Trimble has introduced version 2.1 of its 3D asphalt-milling solution: PCS900 Paving Control System
Trimble has introduced version 2.1 of its 3D asphalt-milling solution. The company’s PCS900 Paving Control System for milling machines is designed to help milling contractors achieve smoother surfaces and reduced machine stoppage. The “hot swap” functionality in the Trimble SPS930 universal total station, says the company, maintains continuity and accuracy of milling operations without stopping the machine. System portability, says Trimble, means that contractors can use the system on multiple machines and job sites for higher return on investment. Collectively, says Trimble, the elimination of string lines, reduced machine stoppage, and reduced rework can mean significantly improved productivity for the contractor using the PCS900 system.
Topcon Positioning Group has announced advances to its P-32 asphalt paving system with new components including the ST-3 sonic tracker, anti-vibration slope sensor, and a firmware update to the full-color, graphic display GC-35 control box.
The Leica iCON grade iGD4SP dozer solution calculates the lift, angle, and tilt of a dozer’s six-way blade, allowing the operator to angle the blade, while the system’s advanced hydraulic interface automatically controls lift and tilt.
