FlashLite WD Laser Modules

Focused on the Future of Packaging

With the FlashLite™ laser module, Preco has once again shown it is focused on the future of packaging. The FlashLite modules offer laser scoring and laser micro- perforating for easy-opening, easy-fill and easy-breathe packaging. The compact size and unparalleled flexibility of the FlashLite enables it to be integrated over virtually any existing production line. With a variety of options, including Preco’s patented Beam Compression Units (BCUs) for high speed micro-perforating at web speeds up to 457 m/min (1,500 ft/min), the FlashLite has multiple ways to solve your flexible packaging needs.

BCU technology creates holes 10 times more consistent and three times faster than industry standards. Hole sizes vary from 50 microns to 120 microns depending on film type and thickness.

The FlashLite is configurable to meet your needs. Single or multiple beams available with various power. To provide the best t for your production line, the module itself is avail- able vertically (as shown) or horizontally.
