Cross Web Series Laser Scoring Machine

Multi-Directional Laser Processing

Preco Cross Web Series laser systems utilize high speed directed beam technology to create contour and cross web scoring and perforating at web speeds up to 457 m/min (1,500 ft/min) depending on print repeat distance and film type.

Cross-Web systems provide scoring and perforating of materials in the cross-web direction. This processing provides easy-open/easy-tear capability on materials for vertical form, fill and seal machines. Contour systems produce continuous scoring in a non-linear pattern along a web direction.

Applications

  • Scoring for Easy-Opening
  • Shape Scoring for promotional items, pour spouts and product tampering
  • Perforating for venting and burst protection

Capabilities

  • Laser Scoring
  • Laser Micro-Perforating
  • Laser Slitting

Materials

  • Plastic Films
  • Polyester
  • Polyethylene
  • Polypropylene
  • EVOH
  • Nylon
  • Laminations
  • Foils
  • PLA

Features & Benefits

Eliminates inconsistencies of knives and mechanical perforators

Process a variety of packaging materials ranging in thickness to 12 mil.

Consistent depth and uniformity of score line. Repeatable strength and tear quality.

Laser systems operate as stand alone units or can be integrated into an existing production line

Eliminates scrap caused by overpowering of material at slower than normal processing speeds.

Easy to use Windows® based software enables adjustable score depths and perforation hole size and spacing.

Registers eyespots before processing and aligns process pattern and process spacing

Precision control of laser energy, unique to Preco (Optional)
