Hamar Laser Releases A-1700 Roll-Leveling Kit

High-accuracy electronic level works with Hamar Laser’s L-742 & L-732 laser systems to streamline roll alignments

November 20, 2020

Hamar Laser Instruments has released its new A-1700 Roll-Leveling Kit. The A-1700 is an accessory kit designed to be used with the company’s L-742 and L-732 Dual Scan® Roll Alignment Systems. It comes with an easy-to-use, high-accuracy electronic level that transmits data wirelessly to Hamar’s R-1357-2.4ZB PDA Display.

“Our A-1700 Roll-Leveling Kit makes accurate roll alignment easier and faster,” said Rod Hamar, President of Hamar Laser Instruments. “The A-1700 gives users the ability to quickly level rolls with a high-accuracy electronic level while using our L-742 or L-732 laser alignment systems to perform the more difficult parts of the alignment.”


“A key feature of our level,” said Hamar, “is that its data is transmitted via Bluetooth to our R-1357-2.4ZB PDA, so users can see both the vertical and horizontal axes of the roll at the same time. This greatly speeds up the alignment and simplifies the process.”

This powerful electronic level offers many benefits over conventional leveling devices:

  • High accuracy — Up to 5x higher than standard levels, with a resolution of .0002 in/ft (0.02 mm/m or 0.001°).
  • Digital values — Provides digital values that don’t need to be interpreted, like reading the edge of a bubble.
  • “Eyes-off” operation — Users don’t need to be looking down on the level to get the data, which can be very difficult in tight spaces and high elevations.
  • Real-time data — Data are displayed in real time, so it’s easy to see when the rolls are aligned.
  • Wireless transmission — Wireless up to 30 feet means users don’t have to be near the level to get data, making adjustments easier.

The A-1700 Roll-Leveling Kit includes a v-block type mounting base for rolls from 2 to 24+ inches (51-610+ mm) in diameter, and a safety strap to prevent the electronic level from falling off rolls during alignments. The A-1700 can be purchased as part of L-742 and L-732 Dual Scan® Roll Alignment System packages, or separately.

" I’m a field vibration analyst with CMS, a company that provides full-service PM support. The [X-990] is the best shaft alignment system I’ve ever used, and I’ve used it to align everything from extremely small pumps to large pumps for power plants. There’s a lot I like about Hamar’s [X-990]: You can leave the heads in one position and make the vertical and horizontal moves, a big time-saving feature. It’s extremely accurate, transmits alignment data wirelessly using Bluetooth and has a very intuitive, easy-to-use software package [Couple6]. It incorporates ambient lighting correction and has a sun filter for outdoor jobs, and it uses a PC tablet instead of a dedicated display. This tool makes us really shine as reliability pros. We’ve been very happy with Hamar Laser and the [X-990]!"
