Kobelco to Integrate Trimble's Next Generation Machine Control for its Excavators
The announcement was made at
"We are excited that
The Trimble Earthworks grade control application is built on the Android operating system, and runs on the new 10-inch Trimble TD520 touch-screen display. The Earthworks application was developed based on feedback from construction equipment operators around the world, resulting in an interface optimized for productivity. Colorful graphics, natural interactions and gestures, and self-discovery features make the software intuitive and easy to learn. Each operator can personalize the interface to match their workflow and a variety of configurable views make it easier to see the right perspective for maximum productivity.
In addition, Earthworks allows data files to be transferred to or from the office wirelessly and automatically so that the operator is always using the latest design. Using the Android operating system, users can download other applications that provide the operator with additional useful tools inside the cab. To make the system even more flexible, contractors can opt to use the Trimble TD520 display or a third-party Android device.
With Trimble Earthworks, contractors can now take advantage of the first integrated 3D aftermarket grade control automatics with Kobelco SK210LC-9 excavators, allowing operators to create smooth, flat or sloped surfaces more 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, reduce overcut and increase production. By automating excavator operation, Trimble Earthworks allows operators to achieve grade consistently, with high accuracy and in less time.
Trimble Earthworks for Kobelco SK210LC-9 excavators is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2017 from the SITECH® dealer channel.
