Old Friends and New Technology: CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 Wrap up

Measutronics joined Trimble at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, North America’s largest construction trade show, in Las Vegas, NV in March. Measutronics, a Trimble Advanced Marine Partner (AMP), demonstrated Trimble’s latest marine construction guidance systems using Trimble Marine Construction (TMC) software. TMC was displayed on a monitor and mirrored a typical setup an excavator operator might use in dredging and material placement operation. The software demonstration included a model excavator, equipped with sensors that mimic machine control, to give a realistic simulation of real-time excavator guidance in TMC.

During the conference, Darrell Stewart, Director of Operations at Southwind Construction, came to get a first-hand look at TMC software in action. Darrell (middle) met with Measutronics President, Lou Nash (left) and Construction Systems Specialist, Nathan Keys (right) at the booth. It was a reunion for Darrell and Lou as Measutronics’ first dredge guidance system was installed on a cutter suction dredge in the Southwind Construction fleet. Installed in 2003, utilizing Trimble’s HYDROpro software, the system is still in operation today.

Trimble now offers a complete system to provide all the hardware and software necessary for dredge guidance. If you would like more information on these systems and other offerings from Measutronics, please send us an email at sales@measutronics.com.
