There are many options available when it comes to choosing a laser screed today. When you are making the choice for your rental or lease, you will want to think about the size of the jobs you are doing. Those who have larger companies and who are doing larger jobs or more jobs will likely want to choose one of the larger screeds that can meet their demands. However, even those who are doing smaller jobs, or even work at home can find smaller laser screeds that will work out quite well for their needs.
You will also want to consider the easy of use, and the features, that the equipment has. You want the equipment to be simple enough to use for those that you teach without there being too much of a learning curve. Fortunately, they tend to be relatively simple to operate, even when it comes to the larger laser screeds that are available.
The equipment has been around since the late 1980s, and it has helped to increase the standards by which other screeds are measured. Laser screeds tend to be highly accurate, as well as efficient, which can help to increase productivity.
The screeds utilize lasers to identify locations and to place the concrete in the correct areas to ensure that the specific elevations are met. The screed head will have three parts – plow, auger, and vibrator. They are efficient because they can spread and precisely set the concrete in just a single pass, which means you can get work done faster.
A screed is one of the most important pieces of equipment used when it comes to flatwork projects, such as flooring. There are many different types of screeds that have been used over the years, and that are still in use, from simple 2x4s that are pulled across concrete by hand to truss screeds, vibrating hand screeds, and roller screeds. However, one of the most popular options for this type of equipment today is the laser screed.
Many companies today manufacture laser screeds, so you will have quite a few options from which you can choose. Some of the well-known manufacturers out there include Somero Enterprises, which was the first company to introduce these machines. Another popular company is Masterscreed. There are options available for just about any job whether it is large or small.
