The new 336F XE Delivers Production Efficiency with Integrated Cat® Production Measurement for Consistently Accurate Loads

For Release in Europe: March 2015
Release Number: 69PR15

The 336F XE just got more efficient with Cat® Production Measurement, a Cat Connect Payload technology that improves loading and hauling productivity in applications where customers require precision weighing and accurate loads.  This industry-first integrated on-the-go payload system for excavators weighs loads as the boom swings—with no interruption in the loading cycle. Advanced weighing features enable the operator to make quick, time saving load adjustments at final pass, before loading the truck. Payload data can be viewed at a glance through the in-cab display to assist operators with fast, efficient loading to exact specification—without under or overloading, maximizing hauling potential and performance of the entire fleet. Data is stored to help managers calculate daily volumes, monitor production, and manage their business. With Cat Production Measurement, customers benefit from faster cycle times, higher productivity, and lower fuel and operating costs.

Integrated Design

Cat Production Measurement is fully integrated into the machine systems and display at the factory. Deep integration allows the system to use existing components and sensors on the machine to optimize performance and reliability at an affordable price.

Modes and Features

Advanced weighing modes assist with payload accuracy and speed the loading cycle.

  • Automatic Weighing – Estimates material weight by simply swinging the loaded bucket, which is especially useful during same-level or bench loading.
  • Transfer-On-Weigh – Previews material weight plus total truck payload enabling operators to dump excess material from the bucket to achieve target weight.
  • Overload Alert – notifies operator on-screen when the final bucket load exceeds truck payload limit.
     

Productivity Monitoring

Operators can track loader productivity from the cab—with quick access to daily payload weights, load and cycle counts, and totals. When combined with LINK technologies, managers can access payload data, plus production and fuel efficiency metrics—all in one place using VisionLink® Payload Reporting. Comprehensive reporting helps managers quickly manage material movement, evaluate fleet and operator performance, and make timely decisions to meet production targets and improve jobsite efficiency.
