We rebuild the geometry of elements and infrastructures using 3D laser scanner technology
3D Laser capture in shipbuilding
The use of laser scanning in shipbuilding is a technology that helps shipyards deliver projects faster, more efficiently and with less risk. We are a company that specializes in quickly and accurately capturing current conditions, using the latest proven technologies in laser scanning and precision elevation, to achieve best practices for boat repair and new construction.
Scanphase collaborates with naval companies and field specialists and offers high quality services for shipping companies to in all Spanish ports (Valencia, Algeciras, Barcelona, Las Palmas, Bilbao, Santander ...), Europe and north Africa.
The key to competitive utilization lies in being able to capture the vessel "in operation" in 3D quickly, accurately and inexpensively. The early availability of detailed and accurate 3D studies from laser scan data enables shipyards to move forward with project planning, renovation design and procurement of materials ready to start work as soon as the ship arrives at the dock repair. Using the scan helps to shorten downtime.
Capture operating conditions. Because laser scanning is relatively quick and non-intrusive, it is often not necessary to wait until the boat is in dry dock to perform the survey. It can be carried out long before scheduled repair.
Combining reality and design. Reconditioning work can begin immediately and be done quickly, with little or no need for rework, as new items will have been accurately verified against the ship "as is".
Reverse engineering. Pipes or structural elements captured in the point cloud can be interactively identified and converted into intelligent 3D model objects with associated attributes.
Design. The designer can use laser capture to complete the design by integrating existing and new objects, running collision detections, and creating drawings and other production facilities.
3D Scanning Services
Scanphase uses an advanced laser 3D Scanner for generating the As Built data. Our 3D scanners provides our Naval architects and Structural engineers with an efficient tool for rapid, seamless and precise documentation of the current status of any construction – offshore or onshore, ships, rigs, platforms, terminals, piping systems and structures of every kind. Laser Scanning is ideal for designing, ship building, restructuring and extending technical and industrial plants such as refineries, power plants and production facilities.
3D scanning Measurement
The Laser Scanner can capture complex and surfaces as a dense 3D scan data. This allows performing non-contact, 3D inspections with ease. Non-contact 3D scanning can digitize features such as flush and gap that are difficult to inspect with contact methods. Laser scanning for 3D documentation can be a faster method produces a more comprehensive report.
Alignment checks of derricks and tower can be completed with ease using 3D scanning. The high accuracy ensures that the misalignment of even a 1 -2 grads over a length of 10m can be identified.
Reverse Engineering and Inspection
Laser scanning is ideally suited for reverse engineering. 3D Laser Scanning can be effectively used to map and subsequently deliver As-Built, Site verified As‐Built, Intelligent 3D Models, As-Built Piping, Equipment Layouts, Accurate Tag Database, As‐Built Inspection Isometrics, better Asset Management for maintenance and future expansions.
Post fabrication and pre fabrication Quality control
Precise 3D scanning and laser scanning inspection of large and complex component such as rotor blades, turbines, ship propellers, etc. has been carried out in and around EU. Complete 3D documentation of the manufacturing status of machine components can be done. Prefabrication reduces construction times. The 3D scanning ensures accurate dimensioning and hence ensures that no reworks occur for the fabrication. Avoidance of downtime is the most critical aspect to install any equipment as a retrofit. Hence it is important that the Rig/Vessel/Plant would be able to stay in operation and while the installation is progressing. To accomplish this, utilization of high accuracy 3D Scanners, in order to scan the available space in detail, and perform clash checks.
