Security is a prime concern in any mine, whether gold mining or coal mining. A laser scanner can identify and record any cracks and fissures, compare these data to previous scans, and identify any areas of concern. This is an enormous contribution to mine safety and a safe work environment.

Ongoing 3D documentation of the mine, carried out by a FARO® Focus3D, can prevent a mine collapse, as it instantly detects any alterations in local rock strata, so that appropriate security measures can be taken well in advance. Construction work underground, such as the digging of a new coal mine, is also made easier and safer by the use of laser aided 3D documentation.

In surface mining and strip mining, used for certain types of coal and minerals, the pit also needs careful inspection. The portable FARO Focus3D can also identify specific quantities of rock and raw materials, which make it a valuable piece of modern mining equipment.

FARO 3D Laser Scanner Optimizes Erosion Inspection of High-Temperature Materials for Metallurgical and Steel Industries

Plant Engineering/Metallurgical: Hangzhou Pucheng Teddy Industrial Co., Ltd.
PUTEDY employs the FARO Focus3D X 130 scanners f or hot forging dimensional inspection of steel ladles and iron ladles, regular monitoring of any changes to the refractory materials, and to determine when material filling is necessary.The technology team has incorporated the Focus3D X 130 t o develop a long-range 3D scanning system that can carry out non-contact measurement of high-temperature objects.

Okumura Sekkei ‘Brings’ Entire Worksites Back as Point Cloud Data

Construction and Civil Engineering: Okumura Sekkei Corporation
“Construction consultants fail in their jobs when they design with no knowledge of the site’s current state,” shared Mr Okumura. “To get around this problem, we obtain scans of the entire site, including its surrounding areas, using a 3D laser scanner. With the point cloud data collected, we can then check the current status of the site in detail as we work on our designs in the office.”

MAC and Nishimatsu Construction Develop Vehicle-Mounted Scanning System with FARO Focus3D

Construction/Civil Engineering/Tunnel Drilling: MAC Co. Ltd.
Drilling precision requires us to secure the design field and suppress surplus drilling (also known as ‘over-digging’) within 50mm. With precision construction control, we can reduce material costs, labor costs, and project duration, as well as improve productivity levels.

Scientists Build High Precision 3D Model of Gomantong Caves

Research: Gomantong Caves
Having had prior experience with the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D, Prof. Buchroithner was fully aware of its capabilities. He shared, “Clearly, we needed a device that was rugged, lightweight, and capable of capturing accurate data even with low ambient lighting. My prior encounter with the Focus3D gave me full confidence that the new Focus3D X 330 would deliver the results we needed. In fact, it surpassed our expectations in several ways!”
