Stone masonry with laser templating and handling tools

The stone masonry industry is experiencing a significant shift with the introduction of advanced tools that enhance measurement accuracy and improve the safety of stone transportation. The LT-2D3D Laser Templator is leading this shift, offering a high level of measurement precision that significantly reduces the reliance on manual templating materials and the need for on-site cutting adjustments.

Utilising the LT-2D3D Laser Templator, stone masons can achieve precise measurements of intricate projects, such as custom benchtops or uniquely shaped stone features.

The impact of such precise measurements is clear: it streamlines the installation process. The LT-2D3D ensures that the digital data for stone pieces is accurate, allowing fabricators to cut once, confident that additional adjustments are unlikely. This level of reliability in the measurements alleviates much of the time-intensive and laborious task of reworking materials at the job site, leading to a more straightforward installation process.

The practical benefits extend beyond the workshop. By reducing the requirement for on-site cutting, stone masons mitigate the amount of heavy equipment needed at the installation site, which inherently makes for a safer work environment. The absence of cutting tools reduces the risk associated with manual cutting and creates a cleaner job site.

Parallel to the LT-2D3D’s introduction, products from Omni Cubed are ensuring that once the stone is cut, it is transported with the utmost care. Handling systems like the Aqua Carry Clamp, Pro Cart and Pro-Dolly HD2 are specifically designed to secure stone materials, carry high-load weights and accommodate intricate cut-outs. The Pro-Dolly HD2, for example, is adept at transporting hefty benchtops, while the Sink Hole Saver Edge protects vulnerable areas around cutouts from incurring damage during transit.

These handling and transportation tools complement the precision of the LT-2D3D Laser Templator. When a stone is cut and finished in the workshop, these handling systems ensure that it arrives on-site ready for installation without the need for further adjustments. The reduction of on-site cuts translates into a more efficient installation, saving time and resources.

The combination of accurate laser templating and specialised handling equipment represents an important advancement in the stone masonry field. Stone masons are now equipped to deliver their projects with an assurance of fit and safety that was more challenging to achieve in the past. This technological synergy enhances the workflow, allowing for a focus on what stone masons care about most: delivering high-quality work with professionalism and craftsmanship. It’s not about a fundamental transformation but an evolution in practice — one that introduces a notable improvement in the efficiency and outcome of stone masonry projects.
