Factory-fitted 2D and 3D-ready semi-automated excavator control solutions

The solutions - known as INTELLIGRADE - will be available initially on the JCB 220X tracked excavator in the United Kingdom before being offered across the whole JCB X Series range in additional regions. Leica Geosystems 2D and 3D-ready machine control solutions are available with semi-auto configuration to enhance productivity, accuracy, and safety by automating functions such as boom, bucket and tilt rotator control, and to reduce human error in construction operations. Working to predetermined site plans, the 2D machine control system provides real-time guidance and accuracy for tasks such as grading and levelling, ensuring the excavator's bucket or blade achieves the desired slope or elevation. This solution is ideal for projects that involve simple terrain or require basic grading. Customers looking for even greater accuracy, more precision and additional semi-auto functionality on earthmoving applications can choose the 3D-ready option to retain the flexibility of upgrading to 3D in the future. To upgrade the factory solution to a 3D version, customers can contact their local Leica Geosystems sales office or dealer, who will support with calibration and installation at the JCB dealership or at the customer’s premises.
