Trimble and Doosan North America Announce Factory-Installed Machine Control Solution for Doosan Crawler Excavators
SUNNYVALE, Calif.— Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) and Doosan Infracore North America announced today that Doosan will offer the Trimble® Earthworks Grade Control Platform for Excavators as an optional factory-installed machine control solution for the North American market. Trimble Earthworks is a grade control solution designed to make grading more accurate, faster and easier in a range of applications, including residential and commercial sites, trenches, embankments, ditches and finished slope work.
Doosan will offer a 2D machine control factory-installed option that includes a 10-inch Android™ tablet display running the Trimble Earthworks software application. This option includes rugged Trimble hardware, designed and tested for the harsh conditions found on construction sites.
“We’re excited to partner with Trimble because it will help expand our Doosan excavator technology offerings and boost our customers’ productivity,” said Jaeuk Kim, Doosan’s director of Product Management. “Doosan crawler excavator customers can enhance their trenching accuracy with the increased technology, contributing to an improved ROI. And our dealers can now offer this directly from the factory to our customers.”
“Trimble and Doosan are working together to make it easier for contractors to benefit from construction technology,” said Tom Austin, OEM business development manager for Trimble Civil Construction. “Our mutual customers will benefit from the collaboration between Doosan and Trimble with improved productivity, less down time and faster ROI.”
With Trimble Earthworks, contractors can now take advantage of integrated 2D grade control with automatics for 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, reducing overcut and increasing production. By automating excavator operation, Trimble Earthworks allows operators to achieve grade consistently, with high accuracy and in less time. Customers should check with their local Doosan equipment dealer and confirm if this option is available for their preferred model.
Upgrade to 3D
Contractors can work with their Doosan dealer to upgrade their 2D system to 3D through a local SITECH® dealer. SITECH is Trimble’s global distribution network and local Doosan dealer technology partner, providing installation services, personalized training and local technical support for Trimble construction technology.
Factory-installed Trimble machine control for Doosan crawler excavators is now available to order in North America from the Doosan dealer network.
