iMC technology can streamline onboarding and help with workforce optimization

March 14, 2023 — Productivity is key to job site success. And while each business is unique, the need for predictability is universal, which is why Komatsuwill feature three of its intelligent Machine Control 2.0 (iMC 2.0) dozers at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in booth W42044: D39PXi-24, D51PXi-24 and the D71PXi-24.

Today, when many companies are struggling to find experienced workers or train existing ones, on-machine technology like iMC 2.0 can streamline onboarding and help close the operator skills gap by allowing automation throughout the dozing process. Komatsu’s iMC 2.0 dozers help maximize efficiencies so operators — even newer operators — can deliver more precise production.

First introduced by Komatsu in 2013, iMC continues to evolve, offering more automated functions for increased precision and reduced waste. Intelligent machines help reduce emissions per amount of material moved because it’s “moved right” the first time. 

Incorporating a host of advanced, proprietary machine technology, the Komatsu D39PXi-24 (105 HP), D51PXi-24 (131 HP) and the D71PXi-24 (237 HP) equipped with Komatsu’s iMC 2.0 offer the following benefits:

Learns as it works

With proactive dozing control, even less experienced operators can automatically cut/strip from existing terrain. The dozer measures the terrain it tracks over and uses that data to plan the next pass. Productivity can improve by up to 60% compared to conventional grading methods.

Spreads fill material automatically

Lift layer control automatically lets operators spread fill from existing terrain with the press of a button. The dozer measures the terrain it tracks over and uses the data it gathers to plan the next pass for up to double production with consistent layers for compaction quality.

Levels material even during rough dozing 

Tilt steering control automatically tilts the blade to maintain straight travel during rough dozing, which can help reduce operator steering input by up to 80%.

With automatic dozing, rough cut to finish grade, iMC-equipped Komatsu dozers help make every pass count, for superior production compared to traditional aftermarket systems.

With the right products, latest technologies, actionable data and dealer support, Komatsu and its customers can create value together. To learn more, visit Komatsu at CONEXPO 2023 at booth W42044. Additional products and solutions will be highlighted at neighboring booths for Hensley Industries (W42028), and Montabert (W42229), both Komatsu subsidiaries.
