DipMate® Pro – Backhoe dredgingmonitoring & control system

Monitoring and control system for precision backhoe dredging


Monitoring and control for maximum backhoe dredging performance in the toughest of environments

The DipMate® Pro is an ultra-reliable backhoe dredging monitoring and control system for accurate visualization, registration, and controlling of backhoe dredging operations. With 60+ DipMate systems active in the field, DipMate® is the backhoe dredging monitoring and control system of choice for operators around the world. An achievement that is largely attributed to 16 years of field feedback processed in an ever-more capable system. As a result, the system contains a well-developed and operator-friendly MMI, including all available functionalities for effective backhoe dredger monitoring.

The DipMate Pro, designed to endure the harshest of dredging operations, can be executed with a number of operator assistance functionalities. These enable more efficient (e.g. bucket angle and boom control) and safer (e.g. cylinder and collision protection module) dredging operations. Thanks to the optional operator assistance functionalities, operators of all skill levels are now more accurate and more productive than ever before.
