Trimble Australia announces a new drilling and piling system that enables increased quality and productivity while helping promote safer operations.
Part of the Trimble Connected Site portfolio, the Trimble DPS900 is a new machine control solution for drilling and piling contractors to perform drilling and piling operations quickly, safely and accurately.
The announcement was made at Maskin Expo 2013, Scandinavia's exhibition for building and construction machinery.
The Trimble DPS900 drilling and piling system delivers safe and efficient drilling, ease of use, workflow and process integration as well as quality components and localised support.
Trimble DPS900 can help promote jobsite safety by minimising the need for stakes, construction surveying and personnel near the machine during drilling operations. The DPS900 system gives contractors the ability to precisely drill to the specified location, depth, orientation and inclination angle. Better rock fragmentation and minimised hauling costs can be achieved by optimising drill hole spacing, angles and the location of the machine for a more even pattern of blasting.
Reduced over drilling means machine bits and hammers last longer, which can result in significant cost savings. The ability of the machines to operate 24/7 in almost any condition minimises delays due to darkness or bad weather.
Alan Sharp, business area director of Trimble Software Solutions and Specialist Construction Systems points out the system’s ease of operation, saying that an experienced drill operator can become proficient in about 30 minutes. Streamlined drilling and piling workflows and an intuitive user interface designed for construction environments also simplify operation for the user.
The Trimble DPS900 is part of the Trimble Connected Site portfolio of solutions that provide a high-level of workflow and process integration from the design phase through to the finished project. The integration of Trimble Business Centre – HCE in the office and DPS900 in the field can increase efficiency and productivity of drilling and piling operations.
The Trimble DPS900 drilling and piling system features the same high quality, rugged components used in other Trimble machine control and site positioning systems. In addition, the system is supported by Trimble’s global SITECH technology dealers, ensuring customers receive expert, local support.
