New Version of Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform Includes Support for Motor Graders and Automatic Guidance for Tiltrotators
The announcement was made today at Trimble Dimensions.
"The introduction of the motor grader into the Trimble Earthworks platform completes the family of earthmoving machines," said
Trimble Earthworks for Motor Graders
Trimble Earthworks for Motor Graders leverages Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensor technology in combination with GNSS, resulting in increased accuracy and stability in fine grading applications. Operators will enjoy the same intuitive, easy-to-use and learn Trimble Earthworks software available for excavators and dozers. Contractors can take advantage of the increased hardware portability available across their fleet for an even quicker return on their machine control investment.
Automatic Guidance for Tiltrotator Attachments
When tiltrotators are used with Trimble Earthworks for Excavators, the bucket position and orientation are always visible regardless of bucket rotation. The operator can see the height and the rotation relative to the design, so the attachment can be more efficient. Now, Trimble Earthworks can automate the tilt functions of a tiltrotator to enable operators of all skill levels to be significantly more productive when using these attachments.
Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform version 1.7 is available now from the SITECH® dealer channel. For more information, visit: http://construction.trimble.com/earthworks.
