Trimble’s stand will include a range of machine control systems for earthmoving and road building equipment.

Among the equipment for heavy civil engineering projects being presented and demonstrated by Trimble will be a range of machine control systems for excavators, dozers, graders, compactors, milling machines and pavers.

Trimble says its Grade Control Systems enables contractors to increase efficiency in earthmoving and decrease costs by working faster, with more accuracy and reduced rework. Similarly, its paving solutions help contractors build new roads and resurface existing roads by minimising the amount of expensive asphalt and eliminating road waves for a smoother surface.

Trimble will feature its new Flex family of machine control solutions. The GCSFlex for excavators and CCSFlex for soil and asphalt compactors are easy-to-install, easy-to-learn and easy-to-use, according to the company. They are designed to offer small to mid-sized contractors a reliable, flexible and affordable machine control system.

The company will also show its portfolio of Site Positioning Systems for the construction surveyor, supervisor, grade checker and other personnel on the job site. They can be used to perform surveys, grade checking, volume measurements and as-built surveys.
