Maptek : i-Site 8200 Scanner
Following the success of the I-Site 8800, Designmakers were again approached by Maptek to develop an ergonomic weatherproof housing for their new 8200 laser scanner. By achieving targeted size and weight reductions, this product can now be used in a wider range of applications.
A significant new application is the use of the scanner in under ground mining sites. When mounted horizontally to a 10 metre custom designed telescopic carbon fibre boom, the scanner can be projected out into the void of a mine shaft to allow a 360 degree scan. Designmakers were also responsible for the design of this purpose built boom that can be manually operated or deployed from a variety of vehicles.
