Sprayed concrete (or shotcrete) can generate excessive waste: costing too much, or uneven application, compromising the safety of the tunnel, your equipment, and workers. The team at GeoSLAM have designed and built an intelligent solution to help you to make sure your sprayed concrete is applied to the correct thickness using LiDAR scanning.
The GeoSLAM shotcrete product is sold exclusively by Normet under the SmartScan name.

Scanning shotcrete in mining
The Sika Sprayed Concrete Handbook states that the only method for accurately calculating initial strength is by measuring thickness. Current methods rely on operators endangering themselves to un-secured shotcrete in order to manually collect thickness readings. A total of 5% of all tunneling injuries can be attributed to the shotcreting process in tunneling. Industry professionals recognise the need to balance the provision of a safe working environment for its operators with the demand for increased production rates, accurately measured and documented shotcrete thickness.
