Topcon Z53 Auto Grader GPS System
Control your machines and material from start to finish with end-to-end solutions that increase your speed, productivity, and efficiency. We help you accomplish rough grading projects like excavating trenches, dozing landfills, or hauling materials off site with more ease and greater profitability.
By combining equipment hardware with web-based technology, our 3D solutions give you better blade control and collect data as you cut to grade. Confidently measure the exact position, cross slope, and heading of your cutting edge on any surface, including steep slopes and complex surfaces.
With our 3D software solutions you're able to remotely view and manage your grading projects from anywhere. Whether your grading jobs happening down the street or halfway around the world, your always in control.
Install our solutions to move more material in fewer passes at higher speeds, and confidently grade to even the most complex designs. Our automatic grade control systems cut to final grade quickly and accurately. We help you position base material and place final aggregate with reliable, intuitive operations that keep job site tolerances in mind.
For example, our 3D-MC solutions double the performance of any operator on any terrain compared to existing 3D systems, so you'll save time and fuel at every pass.
The combination of our inertial sensor technology with our GNSS receivers and antennas maximizes positional accuracy and allows you to perform at high speeds.
Stay in control on each phase of your project. Our products are interchangeable and offer unique control and communication methods for various types of machines. From milling to ashphalt and concrete paving to final compaction passes, we've got you covered. Building on our previous solutions gives you premier grade automation for asphalt and concrete pavers along with milling machines.
No more cranking - its automatic, for enhanced reliability, increased production rates and compatibility. Our 3D milling solutions deliver precise 3D profiling from a 3D design model to establish milling depth.

3D-MC Integrated 3D Dozer System
A revolutionary dozing system, 3D-MC delivers the highest productivity dozers solution for any rough or fine grading application. 3D-MC uses our industry leading MC2+ IMU sensors on the body and blade as well as an optional third IMU on the C-frame, all to keep blade cutting edge on grade for any application. This system was built to keep you productive on any job site providing maximum speed, control, and performance.
The 3D-MC system can be used for fine grading applications similar to a motor grader. With support for 4-way, 6-way, and pitch control blades, any dozer operation can benefit from a 3D-MC MAX System. The MC2+ IMU sensors work together to keep the blade as close to the surface as possible - delivering a smooth and consistent pass for any slope.
Machine Control LPS - Robotic Total Station and Machine Control
Machine control is most commonly associated with GPS/GNSS positioning systems. However, it can just as effient and accurate to use a LPS (Local Positioning System) method. LPS employs the use of a robotic total station tracking an on-machine prism and utilizing radio communications to inform the machine control system of the machine's real time position. You can build a dedicated Topcon LPS system or LPS can be an option on a system already outfitted for GPS machine control. LPS provides a useful option in areas of bad or impossible satellite or RTK acquisition. This can include areas with tree cover, near tall buildings inside or under overhead structures.
- Can be the only installed, preferred system
- Can be an add-on option when needed
- Efficient and accurate
- Can solve GPS-RTK connection issues
