Bosch Launches Combi Laser featuring green laser beam technology

The GCL 2-15 G Professional offers 400% improved visibility thanks to the application of green laser beam technology.

The GCL 2-15 G combi laser represents the latest technological development in laser levels, comments Sebastian Johannes, Bosch Measuring Tools Brand Manager. While traditional laser levels deployed a red laser diode or green laser conversion procedure, the latest Combi Laser from Bosch uses a genuine green laser diode.


The advantages of the latest ‘green’ laser lines over the ‘red’ ones is not only reduced power consumption and hence longer battery life, but also reduced heat generation (which, in turn, increases the lifetime), and a similar operating temperature for extended work periods.

‘Green’ laser light is 100% visible to the human eye, as opposed to only 24% for traditional ‘red’ laser light. This translates into a longer working distance without a receiver, which makes the GLC 2-15 G perfect for drywall and suspended-ceiling applications

“A laser beam that is four times brighter not only makes the work at hand faster and more effective, but it also facilitates on-site problem-solving and deriving at appropriate solutions,” Johannes explains. The GCL 2-15 G also allows for faster positioning of laser lines, which renders the entire process less time-consuming and cumbersome.

The GLC 2-15 G also has red ‘up’ and ‘down’ plumb points for plumbing applications under 3 m, while a highly-visible green laser cross makes for fast horizontal and vertical levelling tasks. Extended ceiling applications are made that much easier due to the long overshoot of vertical lines.

In addition, each laser line can be switched on and off separately, while the tool also allows convenient and easy alignment of laser lines around the plumb point. A reference point can be transferred precisely from the floor to the ceiling, while a vertical laser line of almost 360° is also possible.

Additional features include high flexibility thanks to the RM 1 rotating mount for floors, walls and ceilings. Versatile mounting is enhanced further by strong magnets on the back of the rotating mount. The tool also has an incline function with LED indicator, and robust housing with IP54 protection. Safe transportation and slope stability are ensured with the handy pendulum lock function.

“The new GCL 2-15 G from Bosch, in conjunction with the RM 1 mounting tool, offers a complete laser-levelling solution for construction professionals that is guaranteed to improve productivity and accuracy for most indoor levelling applications” Johannes concludes.
