Topcon and JCB collaborate on 3D machine control excavation options

First published12/07/2018

Topcon Positioning Group and JCB are collaborating to provide the Topcon X-53x as a plug-and-play option for the new JCB 220X crawler excavators.

The excavators are the first models in the next generation of JCB tracked machines for the global construction market, and come with a Topcon pre-wire option from the factory. The companies are collaborating through their extensive dealer networks to provide customers with the highest level of technology and support.

“We are excited to bring our leading machine control technology and dealer network into this unique opportunity to work with JCB on the excellent product they are bringing to market,” said Ulrich Hermanski, vice president Topcon Construction Business EMEA (Europe Middle East & Africa).

The Topcon X-53x is designed to provide precise positioning of the boom, stick and bucket at all times. “The system maximizes output up to 30 percent more than machines without a 3D system and provides a customizable machine control platform to address future project demands. We are proud to bring this Topcon system option to the operators of the JCB machines,” said Hermanski.

The option is currently available for the EMEA region.
