes fuelled by gasoline, natural gas, LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) or CNG (compressed natural gas). It is an option that some manufacturers may welcome in future as a cost-effective alternative to powering their machines.
It was not just customers and industry players who demonstrated their interest in KUBOTA’s technology; the great number of technical experts from research and development who visited the stand makes it clear that KUBOTA’s longstanding reputation as a market leader is well earned.
Visitors at bauma learn the technical details about one of KUBOTA’s “engine twins” with similar dimensions (the “same footprint”) – on the left, the V3800-TIEF4B diesel engine with currently 86.4 kW, and on the right, the WG 3800 gas engine with 70 kW.
KUBOTA industrial engines with similar dimensions, operated with either diesel or alternative fuels.
