Excavators Offer Intelligent Machine Control

Posted July 23, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

The first machines in their size and class to utilize Intelligent Machine Control (IMC), Komatsu's new 36-ton tracked excavators eliminate the trial-and-error process of reaching desired grade level. Equipped with an exclusive sensor package that includes stroke-sensing hydraulic cylinders, the IMC feeds real-time machine and bucket position data relative to the desired target grade. Only when the bucket reaches its specified grade level does it dig. The IMC also features auto stop control which shuts the excavating process down as soon as the specified surface level is reached. Catch a video demo here.
