Leica iCON excavate solutions now support auto-tilt on SVAB Quantum platform

New development in Leica iCON iXE solutions to complete projects more efficiently

SVAB Leica

(Hallsberg, Sweden, Heerbrugg, Switzerland 26 October 2017) – Excavators equipped with 2D or 3D excavator guidance solutions from Leica Geosystems and tilt rotators supported by SVAB Quantum can now use a new functionality, iXE CoPilot, that enables the tilt function on a tilt rotator to be handled automatically. The tilt will automatically be adjusted so it is held parallel to the surface as the operator pulls in the excavator arm.

 

“We have developed this new function for three reasons,” says Marcus Grevelshøj, product specialist for excavating and wheel loader solutions at Leica Geosystems. “First, to improve the productivity of experienced excavator operators using tilt rotator attachments; next, to decrease the learning curve of less experienced operators; and finally, to decrease fatigue and stress for all operators as they operate a large machine like an excavator.”

 

The automatic tilt function for SVAB Quantum is now available on all Quantum platforms, and former versions of Machine Control System (MACS) platforms can be updated to support the functionality. Tiltrotator brands supported by Quantum and Leica iCON iXE22D solution and Leica iCON iXE3 3D solution will have the possibility to connect to the function.

 

“This new functionality is totally in line with our strategy of creating more efficient and innovative solutions for how to control an excavator,” says Fredrik Eriksson, CEO, SVAB. “Our latest platform Quantum together with Leica Geosystems products give us possibilities to add new dimensions on how to operate an excavator. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Leica Geosystems and our joint journey to deliver unique and innovative capabilities to our customers.”
