automet® - Industry Leading Pipe Measurement System
Traditional pipe measurement techniques are slow and often result in poor design integrity – leading to costly manufacturing errors, on-site re-work and client disputes.
automet® is a revolutionary 3D digital pipe-spool measurement system that dramatically simplifies the measurement process – delivering unmatched integrity at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional systems.
Simply import spool design CAD files or enter design data manually. automet® will instantly render a precise 3D digital model of each spool. Next, measure the spool using a Leica Total Station survey instrument coupled with our proprietary position capture tools. automet® will automatically generate a comprehensive set of QA reports detailing any manufacturing deviation from the original design.
automet®’s powerful data capture and QA capabilities enable reliable and easily verifiable manufacturing accuracy within design tolerances.
automet® FAB system overview
Measurements Collected in Minutes - Powerful 3D Reports Rendered in Seconds...
The automet® system is designed to enable fast collection of highly accurate measurement data – but the system’s true power lies in its ability to quickly process measurement inputs to render precise and true 3D digital models and reports.
Traditional redline mark-up drawings create inevitable transcription errors that automet®’s powerful visual 3D reports are designed to eliminate.
automet® automatically generates a sophisticated 3D digital model of each spool section including detailed annotation overlays defining the length, position, angle and alignment of each component along with clear deviation alerts where any exist between the manufactured spool vs the original design – making even the most complex and intricate structures extremely easy to interpret and comprehend.
