COMPANY HISTORY TIMELINE

minilablaser.com

Founded in 1994 and based in Russia, we were one of the first companies to start selling photo-processing equipment in the Russian Federation and CIS countries.
A large number (over 200 sets) of Noritsu and Fujifilm minilabs were imported from Japan.
Strong technical support and crystal clear reputation have helped us become one of the market leaders.

THE BEGINNING

Apr.1994

THE SERVICE

June 1994

The growing number of customer requirements has led us to start selling spare parts for minilabs and to create a technical support department with well-trained and highly qualified service engineers.
In sales of spare parts, we were also the first to use the idea of ​​sending spare parts directly from the supplier’s warehouse from Japan to the client’s place.
Many service centers and laboratory owners from all over the world buy spare parts for Noritsu and Fujifilm minilabs using our service.
We only sell original Japanese parts.

Our Platinum Dealer status gives us the opportunity to offer our customers very attractive prices and shorter terms.
Prices depend on the volume of the order, and even after the first order, the client receives a 5% lifetime discount on all subsequent orders.
If you want to check our prices – make a trial order and compare our service with your spare parts supplier.

Please fill out the form here to receive an offer the same or next day.

After the start of sales of digital photo laboratories, we met the needs of our customers who wanted to repair a faulty laser unit.
We decided to start accepting orders for the repair of laser units by sending them to the manufacturer’s service center in Japan for repair.
At the same time, we tried to gain experience in identifying the causes of the problems of Noritsu and Fujifilm lasers, and also tried to find methods for its treatment.

Research

Dec.2007

Until the end of 2007, in-depth laser research was completed, and this allowed us to begin developing our first laser in our design.
We began to offer our laser repair service to all our customers, and with each order we gained more and more experience in their repair and fine adjustments, since all cases were different and required all our potential.

THE BRAND “MINILABLASER.COM” WAS BORN

THE BRAND

Feb.2009

First SLD

May.2009

Our first BLUE laser based on semiconductor laser diodes was developed by our research center.
The laser had a 450 nm laser diode as the main emitting element and showed perfect stability during testing.
The new design of our laser module is called – SLD [Semiconductor Laser Diode]. I decided to stop the practice when the user had to send the entire laser unit to a service center in another country or even a continent, and proposed a completely new approach to laser repair: the user replaces the module on the spot and saves money on transportation.
This idea has been warmly accepted by our customers.
We were again the first to offer this opportunity to the community of photo finishers.
The mystical cloak over the laser replacement process was ripped off.

Several models of our new blue diodу lasers have been released to the world market. They were developed for the Fujifilm Frontier 330/340, Fujifilm Frontier 350/370/390, Fujifilm Frontier 500 and for the Noritsu QSS 30/31/32/33 minilabs. Great success and good sales. More reliable and easy to install. Having an almost plug-n-play design, these modules were the first in the world to be used on Frontiers minilabs.

The Big Game

Jan.2012

The creation of ONE universal laser for any type of Noritsu laser gave minilablaser.com a huge advantage over all competitors.
The first universal laser in the world has brought us many serious companies as our dealers.
Universal laser No. 001, manufactured in January 2012, is still operating in Russia.

MINILABLASER.COM successfully introduced three new products during its participation in the largest Photokina World exhibition in Cologne (Germany):

– 525 nm GREEN UNIVERSAL LASER FOR NORICO [SLD DESIGN]
– 460 nm BLUE UNIVERSAL LASER FOR NORICO [SLD DESIGN]
– 525 nm SLD laser for NORITSU, FUJIFILM minilabs

AGFA Laser Repair

Jan.2013

In January 2013, we started accepting orders for the upgrade of solid-state lasers (SSL) for AGFA minilabs from the outdated DPSS design to the modern SLD design on a semiconductor laser diode basis. Our AGFA SLD modules have been working great for many years in AGFA D-Lab2, D-Lab 2 Select, Netlabs and other minilabs around the world.
High quality and reasonable price – our advantage over competitors.
Many well-known service companies use our SLD modules for refurbishment of AGFA SSL laser units.
We invite all freelancers-engineers and service centers to join our net of dealers and look forward to mutually beneficial cooperation.

On March 15, 2014, we completed the final quality tests of our newly developed AOM driver with a unique standby mode and began assembling the first batch of AOM drivers. The new AOM driver received a new temperature stabilization circuit, more reliable components, a new magnetically-suspended fan and an improved design when compared with the original AOM driver made by Noritsu. The end user has the ability to enable or disable standby mode using the built-in switch. Please read more about this product here.
