3D Laser Scanning
Measurement without disruption of business
thyssenkrupp System Engineering’s 3D laser scanning is a modern imaging process for fast and accurate 3D measurement. It can be universally applied: In plant engineering for example, the laser scanner captures the manufacturing plants and their environment prior to any relocation/alteration. Our internal and external customers use the scanned data to create as-completed drawings and to plan alterations and extensions. Foundation drawings are often derived from the scanned data, which form the basis for the layout of downstream projects.
3D laser scanning offers a cost-effective alternative to conventional measuring methods. Based on the much shorter on site measurement times, for instance. Costly and time-consuming repeat measuring is redundant and replaced instead by analysis in the office.
Millions of measurement points per scan
The very high information content of the scanned data – millions of measured points per scan the evaluation and use is highly flexible. Various cross sectional views are possible for fast visualization, as well as the utilization of the point cloud as a basis for 3D modeling. There is also no need to fully define the scope of the survey prior to the recording, since the evaluation is performed in the office.
The project team has virtual access to the plant via Web Share to carry out direct measurements. This enables location-spanning and efficient cooperation. The laser scanner also facilitates surveys of complex and hard-to-access plants – without interrupting operations.
We rely on FARO, a global leader in computer-assisted measuring systems. For final visualization we may use various software solutions, depending on requirements, or develop customized representations in cooperation with our customers.
