What is the difference between using traditional methods of measurement and laser scanning projects expansion of industrial plants? Over the years, thousands of industrial building studies have been conducted using different measurement techniques.
To carry out the survey of a complex architecture, such as the one we can find in industrial plants in the agri-food, pharmaceutical, logistics or chemical sectors, among others, methods such as direct surveying with a portable laser distance meter, or the traditional topographic measurement, have been used. But today the application of laser scanning offers very competitive advantages, especially in projects for the transfer, expansion, adaptation or improvement of industrial plants.
When surveying facilities with laser scanning technology, our client will not have to worry about the measurement details, since with it we are capable of generating, through different positions, scans made up of millions of points that represent hundreds of thousands of measurements, allowing us to obtain a raw representation of the plant. This work is complemented by a photographic scan to obtain the respective spherical images, through the scanner’s HDR camera with a color resolution of up to 165 megapixels.
After collecting the referred data, INGESER carries out the processing and recording of the information obtained from the different scans, for the creation of a digital model of medium or high detail (to be specified by the client), composed of a cloud of points .
With the use of laser scanning technology, a number of advantages are obtained that make a considerable difference with respect to traditional measurement techniques. These are:
- Time spent capturing data is up to 10 times faster, ensuring a smooth plant expansion project.
- 3D laser scanning ensures the collection of all the necessary information, which avoids the delay caused by returning to the facilities for new measurements.
- It is not necessary to come into contact with the measured object, which in some cases is not possible or desirable.
- Greater precision in measurement.
- Use fewer resources in the data acquisition phase. From there, the transfer costs decrease.
- Ability to represent the detected space in an innovative way that is very close to reality, an aspect that cannot be achieved with 2D representation.
Having the support of an engineering firm such as INGESER , capable of handling all phases of a project (from the initial idea to the total execution of the investment), guarantees a complete and comprehensive quality service.
