    DMT at the INTERGEO: The world's only 3D Laser scanner with explosion protection

    At this year's INTERGEO trade fair, DMT presented the GYROMAT 3000, the world's most precise gyroscope, as well as the IMAGER 5006 Ex. This 3D laser scanner is purpose built for use in mines and chemical plants or other high-risk explosive areas such as oil platforms. Since demonstrating their prototype last year, DMT has worked in close cooperation with Zoller + Fröhlich to produce the first series.

    DMT's latest presentation showed the development of a kinematic shaft surveying system, proving the IMAGER 5006 Ex. to be a useful resource for the mining industry. For the first time, it is possible to carry out high-precision surveys of mine shafts in explosive environments, enabling the collection of valuable data concerning issues such as structural change and stability. Initial projects in hard coal mining have already been completed successfully and the major coal mining nations Russia and China are showing a particularly strong interest in the system.
