Breakfast & Learn: Plan the Work/Work the Plan – Reducing Costs by Leveraging 3D Scanning Technology in Industrial Applications @ Niagara College - Walker Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre, Room IC209
Oct 18 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am
As-built documentation is crucial to the development, planning and refurbishment of industrial sites and facilities. But the challenge for existing assets is the ability to turn decades’ worth of operational information and experience from various sources and systems into ‘applicable information’. As-built documents are often incomplete, or outdated and hence unreliable. Currency and accuracy of data is critical in design environments involving: Aging Infrastructure MEC Interference Co-ordination Brownfield Facility Refurbishment Maintenance Shut-downs Strategic Facility Planning Come hear how sophisticated data acquisition technology, such as 3D Laser Scanning, can reduce your production schedule, minimize risks and improve operational efficiency.
