Using a Laser Level
A laser level is an intelligent display device that can be installed on a moving object to collect the signal of the horizon, display the horizon in a larger field of view, and display the motion posture of the object in real-time. It is also widely used in handicrafts and the fields of construction and decoration.
A laser level is generally used in the construction of construction projects. Vertical lines and horizontal lines are required in the construction of ceiling installation, water, and electricity, air conditioning, fire pipeline erection, door and window installation, marble, floor tile laying, carpentry decoration, floor construction, etc. It can play the role of auxiliary and positioning markings, and of course, it can also be used for positioning in the installation of electromechanical equipment.
At present, the main application scenarios of the laser level include the application in civil engineering, the application in floor and ceiling, the application in curtain wall engineering, and the application in installing cabinets, and wall-mounted picture frames. We will introduce each application scenario in follow.
Using a Laser Level in Building
In the process of topographic mapping, geological survey, engineering construction, completion acceptance, and building deformation monitoring of construction projects, leveling is very important.
With the development and progress of technology in recent decades, laser level has become a commonly used leveling instrument, and the speed and efficiency of measurement have also been greatly improved. Leveling is to measure the height difference between two points on the ground by the use of a horizontal line of sight and a building laser level so that the elevation of the unknown point can be calculated from the elevation of the known point. Elevation measurement is one of the three basic tasks of measurement.
According to the different instruments and surveying methods, elevation measurement can be divided into leveling measurement, triangular elevation measurement, and barometric elevation measurement. Using a building laser level to measure the elevation is the most common and precise method of elevation measurement.
Using a Laser Level in Floor and Wall Project
The main function of the floor and wall laser level is to make an elevation line to determine the level of the tile, floor, or ceiling surface layer. When laying the tile, floor, or ceiling, use the floor and wall laser level to project a horizontal line at the position 50cm above the ground, and play a circle as the elevation line. In this way, the height surface layer of the tile, floor, or ceiling on the ground is the same as the elevation line, so as to achieve the level of the veneer layer.
Before use, you need to check whether the dial indicator is in the controlled range. In order to avoid measurement errors caused by the inaccurate zero position of the spirit level, the zero position of the spirit level must be calibrated or adjusted.
Using a Laser Level in Construction Repair
Measuring and laying out the line is the first step in the construction of the exterior decorative curtain wall, and it is also a key link. The results of measuring and laying out will have different degrees of influence on the production, ordering, and installation of construction materials in the next step. Its quality is related to the quality of the basic decoration of the entire curtain wall.
The main function of the construction laser level is to establish a horizontal line of sight to measure the height difference between two points on the ground. It should be mounted on a tripod when in use. The circular level bubble of the construction laser level is only roughly leveled. Under normal circumstances, as long as it does not deviate from the circle, it has no effect.
Since the automatic leveling level has a built-in compensator, a slight offset compensator will play a role. Its main features are When the sight of the telescope is slightly tilted, the compensator moves relative to the telescope under the action of gravity so that the reading of the scale at the sight level can be obtained automatically and quickly.
Using a Laser Level in Cabinets Installing
Cabinets and Picture frames are very commonly used in daily life, and many people will directly assemble them by themselves. Cabinets installing laser level is a necessary tool for cabinet and picture frame installation.
The laser level will project a laser line on the wall for you to find a level position. You can use the spirit level to determine where the nails should be placed, or where the top or bottom of an object should hang to ensure it is level.
The laser level is easy to measure whether the cabinet or the picture frame is installed flat. If there is unevenness during installation, it will directly affect the use effect of the cabinet and the picture frame. It is recommended to do a good job of horizontal measurement during installation to ensure the proper installation of the cabinet and the picture frame, and to have a better use guarantee.
