Junttan Oy to Offer Trimble Groundworks Machine Control for Piling Machines from the Factory

WESTMINSTER, CO — Trimble and Junttan Oy announce the availability of Trimble Groundworks Machine Control System for Piling Machines as a factory option on Junttan Oy foundation machines.

Trimble Groundworks is a 3D machine control system that improves efficiency and reduces downtime with stakeless navigation, productivity and quality monitoring, and office-to-field connectivity. The system helps optimize productivity by enabling operations day and night and under almost any conditions. Using 2D or 3D guidance, Trimble Groundworks provides accurate piling depth and direction. The system reduces driving time per pile for piling machines, decreasing fuel usage to improve jobsite sustainability.

"Junttan strongly believes in the benefits of digitalization in the piling construction field, and we are excited to include a GPS machine control system in our product offering," said Karoliina Pesola, Head of Digital and Measuring Solutions at Junttan. "Trimble Groundworks connected to Junttan's machine control system PCD will provide a new dimension to our customers' piling experience."

"Both Trimble and Junttan have a long history of providing innovative solutions for piling operations," said Kevin Garcia, General Manager for Trimble Civil Specialty Solutions. "Trimble Groundworks technology on Junttan foundation machines will enable our customers to maximize piling productivity and safety, with a reliable and accurate workflow."

More Efficient and Safer Workflows
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 piling operations, wirelessly syncing data to reduce site visits.

Trimble Groundworks allows operators to create an in-field design for piling and create piling reports. To reduce blind spots, administrators can set avoidance zones in the design file. With these stakeless workflows, Trimble Groundworks reduces the need for surveyors and other personnel to be near the machine, making job sites safer.
