Leica MC1 2D and 3D machine control technology for Liebherr dozers and excavators
Leica Geosystems and Liebherr have formed a powerful partnership to extend their offerings of 2D, 3D and “3D-ready” machine control technology for dozers and excavators. By combining Liebherr’s expertise in heavy machinery with Leica Geosystems’ precision measurement technology, customers can benefit from a range of offerings to enhance accuracy, productivity, and safety on construction sites.
For dozers, the partnership offers advanced blade control systems that enable precise grading and levelling, minimising rework and optimising material usage in the form of a Leica Ready factory kit. Excavators can be upgraded with easy-to-use 2D or 3D guidance systems that enable operators to work with enhanced precision and avoid over-excavation. In addition, productivity can be significantly increased by using a semi-automatic machine control system offered ex-works or as retrofit for wheeled excavator Generation G6 and Generation 6 and 8 crawler excavator models.
Enjoy the benefits of machine control technology from Leica Geosystems, which supports 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 dozers and excavators
Leica Geosystems’ machine control systems are available in different versions for Liebherr wheeled excavators, crawler excavators, and dozers ex-factory.
The Leica MC1 2D, 3D and “3D-ready” machine control solution is with or without semi-automatic system is available for the wheeled excavator Generation 6 and crawler excavator Generation 6 and Generation 8.
For dozers, the partnership offers a swift and fast installation of Leica Geosystems’ machine control systems in the region, such as the Leica iCON iGD4SP, iGD2 and iGD3 for bulldozers.
Sales and support
Through their authorised Liebherr dealer, for the respective equipment variants, customers have a range of options to choose from Leica MC1 2D "3D-ready", Leica MC1 3D, all solutions can be ordered optionally with the semi-automatic ex-factory.
All machine control components from Leica Geosystems are optimally installed during the production process and the customer receives a pre-calibrated machine. Downtimes due to subsequent installation can thus be avoided.
The sale and support of Leica Geosystems machine control technology as an aftermarket solution are 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.
