Big Kaiser’s Level Master portable 2-axis electronic levelling tool is cheaper than laser, more portable

Big Kaiser’s Level Master is a portable 2-axis electronic levelling tool for fast high precision machine set-up. It is available in the UK from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC). Compared to a laser leveller, the Level Master is substantially cheaper, more portable and it can be set up within seconds.

The Level Master from ITC simultaneously detects the level on each horizontal axis fast and easily. The new system drastically cuts the time and costs associated with the traditional 'eye-splitting' bubble levelling method, which requires two levellers to be used side-by-side.

With the new Level Master device, inclination is shown via easy-to-read colour status LEDs; a buzzer indicates when the horizontal plane is level. This development enables service and maintenance personnel to focus on levelling the machine tool instead of watching two spirit levels; the ability to quickly verify the precision of existing set-ups is an additional bonus.

As accurate as a laser leveller, the Level Master utilises state-of-the-art optical level sensor technology to deliver ultra-high setting precision of 0.01 mm (10 micron) inclination per meter. A lower precision mode with an accuracy of 0.1mm/m is also available for fast and easy rough alignment.

The convenient 'self-calibration' feature enables the customer to calibrate on-site, which further adds to its functionality as it saves both time and money while guaranteeing consistent accuracy.

Says Giampaolo Roccatello, VP sales at Big Kaiser: “It's all about confidence. Service and maintenance staff now have a fast and accurate method for ensuring that machining tools are precisely level. The Level Master saves valuable time, reduces set-up costs and significantly eliminates potential for error. With so much on the line, the Level Master is a 'must have' for any professional maintenance engineer.”

The device has an operating temperature range from 0° to 40°C, is easily portable, having an external diameter of 109 mm, a height of 46 mm and a weight of only 985 g. The Level Master is a robust unit that sits within a heavy duty aluminium case for optimal protection in factory floor conditions.

The Level Master has a nominal battery lifetime of 50 hours, using four AAA batteries. When considering the combination of its auto shut-off function, the Level Master can provide service and maintenance staff with several weeks and even months of operation.
