Cutting through the complexity

Drilling and blasting to a defined level and then digging to it, can make a profound difference to your operations. Doing so reduces the amount of dust brought back into the pit, reduces instances of toe (and potential harm to operators), makes it easier to collar during drilling and reduces fuel burn.

Machine control and guidance systems ensure that your loading tool and dozer operators can see your designs in their cab and know that they are excavating to the correct profile and levels without the need for external support (e.g. laser levels or use of GPS rovers).

We were instrumental in bringing the first machine guidance systems into quarries and have years of experience in helping to choose the best system, get it setup and working, train operators and support them.

We supply our clients with the Trimble Earthworks and GCS900 machine guidance systems and associated software and other equipment in conjunction with your local Sitech.

Best Practice Tip

There are a lot of different systems on the market from companies such as Trimble, Topcon, Hemisphere, Leica and others.

Choosing one manufacturer can simplify things in terms of support, file management and operator familiarity.
