Cat® Grade with 3D integrates traditional machine control and guidance with machine hardware and software from the factory in order to improve productivity, usability, reliability, job site safety and machine value. It is another example of Caterpillar innovation and technology leading the way for our customers to be more successful.
3D systems use Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) satellite technology to deliver precise blade positioning and location information to the operator in the cab. Using machine-mounted components, position sensing hydraulic cylinders, an off-board GNSS base station, and Real Time Kinematic (RTK) positioning accuracy, these systems provide the information necessary to determine precise blade positioning with centimeter level accuracy. The system computes the positioning information on the machine compared to the position of the cutting edge relative to the design plane and delivers the information to the operator via the standard in-cab display. All the information the operator needs to complete a job is delivered to the cab display, resulting in a greater level of control. Cat Grade with 3D also provides overcut protection and linkage to additional Caterpillar exclusive features like AutoCarry™, Automatic Ripper Control and Load Assist. These systems are ideal for high production dozing and cutting complex 3D contours, such as highway projects.
