3D laser scanning technology is used to measure, model and map complex piping structures found in manufacturing facilities and chemical plants. The process measures individual data points in 3D (up to 1M pts/sec) and then joins the points together into photo-realistic Point Clouds. By creating a visual database, the client can interact with the measurement data by comparing to CAD drawings or conceptual designs from their desktop reducing the need for multiple site visits and improving overall project coordination.

No drawings … no problem. Laser scanning technology enabled Falk PLI to gather necessary measurements from the ground quickly and accurately. From the field measurements, our engineers provided reverse engineering of the piping structure by: documenting existing pipe conditions, providing 2D drawings for fabrication, defining critical path to avoid interference, and as-built the flange bolt patterns to ensure first-time-fit.
