Hamar Laser’s L-741 Ultra-Precision Leveling and Plumb Laser System is an entry-level leveling and squaring tool that is part of a line of more affordable, yet highly versatile and accurate alignment systems designed to quickly measure and correct machine geometry errors with minimal setup. The L-741 features an ultra-flat, automatically rotating laser plane and a perpendicular plumb laser that allows the squareness of even the tallest machines to be easily checked. This laser can also be used to check bore squareness to its flange or bore parallelism.

The L-741 Ultra-Precision Levelscan® leveling and squaring laser is part of a line of more affordable, yet highly versatile and accurate machine alignment systems designed to quickly measure and correct machine geometry errors with minimal setup. An entry-level laser alignment system, the L-741 quickly finds and fixes flatness and squareness/plumb errors of most high-accuracy machine tools and other alignment applications.
One of the critical components of any laser alignment system is the straightness or surface flatness of the laser beam or plane, as this is the reference from which the measurements are made.
The L-741 features the flattest laser plane in the world. Its continuously rotating laser plane is flat to 1/2 an arc second (0.00003 in/ft or 0.002 mm/m) in a 360º sweep and 1/4 arcsec in a 90º sweep (0.000015 in/ft or 0.001 mm/m).
It also features a plumb laser that is square to the laser plane to within 1 arc second (0.00006 in/ft or 0.005 mm/m). This plumb laser can be projected out 100 ft (30.5 M), allowing squareness of even the tallest machine in the world to be easily checked. The L-741 laser alignment system also features 2 built-in level vials that are accurate to 1 arc second.
Another critical component of laser alignment systems is the resolution of the targets. This determines how close the measurements can be made.
The L-741 laser alignment system utilizes our new line of wireless targets (A-1519-2.4ZB and A-1520-2.4ZB) that feature up to 0.00002 in. (0.0005 mm) resolution, large measuring ranges of up to 1 in. (25 mm) and an 2.4 GHz “Zigbee” radio communication with our R-1356-2.4ZB Ruggedized Nomad PDA, which can simultaneously display up to 5 targets.
These targets are all powered by rechargeable batteries, are lightweight and can be used as digital height gages when used with precision inserts. And like all Hamar Laser alignment systems, the targets provide live alignment data so misalignment errors can be fixed without changing the setup!
For applications with tolerances of 0.00002 in/ft or 0.0017 mm/m or higher, the L-741’s applications include:
For wireless recording and analyzing laser alignment system data, our color, 3-D surface 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.
