Världspremiär från Unicontrol: 3D-maskinstyrning utvecklad efter grävlastarens behov12.4.2021 06:00:00 CEST | Pressmeddelande
Först utvecklade Unicontrol världens första 3D-maskinstyrningssystem med inriktning på mindre grävmaskiner. Nu har danska Unicontrol kommit med en ny innovation och utvecklat ett intuitivt maskinstyrningssystem för grävlastare. Det har skett i nära samarbete med den svenska maskintillverkaren Huddig. Tillsammans har de utvecklat användarvänlig styrning åt maskinföraren, som både ökar användningsmöjligheterna och lönsamheten för grävlastare. Ju mindre maskinerna på en byggarbetsplats står still, desto bättre är det för det ekonomiska resultatet i ett byggprojekt. En grävlastare är en mer allsidig och flexibel maskin än en vanlig grävmaskin. Trots det blir maskintypen ofta bortvald på större byggarbetsplatser, eftersom de har saknat fullständig 3D-maskinstyrning av maskinens olika funktioner. Grävlastarna har inte kunnat samla in alla data och har heller inte varit med i byggbranschens digitaliseringsvåg. Denna utmaning har Unicontrol nu löst tillsammans med Huddig. Parterna har anlitat
