Mara Laser is a business company that for over 30 years has been analyzing, producing and marketing laser and GPS controlled laser levellers, calling on clients in about 30 nations all over the world.
Thanks to GPS and laser control technologies, we can get to significant results in different areas of utility: from agricoltural ground to sport facilities, from building constructions to road excavations, from landscaping to ground scraping.
Mara’s levellers ensure a series of returns and high capacity in more than one situations: from the machine running speed regime, to a total affidability and guarantee of the final success.
The technology used by Mara is what makes it unique, and the results acquired all over the world witness this. Laser and GPS receiver technologies give an unique performance, mostly when they are used together.
Laser technology is applied to the levellers in a way that continually 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 placed on a tripod that sees the natural tilt of the soil and sends the signal to the receiver, which is instead put on the machine itself.
The laser beam, beacuse of its internal characteristics, enables very high accuracy even over long sections of land. After picking up the signal, a technologically perfectioned rotating pentaprism, put on these machines, gives back an ideal program for the leveller to follow while running.
The receiver also has an important role, because it correctly reads the laser light received from the transmitter, through special photodiodes. The receivers, made by Mara Laser, guarantee the levellers will be able to work on any kind of soil and receive the 360° signal, even if it could be low or experiences interference.
On the laser levelling machine, besides, there is a control system to annul external interference. It decreases wind sound, automatically intercepts the signal and regulates the power of the tractor.
GPS receiver technology
GPS technology, after all, is used to set 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.
Lately, thanks to technological advancement and the use of dedicated software, an accuracy of ± 10 mm has been obtained, 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 portions with more than one inclinations, such as agricoltural ground and building constructions.
Integrated laser + GPS system
Mara Laser has produced and made an integrated system that matches the precision of laser technology with the potential of GPS, proper for tough soil.
The higher accuracy of the laser signal lays out the plan within a radius of 1300 meters, while the GPS system communicates the location of the leveller. Therefor, the Mara system can set the height of the tractor leveller and the location of the blade itself.
The creation of the 3D map of the soil enables to highlight the land portions that has to be scraped, the loading areas, the point where to start, and the best way that enables to make the best work possible, with both the tractor and the leveller in the right position.
Therefor, 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 made by Mara Laser assure their use in more than one fields:
- Laser levelling machines for agriculture:
Mara’s laser levellers, among the different plus assure a key increase of the arable land portions. They permits a reduction in the amount of water used, they can provide more abundant harvest, a considerable reduction of chemicals used, as well as seeds. The decrease in work hours, furthermore, makes the use of these machines a sure investment.
- Laser levelling machines for construction:
Mara Laser provides an absolute perfect precision to obtain ground floors with very contained deflections (max 4 mm) and to annul cavities and gaps that would, later, be filled with concrete. The decrease of work hours and the possibility of obtaining an absolute perfect slope for water to flow down, are other plus that make these machines priceless and priceless in this fields.
- Laser levelling machines for earth-moving:
the fine performance of the Mara levellers enables to move large amount of soil very quickly and with low power. In this way, shorter work hours, 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 area as it enables to level even existing areas, repairing soil depressions without replacing the lawn.
- Laser levelling machines for greenhouses:
thanks to the accuracy, contained size and easy handling of Mara laser levellers, it is also feasible to work for the maintenance of green spaces. In this way, the right tilt and also a fabulous aesthetic result are secured.
- Laser grader machines for roads:
in this area, important results are gained thanks to the skills of the Mara’s laser graders to perform 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, besides to the fact that the use of fine materials is reduced.
