  • The laser distance meter is used for accurately determining the distance of an object or span without contact by way of a laser. The basic measuring principle is based on measuring the transit time of laser pulses between the laser distance meter and the object to be measured.
  • Plane table board
  • A plane table is a device used in surveying site mapping, exploration mapping, coastal navigation mapping, and related disciplines to provide a solid and level surface on which to make field drawings, charts and maps.

  • Plane table stand
  • A plane table is set over a point and brought to precise horizontal level. A drawing sheet is attached to the surface and an alidade is used to sight objects of interest.





  • Plain Alidade
  • The alidade is used for determining the directions of objects and is commonly deployed in detailed survey especially plane table, mapping


  • Spirit level
  • This equipment is sensitive, and it's used to level the table by placing it in two positions at right angles of each other and setting the drawing board so the bubble is evenly centered.
  • Trough Compass
  • The trough compass is used for marking the magnetic north line on the drawing sheet of the plane table.




  • Plumbing fork
  • Plumbing fork with a plumb bob is used in large scale surveying for Centring of plane table and for Transferring of ground point.



  • Plumb bob
  • A plumb bob is a weight with a pointed tip on the bottom that's hung from a string, and it's used to establish a vertical reference (called a plumb line).


  • Prismatic compass
  • A prismatic compass is a navigation and surveying instrument which is extensively used to find out the bearing of the traversing and included angles between them, waypoints (an endpoint of the lcourse) and direction
  • Surveyor's compass
  • surveyor's compass, is an instrument used in surveying to measure horizontal angles . A circumferentor consists of a circular brass box containing a magnetic needle, which moves freely over a brass circle, or compass divided into 360 degrees
  • levelling staff(4m) - wooden and alluminium
  • A level staff, also called levelling rod, is a graduated wooden or aluminium rod, used with a levelling instrument to determine the difference in height between points or heights of points above a vertical datum.
  • open cross- staff
  • Type of cross-staff which is also used to set out 90 degree
  • French cross staff
  • Used to set out either 45° or 90°
  • Steel Ranging rod 3m
  • A ranging rod (or range rod) is a surveying instrument used for marking the position of stations, and for sightings of those stations, as well as for ranging straight lines.


  • Iron arrow
  • Arrows in surveying are the marking pins that are mostly used in the chain surveying. They are used to mark the end of the chain length; if the length of the line to be measured is more than a chain length..
  • Chain metric (30m)
  • Metric chains are made in lengths 20m and 30m. Tallies are fixed at every five-meter length and brass rings are provided at every meter length except where tallies are attached.
  • Engineer's Chain(100')
  • A surveyor's measuring instrument consisting of 1-foot (30.48-centimeter) steel links joined together by rings, 100 feet (30.5 meters) or 50 feet (15.25 meters) long
  • Optical square
  • The optical square uses a to reflect and refract a beam or sighting 90 degrees, it is used in pairs in surveying and in a singular block in metrology.
  • Planimeter
  • A planimeter, also known as a platometer, is a measuring instrument used to determine the area of an arbitrary two-dimensional shape.
  • Abney clinometer
  • is an instrument used in surveying which consists of a fixed sighting tube, a movable spirit level that is connected to a pointing arm, and a protractor scale. By using trigonometry the user of an Abney level can determine height, volume, and grade.
  • Hand level
  • A hand level is a tool used for 'rough leveling' – that is, estimation and not precision. ... The device is generally used by grading contractors and land surveyors to compare multiple points against a reference point to get approximations of level or distance.
  • Tangent Clinometer
  • This is a very handy and useful instrument used mostly along with a plane table. It measures angle of elevation or depression and their tangents.
  • Sextant
  • Sextant, instrument for determining the angle between the horizon and a celestial body such as the Sun, the Moon, or a star, used in celestial navigation to determine latitude and longitude
  • Pentagraph
  • Pantograph, instrument for duplicating a motion or copying a geometric shape to a reduced or enlarged scale.
  • Ediograph
  • This Eidograph is an mechanical plotting instrument used to redraw maps at a smaller or larger scale. It has the same function as a pantograph
  • Fiber / steel Measuring Tape -50m,30m 20, 10m
  • A tape measure or measuring tape is a flexible ruler used to measure size or distance. It consists of a ribbon of cloth, plastic, fibre glass, or metal strip with linear-measurement markings. It is a common measuring tool


  • Digital balance
  • A digital balance is used to weigh ingredients in a laboratory. When a weight is applied to the digital balance, an electronic circuit generates a current which is then converted into a digital readout on the display.
  • Physical balance
  • A physical balance is simply a weight measuring instrument. It is used to measure the weight of any unknown object with the help of the other object with known weight.
  • Slump cone
  • The slump cone test is performed for acceptance purposes, to record mixture characteristics, or as an indirect method of determining the water/cement ratio.
  • I.S. Sieve for fine aggregate and course aggregate
  • The sieve analysis determines the gradation (the distribution of aggregate particles, by size, within a given sample) in order to determine compliance with design, production control requirements, and verification specifications.
  • concrete cube mould
  • Steel Concrete Cube Molds are used to form specimens for concrete compressive strength testing.
  • cement mould
  • Steel Concrete Cube Molds are used to form specimens for cement mortar compressive strength testing.
  • material tray
  • It is used for keeping the testing material
  • vicat needle apparatus
  • Vicat apparatus is a penetration device used in testing of hydraulic cements and similar materials to determine their normal or standard consistency. It is also used to determine the initial setting time and final setting time of hydraulic cements and similar materials.
