Improve the management of your installations thanks to the Reality capture and the points

Industrial maintenance and installation management require visibility. Ancient installations, in particular, have trouble centralizing information.

Documentation on machines, piping, electrical equipment and past renovations is often stored on dislocated pieces of paper. Sometimes this information is only stored in the memory of some experienced employees. The lack of accessibility of the data can be nightmare for planning and maintenance teams.

point clouds, 3D models and laser readings are a simple way to capture, store And to view detailed 3D information on an environment. They are now proactively used in construction, renovation and maintenance projects. If however you still have not acquired a 3D laser scanner, ATIS invites you to orient yourself towards the Slam mobile laser scanners and more particularly The laser scanner PX-80 distributed by the company Cydis .

3D laser digitization is the key for detailed capture and storage

The 3D laser statement of points clouds can allow you to obtain a detailed view of your assets which will serve as the basis for the 3D modeling phase "such as built". This allows older installation managers to model digital models comparable to those of modern installation managers with access to BIM (Building Information Modeling) data.

These models can be easily updated during renovations. The information can be added directly to the models, often using the same software necessary to view it. If the machines are replaced, the areas can be isolated, reanalyzed and updated in the central database.

3D models are easy to use, intuitive and provide an excellent platform for storage and the visualization of detailed information on the machines. Model numbers, installation data, current operational costs, maintenance cycles information can all be easily included and visualized. 3D modeling offers installation managers an ideal point of view from which they can view their responsibilities in their facilities and obtain specific details.

3D models help maintenance teams

The accessibility of information provided by 3D models improves long -term management and helps in the event of a crisis. Managers can analyze their installation in 3D models and filter the information presented to reflect certain categories of machines or infrastructure. If there is an electrical defect, for example, a manager can only examine electrical capabilities in this area and use this model to direct the maintenance teams. Obstacles or dangers, such as water pipes, can be identified and relayed to teams on the ground so that everyone has prior knowledge of the environment they will travel.

Point cloud data can serve advanced predictive maintenance technologies

The use of a 3D model of its installation allows the centralized storage of maintenance maintenance . This facilitates the work of full capacity machines. In addition, this information can be associated with other technologies to allow predictive maintenance through aerial sound analysis, thermal video analysis or X -ray cameras.

Thermal analyzes and radiologicals are often actively undertaken. 3D models provide the information necessary to direct these actions, in the same way that this information can inform the maintenance teams.

aerial noise analysis, also known as the surveillance of the Acoustic state, is a passive technology that assesses the health of machines by constantly monitoring the sounds they produce. Programs can detect tiny frequency variations caused by screw loosening or deterioration of gears - allowing managers to be alerted before problems arise.

This approach has the potential to basically change the way industrial maintenance is undertaken. The abolition of the need to actively monitor the machines makes it possible to extend maintenance cycles as long as possible, while avoiding stops. The buffer periods are no longer necessary to avoid a defect and the machines can operate at full capacity longer, which allows factories to make the most of their investments.

However, the ability to take advantage of This type of technology requires a digital diagram of your environment. Sound analysis programs should know what they listen to. Managers also need support on which defect information can be relayed. The coupling of these two technologies makes it possible to provide predictive maintenance analysis data in the smallest detail, allowing teams to take immediate and precise measures.


3D modeling based on Point clouds offer visibility and clarity to installation managers and allows predictive maintenance   3D models are a powerful tool for storing and providing specific information. This is exactly what installation managers need to maintain their facilities and create a safe work environment. This information can be associated with predictive maintenance techniques to further improve the quality control of the installations and improve productivity.  

the possibility of scaning a factory to then create a 3D installation model has been Made possible by lower costs that occurred as the market has matured. The progress of the vector spherical alignments of the clouds of adjacent points using automatic learning has automated the "recording" and reduces the treatment time by 40% to 90%. This allowed the managers of installations to introduce themselves at an affordable price in the modern world by creating a design model "such as built" and to give themselves the visibility they need to carry out their maintenance operation with efficiency.
