Why is regular checking and calibration of rotating lasers important?

Construction sites are harsh environments that put incredible strain on rotating lasers. These instruments are not treated with a lot of care – they get dropped, knocked down or toppled over and may also become covered in dirt and concrete. In the majority of construction projects, rotating lasers face so many impacts during regular use that their accuracy can no

Why laser scanning is becoming so popular

I’ve noticed how laser scanning is reaching even more markets than it currently serves. As well as gaining greater traction in ‘traditional’ application areas such as topographic surveying, engineering & infrastructure, and process plant; terrestrial laser scanning is being rapidly adopted by a range of diverse markets, including Building Information Modelling (BIM), Digital Construction, Interior Finishing and Forensics. In addition

[Webcast] Factory Design: See the Advantages of Laser Scanning

You need to be sure the data you are using to design or reconfigure your factory is as accurate as possible. To do this, the industry is moving away from relying on potentially out-of-date CAD drawings for capturing as-built facilities. Scanning is the most easily attainable and reliable source of truth and is used in conjunction with CAD. And, scanning

ebook: 3D Laser Scanning for Manufacturing Facilities Developing the Business Case

Reduce Rework: Using 3D laser scanning to capture existing conditions in the plant makes it possible to automatically create accurate sections and elevations. Cut Costs: While conventional methods require 10 engineers with overlapping responsibilities, laser scanning can be completed with just 4 people. Retool With Confidence: Supplying service providers with accurate 3D as-builts yields more accurate cost estimates with greater accountability. Learn how

Flip It: Leica ScanStation P40 scans upside down

Cement and concrete supplier finds unique application for the Leica ScanStation P40. An above ground opening was growing, causing a safety issue on a site in Vera Cruz, Mexico. With innovative thinking, the Leica ScanStation was inverted to capture the required data. Cementos Moctezuma needed to measure and monitor the shaft radius. Secondary to this, was the need to measure
