Maintenance: measurements for on-site integration

France has many industrial installations which date back 30 years or more.
The maintenance in service of these plants (petrochemical production facilities, port operations, print works, thermal and hydroelectric power plants, etc.) is complicated by the lack of "as-built" plans which incorporate the most recent works completed.
Laser scanning provides an immediate solution to the major proportion of these obstacles: in just a few hours, Urbica can capture and compile a 3D model which is faithful to the actual conditions on site. It's all there!

  • Minimal operating costs
  • Generation of a 3D model of the existing structure in the required file format
    (PDMS, PDS, Autocad, Microstation, 3DSMax, etc.)
  • Expertise in 3D dimensional scanning
  • 3D or 2D data files, obtained by the same survey campaign
  • High precision of scans
  • Speed of response
  • Exhaustive scans
  • Results suitable for processing in all CAD tools
  • Rapid results, often available for processing within days of on-site scanning
  • Operations with no interruption of production
  • Tailored service
  • Speed of capture of on-site measurements
