Leica Geosystems introduces stringless paving on the one-for-all Leica MC1 software platform

New Leica iCON offering becomes latest addition to one-for-all MC1 software platform

(HEERBRUGG, Switzerland, 10 March 2020) –  Leica Geosystems, a Hexagon company,released the update of the latest  Leica iCON asphalt paving solution on the one-for-all  Leica MC1 software platform. With the all-in-one machine control platform MC1, Leica Geosystems delivers an intelligent and intuitive hardware and software combination supporting multiple machines for the heavy construction industry, including asphalt pavers.

3D stringless paving was invented more than 20 years ago by Leica Geosystems to increase safety on site. Two-decades of experience and continuous innovation led to the Leica iCON pave machine control solution to make paving work easier for asphalt operator and contractors, delivering high-quality surface finish consistently and faster than traditional methods.

The asphalt paving solution enables operators to precisely place cement-treated base course or start asphalt paving directly without waiting for manual stakeouts. The operator can change the height offset directly on the run screen, and thanks to the automatic leapfrogging, paving surface quality is increased. The solution is fully compatible with Leica iCON site and Leica ConX for seamless data sharing, file transfer, as-built documentation, track, view and sync functions.

“The MC1 simplifies design data handling and is open to all standard design data types, enabling a flexible data flow to support common workflows on road construction or paving job site,” said Kris Maas, director of product management of machine control at Leica Geosystems. “With the release of the updated MC1 software, Leica Geosystems is bringing new features to the iCON pave solution to further increase accuracy, save time, costs, and provide consistent high paving quality 24/7.”

Increased paving accuracy

MC1 software has now been released for the entire iCON road segment, including soil compactors, concrete pavers, asphalt pavers and milling machines. The software has an uncluttered and user-friendly interface with the latest updates included:

•    Support of the  Leica MSS400 sensors.
•    Terrain models for milling and asphalt pavers.
•    Smartspare TPS, a new feature for the handling of spare TPS tracking and lock to target.
•    Support of the  iCR80S construction total station.

“The changes made from PaveSmart to Leica iCON are big, and it seems like Leica Geosystems listened to their customers because the process is more streamlined, which in our world means time and more importantly, money,” said Doug Browning, survey manager at Walsh Construction and Archer Western, U.S.

Building on more than 20 years of experience with 3D stringless paving solutions, technological developments like the automatic leapfrog and the MC1 software platform prove that Leica Geosystems continues leading 3D solutions for the paving industry.

This innovation is available for hands-on demonstrations at  CONEXPO-CON/AGG 10-14 March 2020 in Las Vegas, United States, on the Hexagon Booth in North Hall, at stand #N-12166.
