The company is also proud to represent major organisations in the building, surveying and construction sectors. Selected products include levelling and pipe lasers and accessories, radio communications, survey equipment, laser range-finders and electronic distance-measuring devices.
An extensive set of facilities includes a well equipped-showroom for the convenience of customers, along with a service centre specialising in repairs of laser, optical and surveying products.
More than 15 years ago, Laser Services developed a compact alignment laser for use in underground mines. The company's MTL-1-RL mining laser is considered by many to be the original 'laser in the wall' used for direction in underground tunnelling.
Units feature rugged stainless-steel construction with fast, accurate and repeatable results that ensure genuine cost savings for mining companies as a result of a decrease in survey field time and associated office work. The company has gone on to design and manufacture a range of lasers.
The MTL-1-SL series mining laser is an underground laser used in heading alignment. This product has evolved over the last 14 years and is used extensively throughout underground mines in Australia.
The strength and simplicity of this system has proven itself over the years and has been known to reduce the need for underground survey time by 50% as the surveyor is only needed for direction change alignment or a new laser station.
Battery-operated, small in size and easy to use, this MTL laser will increase production through less downtime waiting for a heading reference and less alignment hours.
Laser Services' MTL-1-XL is an extra long-range laser which gives a 30mm spot at 500m range, meaning the MTL-1-XL gives the smallest laser spot in its class.
In good conditions this laser is even useable at up to 600m. Mounting is done by glueing the plastic sleeve into the wall in the same way as the SL and RL series. The XL is ideal for long-range alignment where the laser needs to be removed after use.
After the surveyor has mounted the laser, alignment can be performed by non-survey personnel, resulting in a reduction in production downtime.
The MTL1-SL uses the same laser diode and low divergent optics as the MTL1-LR but the main body area, where the batteries are held, has been trimmed to just 12.2mm diameter, making it a slimline option for mine sites.
Despite its design, there is no loss of structural strength. Slimmer AAAA, or Quad-A alkaline batteries are used as a power source which mean a slightly reduced operating time but produce a more user-friendly, lightweight device. As a result, a hole of just 18mm needs to be drilled, as compared to a 24 mm hole for the MTL1-LR.
As well as manufacturing and selling laser equipment and accessories, Laser services can arrange the hire of its equipment for your small or large-scale project. A range of lasers and sensory equipment is available to choose from to help your operation run smoothly. The company offers further products and services including:
