Trimble and ABI GmbH offer Trimble Ready option for piling and drilling rigs

WESTMINSTER, Col.and NIEDERNBERG, Germany, October 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) and ABI Maschinenfabrik und Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH today announced the introduction of a Trimble Ready® factory option for new ABI MOBILRAM and DELMAG drilling systems. ABI piling and drilling machines shipped from the factory will be ready for installation of the Trimble® Groundworks Machine Control System, which can significantly reduce the cost and complexity of installation for the contractor.

When an ABI MOBILRAM or DELMAG drilling system is purchased, the option to install a Trimble Groundworks basic kit is now available. This basic kit provides mounting hardware, brackets and an integrated wiring harness allowing for a more seamless installation of Trimble Groundworks.

“Trimble enables our customers to map the entire construction process, from planning to quality management. On construction sites, for example, the pile grid does not need to be measured on site “, said Tobias Schmidt, head of electrical technical control at ABI. “A significant advantage of the Trimble Ready solution is the direct communication with the ABI control system, so that the sensor technology available on the machines can be integrated. The necessary mounting options on the machine are already prepared. This considerably reduces the costs necessary to equip a Trimble system.”

“Trimble and ABI are committed to providing innovative solutions for drilling and piling operations,” said Kevin Garcia, Managing Director, Trimble Civil Construction. “Trimble Groundworks technology on ABI foundation machines can deliver exceptional quality while increasing productivity and keeping our customers safe in the field. Improving the efficiency of the drilling and piling workflow is always the goal of both companies.”

Trimble Groundworks is a reliable, streamlined machine control solution that enables contractors to perform drilling and sinking operations quickly, safely and accurately. Trimble Groundworks is part of the Trimble Connected Site® solutions portfolio which offers a high level of workflow and process integration from the design phase to the finished project. Integrating Trimble software in the office and Trimble Groundworks in the field can increase the efficiency and productivity of drilling and piling operations, wirelessly synchronizing data to reduce site visits and provide a single source of truth .

Local support

SITECH® dealers, Trimble’s global distribution network, provide installation services, personalized training and local technical support for Trimble Groundworks installed on ABI drilling and piling machines. SITECH dealers know how to apply Trimble Connected Site® solutions to effectively improve productivity on and off the machine.


The Trimble Ready option for ABI MOBILRAM systems and DELMAG drills will be available in November 2022.
