LaserSharp® Perforating for Breathable Packaging

LaserSharp FlexPak Services offers precision laser perforating services for breathable packaging. Laser perforating produces clean, strong, and precise holes with a controlled depth and location, enabling a vapor and gas exchange process. Unlike mechanical perforating methods, which can puncture or rip flexible packaging films, laser perforating produces cauterized micro-perforated patterns with precise round holes. Producing breathable packaging features with laser perforating has been proven effective in preserving food products. Breathable applications have also been constructed for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), microwavable steam release features, venting, and rapid-fill packaging.

LaserSharp® Scoring for Easy Open Packaging

LaserSharp FlexPak Services delivers a laser scoring process that ensures a controlled score depth for high quality easy open packaging. Laser scoring allows for easy tear propagation of flexible films without affecting the barrier properties of your package. While mechanical scoring methods often cause uneven tear lines that rip or degrade flexible films, laser scored lines yield a clean, consistent tear every time for easy open packaging materials. Applications for laser scoring include easy open tear strips for re-sealable pouches, pour spouts, zipper bags, microwavable packages, and peel re-closeable packages.

LaserSharp® Laser Processing for Microwave Packaging

Adding microwavable and self-venting features to flexible packaging material creates a simple and economical way to increase the value of the package and the product. Microwave packaging features enhance the product’s ease of use and makes food preparation convenient for consumers. With microwavable applications, consumers can avoid extensive food preparation and cook the contents directly in the bag. LaserSharp FlexPak Services uses innovative and cost-efficient laser processing techniques to achieve unmatched results when compared to conventional methods. Specially designed laser micro-perforated or scored shapes and patterns replace the need to mechanically pierce or score flexible packaging.

LasX Brings World-class Laser Processing Packaging Solutions to Interpack

HANNOVER, Germany, April 19, 2017 – LasX Industries, Inc., an industry leader in high performance, production class laser converting systems and services, is set to present its innovative packaging solutions during Interpack 4-10 May, 2017 in Düsseldorf. Featured on the LasX stand in hall 8b / C96 will be a variety of laser cutting, scoring, and perforating processes powered by patented LaserSharp® digital converting technology, in addition to showing new packaging products for the flexible packaging and folding carton industries.

Founded in 1998, LasX designs and manufactures high-performance industrial laser systems for on-demand converting applications that serve the flexible packaging, folding carton, medical, textile and electronics industries. More than 500 LasX standard and custom converting solutions for laser cutting and other processes have been installed. LasX’s sister company, LaserSharp FlexPak Services LLC, provides confidential package development services and licenses innovative packaging products. LasX has a global presence, with facilities located in the USA and Germany.

Packaging Solutions
PrimePeel® peel-reseal packaging using innovative LasX LaserSharp® laser processing techniques
William Dinauer, managing director of LasX Europe GmbH, explains that at Interpack the company’s focus will be on two markets: flexible packaging and folding cartons sectors, and educating show visitors about the innovative end-use packaging products they produce. While the company is an established leader in these sectors in North America, many of their solutions will be new to EMEA markets.

“The flexible packaging trends are in one word focused on ‘convenience’ — easy to open, quicker to consume, and longer shelf-life,” said Juan Carlos Tinoco, general manager of FlexPak. “One of our objectives at Interpack is to create awareness and more visibility of our CAP (controlled atmosphere packaging) and PrimePeel® (PP) peel-reseal packaging products and license these patented products in Europe.”

Besides the packaging world rapidly changing to personalized packaging through digital print, folding carton manufacutures are being challenged by luxury and medical customers with more complex carton designs and short-run production orders. LasX’s CartonsInMinutes® solution offers carton manufacturers a modular finishing platform to meet this need. Whether roll or sheet format, conventional or digital creasing, complex or variable shapes, easy-open or tamper protection, CartonsInMinutes delivers complete digital finishing of folding cartons.

LaserSharp Equipment
LasX LaserSharp® systems offer multiple processes in a single production run: laser cut, kiss-cut, score, etch, perforate, weld, and ablate thin flexible materials with precision. “LasX delivers a process solution, not just a machine,” said David Pung, vice-president, Business Development LasX Industries, Inc. “We are an engineering driven company that will work with customers to deliver a laser process guaranteed to meet their needs. Our installed solutions are known for their flexibility, reliability and expandability. They are truly a low maintenance, industrial solution.”

For high-speed slitter rewind equipment and other flexible packaging equipment, the FM system is a laser processing retrofit designed for accurate pattern positioning, drilling and scoring. Up to six LaserSharp processing modules, each with independent scanner heads for variable laser processing, can be used to perform a variety of laser scoring and perforating processes in a single pass.

Featuring automated folding carton production, the CartonsInMinutes® (CIM) system combines the versatility and precision of laser finishing with automated robot sorting to produce folding cartons in short production runs. With the laser tightly integrated with the robot, a single job file drives the duties of both the laser and the robot. The CIM features vision registration technology that synchronizes precision through-cutting and robotic handling – stack, sort, rotate and/or shingle finished parts.

“Our key objective for the next year is to achieve growth of the EMEA market,” concluded Dinauer. “We recognize the market for flexible packaging is growing, and so is the demand for easy-open convenience, breathable, and peel-reseal packaging. Our versatile laser module equipment and solutions that provide versatility and expandability can satisfy that demand, and help convertors grow their markets.”

Interpack is the essential event for the food, beverage, confectionery, bakery, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods sectors. No other trade fair in the world presents the entire supply chain.
