Mara Laser is a business activity that for 30 years and more has been examining, making and marketing laser and GPS controlled laser levellers, calling on clients in about 30 states everywhere in the world.
Thanks to GPS and laser control technologies, we can get to important results in different areas of use: from agricultural soil 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 various situations: from the machine running velocity, to a total trustworthiness and guarantee of the final success.
The technology used by Mara is what makes it unbeatable, and the results obtained all over the world testify this. Laser and GPS system technologies provide an unrivaled performance, in particular when they are combined.
Laser technology is applied to the levellers in a way that continually synchronize the height of the blade.
The laser leveller, the laser beam transmitter and the laser beam receiver are parts of the laser control system for levelling.
The transmitter is located on a tripod that examines the natural gradient of the land and communicates the signal to the receiver, which is instead located on the machine itself.
The laser beam, for its own characteristics, enables very high accuracy even over long sections of land. After obtaining the signal, a technologically perfectioned rotating pentaprism, located on these machines, gives back an ideal planning 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 move on any type fo ground and receive the 360° signal, though it could be low or it goes through interference.
On the laser leveller, moreover, there is a control system to annul external interference. It cuts wind rumble, 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 leveller and the height of the blade.
The levellers, that implement this technology, get the laser signal from the satellites: even in this situation the planning is represented by the signal and reproduced on the land.
Lately, thanks to technological progress and the use of dedicated software, an accuracy of ± 10 mm has been reached up, even though this technology offers poorer accuracy than laser technology: GPS systems are subject to fluctuations for the periodic change of constellation of the satellites.
In any case, the poorer accuracy is compensated by the wide elasticity of use, in particular when this technology is used to work on large land portions with various inclinations, such as agricultural soil and building constructions.
Integrated laser + GPS system
Mara Laser has created and made an integrated system that connects the precision of laser technology with the potential of GPS, the right one for tough land.
The higher accuracy of the laser signal lays out the plan within a radius of 1300 meters, while the GPS system communicates the precise spot of the leveller. Thus, the Mara system can regulate the height of the tractor leveller and the precise spot of the blade itself.
The creation of the 3D map of the land enables to highlight the land portions that has to be scraped, the loading areas, the section where to begin, and the best route that enables to make the best work possible, with both the tractor and the leveller in the right position.
Thus, the operator will have immediate instructions through the constant updating of the data by the system.
Fields of application
The important accuracy and elasticity of the levellers made by Mara Laser secure their use in various areas:
- Laser levelling machines for agriculture:
Mara’s laser levellers, among the different benefits secure a important increase of the arable land portions. They enable 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, moreover, 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, afterwords, 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 benefits that make these machines priceless and priceless in this areas.
- Laser levelling machines for earth-moving:
the first-rate performance of the Mara levellers enables to move large quantity 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 gradient, are attained.
- 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 areas, repairing slope 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 gradient and also a fabulous aesthetic result are assured.
- Laser grader machines for roads:
in this field, important results are attained thanks to the skills of the Mara’s laser graders to perform the same job as the motor grader, with poorer costs and more convenient times. In addition, there are important benefits, for example specialized labor is no longer necessary, on top to the fact that the use of fine materials is reduced.
