3D Scanning

AMM is at the head of the pack when it comes to quick and accurate modelling of machinery and fixed plant with our cutting edge 3D scanners. Our brand new fleet of Artec Scanners has been designed explicitly for use on mechanical components and fixed plants, giving them a distinct advantage over other scanners which have been designed for more civil and surveying based applications. If you require precise engineering for plant or machinery modifications, or component reverse engineering, AMM has the technology to meet your needs.

 

Our current fleet of  scanners consists of the Leo and Ray model devices. The Artec Leo is a handheld unit that boasts the fastest scanning speed on the market while still maintaining a scan point accuracy of 0.1mm. With a built in high power processor and touch screen, our technicians can read and review scan data on the go to ensure no detail is missed. The easy mobility of the Leo combined with its advanced  hybrid geometry and texture tracking allows our technicians to begin scanning with minimal to no set-up required. Additionally, the Leo has a combined digital camera system that allows all scan models to be captured with real time coloring.

Pictured in the images above is one of our recent projects which truly highlights the strengths of the Artec Leo and the value it can provide to any engineering project. In this instance AMM was approached by a client to modify the Rib Protection module of a Continuous Miner which due to its configuration was causing a pinch point hazard against the operator control station. Due to its numerous bent components and complicated geometry it would have been extremely time-consuming and inaccurate to draft the Rib Protection Module using traditional methods. However, using the Leo our technicians were able to completely scan the Module and surrounding components in 3 hours. As can be seen from the images of the processed scans above, this data allowed our engineers to quickly and accurately design a replacement component which eliminated this hazard. The ease at which the Leo allows AMM to capture data on components with complex geometry can be seen again below in the scans of a drilling head we recently took.

The Artec Ray is a device which specializes in large objects such as heavy machinery and fixed plant structures. With a range of 110m over 360° of horizontal rotation and 270° of vertical rotation at a speed of 208, 000 scan points per second second our technicians can rapidly build a full area model of any of your large equipment or facilities.

Where detail is required, the Leo and the Ray are pairable which allows us to take high detail scans of particular items or geographic locations using the Leo and then synchronize  the data to produce a comprehensive scan.
