Trimble Ready Machines to Debut for Doosan, Hyundai; Volvo CE Signs Integration Agreement

May 9, 2016

Trimble is partnering with OEMs to bring Trimble Ready machine-control technology to more machines.

Doosan customers in Europe and North America will have the option to order a Trimble Ready Doosan DX225LC-5 excavator from the factory. This Trimble Ready excavator enables a faster and simplified installation of Trimble GCS900 2D or 3D Grade Control System components with no welding, re-painting, drilling or disassembly required, the company says.

Hyundai will integrate, engineer and market Trimble Ready factory fit machine control kits to enable the installation of Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System components on select Hyundai excavators in the aftermarket. The installation process eliminates the requirement for drilling, welding, re-painting or disassembly when installing either a Trimble GCS900 2D or GCS900 3D machine guidance solution.

Trimble and Volvo Construction Equipment have signed an integration agreement focusing on establishing a Trimble 3D machine control solution that will integrate with Volvo Dig Assist 2D machine control on Volvo excavators. Integrating the Trimble 3D machine control solution on Volvo Excavators will complement the Volvo Dig Assist capability to enable the use of 3D constructible models, as-built data and other Trimble Connected Site technologies.
