New Technology Solutions Flood Out of Trimble. . . . . . continued
Database-driven estimating solution fully integrated with your quantity takeoff tools? With Trimble GCEstimator, you have exactly that. One database of your items and assemblies right alongside your 3D BIM quantities and your 2D electronic plan takeoff.
Trimble Field Link software offers an easy-to-use interface and workflows designed for general contractors to locate and record layout points with a range of field sensors including robotic total stations, the Trimble Rapid Positioning System and GNSS technology.
The R8s GNSS receiver takes advantage of Global Positioning System (GPS) and other satellite-based positioning systems to provide general contractors with a convenient way to perform daily tasks such as formwork, deck layout and QA/QC routines.
Trimble Field Link 3.4 is made for contractors and tailored for building construction applications, so contractors stay focused on completing the task at hand.
With wired or wireless connectivity, Trimble Field Link syncs field and office, to ensure that only the latest iterations of designs and reports are available in the field and QA/QC results are available immediately.
Collaboration on large projects is further simplified with Trimble Connect compatibility. Trimble Connect is a cloud-based collaboration platform that provides coordinated information across the Design-Build-Operate (DBO) continuum, streamlining the process of combining Building Information Modeling (BIM), 3D and 2D models via the Web.
Trimble and Rototilt Combination
Trimble and Rototilt announced that excavator operators can now achieve accurate guidance when using a tilt rotator attachment with the Rototilt Positioning Solution and the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System.
Using the these, operators know the attachment’s precise position relative to the excavation in progress. This innovative new technology allows the operator to plot both the height and rotation line, which makes the attachment more effective in construction jobs such as precision grading, excavation in confined areas or moving large volumes of earth.
Our heavy equipment customers have been seeking a solution that allows excavator operators to leverage guidance for excavation but also control tilt rotator attachments,
said Ryan Kunisch, marketing director for Trimble’s Civil Engineering and Construction Division.
Working closely with Rototilt, we’ve been able to meet the need by optimizing the Trimble grade control system’s performance on excavators equipped with Rototilt attachments allowing operators to be more accurate and efficient.
Control of the attachment’s tilt and rotation angles by the Rototilt Positioning Solution combined with precise positioning from Trimble can mean time and fuel savings for contractors.
This new technology also makes work significantly easier for the operator, by making bucket position and orientation always visible no matter how the bucket is rotated.
As a result, the operator is able to work significantly more efficiently and accurately with Rototilt Positioning Solution connected to the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System.
