The TUnIS systems for microtunnelling machine navigation are based on different technologies – laser, laser total station, gyro or a combination of gyro and electromagnetic sensors – but have all been developed on the TUnIS Navigation MT software platform. Switching from the basic system to one of the specialised applications is simple and straightforward: the machine operator can work with the same, familiar software interface throughout. And the hardware concept is the same, too – so the effort and costs for the conversion are low.
All TUnIS navigation systems enable precise steering and maximum breakthrough accuracy by continuously determining the position of the machine – even with complex alignments and difficult ground conditions; for long-distance and curved drives with high performance rates between control measurements.
With the TUnIS product line, VMT offers the optimal navigation solution for every project.
