Engineering better design.

PointSCAN 3D laser surveys offer a fast and effective way of recording on-site measurement date for fabrication of mechanical and structural applications.  Allowing this data to be presented visually as a 3D point cloud promotes early stage design and dramatically increases clash detection which minimises any later unforeseen costs.

There has to be a good reason to change an operational procedure or best practice.  No one would expect a change to produce a lesser result, and 3 key areas to seek project improvement are SAFETY, can it be done safer, QUALITY, can it be done better, QUICKER, can the time taken be reduced.    Any one of these categories would give good reason to change but offer all three and the question has to be “Why wouldn’t you?”

Safety

Our 3D laser scanning services benefit many different industry sectors and our commitment to site safety ensures our survey teams have the training necessary to attend your or your clients sites.

Recording measurement data from up to 330 metres the need for temporary access and working at heights is significantly reduced along with the associated risk.

Access into confined spaces and potentially hazardous areas can also be mitigated by remote operation of the laser scanner from a controlled area. Allowing all members your team virtual access to otherwise restricted areas.

Quality on-site measurement

Capturing 360 degrees of there environment with an accuracy of +-2mm so once acquired you can always refer back to the scan data instead of returning to site.

3D laser scans do not require measurements to be taken from a fixed position as the name suggests a measurement can be applied from any point in 3D space making it especially useful where line of sight is obscured.  

Lighting levels do not affect the ability to acquire scan data so the measurements can be taken in voids, chambers and unlit areas.
