Trimble has announced the release of two new products: the CCS900 Compaction Control System, the first compaction control solution that combines finished grade quality control and analysis with advanced compaction control and documentation, and the next generation of the GCS900 Grade Control System, designed to provide contractors with unparalleled speed, performance and flexibility for grade control.
The Trimble CCS900 Compaction Control System is designed to enable the contractor to better control the compaction process, making operations more efficient and productive. Improved efficiency is accomplished by reducing unnecessary passes that might result in overcompaction. Material surfaces are expected to be compacted faster with better in-place densities, so they improve the efficiency of other earthworks operations, such as optimization of haul truck times and improved water drainage and management. Finally, the early detection of subsurface material anomalies means that soft spots and hidden obstructions can be excavated and regraded or compacted prior to the more costly phases of the construction process.
