ProSia 3D Laser Scanning Services for Engineering and Construction

As a full service industrial EPC provider, IAC's engineering, planning, and construction teams know the value of initial feasibility and front end engineering design (FEED) studies that identify technical issues in the bid stage, so that we can provide our clients with reliable estimations of project costs and time tables.

Therefore, we are happy to announce that IAC has added 3D laser scanning to the industrial engineering and construction services we offer.  Dubbed "ProSIA", for See-It-All, our trained staff will use 3D laser scanning equipment to create a point cloud model of the job site. This model is used to create accurate engineering, equipment, and construction plans, which limit redesign in the engineering process, saving both money and time for our clients. 

Here are 6 reasons why IAC's ProSia 3D Laser Scanning Services for construction can benefit your next project:

Predictive Maintenance Solutions for the Steel & Iron Industry

Unreliable assets have enormous consequences. What if your assets could consistently operate at or above their rated capacities, for a greater percentage of total hours each year, all while spending less money on maintenance?

That’s exactly what today’s best companies have discovered how to do. Industry studies show that the average facility spends approximately 5% of its Replacement Asset Value (RAV) on maintenance each year. In comparison, best performers spend 60% less—just 2% of RAV—while enjoying better uptime, efficiency, and profitability. It’s not about simply spending less on maintenance; it’s about working differently—working smarter—to achieve more reliable steel production operations.

Deep Foundation Systems Construction: Formwork and Pilings

Forming and pouring concrete foundations over 10 feet deep requires careful consideration of many factors. These include the type of soil and its load-bearing capacity, the desired soil compaction levels, the dimensions of the foundation, and the thickness of the concrete. Additionally, the job requires experienced and qualified personnel with knowledge of industry standards and safety protocols.

Checklist for Baghouse Dust Collector Maintenance and Inspection

Baghouse dust collector maintenance is essential in order to protect the health and safety of people in the surrounding environment, and to ensure the process equipment and machinery in an industrial plant runs properly and efficiently. In other words, if your baghouse dust collectors and ventilation systems aren’t operating at peak performance levels, it will be difficult for the equipment in your plant to meet production rates! By regularly cleaning and inspecting the baghouse, potential issues can be identified and addressed before they become more serious.
