Trimble Introduces New Integrated Solution For Drilling And Piling Operations

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today introduced the Trimble ® DPS900 Drilling and Piling System, a new machine control solution for drilling and piling contractors. Part of the Trimble Connected Site ® portfolio, the new DPS900 system can enable contractors to perform drilling and piling operations quickly, safely and accurately.

The announcement was made at Maskin Expo 2013, Scandinavia's exhibition for building and construction machinery.

Safe and Efficient Drilling

Trimble DPS900 can help promote jobsite safety by minimizing the need for stakes, construction surveying and personnel near the machine during drilling operations. The DPS900 system gives contractors the ability to precisely drill to the specified location, depth, orientation and inclination angle. Better rock fragmentation and minimized hauling costs can be achieved by optimizing drill hole spacing, angles and the location of the machine for a more even pattern of blasting. Reduced overdrilling means machine bits and hammers last longer, which can result in significant cost savings. In addition, machines can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in almost any conditions so delays due to darkness or bad weather are minimized.

Easy to Use

"The system is so easy to use, an experienced drill operator can become proficient in typically 30 minutes," said Alan Sharp, business area director of Trimble Software Solutions and Specialist Construction Systems. "Engineered for ease of use, Trimble DPS900 features streamlined drilling and piling workflows and an intuitive user interface designed for construction environments."

An Integrated Solution

The Trimble DPS900 is part of the Trimble Connected Site portfolio of solutions that provide a high-level of workflow and process integration from the design phase through to the finished project. The integration of Trimble Business Center – HCE in the office and DPS900 in the field can increase efficiency and productivity of drilling and piling operations. Beginning with accurate job estimating and takeoff, drilling and piling contractors can have more confidence in their estimates by using Business Center – HCE office software. Once production begins, the new Business Center – HCE Drilling and Piling module offers contractors tools to rapidly create optimized drilling and piling plans. The drill plan is then wirelessly synced to the DPS900 system in the field, eliminating the need to drive to the site. To complete the project lifecycle, Business Center – HCE can be used for comprehensive quality and production reporting.
