Finning and SITECH at Hillhead 2016
Among new products at Hillhead will be the Caterpillar 730C2 articulated truck
Finning UK and Ireland and its technology partner, SITECH UK and Ireland, will be showcasing new machines and new technologies at Hillhead 2016.
In the static display area, new products include the Caterpillar 730C2 articulated truck; the Cat 323FL excavator grade with assist, and the Cat 352FL XE hydraulic excavator, equipped with the Cat Adaptive Control System (ACS) valve and Trimble 3D GPS.
In the live demonstration area, there will be a Cat 745C articulated truck with Caterpillar Production Measurement (CPM) and a Cat D6N LGP with Cat Grade Control technology and Trimble 3D software.
Complementing Caterpillar technology, SITECH UK and Ireland will showcase Trimble’s 2D and 3D machine control capabilities, site-positioning software, and provide a live demonstration of its site surveying services.
“Our industry is rapidly changing. Technology and data-driven sites are becoming more and more important to our customers’ operations,” says Kevin Parkes, managing director at Finning UK and Ireland.
“It’s important to emphasise that this is not technology for technology’s sake, but an integrated service which helps to solve, and even anticipate, customer problems. Alongside the static and demo areas, our stand will provide customers with an interactive experience with touch-screen technology and virtual reality.”
