Caterpillar’s connective technology boosts customer productivity
CAT D6 has Cat GRADE integrated with Slope Assist
Caterpillar and its German dealer Zeppelin Baumaschinen, are exhibiting the manufacturer’s latest technologies for machine efficiency under the theme “Built for It”.
The focus is Cat Connect Technology, which is base hardware or software technology available for Cat or competitive equipment. The technology can be factory fitted or dealer installed. Operators can see machine performance and movements via on-board touchscreens. Site managers can view machine performance and site movements to guide the assets for optimum efficiency.
Caterpillar’s LINK technology captures vital performance and machine health data and makes it available over the web to guide decision-makers.
The GRADE and COMPACT productivity solutions let operators move material faster, more accurately and with fewer passes. PAYLOAD, an on-board system for trucks and loading tools, drives higher efficiency, shorter cycle times and lower cost per tonne.
Cat 360° Advantage is a joint commitment by Caterpillar and Cat dealers to deliver a full circle of expertise, technology-enabled equipment and support services that overcome a customer’s jobsite challenges.
The 336F LN XE and 352F L XE have standard Cat GRADE and PAYLOAD technologies, while the new 323F excavator offers standard Cat GRADE with the all new Assist feature. Assist automates boom and bucket movements, decreasing the operator’s input and increasing the speed and quality of the work done.
Caterpillar’s D6N dozer now comes with Cat GRADE integrated with Slope Assist to allow the operator to work more efficiently and economically on tasks ranging from first cut to finish grade.
