Unicontrol3D Machine Control: Supporting Excavators With City Boom

February 24, 2021

This week, we have calibrated our two first systems for excavators with a city boom for Skjern Maskinforetning A/S.

They will be used for a big project in Western Jutland, Denmark, preparing the grounds for a large waterpark.

The city boom is designed to increase the flexibility of the excavator – and makes more space for the bucket as it allows it to come closer to the cabin. That’s the reason why it is especially useful when working in the city, where the space needed to reverse may be a challenge.

With regards to a 3D navigation system, it requires a little extra mathematical modeling to adapt the system to the flexibility of the city boom.

Our system is on an exciting journey and taking off in the construction industry – and so we need to meet our customers' needs, where possible.

We’re excited that we’re now able to offer a great, user-friendly 3D navigation system to customers using excavators with city boom.

You’re always welcome to contact us for an informal chat about what we can do for you. We are keen to work with contractors and operators as much as possible – and try our best to meet the needs of our customers.
