Trimble and Doosan Infracore NA announced that Doosan will offer the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform for Excavators as an optional factory-installed machine control solution. Doosan will offer a 2D machine control factory-installed option that includes a 10-inch Android tablet display running the Trimble Earthworks software application.
Trimble Earthworks allows contractors to use integrated 2D grade control with automatics for Doosan excavators, allowing operators to create smooth, flat, or sloped surfaces easily. When the excavator is placed in Autos mode, the operator controls the stick, and Trimble Earthworks controls the boom and bucket to stay on grade, reducing overcut and increasing production.
“We’re excited to partner with Trimble because it will help expand our Doosan excavator technology offerings and boost our customers’ productivity,” said Jaeuk Kim, Doosan director of product management. “Doosan crawler excavator customers can enhance their trenching accuracy with the increased technology, contributing to an improved ROI. And our dealers can now offer this directly from the factory to our customers.”
Contractors can also work with their Doosan dealer to upgrade their 2D system to 3D through a local SITECH dealer. SITECH is Trimble’s global distribution network, and local Doosan dealer technology partner.
