Position Partners wins National Product Innovation and External Training Program of the Year awards

At this year’s National Earthmover and Civil Contractor and Civil Train awards, Position Partners took home the Product Innovation award for Topcon Millimetre GPS (mmGPS) machine control as well as the External Training Program of the Year for Campus machine control courses.

Topcon mmGPS machine control is unique in the civil construction industry and it delivers unparalleled accuracy for fine grading applications through to kerbing and slipform paving.

Unlike other solutions that can require multiple total stations to achieve the tight tolerances required for these applications, Topcon’s solution is the only one of its kind worldwide to combine a precision laser transmitter with GNSS positioning.

“We are thrilled to win this award for Topcon mmGPS as it is truly revolutionary technology that is capable of delivering remarkable efficiency and improved accuracy for Australian contractors,” said Harry Katsanevas, Position Partners’ Machine Systems Business Manager.

Machine control training courses run by the Campus team at Position Partners give contractors a thorough background knowledge of what machine control technology is, how it works, the various components used on the machine and the workflow to complete a project.

“As with any technology, understanding how it works and knowing how to use it to its full potential enables users to reap the benefits, work more efficiently and maximise productivity for their business,” said Garry Fleming, Position Partners’ Partnering Services Manager.

Tips and tricks, troubleshooting 101, understanding software capabilities, best practice checks and calibrations, plus machine file configuration are just some of the items covered on the Campus machine control courses.
