Ligchine Introduces SpiderScreed™ Series for Upper Deck Applications

January 22, 2019

Ligchine International, a global leader in innovative laser and 3D GPS/LPS guided concrete screeds, today introduced the SpiderScreed™ Series – a compact, lightweight and maneuverable drive-in system designed for upper deck concrete and slab-on-grade screeding applications. The first SpiderScreed™ machine was unveiled to the public earlier today in Las Vegas at the company’s booth at the World of Concrete 2019.

The drive-in SpiderScreed™ machine was designed to be lightweight and powerful, featuring a 100% TIG welded tubular aluminum cage design that keeps overall weight down to approximately 1,100 lbs. (500kg). Its patent pending 3-wheel Versa-Drive system offers all-wheel drive, independent zero turn drive, up to 90° horizontal drive, and lateral drive. It offers the industry’s best power to weight ratio (55 lbs. (25kg) per horsepower), allowing lower slumps and cooler running at all times. It also incorporates Ligchine’s patented machine leveling system to insure flatter floors and greater compaction than simple screed head only leveling systems.

Walmart Demands FLAT Floors – Ligchine Delivers!

September 17, 2018

Rarely does a week go by that our ScreedSaver machines aren’t on a Walmart floor somewhere in the world. Walmart set the standards years ago for flat floors demanding “super flat” for their facilities. They measure every floor for compliance with independent consultants.

Our BOSS 240 machine recently placed a floor for a new Walmart store in Houston, TX. Walmart hired two consultants to measure our floors. Our FL numbers ranged from 63 to 72 for the three days of screeding.

All Ligchine Screed machines are capable of achieving these flatness numbers, day in and day out, in “normal” operating mode. Higher FL numbers can be achieved by slowing down the boom return and/or increasing the overlap.

THE LIGCHINE CHALLENGE:

  • Social Media constantly has people claiming high FL numbers on floors, often using lower end screeds than our boom machines. Before you accept their claims, please contact the publisher and ask them to share the independent test report with you. Our experience has been the data is never available to share. Makes you wonder...
