Topcon Positioning Group has announced a new option for Caterpillar Next Gen excavator users to leverage Topcon 3D machine control functionality together with Cat Assist features.
As a result of new compatibility of the Topcon 3D Excavator System with Caterpillar factory installed NGH sensors, customers will experience simplified installation of the Topcon aftermarket system into Caterpillar’s existing 2D excavator systems, in coordination with Topcon and Caterpillar dealers.
The Topcon system (distributed in Australia by Position Partners) is designed to provide real-time, dynamic, on-screen bucket location and design views, resulting in the operator cutting grade faster and more accurately. The operator can create, cut and check designs directly from the cab. Together with Caterpillar boom and bucket automation, operators can deliver quality work all day long with less fatigue.
Position Partners has integrated Topcon machine control on hundreds of Caterpillar machines over the years, including the new Next Gen models. The added compatibility of the Topcon solution and the Cat Assist features will mean even more productivity and an enhanced experience for operators.
