Intelligent Machine Control features iMC 2.0

Are you constantly looking for improving your productivity and your efficiency?

iMC 2.0 is the next generation of the intelligent Machine Control that will deliver step changes in your daily operation.
This Komatsu fully factory integrated technology enables operators to get the job done right first time, every time.

We will introduce to you the suite of excavator machine control features and explain what are the direct benefits to your bottom line.

How does Auto-Stop Control prevent from over-digging?

Auto-Stop Control

It stops the bucket edge on the design surface during boom, arm or bucket operation, and eliminates over-digging past the desired grade. Operators can safely rely on the system’s intervention when required: no more need to constantly check the monitor or to worry about re-work. Just relax and be productive.

How does the Auto Grade Assist make the perfect grade?

Auto Grade Assist

Even a new operator can now easily deliver that perfect grade! During a grading pass, the system automatically raises the boom and the bucket edge precisely traces the design surface. The operator just controls the desired grading speed with the left hand lever. This simplification of a previously quite complex manual operation boosts productivity and efficiency with unsurpassed accuracy.

What is Minimum Distance Control ?

Minimum Distance Control

Each bucket is easily calibrated to the excavator, so that the iMC system can always calculate the bucket’s nearest point or the “minimum distance” to the design model. Regardless of the bucket’s orientation, the system will always prevent it from damaging the surface. This gives operators confidence that, in the event of a mistake or when working on complex designs, the iMC system will always support them.

Engine management is enhanced and the optimal speed matching of the engine and hydraulic pumps guarantee efficiency and precision during single and combined movements.

How does Auto Tilt Control work? Why does it make tilt operation easier?

Auto Tilt Control

Tilting bucket operation becomes automatic. The iMC 2.0 system intuitively adjusts the bucket to the design surface, and keeps the bucket edge exactly on the grade throughout the grading pass, with no need for manual adjustment. Delivering slopes and complex designs are now effortless!

Can iMC 2.0 system maintain a constant bucket angle?

Bucket Angle Hold

Enables the operator to automatically set the bucket grading or digging angle. The iMC 2.0 system maintains a constant bucket angle, removing the need for the operator to adjust manually, boosting ease of operation in final grading or trimming work.
