Laser scanning of existing metal structures for revisions or modifications

For renovation or modification projects, it is possible to scan the elements before engineering design.

  • Using laser scanning you can capture all the measurements you need in 3D and save many hours understanding the actual site conditions, and avoid having to go back for additional measurements that weren't done the first time...

  • Laser scanning can save days of inspection, using elevators or climbing into hard-to-reach areas, improving health and safety.

  • It is possible to compare the scanned data with existing drawings and understand any discrepancies before starting manufacturing design, as well as identify the locations of existing interference or service facility locations; avoiding costly delays or rework in the assembly stage.

  • Export the point cloud to the modeling tool, documenting any problems or errors precisely to help in coordination with the different interested and involved parties of the project.

Quality control in production

Laser scanning is an optimal way to carry out quality control of workshop work

  • After welding, compare the constructed assembly with the model.

  • Ensure assembly fits when delivered to site – eliminating rework and additional costs.

  • Carry out inspections in the workshop so that errors can be rectified as soon as possible.

  • You can identify out-of-tolerance items with an accuracy of 3 mm and generate data and reports to demonstrate quality and work compliance.

Quality control in the installation

During the installation

  • Laser scanning during assembly to accurately track and document progress.

  • Identify any deviations or errors early on to establish the impact on subsequent installation.

After installation

  • Perform a post-installation analysis to verify that the work was performed within tolerance. You can then import the installed as-built data back into BIM.

  • Scanned data can be included as a deliverable for the client/project to help coordination in subsequent operations.
