SUNNYVALE, CA – Trimble and Doosan Infracore North America LLC recently announced the availability of Trimble® LOADRITE® L3180 SmartScale as an option on Doosan® wheel loaders.
The LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale uses weighing intelligence and solid state sensors for more accurate, precise and faster loading. It also connects machines and devices for the collection and syncing of data via the built-in WiFi to InsightHQ™ reporting portal. InsightHQ consolidates live, operational information from Trimble LOADRITE devices on loaders, excavators and conveyors across the site to provide near real-time productivity and performance reports for extraction, processing and load-out operations.
Reengineered from the ground up, Trimble’s innovative, next-generation loader scale platform features smarter weighing, smarter data management and a smarter interface. Intelligence in the weighing software and new hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to load faster and more productively than ever before.
“Our Doosan wheel loader customers will benefit greatly from the new option, helping them do their work more precisely to improve their overall productivity,” said Bill Zak, wheel loader product specialist, Doosan Infracore North America. “This type of technology demonstrates our ongoing commitment to provide our Doosan dealers and customers with state-of-the-art equipment options.”
“With Trimble and Doosan working together, we make the ordering process easier for our contractors and aggregate producers,” said Johan Smet, general manager of Trimble’s Aggregates Division. “Trimble LOADRITE onboard weighing technology on Doosan loaders helps our customers move more material each day.”
The LOADRITE L3180 offers more precise weighing in a wide range of conditions including adjusting for rough terrain, operator technique and machine movement using new weighing intelligence. The system also features digital CAN-bus sensors for noise immunity and ground slope compensation as standard.
Smarter data management
The L3180 now offers in-cab key performance indicators (KPIs), including ton/hour, tons and truck count to enable operators to monitor performance and achieve daily targets. When using Trimble’s cloud-based InsightHQ quarry reporting portal personnel can gain access to site production and operator performance KPIs on desktop or mobile devices. Data is presented in dashboard or graphical formats, including a new loadout performance heatmap, powered by built-in GPS. The system caches data locally and then syncs it with InsightHQ.
The L3180 features a 5.7-inch touchscreen display, which is twice the size of previous generation scales. Colorful graphics, cleaner interface design and the new touchscreen allow for faster menu navigation and interaction. New loading information details including customer and product for each job can be customized on the interface by each operator to match their workflow and make it easier to see the right information for maximum productivity.
