With its new division "Trimble Aggregates", the American GPS positioning and machine control giant, has now built a dedicated offer to aggregates.
The aggregates sector focus has expanded after acquiring Loadrite, via Actronic Technologies. This New Zealand company specializes in weighing and was acquired by Trimble in 2013. It develops a range of solutions for aggregate producers: weighbridge connectivity, belt scales, loader scales, and excavators. "We have also developed connectivity between our tools. This offers operators the ability to better manage their sites, with production and sales reports tracked in near real time," explains Jerome Thomas, Trimble Aggregates Regional Manager for France. "The creation of Trimble Aggregates adds a number of products - geolocation and fleet management of mobile machines, drilling and machines guidance, drills, drones and more. This creates an overarching view for supervisors and connected workflow”. This is a growing focus for quarries as to how to improve production efficiency, machine productivity, personal safety, monitoring and site management. The scope of the new offer from Trimble Aggregates is expanding, so watch this space.
