L-730 Leveling Laser Alignment System

flatness, leveling laser alignment Laser Alignment Systems for Leveling Machinery

The L-730 Leveling Laser System is the most accurate and affordable leveling laser on the market today. That is, of course, if you do not consider our L-740 Series of ultra-precision lasers.

Extremely Flat Laser Plane

One of the critical components of any laser system is the straightness or flatness of the laser beam or plane, as this is the reference from which the measurements are made.

The L-730 features a continuously rotating laser plane that is flat to 2 arc seconds (0.00012"/ft or 0.01 mm/M) in a 180° sweep and 1 arc second in a 90 sweep. It also features 2 built-in level vials, accurate to 2 arc seconds, and an operating range of range of 100 feet (30.5 meters) in radius.

Two Configurations for Many Different Applications

The L-730 Scan Laser System is ideally suited for a whole host of alignment applications. The L-730 comes in 2 configurations. The standard L-730 has a horizontal laser plane, for checking flatness and leveling. The L-730W has a vertical laser plane and is used primarily for aligning the straightness of a rail or saw.

New Line of Wireless Targets

Another critical component of laser alignment systems is the resolution of the targets. This determines how close the measurements can be made.

The L-730 system utilizes our new line of Extended-Range Universal Scan Targets (A-1532 and A-1533) that feature: 0.001" (0.025 mm) resolution, large measuring ranges of up to 3" (75 mm) and built-in readouts.

These targets are all powered by rechargeable batteries, are lightweight and can be used as digital height gages when used with precision inserts. And with the live data feature of all of our targets, the system can also fix misalignment errors without changing the setup!

The L-730 can also be used with our line of wireless targets (A-1519-2.4ZB, and A-1520-2.4ZB) that communicate with a Ruggedized Nomad PDA and A-910-2.4ZB radio receiver for a laptop.


For alignments with tolerances of 0.00015"/ft or (0.01 mm/M) or greater, the L-730's applications include:

  • Checking the flatness of almost any surface (squares, frames, ways, flanges, circles, etc.)
  • Measuring and leveling machine beds and ways, large bearing surfaces, and fabrications
  • Checking way twist and parallelism between horizontal surfaces
  • Measuring surfaces up to 200 feet (61 meters) long with 1 setup

Flatness Software

S-1388 Plane5 SoftwareFor wireless recording and analyzing alignment data, our color, 3-D flatness and squareness analysis software, Plane5, simplifies and streamlines the data analysis process. It can measure up to 7 different surfaces in one project setup file and present a color, 3-D graph of the flatness and squareness analysis for each surface.
