Commercialising laser technology originally developed by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Actionlaser began life as a solution for improved centrifuge screening within the sugarcane and beet industry and continues to be a significant supplier in this market.
The company has since leveraged its capability within the industrial food processing sector, to service wider applications in the mining and minerals processing, petrochemicals, water treatment, pigments and powders, and pulp and paper industries.
Almost 70% of Actionlaser’s product is now exported across the Pacific, Europe, North America, Africa, and Asia.
The company remains privately Australian owned and operated, employing around 20 staff.
We have formed partnerships with, and sell direct to, OEMs and aftermarket services worldwide.
We also retain distributor licenses in Australia for Ferguson and the Sugar Research Institute (SRI), as specialist suppliers of machinery and equipment to the sugar industry.
Our manufacturing facility located in Hornsby, NSW, features seven large laser rooms incorporating the latest laser technology and utilising our proprietary laser drilling software. Our factory layout provides us with the flexibility to simultaneously setup a number of jobs, thereby reducing lead times.
Actionlaser is an ISO 9001 accredited company and believes in total quality ownership from the management team down. We have two quality control stages, first QC and final QC, both of which need to be completed prior to release of a component.
Our facility houses a dedicated R&D area to explore processes to drill both smaller and larger holes/slots and to drill longer and wider screens. Future focused R&D will explore new optics systems aimed at improving consistency and quality. We have a proud 30-year history of R&D partnering with OEMs to develop innovative process solutions. Our unique manufacturing process, where every LaserScreen is produced independently, supports incremental prototyping. This is highly beneficial for many start-ups and established companies in developing new filtration systems where screen trials are imperative.
We provide worldwide shipping and delivery direct from our manufacturing facility. Our flexible factory capacity enabling delivery of bespoke single screen orders through to larger, repeat quantities.
Founded in 1988, Actionlaser is a privately owned and operated Australian company.
The company employs around 20 staff across production, operations, business development and sales, and maintains a network of distributors in strategic locations globally.
