KIEL Engineering GmbH supports you in the three-dimensional measurement of machinery. Our employees' many years of service will benefit you in the preparation and performance of three-dimensional measurements, while the use of state-of-the-art technology enables us to perform collision-free planning for legacy machinery and to document existing industrial machinery.

The use of state-of-the-art laser scanners enables a complete 3D measurement of complex structures such as buildings, installations, facilities and industrial machinery. Non-contact scanning enables industrial machinery to be measured while in operation, offering our customers a simple, cost-effective method of recording and analysing the structure of their machinery. The analysed data is visualised using CAD software, providing a detailed insight into the complex structure of the machinery.
