Topcon MC-Max for Asphalt

March 26, 2024
Systems provide control for asphalt pavers and milling machines.

MC-Max Asphalt Paving and MC-Max Milling solutions have been added to the lineup of machine control solutions.

The intelligent-paving systems are made up of GNSS receivers, total stations, displays, and other high-precision sensors. They are built with the MC-X machine control platform, which the company says allows for customization and allows for upgrades as a user’s needs change.

Users can choose from entry-level 2D systems that follow a reference, such as a string or a curb, or automated solutions that track an asphalt paver or milling machine in 3D. Contractors can automatically pave and mill at variable depths.

The new solutions are currently compatible with OEM CAN-based systems and will be expanded to include compatibility with additional aftermarket systems.
