Development, production and worldwide distribution of machines and equipment used to install elastic floor coverings are some of Leister's core competencies. The battery-powered GROOVER 500-LP joint milling machine and the UNIFLOOR E and UNIFLOOR 500 automatic floor welding machines have inspired Swiss, floor installers Werner, Mischa and Sascha Morf. At the time of this interview, they were working on school building renovations in Zurich. You can read more about them in this blog post, as we were allowed to look over their shoulder at work.
The school that Sascha and Mischa installed the resilient flooring in is located in Zurich Höngg. It is a beautiful, wooden building and already looks finished from the outside. Inside, not much is missing.
Sascha and Mischa laid the gray-black linoleum floor from the Swiss brand, Forbo, on the second floor of the school building in Zurich Höngg. The picture shows Mischa Morf pressing firmly with a roller on the linoleum sheet so that the covering was nice and smooth (an essential prerequisite for joint milling). Sascha Morf then used the battery-powered GROOVER 500-LP joint milling machine to mill a joint directly at the edge where the linoleum sheets met. This joint is then sealed with welding rod by one of the two Leister automatic floor welding machines: UNIFLOOR E or UNIFLOOR 500.
Silvan Horand had brought in the new UNIFLOOR 500 for this purpose and explained how the new Leister automatic floor welding machine works to Sascha. It didn't take long since Sascha is a flooring professional and the UNIFLOOR 500 is easy to operate.
