Amberg Tunnel – Measuring gives you perspective

Tunnel construction

Modern tunnelling is subject to numerous demands: Tunnelling companies must keep costs low, finish projects in less time and still keep up with the high quality and safety standards.

Subsequently the main goal is always to optimise the tunnel excavation process and workflows. Efficient, cost-effective surveying solutions are needed, without placing precision and safety at risk. Equipment needs to be tailored optimally to specific project requirements and be usable by the tunnel crew on site.

The Amberg Tunnel product portfolio offers the customer an innovative and reliable solution.

Amberg Tunnel surveying solution

The Amberg Tunnel surveying solution from Amberg Technolo- gies supports tunnelling in all construction phases. The system solutions under the umbrella name of Amberg Tunnel combine precise measuring instruments with task-specific software. Significant improvements in efficiency are realised, especially in tunnel navigation, tunnel profile measurements, tunnel scanning, geotechnical analysis and as-built tunnel analysis.

See ahead – build safer with Amberg Tunnel Seismic Prediction (TSP)

Today, successful tunnel builders don’t leave a safe and fast tunnelling to chance. They rely on TSP and avoid a costly decrease of production efficiency usually related to unforeseen geological hazards. TSP provides advance notice of geological uncertainties in the rock mass and is the key factor for efficient risk management.

  • Very high suitability for use on construction sites: Malfunctions are reduced to a minimum
  • Sophisticated, automated 3D data processing and visualisation: Precise and reliable information is illustrated for everyone
  • Timely results: Valuable information come in when the right action has to be taken






Touch and build – optimise tunnel construction by reducing costs and time

Tunnel heading guidance and control has never been as easy as with Amberg Navigator. The Amberg Navigator tablet is operated by the tunnelling crew or surveyor on site. The tasks arranged in the Amberg tablet software based on the project-specific applications provide fully automatic control of the total station, laser scanner or Leica MultiStation according to the tasks selected.

  • One platform: One software platform for all surveying and geotechnical work steps in a tunnel project
  • Scan in real-time: Real-time scan data processing in the tunnel heading and direct stake out of critical areas
  • 3D and BIM: Measurement and analysis in 3D – BIM compatibility





Making surveying faster and simpler with the flexibilty to react to outside influences

Amberg Applications makes surveying tasks in tunnel construction faster and simpler. Fast responsiveness to changing conditions on site empowers the user to react and adapt immediately.
