Retooling, Redesign and
New Plant Construction

While change is nothing new in the automotive industry, the pace of it is. In an increasingly technological world, consumers are accustomed to short lifecycle products, such as mobile phones and computers.

Manufacturers that aspire to edge out the competition and be the first to give customers what they want are under pressure to shrink their multi-year new product development process. As automobile manufacturers transform their vehicles to meet the swiftly changing demands of the global marketplace, complex assembly-line layouts need to be safely and efficiently retooled.


Shutdowns &

Every minute a plant is shut down for maintenance and retooling costs money.


The introduction of any new equipment must fit precisely and work seamlessly with other systems.


Despite the increased frequency of retooling, safety and quality standards cannot be compromised.

Bridging the Gap

To minimize production schedule delays and keep production lines running smoothly, engineers and designers must have accurate as-is assembly-line data at their fingertips.

Leica Geosystems’ 3D laser scanning hardware and software are the trusted solutions for capturing detailed, precise digital data (point clouds) for efficient automotive plant maintenance and retooling. Leica laser scanners enable facilities to be documented safely, quickly, cost-effectively and accurately while substantially reducing downtime.


Virtually bring the production line to your desktop to visualize and optimize new designs before fabrication and installation


Quickly and easily incorporate new designs into the line while minimizing safety risks and shutdown time


Capture accurate and comprehensive data with highly efficient workflows that lead to better production line designs

Leica 3D Laser Scanning Solutions
Make Accurate Documentation Simple

Leica Geosystems’ 3D laser scanners are the industry standard for accurately and efficiently recording digital data (point clouds) of plants and facilities. It’s an easy, quick way to gather precise as-is information safely and cost effectively.

Intuitive Software Makes Point Cloud
Processing Fast and Easy

Using Leica’s High Definition Scanning (HDS) software suite – Cyclone, CloudWorx, and TruView – you can stitch individual point clouds together to create a complete picture, virtually visit a facility or structure, sort throught the data, evaluate it and use it to communicate globally.

Seamless Integration With Information Management
Software Maximizes Productivity

From innovative solutions in the Leica software suite to seamless integration with popular third-party software, we make it easy to manage complex datasets for more informed decision-making.
