Trimble and ABI GMBH Offer Trimble Ready Option for Piling and Drilling Machines

WESTMINSTER, CO — Trimble and ABI Maschinenfabrik und Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH announce the introduction of a Trimble Ready factory option for new ABI MOBILRAM-Systems and DELMAG Drill Rigs. ABI piling and drilling machines shipped from the factory will be ready for the installation of the Trimble Groundworks Machine Control System, which can significantly reduce the cost and complexity of the installation for the contractor.

When an ABI MOBILRAM-System or DELMAG Drill Rig is purchased, the option to install a Trimble Groundworks base kit is now available. This base kit provides mounting hardware, brackets, and an integrated wiring harness.

"Trimble enables our customers to map the entire construction process from planning to quality management. On construction sites, for example, the pile grid does not have to be measured in place," said Tobias Schmidt, Head of Control Engineering Electrics at ABI. "A significant advantage of the Trimble Ready solution is the direct communication with the ABI control system, so that the sensor technology available on the machines can be integrated. The necessary mounting options on the machine are already prepared. This significantly reduces the costs required to equip a system from Trimble."

"Both Trimble and ABI are committed to providing innovative solutions for drilling and piling operations," said Kevin Garcia, General Manager at Trimble Civil Construction. "Trimble Groundworks technology on ABI foundation machines can deliver outstanding quality while increasing productivity and keeping our customers safer in the field. Improving the efficiency of the drilling and piling workflow is always the goal for both companies."

Trimble Groundworks is a machine control solution that enables contractors to perform drilling and piling operations quickly, safely, and accurately. Trimble Groundworks is part of the Trimble Connected Site portfolio of solutions that provide a high-level of workflow and process integration from the design phase through to the finished project. The integration of Trimble software in the office and Trimble Groundworks in the field can increase the efficiency and productivity of drilling and piling operations, wirelessly syncing data to reduce site visits.
