A Brief About Applied Resolution Technologies

Applied Resolution Technologies has been developing and manufacturing specialized tough laser systems in Australia since 1991.  The products outlined in this web site include a broad variety of systems used in mining, therapy, agriculture and industry.

Lasers for the mining industry are made tough because they need to be.  Available as IECEx Certified products for underground coal mining, or as standard un-Certified products for hard-rock mining, the ART mining lasers are designed to be used with convenient removable battery modules and can be supplied with mounting and adjustment brackets to suit site requirements.  Available with either green or red laser outputs, the ART laser systems are optimized for performance and stability, while maintaining alignment in the roughest environments.

As an industry expert in laser safety for industry, especially the mining sector, we provide laser safety training and advise the industry of laser safety concerns when identified.

A variant of the IECEx Certified lasers is available for testing of fibre optic cables  hazardous environments, even revealing points of loss or breaks using visible laser scattering.

Applied Resolution Technologies VLX-635 fencing alignment systems have been manufactured since 2006, and supplied to many productive fencing contractors and vineyards.  The laser system allows one-person setup to reduce the cost of fencing jobs, and provides a live alignment reference that is useful for up to 500 metres in either direction.

In recent years, ART has embraced emerging technologies to advance laser applications where possible,  with Low Energy Bluetooth control of veterinary therapy lasers and Android APPs that record every treatment parameter.  Including infrared thermography into the APP expands laser therapy to identification of treatment sites, and potential verification of treatment efficiency.

Our business activities revolve around responding to the needs of our clients, and identifying new applications where our expertise can be applied to fill a gap in laser applications for industry.  We continue development of new products and improvement of our long-standing systems……continual improvement is a key driver for quality products under our Quality Management System.  The SLX-635P laser for mining, for example, has been continuously manufactured since 1994, but is always undergoing improvement and evolution.

Being in business since 1991 is testament to our product quality.

In our documents you will see the logo as displayed to the left.  This is the registered logo of IECEx, a Division of the IEC.  ART has its intrinsically safe products Certified under the IECEx Scheme.  Details of our Certification can be viewed at www.iecex.com.  Our Quality systems are annually audited under this scheme to be compliant with both IECEx and ISO9001.
Our Certification documents are available for download below.


Recent activities for ART have evolved from development we were doing towards mining automation.  COVID-19 has presented everyone with new challenges, ours has been to adapt technology we were establishing for underground mine sensing and automation, and apply it to contact tracing and facility management.

Traci is an innovative use of IoT technologies, couple with unique and smart product design that allows Traci to morph from a wearable to a fixed venue device.  Traci is so adaptable that once COVID-19 is history, if ever, Traci devices can be recycled into agricultural, industrial or domestic sensors.

In fact, Traci has been developed with adaptation in mind, and the processes established will enable ART to return to the original mining sensing and automation processes with the product already developed.
