Exhibition Outline

From dams, roads, and high-rise buildings to reconstruction in areas affected by natural disasters, heavy machinery technology is indispensable when it comes to creating an environment where we can live safely and comfortably.

This exhibition approaches the processes of each site - soil preparation, construction, and demolition - through displays and valuable images, including those of the latest hydraulic excavators, a dual-armed concept machine with a four-legged crawler system, and the large parts of a huge crane.

There is also technological innovation taking place regarding the massive and heavy areas of construction sites, with small robots playing active roles on dangerous construction sites, and lightweight construction equipment aimed to work on sites in outer space. We consider the future from looking at this new technology with our visitors.
