Trimble Australia announces the release of the Trimble DPS900 piling system,
a new application that helps piling contractors increase accuracy, efficiency and
productivity in their operations.
The Trimble DPS900 piling system is a dedicated, land-based 3D machine
control system suitable for a variety of piling machine makes and models. The piling
application’s accuracy enables piling contractors to increase operational
efficiency and reduce costs for building structural foundations, retaining
walls, coffer dams, and solar or wind farm installations.
Alan Sharp, business area director for Trimble Heavy Civil Construction explains
that the DPS900 piling system can transform the way piling contractors work by
introducing automation into a manual and often error prone process. Contractors
can take advantage of the DPS900 system’s accurate positioning and automated
reporting to ensure efficient utilisation of machines.
The DPS900 piling system delivers several benefits to the piling
contractor’s operation including reducing surveying costs associated with
staking and as-built checks; increasing on-site safety by reducing the number
of people around machines, pilings and foundations; and ensuring navigation
time between piles is reduced with accurate positioning, maximising production
and revenue per day.
The built-in reporting capabilities of the DPS900 piling system are
extensive and include automated quality assurance and quality control reporting
that captures start and end positions, time and elevation as well as actual
embedment depth, blow count reporting, and inclination and orientation control.
Unique system logins allow managers to filter reports by operator for better
accountability, production optimisation and forecasting.
Trimble’s Business Centre – HCE office software helps create pile plans
in the office, and allows for integration with data preparation, estimating and
reporting functions. Piling machines can be connected to the office using
Trimble Connected Site solutions for wireless data transfer and GNSS
corrections. Machines can also be tracked and monitored using VisionLink for
location, hours and utilisation information.
The DPS900 piling system is supported and serviced by local SITECH technology
dealers whose expertise with Trimble 3D machine control systems allows piling
contractors to make a smooth transition to machine control workflows and
The new Trimble DPS900 piling system is available now in Australia,
Europe, North America, Chile and South Africa through Trimble’s SITECH
Technology Dealer Channel.
