Mara Laser is a business activity that for over 30 years has been analyzing, producing and trading laser and GPS controlled levellers, turning towards buyers in about 30 states everywhere in the world.
Thanks to GPS and laser control technologies, we can reach significant results in many sectors of utility: from agricultural soil to sport facilities, from building constructions to road excavations, from landscaping to ground scraping.
Mara’s levellers ensure a series of advantages and high capacity in various situations: from the machine running speed regime, to a total trustworthiness and certainty of the result.
The technology used by Mara is what makes it unique, and the results obtained all over the world are proof of this. Laser and GPS system technologies provide an unique performance, mostly when they are combined.
Laser technology is applied to the levellers in a way that without stopping synchronize the height of the blade.
The laser levelling machine, the laser beam transmitter and the laser beam receiver are parts of the laser control system for levelling.
The transmitter is put on a tripod that examines the natural tilt of the soil and sends the signal to the receiver, which is instead positioned on the machine itself.
The laser beam, beacuse of its own characteristics, permits very high accuracy even over long land portions. After obtaining the signal, a technologically perfectioned rotating pentaprism, positioned on these machines, gives back an ideal program for the leveller to follow while running.
The receiver also plays a very important part, because it correctly reads the laser light received from the transmitter, through special photodiodes. The receivers, manufactured by Mara Laser, guarantee the levellers will be able to work on any kind of soil and receive the 360° signal, even though it could be low or it is subjected to interference.
On the laser levelling machine, also, there is a control system to remove external interference. It lowers wind sound, automatically reaches the signal and settles the power of the tractor.
GPS system technology
GPS technology, however, is used to regulate the position of the laser levelling machine and the height of the blade.
The levellers, that adopt this technology, perceive the laser signal from the satellites: even in this situation the program is represented by the signal and reproduced on the soil.
Nowadays, thanks to technological advancement and the use of dedicated software, an accuracy of ± 10 mm has been reached up, even though this technology offers less accuracy than laser technology: GPS systems are subject to fluctuations beacuse of the periodic change of constellation of the satellites.
In any case, the less accuracy is compensated by the wide elasticity of use, mostly when this technology is used to work on large land sections with various inclinations, such as agricultural soil and building constructions.
Integrated laser + GPS system
Mara Laser has created and manufactured an integrated system that connects the precision of laser technology with the potential of GPS, proper for tough soil.
The higher accuracy of the laser signal shows the plan within a radius of 1300 meters, while the GPS system communicates the location of the leveller. Hence, the Mara system can regulate the height of the tractor leveller and the location of the blade itself.
The creation of the 3D map of the soil permits to highlight the land sections that has to be scraped, the loading areas, the starting point, and the best route that enables to make the best work possible, with both the tractor and the leveller in the right position.
Hence, the operator will have prompt instructions through the constant updating of the data by the system.
Fields of application
The significant accuracy and elasticity of the levellers manufactured by Mara Laser secure their use in various fields:
- Laser levelling machines for agriculture:
Mara’s laser levellers, among the many plus secure a key increase of the arable land sections. They permits a reduction in the amount of water used, they can provide more abundant harvest, a less use of chemicals, as well as seeds. The decrease in work times, furthermore, makes the use of these machines a sure investment.
- Laser levelling machines for construction:
Mara Laser gives a perfect precision to obtain ground floors with very contained deflections (max 4 mm) and to remove cavities and gaps that would, afterwords, be filled with concrete. The decrease of work times and the possibility of obtaining a perfect inclinatoin for water to flow down, are other plus that make these machines incomparable and incomparable in this fields.
- Laser levelling machines for earth-moving:
the superbe performance of the Mara levellers permits to move large amount of soil very quickly and with low power. In this way, shorter work times, lower costs and greater accuracy in creating the horizontal plan and tilt, are gained.
- Laser levelling machine for sportsground:
this type of technology can be used very well in this field as it makes possible to level even existing sectors, repairing soil depressions without replacing the lawn.
- Laser levelling machines for greenhouses:
thanks to the accuracy, contained size and easy handling of Mara levellers, it is also doable to work for the maintenance of green spaces. In this way, the right tilt and also a fabulous aesthetic result are ensured.
- Laser grader machines for roads:
in this field, important results are gained thanks to the skills of the Mara’s laser graders to provide the same job as the motor grader, with less costs and more convenient times. In addition, there are key plus, for example specialized labor is no longer necessary, on top to the fact that the use of fine materials is reduced.
