Functional model of a measurement and alignment system for masonry saws

A great deal of the work involved in laying paving stones is in cutting the curbstones to size. Previously, measuring the gaps and aligning the stones on the saw was performed manually. Using an innovation developed by tech-solute, all the gaps are measured in a single step using a handheld unit. This is subsequently inserted into the main module mounted on the saw. Laser lines show the user how the relevant stone should be aligned. This process enabled the overall time required for the work to be reduced by around a third. tech-solute received the Technologiefabrik Karlsruhe Innovation Prize for this development in 2007.
