3D laser scanning has revolutionised the way we record accident data. The three-dimensional images offer superb advantages for a whole host of applications.
- Recording vehicle data
Three-dimensional images of damaged vehicles allows us to determine the collision angle more accurately, measure deformations more precisely and therefore calculate the damage energy more exactly.
- Scanning accident sites
Scanning makes it possible to obtain a more reliable and highly accurate record of the accident site without interference from traffic. This keeps the time required for measuring at the site to a minimum, with data then being processed back at the office.
- Deformation comparison
By measuring objects before and after strain or wear and then comparing the data, we can ensure an accurate comparison of the deformation.
- Reverse engineering
With reverse engineering, we scan an object and create a polygon model from the point cloud. This model is then converted into a 3D CAD model which can be modified and processed on a computer.
- Other applications
3D laser scanning is suitable for other applications in mechanical engineering, plant engineering, architecture and civil engineering. The scope and precision it offers are enough to meet the majority of customer requirements.
