Leica partners with SANY to expand machine control adoption
By Paige HaeffeleFebruary 15, 2022
Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, announced it will collaborate with SANY America to simplify the adoption and support of Leica Geosystems’ machine control technology on SANY excavators and motor graders.
Leica Geosystems says its “cutting-edge but easy-to-use” machine control technology enables precision while doing excavating and grading work and allows machine operators at various skill levels to increase their productivity while lessening the intensity of tasks. The goal is to help keep workers safe and result in less wear and tear on machines.
The companies launched a joint Technology Access Program whereby SANY dealers nationwide can offer customers a variety of machine control solutions through their leasing and purchasing agreements, with installation and support by certified Leica Geosystems dealers.
“This Technology Access Program will make deploying technology seamless and painless for operators,” says Troy Dahlin, vice president, heavy construction, at Leica Geosystems US/Canada.
“Local SANY dealers are now able to retrofit their machines easily with Leica Geosystems technology. This collaboration extends beyond both our companies, stretching deep into local dealer partnerships for both organizations.”
The Technology Access Program also offers SANY customers and dealers the ability to experience Leica Geosystems’ machine control technologies at the SANY Digs demo area, located in the SANY America headquarters near Atlanta, Georgia.
“Our customers and dealers want straightforward, streamlined solutions that make working with a mixed fleet easy and simple,” says Gabe Weiss, director of marketing for SANY. “This program is built on feedback from our Dealer Partner network and will provide operators with a technology option for grade control and dedicated access to the Leica Geosystems dealer support network.”
