Case introduces OEM-Fit 2D and 3D machine control solutions designed by Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon—now available for Case D Series excavators. This new option ensures that the optimal combination of machine and solution is installed and tested by Case certified precision field specialists. It also simplifies the acquisition process and allows for the technology to be grouped in with the purchase of the machine—combining the financing or lease approval, rate and payment in a single package, according to the company.
“It takes the guesswork out of what solution works best with each machine, and ensures that it is installed and tested by certified professionals before it’s delivered to the contractor,” says Nathaniel Waldschmidt, product manager, Case. “The excavator and the machine control system are optimally matched and calibrated—helping the owners and operators of each machine get up and running immediately upon delivery of the machine.”
OEM-Fit machine control solutions also increase the residual/resale value of each excavator, confirming to buyers on the secondary market that the system is designed
Leica Geosystems’ machine control solutions offer several features that increase the productivity, accuracy and safety of excavators while providing operators an easy-to-use hardware and software platform.
