Topcon Positioning Systems has announced the latest evolution of the company’s road construction and resurfacing technology with the introduction of the MC-Max Asphalt Paving and MC-Max Milling solutions.

The systems offer modularity, simplified configurations and advanced feature sets to increase productivity in asphalt paving and cold milling applications for construction companies and projects of all sizes.

“Today’s municipalities are under constant pressure to maintain existing infrastructure,” said Murray Lodge, executive vice president, Topcon. “With rising maintenance costs, ever-decreasing margins, tighter specifications, and an increasing focus on meeting sustainability targets, the industry needs innovative approaches to resurface roads efficiently with smooth and long-lasting results. That is precisely what our decades-long dedication to designing new technologies for the paving industry positions us to continue to provide with our expanding intelligent paving portfolio.”

The MC-Max Asphalt Paving and MC-Max Milling systems, which are made up of GNSS receivers, total stations, displays, and other high-precision sensors, are built with the new MC-X machine control platform. This architecture provides highly customized systems and upgradeability paths to grow with a contractor’s needs.

Users can choose from entry-level 2D systems that follow a reference, such as a string or a curb, or automated solutions that track a paver or miller in 3D for drastically improved road smoothness in less time and with lower costs. Contractors can automatically pave and mill at variable depths, providing a better driving experience and meeting DOT-mandated smoothness standards. The solutions also include MC-X licensing options, providing customers with further flexibility to meet their specific project and budget requirements.
