Safely obtaining accurate measurements and features of industrial plants for design and construction projects can be challenging. 3D laser scanning helps reduce risks and provides 3D visualization for an improved design process.
Elyria, Ohio (PRWEB) October 16, 2014
KS Associates, Inc., a civil engineering and surveying firm located in Elyria, Ohio, will be among the presenting companies at the Cleveland Engineering Society (CES) Annual Industrial & Manufacturing Conference and Tradeshow. The one-day conference takes place on Thursday, October 30, 2014, at Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Mark A. Yeager, P.S., KS Associates’ Director of Surveying Services, will lead an informative breakout session entitled, “Unlocking the Power of 3D Laser Scanning in Manufacturing and Industrial Applications.”
3D laser scanning has expanded the role of the Land Surveyor into new applications, including the design, construction, and operation of industrial plants. KS Associates’ presentation will explain how 3D laser scanning and LiDAR technology work, and will address the various applications for this technology. The presentation will focus on how scanning can aid in the creation of accurate plans of existing facilities. The session will include a live demonstration of 3D modeling and 3D visualization of existing manufacturing facilities and operations.
According to Yeager, “Designing improvements to existing manufacturing and industrial facilities can be challenging. Engineering plans are often outdated or non-existent. Safely obtaining accurate measurements and plant features, such as process piping, equipment and structural elements, can be difficult. KS Associates’ presentation will demonstrate how 3D laser scanning is an excellent tool to accomplish industrial plant data acquisition and to reduce risks.”
