With GeoSLAM Volumes, mine operators can easily calculate stockpile tonnages within a few minutes, and see change over time.
GeoSLAM’s powerful mobile mapping technology enables you to build high-density 3D volumetric models within minutes. Our market-leading, handheld laser scanners can determine accurate stockpile volumes, silo reserves or mining tempos, without the need for GPS. Walk and scan, or attach the scanner to a trolley, drone, pole, UAV or vehicle for remote monitoring of hazardous environments. Our volumes software instantly turns data into actionable 3D information for rapid real-time decision making. So now you can confidently verify volumes at all stages of the supply chain as frequently as necessary. Train your staff in minutes, slash survey times and drive down costs.
Why use GeoSLAM Volumes?
Easy, safe and quick volume and tonnage calculation using SLAM technology.
Use your ZEB handheld or mounted to a UAV to capture data as frequently as you need to get accurate volumetric insight.
Track volume change over time, and set alarms when your stockpile reaches min/max tonnage, volume or height.
The entire workflow is fast, easy and gives you essential information for managing your mine operations and supply chain.
“Go-anywhere” scanning –
Opening up areas ordinarily off-limits
Our fully-mobile technology is adaptable to any environment, especially complex spaces, without the need for GPS. Our laser scanners are lightweight and easy to use – you can walk with the handheld and survey accessible areas, or attach it to a trolley, drone, pole or vehicle for more confined or hazardous spaces.
Save time and money –
Manage stock inventory with confidence
You can capture and calculate complex data up to 10 times faster than traditional tools, with little or no disruption at the site. Slash survey times, increase measuring frequency and drive down costs. With GeoSLAM Volumes you can verify tonnage and volume at all stages of the supply chain as frequently as necessary.
Trained in minutes, scanning in minutes
Our lightweight, mobile scanners are user-friendly to the extent that they can be used without comprehensive training by anyone in building an accurate 3D model in the quickest time possible. Within minutes anyone can be operating the technology, saving additional preparation time for any members of staff previously unfamiliar with the technology.
How it works
GeoSLAM Stockpile volumes combines hardware and advanced SLAM to deliver important information, rapidly.
Easily walk around the perimeter or fly a UAV over a stockpile.
Transfer the data to a computer and upload to GeoSLAM Hub, then load the processed data to the Volumes software.
Define the boundaries and the floor, enter the bulk factor and specific gravity to view volume and material tonnage calculations in seconds.
Generate volumes reports as and when you need them.
Quickly collect data for stockpile analysis, using GeoSLAM
