Preco FlashLite Laser Modules for Flexible Packaging

Compact Design and Unparalleled Flexibility

Preco offers a complete line of laser modules in a compact and economical configuration called FlashLite™ laser modules. FlashLite laser modules can be integrated over any existing production line, they can also be added to existing material handling structures or a Preco support frame can be included as part of the cost-effective complete laser package. Processing with these modules is based on distance or in registration and they operate in either on-the-fly or intermittent motion.

FlashLite Module Configurations

  • FlashLite Web Direction (WD) Fixed head
  • FlashLite Web Direction (WD) Fixed head w/Beam Compression
  • FlashLite ZonePro (ZP) Two-axis focusing head
  • FlashLite Cross Web (CW) Three-axis focusing head

Multiple modules for maximum efficiency.

The FlashLite modules are available in a variety of configurations, including our FlashLite Web Direction (WD) with fixed beam output heads for easy-tear applications, FlashLite WD with beam compression output heads for high-speed micro-perforating, FlashLite ZonePro (ZP) with two-axis focusing heads for laser processing in a narrow bad or width and our FlashLite Cross Web (CW) for shape scoring & cutting processes.
