Trimble Australia announces the release of the new Trimble DPS900 Piling System designed to help piling contractors increase productivity in the field.
A dedicated, land-based 3D machine control system, Trimble DPS900 Piling System is suitable for a variety of piling machine makes and models, with its accuracy allowing piling contractors to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs for building structural foundations, retaining walls, coffer dams, and solar or wind farm installations.
According to Alan Sharp, business area director for Trimble Heavy Civil Construction, the DPS900 Piling System transforms the way piling contractors work, which is usually manual and often error prone. Contractors can take advantage of accurate positioning and automated reporting functions of the DPS900 system to ensure machines are being utilised efficiently.
Key features and benefits of the Trimble DPS900 Piling System include reduction in surveying costs associated with staking and as built checks; higher on-site safety by reducing the number of people around machines, pilings and foundations; accurate positioning ensuring reduced navigation time between piles, maximising production and revenue per day; built-in automated quality assurance and quality control reporting; and unique system logins allowing managers to filter reports by operator for better accountability, production optimisation and forecasting.
Business Centre – HCE office software by Trimble is used to create pile plans in the office, and allows for integration with data preparation, estimating and reporting functions. Piling machines can be connected to the office using Trimble Connected Site solutions for wireless data transfer and GNSS corrections. Machines can also be tracked and monitored using VisionLink for location, hours and utilisation information.
The DPS900 Piling System is supported and serviced by the local SITECH technology dealer whose expertise with Trimble 3D machine control systems allows piling contractors to make a smooth transition to machine control workflows and minimise downtime.
The new Trimble DPS900 Piling System is available now in Australia, Europe, North America, Chile and South Africa through Trimble’s SITECH Technology Dealer Channel.
