Komatsu Behind the World’s First iMC Hydraulic Excavator

Starting in Europe and Japan, Komatsu Ltd. has begun with the launching of the PC200i-10 and PC210LCi-10 intelligent Machine Control (iMC) hydraulic excavators.

With a plan to introduce them to the United States in November, Komatsu is working to aggressively promote them in advanced countries which lead ICT-based construction.

For these iMC hydraulic excavators, Komatsu has achieved the world first 3 iMC technology which controls their boom, arm and bucket without damaging the target surface by checking the position data of their bucket teeth received by their GNSS (GPS and GLONASS) antenna and the GNSS base station on their jobsite against the design data.

Following the iMC dozers launched last year, these iMC hydraulic excavators represent the second iMC machines for Komatsu which makes the construction easier, quicker and safer.

Both iMC models can eliminate a considerable amount of work, such as staking and surveying, which are required for conventional construction, they can help customers not only improve their production efficiency but also enhance safety at jobsites by reducing the number of surveyors who work near the machines.

Komatsu is also promoting the “visualization” of construction work by integrating KOMTRAX (Komatsu Machine Tracking System) and the construction management system.

In the near future, the company is going to achieve effective unified management of information concerning both the operating conditions of the machines and the progress of construction, such as the volume of hauled soil, through web services.
