Komatsu Intelligent Machine Control

Komatsu intelligent machines offer a fully integrated 3D GNSS system supported by Komatsu, making every pass count without climbing, cables, or daily connections required between the machine and blade.

Adding a grade control system to the proven performance of a Komatsu machine significantly increases productivity during all stages of earthmoving operations.


Benefits of intelligent Machine Control include:

  • Use of machine control in both rough cut and finish grade
  • Complete grading operations faster
  • More efficient machine use
  • Greatly decrease the number of grade stakes
  • Lower machine operating costs
  • Better material yields
  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • Improved operator performance

iMC Dozer Features

Seamless Operation: Dozer automatically shifts from “rough dozing” to “finish grading” when it comes close to the target surface.

Intelligent Performance: Operator selectable dozing mode and load settings to optimized performance.

Minimizes Track Slip: Reduce track wear and damage to the grade surface caused by track slip.

Operator Selectable Load Settings: Machine control load settings can be adjusted between presets to tailor the response to material conditions. From dry loose sandy soils to wet heavy clay materials, you can target system performance accordingly.

As-Built Surface Track Mapping: Cab top GNSS antenna provides for accurate as-built surface data collection by measuring actual elevations as the machine continuously tracks in operation. Measure progress in real time with operator selectable settings.

iMC Excavator Features

Innovative: World’s first intelligent Machine Control Excavator which features automation, not just indication/guidance.

Auto Grade Assist: With the auto grade assist function, when the operator moves the arm, the boom adjusts the bucket height automatically, tracing the target surface and minimizing digging too deep.

Auto Stop Control: During boom or bucket operation, the work equipment automatically stops when the bucket edge reaches the design surface, thus preventing damage to the design surface.

Minimum Distance Control: The bucket is controlled automatically by selecting the point on the bucket closest to the target surface. Should the machine not be facing a sloped surface at a right angle, it will still protect the target surface
