Our colorful new Timeline tells the Hamar Laser story!

September 24, 2020

We’ve been pioneers in laser alignment since our founding in 1967 by Martin Hamar, a brilliant and enterprising Cornell-educated engineer with 29 patents to his name today. So it’s no surprise that we’re credited with many industry “firsts,” including these, to name just a few.

  • 1976 – World’s first automatically sweeping precision laser plane (Model L-711)
  • 1981 – First invisible IR diode-based bore alignment laser (L-800)
  • 1990 – First visible diode-based, 4-axis shaft alignment laser (S-640)
  • 1992 – Triple-Scan® laser with 3 automatically sweeping laser planes (L-723)
  • 1996 – Laser alignment system with both scan plane and square plumb beam (L-720)
  • 2000 – First wireless shaft alignment system in the market (S-650)

We’ve just posted a Timeline to our new website that tells the interesting story of Hamar Laser’s 53+ years of innovation and leadership in words and pictures. Check it out!

" 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]!"
