Evans Metal Products adds Trimble 3D tech for faster, more accurate scanning in building construction, and industrial applications increasing accuracy of survey applications
Elkhart-Goshen, IN (OPENPRESS) Evans Metal Products, Inc. today announced the addition of advanced, on-site scanning capabilities using Trimble X7 3D scanning technology and software on a wide range of portfolio projects throughout the Midwest. Company president David Evans explained, "We're now able to provide our customers with highly accurate, on-site measurements with practical application in building construction, facilities management, and industrial survey applications. All these are aided by Trimble 3D scanning technology." Founded in 1978, Trimble's technology solutions are used in over 150 countries with Trimble employees in more than 40 countries.
Evans continued, "After careful evaluation, we selected Trimble's X7 technology because of its combination of simplicity of operation, breakthrough technology for reliable data collection and constructable workflows focused on improving field productivity. The application possibilities for 3D scanning are nearly endless. For example, the interior of a very large venue can be scanned and rendered with incredible levels of detail. Recent scans have provided accuracy to the nearest eighth inch. This gives our firm the unique capability to reduce planning time and drive projects costs lower for our clients."
