Since the 20s century, much advanced technology reach to significant progress and are applied in various traditional industrial. Today we will introduce a successful application example of laser technology in industry floor, that is laser screed.

What is laser screed

Although laser screed is an excellent advanced machine, it was came into being in 80s of last century. As bulk production of laser equipment in resent years, its price is constantly decreased, it is more and more common in construction of industrial floor. It uses laser emitter to launch a standard laser flat,then it use laser receiver on the machine to react the position where the laser flat is on. Then controller on the machine adjusts and controls leveling head of the machine according to laser position, so as to conduction leveling operation to concrete. So laser screed is a high-precision leveling equipment for concrete, it takes laser launched by emitter as datum plane and controls leveling head through laser receiver on laser screed machine.

Application area–widely in various various floor

Laser screed machine can be widely used in various indoor and outdoor floor projects. Indoor floor includes various industrial plant, workshop, warehouse, large shopping center, logistic center, exhibition center, underground parking and so on. Outdoor floor includes various wharf, container warehouse, logistics freight yard, airport landing field, outdoor parking, square, residence floor and municipal administration pavement and so on. Laser screed is applicable for various construction of large concrete floor.

Low investment, high precision, fast construction for floor, economical labor.

Recent years, laser positioning equipment is widely used in various large and small projects, which makes it is produced in bulk, and its price is constantly decreased. Cost of laser screed machine is gradually decreased, now to obtain a laser screed machine you only need a small investment, and its usage investment is also very low. Taking hiking ev850-2t laser screed as an example. The machine is produced by Hiking machinery, it has a high quality and low price. The machine uses Leica laser system, it is totally controlled by computer system, its quality and precision are excellent, but its price no more than 20 thousand dollars. The machine applies Honda power system, so it has perfect stability, its breakdown is 0 within three years. Its fuel consumption is also low so investment after purchase of the machine is low. The machine uses laser positioning system, so it saves lots of formwork during construction. Meanwhile is will saves lots of labor costs, shorten construction period. So compared with saved labor cost, machine investment is insignificant.

As mentioned above, the machine uses Leica laser system, it has excellent precision. Precision of laser system can reach to about 1mm, application of laser screed machine will greatly increase FL value of floor. Independent layout and large area whole pouring of laser emitter ensure consistency of ground level. Partitioning construction of large area will decrease construction joint, greatly decrease later maintenance cost of floor. What’s more, the machine can set slope. It can construct on floor with slope, so it is applicable for various floor project.  

Construction speed with laser screed is very fast, especially when the machine is used cooperate with ride on power trowel machine. Generally speaking, construction area can reach to 3000sq/day it those two machines are used together. It only needs 6-8 constructors, construction speed is very fast, it can save labor investment.

As we said above, applications of laser screed and trowel machine greatly enhance construction speed and quality of industry floor. If you are concrete floor contractor in 2020, you should know about those advanced construction equipment. Increasing construction efficiency, saving labor cost and enhancing construction quality are only part of advantages of laser screed of ride on power trowel. The most important is that they are a good advertisement, they are the symbol of your enterprise, which can help you obtain more projects.
