New Leica iCON roller secures long-lasting quality, improves productivity

(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 27 September 2016) – Leica Geosystems, industry leader in measurement technology, released today its new iCON roller, providing contractors with the solution to achieve constant and effective compaction on any work site.

As expected from the iCON portfolio, the new iCON roller uses on-screen visualisation to accurately show the user where completed passes have occurred and where more are needed for consistent compaction results. Through vivid colourisation and a simple-to-read window, costly reworks are avoided when pass count progress is constantly tracked.

"At Leica Geosystems, we are continuing to advance the digitisation of the construction industry," said Petter Heyerdahl, Leica Geosystems Machine Control market segment manager. "With our precise positioning and latest visualisation technology, operators are maximising productivity and increasing safety on the most challenging sites. With the new iCON roller, not only do they receive an easy-to-use solution but they can also manage all data directly in the cab of the machine."

Versatile yet rugged solution for field and office
Simple to install, the new iCON roller can be used on any soil and asphalt roller. The rugged panel is fully protected for use on any heavy construction worksite, withstanding extreme temperatures and environmental conditions.

Using Leica Geosystems’ high-accuracy GNSS solutions or total stations even for work inside tunnels, precise positioning is achieved and continuously mapped. The job data is then stored in the panel’s on-board memory. iCON telematics then transfers this data via the cloud to the office for consistent job monitoring, resulting in improved quality control of the overall project. The new iCON roller also includes a reporting tool to generate useful job reports that document all compaction work.
