Technology Pays Off


Technology is changing the game in the paving industry—thanks to simple-to-operate solutions that reduce project duration, equipment hours, fuel consumption, labor hours and more. All that adds up to a more productive, efficient and safe jobsite. From 3D paving to compaction monitoring to systems that link your paving and support equipment, our easy-to-use technologies help put you in the fast lane to profitability and onto your next project in record time.

Go Beyond Operator Intuition with Cat Compaction Control

Improve quality and efficiency with information that enables the operator to determine when soil compaction meets specifications. The system can be scaled from a simple real-time compaction readout to a fully featured data mapping capability.

Asphalt Compaction: Auto Features Enhance Productivity & Consistency

Auto-Adjustable Compaction delivers the highest amplitude possible to reach target asphalt density as quickly as possible, while Passcount Mapping and Temperature Mapping provides real-time visual references of mat coverage and mat temperatures, reducing inconsistencies.

Oscillatory Vibe System for Asphalt Compactors

Oscillatory Vibration System combines standard vibration on the front drum with oscillation technology on the rear drum. The oscillation system performs effectively on thin lifts and near sensitive structures such as buildings, bridge decks, and over underground utilities.

Intelligent Compaction Enhances Jobsite Efficiency

Better quality. Greater uniformity. More confidence. That's what you get from the Cat Compaction Control suite of technologies. These measurement, positioning and analysis systems give your operators the real-time data to determine when compaction conforms to specification—ensuring complete coverage and efficient, uniform work.
