Level-Ice Every time.
Literally take all the guess work out of producing a perfect level sheet of Ice.
Simple to install. Simple to use. Let's the operator focus on driving.
The Level-Ice Laser Leveling System will automatically control the cutting blade of the conditioner to achieve an accurate, level ice surface. The system can be installed on all ice resurfacing machines.
Level-Ice literally takes all the guess work out of producing a perfectly level sheet of ice. The laser controlled ice leveling system provides accurate reference point to within 0.5mm. Using the most advanced receiver technology the system controls the cutting blade of the conditioner to give your ice a perfectly level surface after every flood. See images below for details.
The Level-Ice transmitter emits a safe low power laser beam of light. This laser produces the reference ceiling of light, which is the level reference point for calculating the deviations in the ice surface. The receiver tracks the beam of light through the 4 inch (105mm) receiving window to an accuracy of 0.02 inches (0.5mm).
BLADE DRIVE MOTOR
The blade drive motor takes the place of the familiar crank handle. It is an electric drive system controlled by the display box and the laser light and can move at ¼ mm increments at a very rapid speed. Much faster than manual control.
The Level-Ice system eliminates the variable results achieved by different operators. Programmed settings maintain a minimum and maximum cut standard which can be controlled by one user, allowing a consistent resurfacing from the entire ice maintenance team.
Level Ice provides consistent leveling of ice while eliminating operator error.
Originally developed by Latec Instruments Inc., Level-Ice was a segmented line of products for Ice Recreational markets. In 2011, Latec registered the Level-Ice brand to increase specialized service to the growing market. We focus on delivering precision laser-focused leveling systems and tailored ice resurfacing equipment. Advanced receiver technology enables the system to control the cutting blade, based on the variable ice thickness detected while resurfacing. The Level-Ice Laser Leveling System provides a superior ice surface in less time with less labor. With cutting edge features, Level-Ice provides the highest quality product and greatest efficiencies for your ice surface all the time.
Level Ice reduces operating costs, maintenance time and extends blade life by approximately 50%
"It's going to save time, money and labor. The players say they notice the difference - they can skate easier and puck moves easily."
"Wouldn't own another machine without it"
"We knew how much ice we had, but didn't know if it was flat. The laser tells me the thickness and automatically adjusts the blade down to cut the ice and levels the ice to one inch from one end to the other. Having the system allows me to know that the ice is level at all times, providing a great sheet of ice for the Hurricanes. The ice is perfectly flat to five-thousandths of an inch, all over the sheet."
"A recent year long study at Family Ice Center shows an overall operating cost reduction of $21,500 during its first year of use, while allowing the facility to sell hours it once allocated for ice maintenance. Rinks using the laser system are able to raise ice temp set points anywhere from one to two degrees during normal operation, resulting in reduced compressor runtime."
Smart Slider 3 is the best slider that i’ve tried so far. There’s so many useful functions and easy to understand how to use it.
"Improved ice conditions and reduced maintenance costs - the innovation leads to better ice and energy savings. For me, it's the ultimate. Ice maintenance is so much easier to control; it creates consistent ice. Before we would go out and measure - we couldn't keep it consistent."
"Since having the 'Level-Ice' Laser System installed on our ice resurfacers, keeping our NHL ice at optimum and level surface has been very manageable and easy to maintain. Bye-bye hand crank, hello 'Level-Ice'"
