Data Collection

With our arsenal of high-tech instruments and equipment, FIELD has projects covered when it comes to onsite data.

Laser scanning in Gladstone

Expert Technicians

Laser Scanning: When complex structures need accurate measurement, FIELD engages our specialist technical team who perform laser scanning and tracking services. We have hundreds of projects scanned and documented, with the expertise that comes from the team who perform the scans being the same people who apply the information. Our clients are assured of a fast and accurate outcome when it comes to data processing. We have fully trained and qualified laser scanning technicians with expert knowledge and capability to capture and interpret critical information.

Strain Gauging: The strain gauging team at FIELD have refined their skills over years of collecting data from draglines, shiploaders, cranes and concrete structures such as bridges and culverts, providing the engineering team with real-life data for analysis. The high accuracy strain gauge data can be taken in both static and dynamic environments using our state-of-the-art, non-destructive and non-invasive hardware.

Heavy duty scales for engineering

Heavy Weighing: FIELD’s in-house developed ‘heavy weighing kit’ has been used to find the mass and centre of gravity (CoG) of many different structures and objects, including a 1250 tonne shiploader at an eastern-Australian export terminal, and a 400 tonne platform structure to be mounted on an industrial silo at Darwin LNG. The heavy weighing kit is modular, so it can be expanded to suit any size structure to provide precise mass and CoG data. This allows for refined crane and transport plant selection.
