Our industry focus began in the flooring and construction industries providing the SL-24 Laser Square to help salesman easily determine if floors and walls were square, flat and/or level before a job was quoted. Using laser beams extending out of the unit at a 90º and 45º angles, users were able to accomplished this and also allowed for quick grid layouts for tile.
 
Lately the company has shifted its main focus has shifted towards the countertop and millwork industries. With the advent of the LT-55 XL and more recently the LT-2D3D Laser Templators, efficiency and accuracy of digital templating kitchens, offices, and cabinet bases has been greatly improved while reducing cost and completion time.
 
Having a strong and stable customer base established in the countertop industry, the company has begun shifting focus to the wood industry. Since early 2017, it has focused on making the changes to its hardware and software to improve the business process of woodworkers. www.laserproducts.com
