The SafScan technology is used to creates a precise, as-built copy of any site using laser scanning equipment.
“By improving accuracy through the collection of one million data points per second, we are able to engineer projects based on a totally reliable, solid foundation of information,” said Jerry Dolly, manager of the bridge Division at Safway. “This allows us to plan, order equipment and materials, and schedule labor to improve overall job performance, safety and efficiency.”
Once the 3D coordinate system of points has been gathered, Safway’s engineers can begin planning for the job. This might include new pipe modeling for a pipe rack project or taking detailed I-beam or tank measurements so that scaffolding and platforms can be built-to-fit before any equipment arrives on the site. The company said that SafScan provides a head start that can save valuable time and money by avoiding interferences and retrofits.
