Laser Scoring Machine
MLT offers systems enabling selective weakening of mono- and multilayer film during the converting process (offline) and on packaging machines (online). For example, Easy Opening features are created by processing materials in machine direction (MD), cross direction (CD) or free-form contour scribing. Selective weakening of materials can be adjusted with a high level of precision ensuring the barrier properties are not damaged during the scribing process.
Many examples of easy opening, shaping or embossing solutions are available in the food/non-food industry. Recent introductions of such solutions include tear strip replacement, microwave openings or customer-specific applications, e.g. embossing for brand awareness.
