________________ The ability to navigate the tunnelling process in a highly precise way and to control it exactly is an essential prerequisite to keep the TBM on course at all times, ensuring that it reaches its planned target quickly and precisely even when large distances are driven.
For this purpose, state-of-the-art surveying technology and data management systems are used at the control cabins of Herrenknecht tunnel boring machines. This allows for the most precise steering of the TBM as well as the recording, analysis and visualization of all relevant process data – from microtunnelling machines to large-diameter TBMs.
Herrenknecht and its subsidiary VMT offer products in the field of navigation technology, production and logistics management, deformation and process monitoring as well as data management. These products can be combined to efficient, modern network solutions in order to support an optimal construction workflow and to guarantee a seamless quality assurance for every tunnel project.
