Mara Laser is a business activity that for 30 years and more has been analyzing, producing and trading laser and GPS controlled laser levelling machines, calling on buyers in about 30 nations all over the world.
Thanks to GPS and laser control technologies, it is feasible to achieve important results in many 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 advantages and high productivity in more than one situations: from the machine running velocity, to a total affidability and assurance of the result.
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 provide an unique performance, in particular 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 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 gradient of the soil and communicates the signal to the receiver, which is instead located on the machine itself.
The laser beam, as it is one of its own characteristics, permits very high preciseness even over long sections of land. After getting the signal, a technologically perfectioned rotating pentaprism, located on these machines, gives back an ideal pianification for the leveller to follow while running.
The receiver also plays a very important part, 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 type fo ground and receive the 360° signal, even though it could be low or it goes through interference.
On the laser levelling machine, also, there is a control system to annul external interference. It lowers wind sound, automatically intercepts the signal and regulates the power of the tractor.
GPS system technology
GPS technology, after all, is used to settle the position of the laser levelling machine and the height of the blade.
The levellers, that implement 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.
Nowadays, thanks to technological advancement and the use of dedicated software, an accuracy of ± 10 mm has been obtained, even though this technology offers minor 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 minor preciseness is compensated by the wide elasticity of use, in particular when this technology is used to work on large land sections with more than one inclinations, such as agricoltural ground 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, suitable for tough soil.
The higher preciseness of the laser signal shows the plan within a radius of 1300 meters, while the GPS system communicates the location of the leveller. Thus, 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 permits to highlight the land sections that has to be scraped, the loading areas, the starting point, and the best way that allows to do the greatest job possible, with both the tractor and the leveller in the right position.
Thus, the operator will have prompt instructions through the constant updating of the data by the system.
Fields of application
The important preciseness and elasticity of the levellers made by Mara Laser secure their use in more than one fields:
- Laser levelling machines for agriculture:
Mara’s laser levellers, among the many plus secure 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 less use of chemicals, as well as seeds. The lowering in work hours, besides, 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 lowering of work hours and the possibility of obtaining an absolute perfect inclinatoin for water to flow down, are other plus that make these machines incomparable and incomparable in this fields.
- Laser levelling machines for earth-moving:
the fine performance of the Mara levellers permits to move large quantity 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 gradient, are attained.
- 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 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 gradient and also a fabulous aesthetic result are secured.
- Laser grader machines for roads:
in this area, important results are attained thanks to the capability 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 key plus, for example specialized labor is no longer needed, besides to the fact that the use of fine materials is reduced.
