Stockpile Time Machine

, , , , , ,

This video was produced to help a Firmatek client see the changes in her inventories between measurements. With unexpected discrepancies in her accounting of a specific product, this video and the accompanying inspection by our technicians was all she needed to accept Firmatek’s measurements as the truth, make the necessary adjustments to the books and verify the true source of the discrepancy. Our client was armed with the truth.

Our Mission: Earn trust. Pursue truth. Arm the client.

Colorful Deposits

, , , , , ,

Limestone quality in Texas can change quickly and keeping track of your extraction and remaining reserves can be difficult.  Take a look as we show you what tracking those deposits using 3D mapping looks like.  The various colored surfaces represent changes in the topography between scans. It includes overburden removal, blasted rock and small piles of oversize on the quarry floor.

South Bound Traffic Scan

3.5 miles of Texas highway is scanned, mapped and contoured at night using Firmatek’s mobile mapping system.  This data was used to quickly and accurately assess the cut and fill requirements for the project.

Accurate Stockpiling Inside a Hole

, , , , , ,

Stockpiling inside a hole can be tricky business because of the limited information available concerning the floor beneath the material to be measured.  Pre-Scanning the hole/pit before storage allows precise volume measurements.  Here are some images taken by one of our field specialists, Brett Murphy.  With Mobile LiDAR technology and skilled technicians, every measurement in this challenging scenario is now an apples to apples comparison with the past.  It offers superior accuracy and credibility.

This is a closed pit that has been designated now as the new location for inventory storage. By scanning this pit before adding any inventory, we will be able to get great measurement from here forward without having to guess the dimensions or depth of the hole.

Now that the hole has inventory in it we are able to compare the volume difference between when it is full and empty. No guesswork required.

Take a look as we fly through 2 different landfill operations using the eyes of mobile lidar. Firmatek uses mobile scanning to help managers in this important industry tightly monitor 4 different variables in effective landfill management.  Come find out what they are.

Pre-Construction Scanning Gives Better Information

This scan was taken of the actual topography before planning began to help determine how the new site could best be laid out.

The topography to be removed has been selected and made transparent. Notice the future loading area beneath the topography to be removed.

Topography has been removed and new site has been most efficiently designed.
