Our Leica RTC360 3D reality capture solution empowers us to document and capture areas of site, plant or machines in 3D. Improving efficiency and productivity in the field and behind the scenes through fast, accurate, and portable hardware and software. 3D laser scanning has enabled us to manage complex projects with ease and transform the way we solve problems and develop solutions.
Stage 1A customer requires a set of handrails or replacement parts to be designed and engineered for their underground machine, they either have a damaged set, no set or a set in which they wish to replicate.The first step is to visit the customers site, workshop or rebuild location to meet the customer, understand the requirements and get 3D point scans of the machine.
We take 3D point scans of the whole machine and the required handrail locations to capture accurate data of the whole scope of the project. These scans provide us with extremely accurate measurements which we use to develop designs and concept drawings for a complete set of handrails or replacement parts for approval.
Once the drawings have been approved by the customer, we can move onto developing a set of production drawings and engineering the handrail or replacement parts. Once these are complete, fabrication begins.
