3D Laser Scanning

 The effective way to capture as built layout of your plant

inisys Africa (Pty) Ltd provides 3D High Definition Laser Scanning of your plant or facility. This is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of physical objects using a line of laser light. 3D laser scanners create “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object. In other words, 3D laser scanning is a way to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.3D laser scanners measure fine details and capture free-form shapes to quickly generate highly accurate point clouds.

3D laser scanning is ideally suited to the measurement and inspection of contoured surfaces and complex geometries which require massive amounts of data for their accurate description and where doing this is impractical with the use of traditional measurement methods or a touch probe.

With Laser Scanning inisys Africa can provide cost effective as-built data capture of your plant and using Leica® and Autodesk® software products we can create digital representations of all your assets. This information can be managed in your asset management system or we can provide Autodesk Vault® to control and manage short term project performances of engineering contractors (EPC´s) or long term performance of your own operations.

This technique along with the use of the latest range of engineering 3D CAD software packages is used to provides accurate 3D information of piping, structure, equipment  and other related items which can be used for fabrication, design and construction decisions. This, with a vast amount of experience in the use of this technology, will result in reduced costs, optimized schedules, increased quality and improved safety, with construction rework reduced by up to 80%.

Ground Penetrating Radar

Ground Penetrating Radar, or GPR, is a geophysical method of mapping out subsurface terrains. It is a nondestructive method which detects reflected signals from subsurface structures by emitting high-frequency radio waves. GPR can be used in a variety of media, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and structures. It can detect objects, changes in material, and voids and cracks.

  • Determine concrete slab thickness as well as rebar depth and spacing.
  • Determine the source of an underground leak.
  • Detect underground pipes or conduits without having to dig below the surface.
  • Delineation of underground wires, cables, fiber optics et cetera.
  • Locate underground Manholes or Water Boxes.
  • Detect underground voids, water infiltration or underground cavities and cracking.
  • Determine Slab, Asphalt Layer or Wall Thickness.
  • Locate underground objects such as buried drums, landfill or rubble limits.
