Mara Laser is a business activity that for over 30 years has been analyzing, producing and trading laser and GPS controlled laser levellers, calling on buyers in about 30 states all over the world.
Thanks to GPS and laser control technologies, we can get to outstanding results in different areas of use: from agricultural soil to sportsground, from building constructions to road excavations, from landscaping to ground scraping.
Mara’s levellers ensure a series of advantages and high capacity in more than one situations: from the machine operating velocity, to a total trustworthiness and certainty of the result.
The technology used by Mara is what makes it unbeatable, and the results acquired all over the world witness this. Laser and GPS receiver technologies provide an unrivaled 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 leveller, 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 examines the natural gradient of the land and sends the signal to the receiver, which is instead mounted on the machine itself.
The laser beam, as it is one of its own characteristics, enables very high accuracy even over long sections of land. After picking up the signal, a technologically perfectioned rotating pentaprism, mounted on these machines, gives back an ideal pianification for the leveller to follow while operating.
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 move on any kind of soil and receive the 360° signal, though it could be poor or it goes through interference.
On the laser leveller, moreover, there is a control system to remove external interference. It decreases wind sound, automatically intercepts the signal and settles the power of the tractor.
GPS receiver technology
GPS technology, after all, is used to regulate the position of the laser leveller and the height of the blade.
The levellers, that adopt this technology, get the laser signal from the satellites: even in this situation the pianification is defined by the signal and reproduced on the land.
Nowadays, thanks to technological progress 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 as it is one 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 more than one inclinations, such as agricultural soil and building constructions.
Integrated laser + GPS system
Mara Laser has created and manufactured an integrated system that adds the precision of laser technology with the potential of GPS, proper for tough land.
The higher accuracy of the laser signal represents the plan within a radius of 1300 meters, while the GPS system communicates the precise spot of the leveller. Therefor, 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 sections that has to be scraped, the loading areas, the point where to start, and the best route that allows to make the best work possible, with both the tractor and the leveller in the right position.
Therefor, the operator will have instant instructions through the constant updating of the data by the system.
Fields of application
The outstanding accuracy and elasticity of the levellers manufactured by Mara Laser ensure their use in more than one fields:
- Laser levelling machines for agriculture:
Mara’s laser levellers, among the different plus ensure a key increase of the arable land sections. 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 lowering in work times, moreover, 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 contained deflections (max 4 mm) and to remove cavities and gaps that would, afterwords, be filled with concrete. The lowering of work times and the possibility of obtaining an absolute perfect slope for water to flow down, are other plus that make these machines worthy 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 times, lower costs and greater accuracy in creating the horizontal plan and gradient, are gained.
- Laser levelling machine for sportsground:
this type of technology can be utilized very well in this field as it enables 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 ensured.
- Laser grader machines for roads:
in this field, important results are gained thanks to the capability 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 needed, besides to the fact that the use of fine materials is reduced.
