PC360LCi-11 Large Excavator
Nimble, yet highly productive, the PC360LCi-11 is easily the most anticipated intelligent machine control machine to launch from Komatsu in recent memory. From trenching on a utility worksite to mass excavating on a highway project, the PC360LCi-11 is flexible and versatile enough to be at home on almost any jobsite.
Intelligent Machine Control features a unique sensor package, including stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders, an IMU sensor, and GNSS antennas. The machine utilizes 3D design data loaded into the machine’s monitor to accurately display machine position relative to target grade. When the bucket reaches the target surface, automation kicks in to limit over excavation.
Intelligent Machine Control excavator with semi-automatic control allows the operator to improve work efficiency as compared to conventional aftermarket machine guidance (indicate only) or manual operation. Rough digging to finish grading, intelligent Machine Control minimizes over-excavation to make every pass count.
With the auto grade assist function, the operator moves the arm, the boom adjusts the bucket height automatically, tracing the target surface and minimizing digging too deep. This allows the operator to perform rough digging without worrying about the design surface, and to perform fine digging by operating the arm lever only. The working range is expanded by holding the lever to move the boom downward.
During boom or bucket operation, the work equipment automatically stops when the bucket edge reaches the design surface, thus minimizing damage to the design surface.
