Trimble Australia announces the acquisition of the Auckland, New Zealand-based Actronic Holdings Limited. The privately-held Actronic Technologies is a leading provider of weighing technology and payload information systems for construction, aggregates, mining and waste markets.
The industry leading LOADRITE weighing system by Actronic Technologies for wheel loaders, excavators, conveyors and waste collection vehicles provides equipment operators, site foremen and project managers with accurate payload weights, ensuring that machines are loaded to optimal capacity and loads are accurately recorded. Weight information combined with fleet dynamics and cycle time tracking provides metrics for monitoring and improving both machine and project performance.
The LOADRITE system will extend Trimble’s Connected Site portfolio by adding weight as an element of information collected at the machine, better enabling contractors to use the Trimble Connected Site to achieve improved comprehensive real-time intelligence on asset and site productivity for their mixed fleet.
Roz Buick, vice president and general manager of Trimble’s Heavy Civil Construction Division explains that the acquisition of Actronic Technologies empowers machine operators, foremen, supervisors and project managers to understand machine performance and progress across the entire site within the aggregate, construction, mining and waste industries. He adds that LOADRITE weighing systems will complement the productivity and reporting capabilities already provided by Trimble Connected Site to their customers.
According to Gottfried Pausch, general manager for Actronic Technologies, the addition of the LOADRITE system to Trimble’s leading portfolio of positioning and automation technology solutions extend their collective ability to deliver more powerful and robust solutions designed to improve operational efficiency and reporting, allowing customers to maximise their profits.
