Industrial Surveying and 3D Laser Tracking

Industrial Surveying & 3D Laser Tracking

Accurate Technologies, a branch of R.E. Warner, has more than 25 years of experience in the industrial and manufacturing applications of surveying. Our surveyors have provided technical services for various disciplines of industrial client’s staff from engineering, environmental, legal, plant utilities, among others.

Our surveyors utilize the latest technology in surveying, mapping, 3D laser scanning, 3D modeling, and high-precision 3D laser tracking.

Using 3D laser tracking technology, we are able to provide extremely accurate, large volume measurements in three dimensions. The tracker sends a laser beam to a reflective target being held on the object to be measured; the returning beam delivers 3D coordinate data. 3D laser trackers provide the highest precision field measurements and are commonly used throughout industry and manufacturing.

We have provided service in the steel industry, petroleum plants, plastic and paper industry, power plants and more. Several total project costs have reached $1 billion.
