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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
