3D scanner measurements with FARO Focus S 70 scanner

All project partners(from owners through design professionals and general contractors to everyone) can access the same reliable data for close collaboration, further reducing the risk of errors and rework. Our demanding service is the supply of data based on 3D technology measurements, which can provide real-time data, not only in the field of industrial concrete floor construction.

Flatness check with cutting-edge technology

Allen Face Europe is a company that provides services for testing and measuring the flatness of industrial floors. One of their main services is the Flatness check service, which is carried out using the Faro S70 laser scanner.

The Faro S70 laser scanner is a high-precision instrument that can scan large areas quickly and accurately. It uses laser technology to measure the flatness of industrial floors and creates a 3D model of the surface. This model can then be used to analyze the surface for any unevenness, bumps, or dips. Here is an example of how the Faro Flatness Check visualizes the industrial floor in the form of a heatmap:

The Flatness check service provided by Allen Face Europe is important for several reasons:

  • First, it helps to ensure the safety of workers who use the industrial floors. If the floors are not flat, there is a risk of accidents and injuries. Uneven floors can also cause problems for machinery and equipment, leading to increased maintenance costs and downtime.
  • Second, the Flatness check service can help to improve the efficiency of operations in industrial settings. A flat floor is essential for the smooth operation of automated machinery and equipment. If the floor is uneven, it can cause problems with the movement of materials and products, leading to delays and inefficiencies.
  • Third, the Flatness check service can help to reduce costs in the long term. By identifying and correcting problems with the flatness of industrial floors, companies can avoid costly repairs and maintenance in the future. It can also help to extend the lifespan of machinery and equipment by ensuring that they are operating on a flat surface.

Faro Flatness Check Demo

Faro’s Flatness Check program uses augmented reality (AR) to project the floor’s topography onto the floor as a heat map, thereby quickly visualizing a significant characteristic of industrial concrete floors, namely horizontality.

The main advantage of the technology is that it quickly points out defects in the floor so that it can be corrected immediately. When used correctly, it provides both a time- and cost-effective solution for achieving a high-quality industrial concrete floor.

This technology is suitable for facilitating on-site QC, supports quality control and construction work, and can provide immediate data and recording. The materials below try to show the operation of the program and its reliability in a few pictures.

Implementing AR technology in construction

With the help of the Faro S70 laser scanner’s newest feature, we can also check the floor’s flatness in real time, with the help of AR technology.

Meaning that we can visualize and point out spots on the industrial floor that would make it uneven while it’s still in wet state, making it possible to correct it before the concrete turned dry! Here is an example of how it works in practice:

Possible applications of flatness check and the Faro laser scanner

The Faro S70 laser scanner has many other applications in various industries. Here are a few examples:

  • Flooring contractors: The Faro S70 laser scanner can be used to measure and assess the flatness and levelness of concrete floors. This is important for ensuring that the floors are suitable for the installation of any warehouse equipment, whether traditional (forklifts and shelves), or modern, such as automated and robotized systems.
  • Roofing contractors: The laser scanner is useful to create accurate measurements of a roof’s surface area and slope. This can be useful for estimating material and labor costs for roofing projects.
  • Plumbing contractors: The Faro S70 can be of use to create precise measurements of pipes and plumbing systems. This can help to identify any issues or leaks in the system and facilitate repairs.
  • Construction companies: The laser scanner is useful to create detailed 3D models of buildings and structures, allowing for accurate measurements and planning of construction projects.
  • Manufacturing companies: The Faro S70 laser scanner can be implemented to create 3D models of components and products, allowing for quality control and inspection.

The Faro S70 laser scanner is useful for workflow management because it allows for accurate and efficient data collection. This data can then be used to inform decisions and optimize processes. For example, in construction projects, the data collected by the Faro S70 laser scanner can be used to identify potential issues early on, allowing for adjustments to be made before construction is complete.

This can help to prevent costly delays and errors. In manufacturing settings, the data collected by the Faro S70 laser scanner can be used to identify areas for improvement and optimize production processes. Overall, the Faro S70 laser scanner can help companies to streamline their operations and improve their efficiency.

In conclusion, the Flatness check service provided by Allen Face Europe with the help of the Faro S70 laser scanner is an important service for any company that operates in an industrial setting.

It helps to:

  • Ensure the safety of workers
  • Improve operational efficiency
  • Reduce costs over the long term

Overall, the Flatness check service minimizes costs in the long and short term. By identifying and correcting problems in real time regarding the flatness of the industrial concrete floors, businesses can avoid extra costs due to maintenance and not productive operations. Our service can also contribute to extending the lifespan of warehouse equipment by providing and guaranteeing a flat surface that was required by that certain technology.

If your business can draw any advantage from flatness check or other useful implementations of the Faro S70 laser scanner, don’t hesitate to contact the experts at Allen Face Europe!

Faro Focus laser scanner

What can we achieve with 3D laser scanning technology?

data drove accuracy in management and on the field of QA & QC

“Remote control” management in the areas of construction and certification

avoiding costly errors

ensure that the final handover documentation meets today’s rigorous accuracy

with less effort for better results

“that’s it!” experience in just a few minutes.

In which areas do we offer our 3D laser scanning measurement technology?

For industrial concrete floors:

rapid determination of surface flatness/levelness accuracy, identify of floor surface characteristics by Heat-map
for fresh concrete surface inspection in-situ, “Cut & Fill” analysis
Measurements and evaluations according to standards ASTM 1155, DIN 18202, TR 34,

In other construction areas:

data service for checking
ensuring that the final structure fits design intent, minimizing the risk of deformations and other problems
detection of inappropriate locations or missing structures (walls, columns, beams, pipes, etc.)
accurate and fast on-site measurements
assure compliance with standards (beam deflections, wall verticality, “Cut & Fill” analysis, tank volume, and deformation test. monitoring of adjacent structures

For flatwork subcontractors/installers can bring good money:

can avoid most of the scraps, can save the cost of reworks

Possibility of immediate targeted intervention (e.g., cutting hills in floor construction, filling in dents as long as the concrete is fresh and workable)

when corrective grinding needed a larger area, we know where and how much to grind off the surface of the concrete floor
