SMT GB says it has been officially appointed as a Unicontrol distributor for the UK. The Unicontrol 3D machine control system can now be retrofitted to the majority of construction equipment products in Great Britain according to the company.

Created by Danish developers in collaboration with Scandinavian contractors, Unicontrol’s system was designed with the operator in mind and as a  platform that grows with end users through adoption of machine control technology.

The result of this collaborative development approach is what the company says is a straightforward, intuitive and user-friendly system that offers operators the ability to progress through projects with greater speed and precision.

Utilising advanced GPS and 3D modelling technology, Unicontrol’s 3D machine control system allows operators to work more independently, as the indicative system provides accurate information on required digging depths, grades and shapes for the operator to work to.

Designed to be retrofitted to machines, the system represents a retainable investment for customers, as one of the key advantages of the Unicontrol 3D machine control system over other competing systems is its versatility, as it is not tied to any one machine within a customer’s fleet and is designed to be interchangeable.

Commenting on SMT GB’s appointment as the largest Unicontrol distributor in Great Britain, product manager John Lawrence said: “The UK market is faced with many challenges. Making a cost-effective, easy-to-use 3D machine control system available to construction companies will alleviate some of that pressure.”
