Best known for its GPS solutions, Trimble is a California company that designs and manufactures positioning equipment. Laser rangefinders, unmanned aerial vehicles, inertial navigation systems, GPS receivers and software tools are all produced by the company. Founded in 1978, it has a strong focus on software design, over 1,200 patents and is responsible for the creation and production of the modelling program SketchUp by Google.

Trimble Equipment for Industrial Surveying

Trimble industrial surveying equipment offers precise equipment for on the job work. Laser levels offer accurate data delivery, encased in hardwearing and durable plastic for survival in rugged conditions, such as wet weather and building sites. Automatic levels, such as the Precision AL24A 24x Automatic Level Kit, allow for exact measurements in tasks that require elevation control and alignment like landscaping, excavations, area levelling and general building and construction. There are laser levels designed for pipes, which are ideal for drain laying and positioning.

Trimble GPS Receivers

On of the leaders in the world of GPS units, Trimble's equipment is designed for in-field use. The Trimble TDC 100 combines the benefits of a smartphone with all the benefits of Trimble GNSS technology in one rugged, lightweight package. It's designed for easy use in a variety of fields including public works, environmental management and utilities. It's available with 4G functioning ability, 16 GB flash memory and a 13MP rear camera. If more storage is required, a MicroSD card can be inserted. Its large 5.3-inch display is bright so that you can read and record results clearly, no matter the time of day or the conditions.

Trimble Software

Producer of software to track, record and manage performance, Trimble has a number of applications for different areas. The most well-known is SketchUp, a software modelling system that's easy enough for even the novice to use. It allows you to draw simple lines, and push, pull and rotate them into 3D shapes. Trimble also produces weighload programs with a 3 per cent margin of error. This enables excavation processes to be accurately recorded load by load and bucket by bucket, allowing efficient operation tracking.
