Topcon Positioning Group’s C-63 system is designed to track precise compaction with minimal equipment operation. It features Topcon GNSS technology and graphical display to provide real-time positioning and plan data, which ensures compaction is achieved in all required areas.

“Compaction is often overlooked when it comes to improving overall job quality,” said Kris Maas, manager of machine control product marketing of Topcon. “Everyone realizes the importance of proper compaction, especially in asphalt paving, but there’s no efficient way to monitor every square-foot of a roadway, parking lot, or other project. Over- or under-compaction can lead to rough roads and premature failures resulting in high repair costs, as well as wasted fuel and lower productivity. The C-63 brings compaction under tight and predictable control.”

As part of Topcon’s new wave of economical indicate 3D systems, the C-63, “demonstrates Topcon’s continued commitment to ensure that all phases of construction and engineering projects reach maximum efficiency through well-managed control,” Maas said. “The system’s graphical display keeps track of cumulative compaction through pass counts and uses easy-to-understand color-coding to indicate compaction status.”

The C-63 also can be integrated into the Topcon Sitelink3D site management system. This allows operators of all rollers or compactors in the same area to see the work already performed by other machines, thereby “preventing wasted efforts of machines traveling over surfaces already compacted to their required amounts, thus saving time and money,” Maas said.

“Combining common engineering data helps to maintain conformance through all phases and gives real-time status updates,” he said.
