RUGBY, the first new product from Laser Alignment by Leica Geosystems, is available worldwide.

The RUGBY 100 is an automatic self-leveling laser for general construction. According to Kurt Schibli, President of Laser Alignment, “The RUGBY 100 is designed for rugged yet easy use, and can make quick work of concrete forming, pad placement and framework, setting foundation and footings, as well as elevation indication for heavy equipment.” The RUGBY 100 automatically levels very quickly, has a simple four-switch keypad that controls all the functions, plus a low-battery indicator.

The RUGBY 100 debuted at the Batimat Trade Show in Paris in November 2001. It also was shown at the World of Concrete in New Orleans in January 2002. The Rugby 100 has received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from both Dealers and Customers at these shows. The co-molded housing of high-impact plastic and rubber is as rugged as it looks. RUGBY is the first Laser Alignment product to use the Leica Innovation Process, an award-winning process designed to ensure that new products meets customer needs.
