Mara Laser is a business activity that for over 30 years has been analyzing, making and trading laser and GPS controlled laser levelling machines, calling on clients in about 30 states everywhere in the world.
Thanks to GPS and laser control technologies, it is feasible to achieve significant results in many areas of use: from agricoltural ground 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 various situations: from the machine functioning velocity, to a total affidability and guarantee of the final success.
The technology used by Mara is what makes it unbeatable, and the results obtained all over the world are proof of this. Laser and GPS system 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 leveller, 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 examines the natural inclination of the soil and sends the signal to the receiver, which is instead positioned on the machine itself.
The laser beam, as it is one of its own characteristics, enables very high preciseness even over long land portions. After getting the signal, a technologically perfectioned rotating pentaprism, positioned 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, manufactured by Mara Laser, guarantee the levellers will be able to work on any kind of soil and receive the 360° signal, though it could be low or it is subjected to interference.
On the leveller, also, there is a control system to remove external interference. It decreases wind sound, automatically captures the signal and settles the power of the tractor.
GPS system technology
GPS technology, after all, is used to settle the position of the leveller and the height of the blade.
The levellers, that adopt this technology, obtain the laser signal from the satellites: even in this situation the pianification is defined 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 reached up, even though this technology offers less accuracy than laser technology: GPS systems are subject to fluctuations as it is one of the periodic change of constellation of the satellites.
In any case, the less preciseness is compensated by the wide elasticity of use, mostly when this technology is used to work on large parts with various inclinations, such as agricoltural ground and building constructions.
Integrated laser + GPS system
Mara Laser has produced and manufactured an integrated system that adds the precision of laser technology with the potential of GPS, the right one for tough soil.
The higher preciseness 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 settle 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 parts that has to be scraped, the loading areas, the point where to start, and the best route that allows to do the greatest job possible, with both the tractor and the leveller in the right position.
Therefor, the operator will have immediate instructions through the constant updating of the data by the system.
Fields of application
The significant preciseness and elasticity of the levellers manufactured by Mara Laser ensure their use in various areas:
- Laser levelling machines for agriculture:
Mara’s laser levellers, among the many plus ensure a key increase of the arable parts. They enable a reduction in the amount of water used, an increased production, a considerable reduction of chemicals used, as well as seeds. The decrease in work hours, besides, makes the use of these machines a sure investment.
- Laser levelling machines for construction:
Mara Laser provides a perfect precision to obtain ground floors with very contained deflections (max 4 mm) and to remove cavities and gaps that would, later, be filled with concrete. The decrease of work hours and the possibility of obtaining a perfect slope for water to flow down, are other plus that make these machines incomparable and incomparable in this areas.
- 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 preciseness in creating the horizontal plan and inclination, are reached.
- Laser levelling machine for sportsground:
this type of technology can be utilized 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 preciseness, contained size and easy handling of Mara laser levelling machines, it is also doable to work for the maintenance of green spaces. In this way, the right inclination and also a great aesthetic result are secured.
- Laser grader machines for roads:
in this field, important results are reached 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 needed, on top to the fact that the use of fine materials is reduced.
