Hemisphere GNSS, Inc. has expanded features for its GradeMetrix excavator solution. Hemisphere has added support for knuckle boom and swing boom excavators as part of their GradeMetrix 3D Excavator solution.

"Hemisphere recognizes that machine control technology for compact excavators has been an underserved audience globally," states Miles Ware, vice president of Marketing. "Based on direct feedback from our global machine control partners, and endless hours of testing, we are excited to introduce these options that will further enhance the available ROI for our customers."

"Hemisphere's commitment to globally expand the access to machine control technology continues to be a key component of our growth strategy," said Farlin Halsey, president and CEO of Hemisphere GNSS. "Our strategy to combine best-in-class GNSS technology, with modern, efficient, and intuitive features, further advances our efforts to make machine control technology available to the global construction community, including key customers like Iwasaki."

Hemisphere will make knuckle boom and swing boom options available in several of its new GradeMetrix excavator kits. Existing GradeMetrix excavator customers will have an option to add this feature to their current systems via an additional cable and sensor package available from their authorized GradeMetrix dealer.
