Renishaw's laser scanning devices for the mining and quarrying industry have pioneered new technologies, allowing operators to survey previously inaccessible areas and plan future projects in safety, whilst maximising productivity. Our well-known and widely adopted systems comprise Quarryman®, Boretrak®, C-ALS®Void Scanner and Dynascan. We offer:

  • Robust, deployable scanning devices, which give precise and accurate mine mapping information
  • A full range of systems for quarries and mines, which allow for work to be planned more profitably: blast optimisation, stockpile measurement, void mapping and stope mapping
  • Measurement and scanning software that provides data clearly and quickly
  • Reliable, world-class mining measurement and scanning systems, backed by global servicing and customer support

Marine dynamic positioning for offshore support vessels

Fanbeam DP laser

Fanbeam® has led the market for over 20 years, due to its durability,high-performance in tough conditions and ease of use for dynamic positioning operators (DPOs).

Everything about our DP reference position system is designed to help vessel operators keep vessels working: our vast network of global servicing centres are staffed by engineers trained by us and stocked with all spare parts and replacement units ready to go.

Fanbeam 5 builds on our long history of working with fleet managers and DPOs to deliver our most accurate, most reliable DP system yet. Customers upgrading see real improvements in stability, less interference, better target identification and benefit from new software, which is easier to interpret and act on, speeding up operations and giving DPOs even greater confidence in decisions.

Mapping large areas on land and water

Dynascan offers high-performance 3D mapping in tough environments. The one pod solution can be mobilised in under an hour and can carry out surveys in a fraction of the time of conventional survey techniques. High-grade resistance to water and dust means the Dynascan can be used safely, accurately and without damage in areas where surveying was previously harzardous or arduous to complete.

Laser modules for system integration
