Ingenuity & Integrity: The Hamar Laser Story
Our company was born quietly, in a small suburban town.
As an enterprising and extremely talented young engineer employed by Perkin-Elmer, Martin Hamar helped design the world’s first laser alignment system. In 1967, intent on designing the most accurate laser alignment systems possible and marketing them with integrity, Hamar raised a modest amount of capital with the help of friends and founded the company that bears his name. Nurtured with Hamar’s determination and ingenuity, the inspired enterprise took root and grew.
Fast-forward to the present: Today, Danbury, Connecticut-based Hamar Laser Instruments manufactures laser alignment systems that address virtually any alignment challenge, from complex multi-axis, machine tool geometry applications to simple shaft alignment applications, and serves a large and highly diversified global customer base. Martin Hamar is chairman of the board, and the holder of 26 U.S. and foreign patents. His son, Rod Hamar, as president, is leading the company into the future.

So how did Hamar Laser, born a geometry company, get into shaft alignment?
In the 1990s, Martin and his team saw that a competitor had come out with a shaft alignment system that looked “okay” but which they quickly realized could be much better. So they thought: Why not apply the company’s more than 25 years of geometry know-how to common shaft alignment problems? It would be good for the customer and Hamar Laser, and it would serve industry.
Using insights gained from decades of geometry alignment experience, Hamar Laser designed and built the S-640, the first 4-axis shaft alignment system, the progenitor of the X Series™ brand. The product line grew steadily and today includes a variety of shaft alignment tools including the brand’s flagship, the X-990 5-Axis Laser Alignment System.
