Trimble PCS900 paving control system is now available on Gomaco slipform pavers via CAN-bus integration. The first model with the system is the GHP-2800 four-track paver, with additional models to follow
“We are very excited to be working with Gomaco to give contractors the best possible performance from their slipform pavers,” said Kevin Garcia, segment manager for Trimble Asphalt and Concrete Paving Solutions. “Customers who have already implemented the system for field tests are reporting very impressive International Roughness Index (IRI) readings after using the system.”
Integration gives operators real-time 6-axis control over the pan and the ability to use a 3D design model to control grade and slope. The time and cost of stringlines are completely eliminated.
