As ‘solutioneers’, our job is to address customers’ unique process challenges – and we’ve not been beaten yet! We have helped advance the capabilities and productivity of many worldwide customers delivering solutions where others simply can’t.

Container Handling by ALS Mechatronics

Container Handling

Any material, size or shape from box assembly and crate cleaning to bagging/debagging, palletising and stacking.

Control Systems

Our vast control systems capabilities range from small single drive control boxes to large-scale plant control / SCADA systems – we can even engineer to enable control and performance updates to your mobile device. You can even run machinery start-ups ahead of staff being onsite.

Vision Inspection

Vision Inspection

From basic ‘vision sensors’ to 1000 parts-per-minute measuring and inspection systems and barcode scanners.

Robotics by ALS Mechatronics


Advancing automation with Robotics enables reduced labour costs, greater productivity and streamlining.

Conveyors by ALS Controls


Any size, any application for any industry, either stand alone or part of a larger automation project. We can do rope, cable, slat top, belt, roller, eagle rope, mat-top chain, stainless steel for wash-down and many others – all manufactured to the highest standards.

Impossible is an Opinion

“Our customers choose us because we’re not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom. We love it when we hear ‘it can’t be done’ because, invariably we can make it happen!”

Industry Sectors.
