  • Cat Grade with Grade and Slope For Pavers

    The Cat® Grade and Slope system is designed to remove irregularities from the paved surface. The system consists of sensors to control elevation and slope. These sensors can work individually or together to make automatic elevation or cross slope adjustments and maintain the targeted values. Averaging beams equipped with multiple sensors provide a longer averaging area to help remove irregularites for smoother transitions.

  • Cat Grade with Thermal Mapping For Pavers

    Thermal Mapping monitors the surface temperatures of the asphalt utilizing an infra-red camera and a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) enabled by RTK accuracy. Viewing real-time temperatures, contractors can identify variations and take action to manage the plant to paver delivery process and fine-tune paving practices for more uniform lay-down temperatures.
