Mining technology provider Maptek has appointed Brandt Positioning Technology, as a reseller of Maptek I-Site 3D mine survey systems in Canada. Brandt Positioning Technology is the largest technology solutions provider to the survey, engineering, mapping, construction, mining, and agricultural sectors in Canada.
Maptek products offered by Brandt include the I-Site 8810 and 8200 laser scanners, I-Site Studio 3D point cloud software and the PerfectDig conformance system. These technologies are used in mining and civil engineering applications where accurate survey and 3D modelling is essential to productivity.
I-Site laser scanner
The extra-long range I-Site 8810 laser scanner is used in large open pit, highwall and topographical surveys, acquiring detailed data out to 2 km. The integrated high resolution digital panoramic camera captures imagery for overlay on the point cloud. The integrated digital compass and GPS, combined with a ruggedised table, make the system easy to set up and use. The IP65 rating certifies that the scanner can withstand harsh conditions.
Point cloud data is easily processed in I-Site Studio, with workflows that streamline routine survey applications. Models, animation and 3D PDFs promote clear communication between stakeholders.
PerfectDig software compares I-Site scans and pit models to allow real-time monitoring of excavation against design. Variations can be accounted for before excavators leave an area, and highwall issues can be identified at an early stage.
Brandt Division Manager, Joe Chisholm, commented: “We are very excited to be the dealer for Maptek in Canada as this product line greatly enhances our offering for our Positioning & Mining customers. The reason we went with the Maptek product was their reputation in the mining industry and it is the most robust product in the market place”.
“In Canada, our customers need to operate in extreme temperatures and conditions so we cannot afford to sell a ‘toy’ scanner. Another feature we could not ignore was the operating range of Maptek scanners – nothing else comes close. It ensures our clients in heavy construction, civil and mining are operating within a safe distance, meeting their safety expectations. The I-Site software is the best we have seen for operator ease of use and efficient delivery of the finished product. PerfectDig also complements Brandt’s construction product line with volume scanning solutions”, Chisholm continued.
Maptek I-Site Technical Sales representative, Leo Krenzel, added: “We are very excited to have Brandt on board as a Canadian reseller. The local experience and expertise in positioning technology will help Maptek better service the Canadian survey market”.
