Why Systems Engineering?

Our Services

 Engineered for the Steel Industry

3D Process Piping Systems

Instead of giving you just a pretty picture of your process piping, Systems models are ‘smart’!  The model contains pipe sizes, service tags, structural supports, and more. Systems can use this to generate a comprehensive Bill of Material, down to even the nut, bolt, and gasket kits needed for install. This same model is used to also create plans & sections, Isometrics, and Spools.

Millions of Data Points Accurate to 2mm

Laser Scanning & Point Clouds

We use state of the art Leica laser scanners to accurately capture a ‘snapshot’ of your facility. This generates a 3D point cloud that allows us to accurately pull measurements and generate a new project that will fit like a glove. No super computer needed to see your project, Systems Cintoo takes care of all the heavy lifting!

Got Problems?  We have Solutions.

Engineered Problem Solving for Steel

Making steel produces a constant string of challenges to work around. If you’re stumped or need help, we’ve been solving complex problems in steel mills for over 50 years, from ‘simple’ gantry arm issues to moveable buildings with an integrated dust collection system.

3D Structural Steel Design

We can provide in-house detailing for custom and structural steel drawings to ensure accurate work and speedy production for each project’s unique requirements. Our experienced staff continues to complete projects on time and error free.

“Systems Team, I wanted to say Thank You to all of you who made our Veterans Tribute structure possible this year. I know countless people and hours went into making this a possibility. With what started out as a just a thought turned into an amazing structure that we can honor our veterans by. Your team was a huge piece of bringing that vision to life. To those of you who are veterans, thank you for your service and thank you to the Systems team for partnering with us on this project.”

Pressure Vessel Replacement: Design, Fabrication, and Install

For this job, the customer had two identical pressure vessels, but only one was in operating condition. They requested that we generate fabrication drawings of an identical pressure vessel, for a replacement. We started by scanning both tanks as they sat. From that scan we were able to get the overall dimensions the tank needed


Confined Spaces

Systems was asked to perform a scan in the basement of an electrical substation. The basement only has restricted ladder access, so the entire basement requires a confined space permit to enter. The managers were looking to install a staircase for safer, easier access for regular maintenance. The site required bids from multiple companies before


Laser Scanning for As-Built Drawings

Admit it, we know that construction projects aren’t always built EXACTLY like the drawings or the model. Modifications and improvements are often made mid-project, with the intention of capturing those changes with field sketches or redlined drawings. With Systems 3D laser scans, redlined drawings are a thing of the past. Systems installed the piping for
