Press Release – Neptec Technologies Corp. adds Haefli-Lysnar as a reseller for its OPAL 2.0 3D laser scanners in Western Australia

 

OTTAWA, Aug. 7, 2013 – Neptec Technologies Corp., a leading developer of innovative 3D machine vision products, today announced that, due to growing international interest in its breakthrough OPAL 2.0 LiDAR products, Haefli-Lysnar has been appointed as a reseller for Neptec’s family of 3D laser scanners in Western Australia.

OPAL LiDAR scanners are packaged for the punishing conditions typical of off-road vehicles and mapping sensors used in the mining, oil and gas, defense, and construction industries. They incorporate Neptec’s patented obscurant-penetrating LiDAR technology to allow the sensor to detect objects even in dusty conditions that render other LiDAR ineffective.

“Haefli Lysnar has built a solid reputation for outstanding service and support of world-class mapping and survey products from leading companies around the world,” said Michael Dunbar, Director of Business Development for Neptec Technologies. “We are looking forward to working with them to continue the rapid growth of our LiDAR business, especially in the mining market.”

“We are excited about the opportunities that Neptec’s OPAL scanners provide our clients in the mining and the oil and gas industries through their extended range, rugged design, obscurant penetrating and real-time autonomous capabilities,” said Dave Evans, General Manager of Haefli-Lysnar. “Neptec’s MILD™ (more information, less data) focus on extracting actionable information from OPAL scanners instead of just providing huge amounts of 3D data addresses one of the main pain-points faced by LiDAR users today.”
