From as-builts to intelligent models

FARO’s laser scanning solutions provide engineers from multiple industries to efficiently capture, manage and analyze real world conditions to better plan, verify and maintain construction sites and industrial facilities.

FARO engineering solutions

Capture & Analyze Site Conditions

Capture, analyze and interpret the existing conditions of complex geometries such as industrial facilities or structural sites in a short time frame. FARO Laser Scanners and engineering software solutions supports efficient documentation and modeling of site conditions which includes, piping, steel and building or infrastructure elements.

Verify Structural Integrity via Engineering

Verify Structural Integrity

Utilizing FARO laser scanning allows engineers to accurately survey, estimate and determine the current and future lifespan and integrity of structures such as bridges, industrial facilities, petroleum tanks and towers. By comparing and updating the 3D CAD models to existing conditions, repairs and retrofits are executed more effectively while minimizing downtime.

3D Model and Design Engineering

3D Model and Design

Precise and complete capturing of existing conditions is required as a foundation for engineering design or retrofit tasks. FARO laser scanning solutions allow engineers to respect existing conditions for both tasks. FARO provides suitable documentation packages to determine tie-in points, centerlines or collisions for industrial maintenance and planning or to extract building and MEP components.
