Titled “Don’t Gamble with your 3D Scanning,” Exact Metrology’s June 25 tech event at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana showcased the company’s latest 3D scanning equipment. Attended by a number of local companies, particularly from the steel, oil and gas and power gen industries, the day was hosted by Exact Co-Presidetn Dean Solberg and also included presentations by business partners Leica GeoSystems and Hexagon Metrology. Several scanners were demonstrated and available for hands-on use by the attendees, including the Romer Absolute Arm, the Leica Absolute Tracker and the Leica T-Scan.

According to the company, attendees were impressed by the ease of use, speed and accuracy of the demonstrated models, with scanning capabilities of over one million points per second. Bruce Bowditch of Leica described them as “a survey total station on steroids.”

Attendees could be heard discussing their excitement and one steel industry engineer commented, “That specific type of  scanning can be applied to a lot of what we do. Pumps need to be scanned to assure proper fit. The Romer Absolute Arm is definitely quicker and more accurate. Our current process is so cumbersome; there’s just no comparison.”  After trying out the Leica Absolute Tracker, one attendee in the oil industry stated, “Speed and accuracy is what we’re after. We have a model that does about half of what this can do. A lot less field time…hoping to get one. We’re excited.”
