Trimble GuidEx is the future in machine guidance

Trimble GuidEx is an advanced machine navigation solution intended to quickly and efficiently guide machines along route corridors or to point/pad targets while providing local awareness using exclusion and inclusion zones.

Built to meet the needs of resource exploration activities, this system improves productivity and awareness with easy, efficient, task-specific navigation.

Trimble GuidEx provides crossline navigation along predefined routes via an integrated light bar, including visual and audible alarms when operators breach user-defined distances from a centre line.

Trimble GuidEx also provides point/ pad navigation information with intuitive navigational arrows, supported by a wide variety of data recording settings.

For ultimate flexibility and mobility install and quickly calibrate the Trimble GuidEx system on anything from utility terrain vehicles (UTVs) to heavy equipment, on or off-road.

The Trimble GuidEx Machine Guidance System offers flexible machine guidance for virtually any machine type.

Intuitive Software, Rugged Hardware -Built to meet the needs of resource exploration activities but can be used in many more applications, this system improves productivity and awareness with easy, efficient, task-specific navigation, featuring colorful graphics and a user-friendly and intuitive interface.

Are you ready for undertime?

80% of construction jobs run into overtime. That’s why Trimble has designed the Earthworks Grade Control Platform to help operators do more in less time.

Trimble Earthworks introduces the industry’s first integrated 3D aftermarket excavator automatics capability. In addition, a new dozer configuration moves the receivers from the blade to the roof of the cab.

Reengineered from the ground up, this innovative, next generation grade control platform features intuitive, easy-to-learn software that runs on the Android operating system. State-of-the-art software and hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to work faster and more productively than ever before.

Colourful graphics, natural interactions and gestures, and self-discovery features make the software intuitive and easy to learn. Each operator can personalise the interface to match their workflow and a variety of configurable views make it easier to see the right perspective for maximum productivity.

Plus, Earthworks allows data files to be transferred to or from the office wirelessly and automatically so that the operator is always using the latest design. The Earthworks application can be run on either the new Trimble TD520 display or a third-party Android device.

Trimble Earthworks is available for excavators and with a mastless dozer configuration.
