Maptek LR3 Laser Scanner


Maptek LR3 laser scanner is a long range survey system combining fast accurate sensing, high resolution digital imagery and powerful modelling software for improving overall productivity and project safety.

The LR3 is 30% smaller and 25% lighter, with 2.5 times faster data acquisition than the earlier Maptek 8800 series. The system is protected to IP65 for reliable operation in rugged environments.

The system includes a new, improved high dynamic range panoramic camera for better digital panoramic imagery. This produces high resolution images for geotechnical analysis and visualisation.

The Maptek LR3 laser scanner possesses the hallmark survey workflow that helps boost productivity for mines, quarries and civil engineering projects. Matched with dedicated software it generates accurate survey deliverables for civil, forensic, architectural and infrastructure applications.

Integrated software and hardware provide the optimal workflow, tailored for open cut and underground mining, civil engineering, bulk handling and quarry operations. Fast, accurate processing provides the deliverables for stockpile reconciliation, CAD drawings, as-builts and 3D modelling.

Maptek laser scanning systems can be set up on a tripod or mounted on a vehicle for stop-go or continuous survey. The Maptek LR3 laser scanner is ideal for stockpile and infrastructure survey.

A modular design allows sites to order a configuration to suit their application.

Maptek laser scanning solutions are developed by a technology provider who understands the survey landscape and adds new, value-in-use functionality.
