Industrial Plant Maintenance and Design
DEMAG Nickel Furnaces-New Caledonia
Client: BECA & SLN
Project Description: A project in New Caledonia carrying out laser scan survey of furnaces and large industrial building, working at night and weekends to insure production was not affected.
Deliverables: Returned to New Zealand with over one trillion survey points to be processed into laser scan data base for off shore conversion into "As Built" 3D CAD model.
Cableway Transfer Stations -New Caledonia
Project Description: 80 year old cable way transfer system required "As Built" mechanical drawings to facilitate modifications. Laser Scan Survey was carried out and a 3D Model was produced. Cableway was very remote and access limited.
Deliverables: Accurate 3D CAD model in the clients CAD system, Leica TruView publication,3D Point cloud data base and 2D Drawings.
Container Crane Alignment Scanning
Client: Port of Auckland
The Port of Auckland operates five large shipping container cranes. Until now alignment monitoring of the main bogie rails has not been able to be carried out in an efficient manner.
NOVAMECH was asked to obtain positional data of the rails for the length of the crane boom.
By positioning our Leica HDS 3000 scanner at both ends of the boom we were able to see the rails (have line of sight on these). This enabled us to scan the inner edge of the rail.
Deliverables: From this data we produced drawings of each crane with tabulated positional data for The Port of Auckland to then use if any adjustments or maintenance was required.
NOVAMECH successfully carried this out on all five cranes over a four month period. The major challenge was the changeable weather that Auckland experiences.
