3D machine control compatibility options for Cat excavators

By Catrin Jones04 May 2022

Topcon has announced that Caterpillar Next Gen excavators will feature Topcon 3D machine control functionality together with Cat Assist features, including Caterpillar factory-installed NGH sensors.

Jamie Williamson, Topcon executive vice president, said, “With increased pressure for productivity and accuracy, and the industry’s need for skilled operators, the solution is timely.

“The customer will have the benefit of Topcon 3D Excavator System and Caterpillar Assist features working together. Once the user is acquainted with the combined system, it will be easy to be a more productive operator.”

The company says that the Topcon system is designed to provide real-time, on-screen bucket location as well as design views.

The operator has the ability to create, cut, and check designs directly from the cab – cutting grade faster and more accurately. Together with Caterpillar boom and bucket automation, operators can deliver quality work all day long with less fatigue.
