The deliberate weakening of the material is designed to make opening the package easier. Our laser scoring system can be integrated in either the finishing process or the packing plant (online). Our customers mainly use the following foils and flexible films:
- non-laminated foils such as PET, APET, PE, PLA, OPP, and PA, and
- composite foils such as PET/PE, PET/Alu/PE, and PET/paper/Alu/PE
- kraft paper
- special materials from research and development
In these easy-opening solutions, the material can be scribed in the machine direction, cross direction or in a free form. Not all foils are the same. Different foodstuffs packagings have different barrier properties, which are derived from the foodstuff in question and its intended use of the packaging. The depth of material weakening is controlled by the MLT software and can be set with immense precision. This means that the barrier properties are not adversely affected or knowingly changed by the laser scribing process.
