Video: Why This 3D Machine Control Software Is Digging in During the Labor Shortage

When excavating, precision and efficiency are crucial to success. But heavy construction contractors know that the prevalence of errors and rework combined with the skilled labor shortage can bump up against productivity goals.

3D machine control promises a solution, but does it provide enough return to justify the investment?

In this video, Matthew Basden, regional support engineer for Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, explains the capabilities of MC1, a software solution designed to guide and automate all heavy construction machinery. Matthew demonstrates that by leveraging 3D machine control software designed for ease of use, contractors can reduce errors and rework, increase precision during excavation, and minimize waste generated during the process.

Because of the usability of MC1, amateur operators can be on-spec without needing years of experience in the field. And with the accompanying Leica MCP80 3D Machine Control Panel, operating the excavator is as simple as clicking on a tablet. As a result, contractors can benefit from automated excavation that is fast and accurate whether the operator has 10 months of experience or ten years.

3D machine control is accessible and full of tools to boost contractor’s efficiency on the jobsite while reducing rework, a ready answer in a labor shortage when optimizing the workflow is a must.
