On 26/6/2018, Luyckx and 3D-Consult founded the joint venture ULTIMATED. It bundles the knowledge of two established industry experts: Luyckx, a specialist in the distribution and servicing of machines, and 3D-consult, an expert in land surveying and 3D machine control.
Ultimated is the first one-stop shop to offer tailored guidance and advice on position fixing to companies in (road) construction, earthmoving and infrastructure.
Companies involved in earthmoving, dredging or infrastructure activities often call on ‘traditional’ methods to direct their digging machines. There are better approaches. Sam van Campenhout, General Director of Ultimated: ‘With machine control, you no longer need to manually mark out your measurements and levels. So, you save time and money. And you’re guaranteed more accuracy and safety.’
Luyckx is one of the most important distributors of construction machines from reliable names such as Hitachi and Kubota. Jos Luyckx, delegated director: ‘We have already worked together successfully with 3D-Consult on several occasions. They have a lot of practical experience with machine control (with Topcon systems, among others) and also with land surveying and drones. Their knowledge and service perfectly supplement our range—the ultimate reason to join forces and offer our clients greater value.’
Bram van Campenhout and Wim Cools are in the lead at 3D-Consult. The land surveying experts specialise in machine control, commissioning, training, and so on. Bram van Campenhout: ‘Clients can turn to Ultimated for advice, renting, purchasing and installation of 2D and 3D machine-control and land-surveying devices. And for the conversion of plans and volume measurements with drones. We support companies with the implementation of advanced techniques to encourage optimum use, so that they can genuinely enjoy the benefits.’
3D machine control is the future of the sector. It accelerates and simplifies the work of machinists, cuts down the number of times they need to move or be displaced, reduces the digging movements and increases the returns from the machines. Subcontractors who do not yet offer these modern techniques are being overlooked for these assignments more and more frequently. Ultimated offers a solution: their services make tomorrow’s technology available to all companies today. With the rental options, it’s not even necessary to make a large investment.
