Finishing-Slitting-Laser

We are equipped with a wide range of slitting machines to provide finished slit reel widths from 50mm to 2.8m.

Our latest investment is in a universal x6 slitter equipped with a Coherent/Rofin Lasers that can produce laser perforation and laser scribing.

Perforation

The production of micro-perforations (usually <100μm) into single ply or laminate film.
Typically this application is used to manufacture Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
solutions; such as salad / produce bags. This packing type increases shelve life of the product.

Scribing

The removal of a single ply of material within a laminate.
This process is typically used for easy-opening solutions within food packaging.
The benefit of this selective weakening application is that the laser will only remove a single ply
of the material; this means that the packaging retains its integrity.
There will be a controlled tear along the scribe line; meaning that the contents do not spill out.
Web-direction and Cross-Web solutions are available.
Skymark are going to scribe the whole layer of the film, this will create a
weak area to open the packaging on single ply structures i.e. low gauge films.
