Komatsu adds new iMC dozers to show robot construction works

Four intelligent machine control dozers on show at ConExpo

Komatsu America has announced that it will show four intelligent Machine Control (iMC) dozers at the ConExpo show in Las Vegas, along with 20 other machine models, comprising nine excavators, five wheel loaders, two trucks, two larger dozers, one tracked log loader and one forklift.

The first iMC dozer was launched last year at Bauma, boasting factory-integrated machine control technology, a result of Komatsu engineering and an alliance with Topcon. The first iMC dozer was sold early last year, with a Belgian contractor purchasing a D61PXi-23.

According to Komatsu, the iMC dozers seamlessly transition from rough dozing to finish grading, allowing operators of all levels of experience to operate the machines.

“The robust integrated sensor package on the iMC dozers eliminates the daily hassles of installing/removing GNSS antenna(s) and cable(s) from the blade, as well as the associated wear. Improvement in combination rough dozing efficiency is up to 13% higher in iMC machines, compared to add-on machine control systems for tested models.”

The Komatsu-only intelligent Machine Control technology is scalable to select other products manufactured by Komatsu.

Among the machines on display, a number will also feature Tier 4 Final compliant engines.
