Aprill 19, 2017 - The Leica iCON rig solution for drilling and piling machines will be directly implemented into LIPOS factory-mounted add-on kit, which includes a fixture for the easy and quick installation of hardware without the need to change the machine structure. The rig solution will now be part of the process for data recording and reporting in Liebherr deep foundation machinery.

“Combining Liebherr on-board sensor information adds a significant extra dimension for our positioning solution for drilling and piling applications,”  said Johan Arnberg, president of the Leica Geosystems Machine Control Division. “We are proud to bring added value for Liebherr customers and an easier and efficient way to manage their data on any drilling and piling construction projects.” 

Productivity in continued progress
The Leica iRD3/iRP3 solutions create a 30 per cent time and cost saving with every drilling/piling job. The systems drastically reduce the need for stakeout work. Among other features, they also offer wireless update of project files and remote support via telematics. Users can document their work as the project progresses and avoid drilling in old and failed holes. 

The Leica iCON rig solution integrated into the Liebherr control system creates ideal conditions for efficient positioning of Liebherr machines and their working tools. The LIPOS data interface combines Liebherr machine-based sensor data with state-of-the-art Leica Geosystems navigation technology guided by satellites.

“Exact positioning and precise execution of drilling and piling processes are crucial for the success of deep foundation machinery,” said Holger Streitz, managing director, Liebherr-Werk Nenzing. “With the integration of components from Leica Geosystems in Liebherr’s LIPOS® solution, drilling and piling processes are more transparent and traceable. Thus, quality assurance can be better controlled.”
