BIG KAISER, a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metalworking industries, launched the Level Master, a portable two-axis electronic leveling tool for fast high-precision machine setup.

The Level Master simultaneously detects the level on both horizontal axes. This drastically cuts the time and costs associated with the traditional ‘eye-splitting’ bubble leveling method, which requires two levelers to be used side-by-side. With this new device, inclination is shown by easy-to-read color status LEDs, and a buzzer indicates when the horizontal plane is level. Service and maintenance staff can now focus on leveling the tool instead of watching two spirit levels; the ability to quickly verify the precision of existing setups is an additional bonus.

As accurate as a laser leveler, the Level Master utilizes state-of-the-art optical level sensor technology to deliver ultra-high setting precision of 0.01mm (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.

Compared to a laser leveler, the Level Master is substantially cheaper, more portable, and sets up within seconds. The convenient ‘self-calibration’ feature enables the customer to calibrate on-site, which further adds to its functionality: saves both time and money, while guaranteeing consistent accuracy.

“It’s all about confidence. Service and maintenance staff now have a fast and accurate method for ensuring that machining tools are precisely level,” says Giampaolo Roccatello, VP Sales at BIG KAISER. “The Level Master saves valuable time, reduces setup 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’s operating temperature range is from 0° to 40°C. Easily portable with an external diameter of 109mm, a height of 46mm, and a weight of only 985g, the Level Master is packaged in a heavy-duty aluminum case for optimal protection in factory floor conditions.

The Level Master’s nominal battery lifetime of 50 hours (4x AAA) combined with its auto shut off function provides service and maintenance staff with several weeks, possibly months, of operation.
