Trimble Announces Land-based 3D Piling Application For Mixed Fleets

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) introduced today the Trimble ® DPS900 Piling System, a dedicated, land-based 3D machine control system for a variety of piling machine makes and models. The accuracy of the system allows piling contractors to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs for building structural foundations, retaining walls, coffer dams, and solar or wind farm installations.

"The DPS900 Piling System can transform the way piling contractors work," said Alan Sharp, business area director for Trimble Heavy Civil Construction. "Without DPS900, the process is manual and often error prone. With the DPS900 system, contractors can take advantage of accurate positioning and automated reporting to ensure machines are being utilized efficiently."  

Safety, Quality and Control

The DPS900 Piling System reduces surveying costs associated with staking and as built checks. In addition, the system can increase on-site safety by reducing the number of people around machines, pilings and foundations. Accurate positioning in DPS900 can ensure navigation time between piles is reduced, resulting in increased piling time to maximize production and revenue per day.

Built-in, automated quality assurance and quality control reporting includes capture of start and end positions, time and elevation as well as actual embedment depth, blow count reporting, and inclination and orientation control. In addition, unique system logins allow managers to filter reports by operator for better accountability, production optimization and forecasting.

A Total Solution

Business Center – HCE office software by Trimble is used to create pile plans in the office, and allows for integration with data prep, estimating and reporting functions. Piling machines can be connected to the office using Trimble Connected Site ® solutions for wireless data transfer and GNSS corrections. In addition, machines can be tracked and monitored using VisionLink ® for location, hours and utilization information.


The DPS900 Piling System is supported and serviced by a local SITECH ® technology dealer. Their expertise with Trimble 3D machine control systems allows piling contractors to make a smooth transition to machine control workflows so downtime is minimized.


The new Trimble DPS900 Piling System is available now in Australia, Europe, North America, Chile and South Africa through Trimble's SITECH Technology Dealer Channel.
