Trimble Roadworks 2D Paving Control Platform AdvancesÂ Machine ControlÂ withÂ Integrated 2D Aftermarket Asphalt Paver Automatics
SUNNYVALE, Calif. ”TrimbleÂ (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today TrimbleÂ®Â Roadworks 2D Paving ControlÂ Platform for asphalt pavers, an automatic screed control system that canÂ improve the accuracy and productivity in applications ofÂ asphalt paving.Â Trimble Roadworks enables paving contractors to minimize the waste of expensiveÂ asphalt material, achieveÂ optimal rideability results as well as finish theirÂ projects on time and budget.
Trimble’sÂ innovative, next-generation paving control platform features intuitive,Â easy-to-learn software built on the Android operatingÂ system. The state-of-the-artÂ system gives operators of all skill levels the ability to work faster and moreÂ productively than everÂ before.
“TrimbleÂ Roadworks takes paving control to the next level,” said Kevin Garcia,Â general manager for Trimble Civil SpecialtyÂ Solutions. “This new platformÂ leverages the intuitive Trimble machine control interface and applies it toÂ asphalt pavers, making itÂ easy to use and learn, and more accessible for manyÂ different types of contractors.”
TrimbleÂ Roadworks can use a multitude of 2D references to pave with a fixed thickness,Â making it an ideal lower-cost option forÂ roads that have been graded or milledÂ using 3D machine control. It can be used in production paving applications suchÂ asÂ highways, state roads, airports and large commercial surfaces.
UtilizingÂ the same interface as the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform and many ofÂ the same sensors as the TrimbleÂ PCS400 2D Paving Control System, currentÂ Trimble technology users will need minimal training to get started with TrimbleÂ Roadworks.
IntuitiveÂ Software, Flexible Hardware
TheÂ Trimble Roadworks paving control application runs on a 7-inch (18 centimeter)Â Trimble TD510 touchscreen display. AlsoÂ featuring two external keypads, contractorsÂ can easily change sensor values and input data in the field.
The TD510 interface is optimized forÂ productivity with colorful graphics, natural interactions and gestures andÂ self-discovery featuresÂ making the software intuitive and easy to learn. UsingÂ the Android operating system, operators can download other applications thatÂ provide additional useful tools inside the cab such as weather andÂ communications apps.Â Â Â Â
Trimble Roadworks can be mounted on a varietyÂ of new and existing asphalt paving machines, regardless of manufacturer. TheÂ flexibleÂ system can be configured with a combination of sonic tracers, slopeÂ sensors, averaging beam and contact sensors, with the ability toÂ quickly andÂ easily change sensors based on the application. Trimble's system components areÂ rugged and durable for toughÂ construction conditions.
TrimbleÂ Roadworks Paving Control for asphalt pavers is available now through theÂ worldwide SITECH distribution channel. ForÂ more information, visit:Â Â construction.trimble.com/roadworks.
