Leica MC1 3D machine control technology available as aftermarket solution for Cat Next Gen 2D excavators
Caterpillar Next Gen Hydraulic (NGH) crawler excavator users now have an additional choice to utilise the advanced capabilities of Leica Geosystems’ 3D machine control solution with Cat Assist features for Caterpillar Next Gen 2D excavators. Thanks to the enhanced compatibility between the Leica Geosystems 3D machine control technology and Caterpillar’s factory-installed NGH sensors, customers can enjoy a streamlined installation process for the Leica Geosystems aftermarket system in their existing Caterpillar 2D excavator systems. This collaborative effort between Leica Geosystems, Caterpillar, and their dealers ensures a smooth transition for customers.
Machine control technology has continuously proven to have numerous benefits to heavy construction operations. Increased productivity, precision, safety, cost savings, less rework, and less waste are only a few. The Leica MC1 solutions support operators to execute their tasks on specification at the first go, with minimum errors and discrepancies from the design. Moreover, the Leica MC1 machine control system can improve safety by reducing the need for manual intervention in hazardous areas and act as an extra “pair of eyes” for blind spots.
Solutions for excavators
Enhance your CAT Grade 2D Assist system by adding the Leica MC1 3D machine control solution to your earthmoving workflow. This technical collaboration brings an additional dimension of precision and control to your machinery operations. While the CAT Grade 2D Assist excels in accurate grading and levelling within the horizontal plane, the Leica 3D machine control system takes it a step further by expanding these capabilities to include the vertical plane as well.
The combination of CAT Grade 2D Assist and Leica MC1 3D machine control empowers operators to achieve superior results, optimise productivity, and minimise material wastage, contributing to more cost-effective and successful projects.
Sales and support
Customers who wish to enjoy the benefits of Leica Geosystems 3D machine control solution with their Caterpillar Next Gen 2D excavators, can inquire about minimum compatibility requirements, license options and support at their local CAT dealer.
The sale and support of the Leica MC1 3D aftermarket machine control system will be handled by the authorised Leica Geosystems channels.
Heavy construction ecosystem
Complex environments like heavy construction sites require simple, integrated, and modern solutions for smooth data exchange, efficient workflows, and automation that enable the users to achieve more.
Leica ConX automatically synchronises with the Leica MC1 solution and allows progress tracking, reporting, volume calculations, and model creation, providing a comprehensive overview of the project’s status.
Moreover, MC1 can be used with various Safety awareness solutions to ensure a safer working place and minimal disruption of construction assets and infrastructure. Leica Geosystems’ Field software, Controllers, and Smart Antennas provide construction-tailored solutions to enable smart digital positioning and measurement workflows.
