AsBuilt for Rail Alignment

The Challenge:

A 40-year-old coal fired power plant was experiencing issues with the Tripper Car rails due to misalignment. The rails were out of alignment in multiple planes, but true and straight was difficult to determine due to equipment and flooring issues. 

The Solution:

AsBuilt utilized 3D laser scanning to capture the as-is conditions of the 900-foot-long room. The scans captured the conveyor, rails, and floor elevations. The scan data was used to develop a heat mapped image of the tripper rails to determine in which direction the rails should be moved.
