The 3D-MC2 system updates the position of the machine and blade 100 times per second in nine dimensions to provide “unmatched stability and responsiveness.” Using the next-generation Windows XP control box, the GX-60 is a touch screen computer with a faster processor to work with larger job files. Paradigm G3 technology accesses all available satellite systems now and in the future. Estimated list price: $72,000.

The Smoothtrac upgrade to Topcon’s sonic averaging system (SAS) for asphalt paving is designed to facilitate installation, adjustability and expandability.

The SmoothRide vehicle-mounted resurfacing system for paving and milling projects uses a combination of the company’s core technologies, designed to deliver a smooth surface while managing the quantity of material for each project.
