The new Trimble® Earthworks for Excavators Grade Control Platform is designed to help you do more in less time. Reengineered from the ground up, our innovative, next generation grade control platform features intuitive, easy- to-learn software that runs on an Android operating system. And state-of-the-art software and hardware give operators of all skill levels the ability to work faster and more productively than ever before.
INTUITIVE SOFTWARE, RUGGED HARDWARE
The Trimble Earthworks grade control app runs on the new 10-inch (25.7 centimeter) Trimble TD520 touch-screen Android display. Each operator can personalize the interface to match their workflow and a variety of configurable views make it easier to see the right perspective for maximum productivity. Earthworks allows data files to be transferred to or from the office wirelessly and automatically so you’ve always got the latest design. Using the Android operating system, you can download other useful applications. And for more flexibility, the Trimble Earthworks software can be used on third-party Android tablets.
With Trimble Earthworks, you can now take advantage of the first integrated 3D aftermarket grade control automatics for excavators. Excavators can work semi-automatically, allowing operators to create smooth, flat or sloped surfaces more easily.
How it works:
1. The excavator is placed in Autos mode
2. The operator controls the stick
3. Trimble Earthworks controls the boom and bucket
4. Stay on grade, reduce overcut and increase production
Achieve grade consistently, with high accuracy and in less time
by automating excavator operation with Trimble Earthworks.
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, reduce overcut and increase production. By automating excavator operation, Trimble Earthworks allows operators to achieve grade consistently, with high accuracy and in less time.
"Trimble pioneered machine control," said Scott Crozier, director of marketing for Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction. "Now, Trimble Earthworks takes machine control to the next level, with a platform that reinvents machine control technology, making it easy to use and learn, and more accessible for many different types of contractors."
