Trimble Paving Control Systems can help you:

  • Lay the finished surface with accuracy to 0.01 feet (3 millimeters)
  • Minimize 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
  • Eliminate 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

The Trimble PCS900 3D Paving Control System allows 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

The Trimble PCS900 system leverages the Trimble SPS930 Universal Total Station, MT900 Machine Target and on-board software to compare the actual screed position and slope with the 3D digital design. It automatically guides the screed to lay exactly the right material thickness and slope.
