Amberg Navigator – Touch and build

Amberg Navigator consists of two components: the Amberg
Tunnel software for defining the project in the office and the
Amberg Navigator Tablet software for use in the tunnel.
You can put together the optimal Amberg Navigator Tablet
software package by selecting the needed tasks from a broad
range of available options. As an alternative, these five soft-
ware packages are available to cover the most frequently-used
ƒƒGuidance Basic
ƒƒGuidance Plus
ƒƒControl Profile Basic
ƒƒControl Profile Plus
ƒƒInnerlining Basic

Operative and economic benefits for the client

ƒƒIncreased tunnelling performance through minimisation
of idle time
ƒƒThe system is quickly ready for use
ƒƒLicence fees only for the selected tasks
ƒƒReal-time scanning analysis and direct stake out of critical

Optimise tunnel construction – reduce cost and time
