3D scan for brownfield projects
Conversion, restructuration, rehabilitation: secure your project!
As part of your equipment replacement or packaging line modification or re-engineering projects, our ‘Scanner 3D’ service range allows you to represent the environment of all or part of your production site.
The objective is clearly to work on and validate a project to integrate new equipment or to make a major modification on an existing production line, ensuring that the existing and future volumes work alongside each other, well ahead of installation of the equipment on site.
‘Scanner 3D’ is a digitalisation system using laser technology.
- Installation of the scanner on site to perform a precise 3D survey of surfaces and objects
- Consolidation of the point cloud
- Modelling of common parts
- Modification/deletion of existing elements
- Integration of new equipment from the 3D design drawing of the machine
- Half the time of a manual inventory
- Highly precise inventory, to the nearest 2 mm
- Detection of potential incompatibilities and blocking points
- 100% guaranteed solution thanks to the reliability of the data collected
- View a 3D hyper-realistic 360° representation of your future installation
