Laser Products Industries presents a new digital measuring system, model LT-2D3D-C, for fast and accurate jobsite use. The product captured a Visionary Award for creativity and innovation at the 2017 AWFS fair in Las Vegas.
LPI has been in business since 1994, providing digital measuring products for the stone and countertop industries. It started developing laser products and specific software tailored to cabinetmakers earlier this year.
The system is compatible with most standard 3D design and layout software such as Microvellum, Cabinet Vision and others, and generates 3D renderings within minutes after the data is imported, according to company president Rich Katzmann.
“When we started developing this system, we knew we could add value to [woodworking] companies and justify the cost of investing in going digital as far as templating goes,” says Katzmann.
“We strongly believe using our product can help the custom woodworking guy win more jobs. They can whip out our system at a consultation, spend about five minutes capturing all of the relevant data needed to import into a 3D rendering program, and show the customer the project right there.”
The system can take measurements in high and hard to reach locations, eliminating the need for ladders and acrobatics, according to Katzmann.
The system sells for $15,950, which includes a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet and user training.
“We believe going from manual to digital is incredibly complicated and important, and a business changing decision for our customers. So we have a national force of salesman and in-house trainer, and with every system we sell we offer to go to your shop and train your workers until everyone understands it,” adds Katzmann.
