Laser Scanning

PMC is proud to offer the latest technology in Laser Scanning and point cloud data conversion.

We have partnered with FARO, the leader in high definition laser scanning hardware.  FARO scanners allow the user to collect a digital point cloud of data which accurately captures all details of the scanned environment, making traditional field measurement techniques unnecessary. 


Distance accuracy up to ±2mm

Range from 0.6m up to 330m

Noise reduction 50%


Distance accuracy up to ±2mm

Range from 0.6m up to 120m

Measurement rate up to 976,000 points/sec

The FARO Focus3D X 330 is ideal for outdoor applications.  This small sized, light weight, extra long range scanner remains accurate even in direct sunlight.  Featuring intuitive touchscreen controls, and an integrated GPS receiver, operating and positioning the scanner is simple.
The original FARO Focus3D is small and compact, weighing just 11 lbs.  Featuring intuitive touchscreen controls, this accurate coordinate measuring machine can eliminate challenges faced by modern metrology needs.


What is Laser Scanning?

Our high definition laser scanners (HDS) accurately capture thousands of data points per second. This process allows a single team to collect and easily share all measurements,  from the  floor to ceiling.  This point cloud of data is a 3d representation of your facility that can be viewed by your entire CAD team. Laser scanning promotes a safe work environment, as there few interruptions to operations. 

Why Laser Scanning?

In today’s environment, speed to market and reduced costs are critical. By utilizing laser scanning for documenting the conditions of your facility, project timelines can be shortened, project risk lowered, and costs reduced. This is accomplished by using a single team to capture the facility, and the following day, 3d data of the area can be delivered to the entire team in any location.  The most common question is how many square feet can be covered in a day? The answer is:  Typically 50,000 square feet depending on environment and complexity.


FARO Products are easily integrated with

Autodesk 3d design software and other popular CAD packages.


Autodesk Factory Design Suite allows you create realistic digital models of your manufacturing facility, plant, or factory.  You can conduct what-if layout scenarios to determine the best solution before any equipment is installed.   

PMC is happy to assist with Autodesk sales and service.  Contact us today for more information or a quote.
