GKS Inspection Services is offering daily, weekly and monthly rentals of Faro portable measurement equipment, including the Faro LS-880 for long-range scanning projects.

GKS is also offering training for the scanning device by a metrologist or trained engineer if needed, and can help with consulting, rentals, training, and data processing services.

Purchasing scanning equipment can be costly.

GKS offers a more cost-effective option by renting out the specialised equipment, and providing highly experienced personnel to run it or to thoroughly train others in its operation.

The company can also process the enormous volume of digital data generated by the long-range 3D scanning systems as needed.

Raw point-cloud data can be exported into ASCII, DXF, DWG, IGES and STEP.

Scan data files can also be post-processed into AutoCAD, Solidworks, Pro/E, Catia, UG and Ideas.

Steve DeRemer, general manager, said, ‘This rental programme is a great option for knowledgeable customers who need to use the equipment for a limited number of projects or for a temporary increase in their workload.’ GKS officials also noted that existing Faro customers are taking advantage of the rental programme to fill in when their own systems are sent to Faro for factory calibrations and repairs.

The Faro LS and Photon systems are high-accuracy, high-speed, long-range scanners that are capable of scanning very large objects and areas quickly.

They can be used for scanning ships, roadways, buildings, bridges and power plants.
