Mara Laser is a business activity that for over 30 years has been examining, making and trading laser and GPS controlled laser levellers, turning towards buyers in about 30 states all over the world.
Thanks to GPS and laser control technologies, we can reach important results in many sectors of utility: from agricultural soil to sport facilities, from building constructions to road excavations, from landscaping to soil scraping.
Mara’s levellers ensure a series of returns and high productivity in more than one situations: from the machine functioning velocity, to a total trustworthiness and assurance of the result.
The technology used by Mara is what makes it unique, and the results obtained all over the world testify this. Laser and GPS receiver technologies provide 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 the elements of the laser control system for levelling.
The transmitter is placed on a tripod that sees the natural tilt of the soil and communicates the signal to the receiver, which is instead mounted on the machine itself.
The laser beam, beacuse of its own characteristics, permits very high accuracy even over long sections of land. After getting the signal, a technologically perfectioned rotating pentaprism, mounted on these machines, gives back an ideal pianification for the leveller to follow while functioning.
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 poor or it goes through interference.
On the laser levelling machine, besides, there is a control system to remove external interference. It lowers wind sound, automatically reaches the signal and regulates the power of the tractor.
GPS receiver technology
GPS technology, after all, 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 pianification is represented by the signal and reproduced on the soil.
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 minor accuracy than laser technology: GPS systems are subject to fluctuations beacuse of the periodic change of constellation of the satellites.
In any case, the minor 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 agricultural soil and building constructions.
Integrated laser + GPS system
Mara Laser has produced and made an integrated system that adds 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 precise spot of the leveller. Hence, 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 soil permits to highlight the land portions that has to be scraped, the loading areas, the point where to start, and the best way that allows to do the greatest job possible, with both the tractor and the leveller in the right position.
Hence, the operator will have instant 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 ensure their use in more than one areas:
- Laser levelling machines for agriculture:
Mara’s laser levellers, among the many plus ensure a important increase of the arable land portions. 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 an absolute perfect precision to obtain ground floors with very reduced deflections (max 4 mm) and to remove cavities and gaps that would, later, be filled with concrete. The decrease of work times and the possibility of obtaining an absolute perfect slope for water to flow down, are other plus that make these machines incomparable and priceless in this areas.
- Laser levelling machines for earth-moving:
the first-rate performance of the Mara levellers permits to move large quantity 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 achieved.
- Laser levelling machine for sportsground:
this type of technology can be utilized very well in this area as it makes possible to level even existing sectors, repairing slope without replacing the lawn.
- Laser levelling machines for greenhouses:
thanks to the accuracy, reduced 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 ensured.
- Laser grader machines for roads:
in this area, important results are achieved thanks to the capacity of the Mara’s laser graders to provide the same job as the motor grader, with minor costs and more convenient times. In addition, there are important plus, for example specialized labor is no longer necessary, besides to the fact that the use of fine materials is reduced.
