GKS Specialized Marine 3D Scanning

Friday, May 22, 2009

GKS Marine Services, a part of GKS Global Services, offers laser scanning for marine applications. For over 25 years GKS has performed laser scanning for many industries, including petrochemical, construction, power generation, auto, aerospace, and manufacturing companies, and is now offering specialized experience in marine applications.

3D scanning for marine applications, also called long-range scanning, is a ground-based technique for collecting high-density 3D data to create digital models of complex entities such as seagoing vessels, offshore platforms, ships' systems, vintage boats, and other big structures and locations, both inside and out.

3D laser scanning is a new technology for solving the complex problems inherent in the boatbuilding, marine engineering, and naval architecture fields. GKS can perform on-site 3D scanning of objects of almost any size. The company's experience in performing marine scans includes scans used for hull surface modeling, updating and retrofitting ships' systems and parts, digitally documenting engine rooms and other structures for which there is no digital data, as well as calculating volumes of fuel tanks, and modeling entire off-shore oil platforms.
