Komatsu America Corp. Will Showcase Its intelligent Machine Control at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014

Press release date: February 3, 2014

Tier 4 technology also featured

Rolling Meadows, IL  – At the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 in Las Vegas, NV, Komatsu America Corp. will showcase 24 models including Komatsu’s line of intelligent Machine Control (iMC) dozers and new Tier 4 Final compliant machines. There will be four iMC dozers, nine excavators, five wheel loaders, two trucks, two larger dozers, one tracked log loader and one forklift on display at Booth 10016 in the North Hall.

Komatsu will feature its family of four intelligent Machine Control dozers that seamlessly transition from rough dozing to finish grading, allowing operators of all levels of experience to operate the machines. The robust integrated sensor package on the iMC dozers eliminates the daily hassles of installing/removing GNSS antenna(s) and cable(s) from the blade, as well as the associated wear. Improvement in combination rough dozing efficiency is up to 13% higher in iMC machines, compared to add-on machine control systems for tested models. This Komatsu-only intelligent Machine Control technology is scalable to select other products manufactured by Komatsu.

Booth visitors can also learn more about Komatsu’s EPA certified Tier 4 Final diesel engines that are built on Komatsu’s progressive engineering improvements to reduce emissions. The Tier 4 Final technology will be integrated into Komatsu America’s construction and mining engines ranging in size from 3.3 to 46 liters.

At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 Komatsu will host a press conference open to all attending media. The press conference will kick off at 8 AM, PST, on March 4, 2014 in Room N249-251 (right next to the Press Room) at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
