The cabin is where the operator of the construction machinery sits (shown in the red box in the diagram).
Cabins differ based on the requirements, such as the class of machinery and use, for instance, civil engineering, demolition or forestry.
Construction machinery cabins are designed with the comfort of the operator in mind.
Visibility looking forward is the chief requirement when excavating and visibility looking up is critical for demolishing buildings and forestry.
For these reasons, we make the window glass as large as possible and the cabin pillars as thin as possible.
In recent years, demand for stronger cabins has increased to safeguard operators from unexpected life-threatening accidents while on the job.
Press Kogyo applies variant shaped steel pipes it is an original construction method in the cabin pillars.
Using these pipes makes it possible to create cabins with exceptional designs and strength.
The front window glass and skylight can be kept open, improving convenience when working by increasing ventilation and providing a sense of space.
The front window can be opened and closed easily using an assist and can be locked with one touch.
The basic skeleton of cabins for construction machinery consists mainly of large panels, small panels, and variant shaped steel pipes.
The large panels and variant shaped steel pipes are processed in-house.
Each part is welded together. The panels and variant shaped steel pipes are assembled using either arc welding or spot welding, depending on the area.
Robots are used for some of the welding to save on labor.
③Coating and trim assembly
The cabin is coated after welding and assembling, then the glass, wiper, and other trim parts are fitted.
The trim parts be mounted vary depending on the type of cabin, with approximately 700 components trimmed per unit.
Robots handle a portion of this work.
