Recognizing that productivity is the key to customers' success on the jobsite, Komatsu, the pioneer in machine control technology, debuted its intelligent Machine Control 2.0 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020.

Komatsu's intelligent Machine Control (iMC) is a suite of features that utilizes advanced machine technology—some of it patent-pending—to increase dozer productivity.

CONEXPO visitors saw Komatsu's iMC 2.0 capabilities on the industry's newest and largest intelligent hydrostatic transmission (HST) dozer, the D71PXi-24, making its global premier at this week's show. The D71 was displayed in the Smart Construction section of Booth N-10825.

The suite of productivity features that comprise Komatsu's intelligent Machine Control 2.0 include:

Patent-pending proactive dozing control

  • Automatically cuts/strips from existing terrain like an experienced operator
  • Can operate automatically 100% of the time
  • Measures the terrain it tracks and uses that track-level data to plan the next pass
  • Over 60% more productive than the previous generation*

Patent-pending lift layer control

  • Automatically spreads fill from existing terrain with one press of a button
  • Measures the terrain it tracks over and uses that data to plan the next pass
  • Doubles production and achieves consistent layers for quality compaction

Tilt steering control

  • Automatically tilts blade to maintain straight travel during rough dozing
  • Reduces the need for operator steering input by up to 80%

Quick surface creation

  • Creates a temporary design surface with one press of the button
  • Combined with other iMC 2.0 functions, operators can begin stripping or spreading using automatic modes while waiting for finish grade mode

Within the year, intelligent Machine Control 2.0 will be commercially available on additional Komatsu dozers.

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
