H & K Engineering & the 5006EX, Z+F LaserControl

This month we will be shinning the light on H & K Engineering.  H & K Engineering is an engineering company that specializes in various services such as: Technology Enablers, Detailed Engineering Services, Full Service EPCm Capabilites, and of course, Laser Scanning and Model Integration.  H & K Engineering is located in Baton Rouge, LA. For more information and service inquiries check out their website www.hkengr.net .
” Z+F makes the best scanners in world and I have tried all others. They are also the only manufacturer that makes an explosion proof scanner.  The scanner operates and function just as ours. When we have to scan in the types of areas with strict classifications, we need to consider these factors in our estimate. The scanner comes with 3 batteries and a charger that will charge 2 at a time. It takes 3 hours to fully charge a battery. Our next challenge is registration with minimal survey.  Z+F has new registration features in LaserControl (scantra plane to plane registration) that we will be learning and using for post processing. From the demonstrations that I have seen of the software, this should be a new way of doing work for us. ” Dale Wilkins, H & K Engineering

Certified for Explosive Environments, Robust, reliable: the Z+F IMAGER 5006EX

 

“Z+F makes the best scanners in the world and I have tried all others. They are also the only manufacturer that makes an explosion proof scanner.” – Dale Wilkins H & K Engineering

 

Based on the high quality Z+F IMAGER® 5006i, Zoller+Fröhlich GmbH and DMT GmbH &Co. KG have developed the world’s first ATEX approved 3D laser scanner.  The scanner can be used in hazardous environments such as mining and industrial applications where intrinsic safety is of the highest priority. 
The IMAGER 5006EX is now available in the U.S. for immediate rental.  For more information please contact info@zf-usa.com.

PROFILER 9012 is Now Available in the United States!

The PROFILER 9012 is based on the IMAGER 5010 and is the fastest 2D profiling laser measurement system in the world.

With a scan rate of >1 million points per second and maximum scan speed of 200 profiles per sec.; the PROFILER9012  is capable of scanning very short distances between profiles at the fastest of speeds. At the highest point density even the smallest objects can be registered and processed by the software.

Since the new laser measurement system is classified as laser class 1 instrument, the scanner can be used in urban environments without restriction.  A hardware-assisted pixel-by-pixel synchronization, already proven in previous models, makes it possible to process external signals to determine the position of the scan data.

Using industrial connections, GPS, displacement sensors and counters can be attached. The external timing pulses are directly fed into the scan data stream.  Synchronization with a pulse from the scanner can also be managed using one of the connections.  The new 1 Gbit Ethernet interface allows the scan data to be transmitted online to an external PC if a real-time evaluation or visualization of the data is required.
