BrandSafway’s BrandTech Precision Layout System Provides Laser-Guided Technology for Improved Accuracy

June 28, 2022
The U.S.-made system can be used in two ways: static mount or gun mount.

BrandSafway is announcing the launch of BrandTech Precision Layout, a new, innovative welding solution, which uses laser-guided technology to improve accuracy and reduce layout time by up to 75 percent.

The system automates the anchor layout process with precision, increasing productivity, while reducing costs. The anchor layout system yields significant time savings, which eliminates entire shifts on major outages, especially when combined with BrandTech Precision Welding, the manufacturer says.

“Operators can locate just two reference points and start welding immediately,” said Lance Zier, BrandSafway’s director of refractory operations. “BrandTech Precision Layout is the first and only laser layout system available for refractory anchors. It completely eliminates the need for inefficient chalk and string, tape measures and templates – the laser technology does all the setup work.”

The U.S.-made system can be used in two ways: static mount or gun mount. The stand-alone static mount unit can lay out square grids of any standard or custom layouts. Operators can change the distance between points simply by moving the laser system closer or farther from the surface.

“The static mount option is ideal for use in heaters, boilers and fabrication shops and can be positioned using a tripod or magnet or it can be clamped to the legs of a scaffold,” said Eduardo Almeida, BrandTech’s director of innovation. “Of course, BrandSafway also can design custom clamping systems, if needed.”

The gun-mount option can be attached to the BrandTech Precision Welding gun and is used for reaching tight spaces and complex welds, such as Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units, cyclones and standpipes.
