Productive, Integrated and Innovative

Guided by a 2D reference or 3D design model, Trimble Paving Control Systems can help you spend less on materials and finish faster. 

Trimble Roadworks and PCS900 3D

  • Lay the finished surface with accuracy to 0.01 feet (3 millimeters)
  • Minimize the use of expensive material
  • Pave within a tighter tolerance and get closer to the minimal asphalt thickness specification
  • Reduce labor costs by controlling the screed with one operator
  • Reduce operator mistakes with the easy-to-use display interface
  • Lay complex designs such as transitions, super-elevated curves and frequently changing cross slopes
  • Achieve accuracy and smoothness specifications, which can mean a bigger bonus

Trimble 3D Paving Control in Action

Peter Brooks, paving control expert from SITECH UK/Ireland, goes onsite at a major UK road job to explain how Trimble 3D machine control systems work on asphalt pavers like those used by Aggregate Industries.

Trimble Hot Swap

Trimble Hot Swap instantly transfers total station control without the operator needing to stop the machine to make adjustments or re-calibrate.

3D Paving Control

The Trimble Roadworks 3D Paving Control Platform and Trimble PCS900 3D Paving Control System allow you to accurately control the screed to pave with variable depth and slope based on a 3D design.

  • Take out high and low areas early in the process with the less expensive first layer materials
  • Increase road smoothness while using less asphalt than with traditional paving methods
  • Lay complex designs such as transitions, super-elevated curves and frequently changing cross slopes
  • Achieve accuracy and smoothness specifications, which can mean bonus income
  • Eliminate the time consuming and costly step of setting out stringline

Pave to a Design

  • Create a 3D model in Trimble Business Center and load onto the in-cab display
  • Use the SPS930 Universal Total Station and on-board software and hardware to compare the actual screed position and slope with the 3D model
  • The system automatically guides the screed to lay exactly the right material thickness and slope
