Spectra Tools Small & Versatile

Sometimes a tool can have multiple uses.  United Foremen installers learned this fact recently when they used a Spectra LP51G on their job site in Charlotte.  The compact laser-pointing tool turned out to be the perfect solution for plumbing a column on site during concrete work.

This small but versatile Spectra Lasers tool can replace the plumb bob, square and level in the toolbox.  Its 5 beam pointer with green light works well indoors and out and is especially well-seen in red dirt.  These pointers are water, mud and shock-resistant and can even withstand 3 foot drop onto concrete.  Stop by one of our locations or call 1-800-443-7561 to pick up a LP51G today!

 

Great Time at Faulconer Construction’s Field Days!

SITECH Mid-Atlantic team members recently joined Carter Machinery for Faulconer Construction’s Employee Field Day.  It was a cold but lovely Virginia day where many Faulconer employees enjoyed seeing and experimenting with new Trimble and Spectra products.

Michael Stellato and John Stellato, representing our Chesapeake office, spoke with Faulconer employees and answered questions about various instruments and programs including Trimble’s TSC7, Propeller Aero drones and the newest models of Spectra Lasers like the DG813 pipe laser.

Michael Carris, Trimble Product Manager, demonstrated the new Trimble SiteVision product.  Launched in late 2019, SiteVision offers an augmented reality tool to the site project.  Training is available on this new technology to your team.

SiteWorks was also a popular product of discussion along with other Trimble software products like Business Center and Trimble Stratus.  Product demonstrations and training are available to all customers who purchase and want to learn more about these programs from our SITECH Mid-Atlantic staff.

Cold Weather Calibration Time

It’s January, its the start of the New Year and it’s COLD.  Sounds like a good time to bring your laser in for calibration and service, doesn’t it?

Depending on the type of work you do and how often your laser is used, it may stay in correct calibration for long periods of time.  However, the calibration can be off it has been used in extreme temperature swings, been exposed to water or condensation or has been jilted or dropped.  Many companies find that their “slow season” brought on by cold or wet weather is good time to bring lasers in for service.  The SITECH MA rental department can even set you up with a service rental if you need one while yours is in the shop.  Our service team can also check your receivers and accessories and set you up with new items as needed.

With every new laser purchase and after each subsequent calibration, the SITECH MA service team will send a yellow card reminding you that it’s time for your yearly calibration.  Most clean and calibration service tickets cost less than $150.00 and are completed within a few days.  Our team can service all brands and types of lasers including rotating and pipe models. Give us a call at 1-800-443-7561 to learn about our service department and find your perfect drop-off spot!
