Simply put, drones are changing how businesses operate by reducing costs, saving time, improving safety, and providing a direct ROI.
Geo-spatial Laser Scanning
In order to create accurate digital models of products, environments and structures, we employ high defenition LIDAR scanning technology. Our Leica BLK360 is a portable laser reality capture solution that generates a full 3D representation of any space in just minutes.
By combining 3D point cloud technology with panoramic photography, the BLK360 creates a full 3D representation with precision measurements, full color rendering, and even thermal imaging. Utilising this, we are able to digitise objects and areas with precision and efficiency reducing the time taken to import models into our system.
Packaging & Delivery
Our premises offer storage of raw materials and pick up or delivery of finished products with our own transport. Packed as they come off the product line, so products remain in the best possible condition.
On site installation and on site welding is managed by our expert team of builders and fabricators.
