Experts in the laser industry.
As the market for convenient easy-open, easy-tear, easy-breathe and easy-fill packaging continues to expand, Preco has expanded both its technology and capacity to meet the needs of the market. With both laser systems and processing services, Preco can help manufacturers by providing high-quality, cost-effective flexible packaging.
Preco machines feature patented laser beam compression hardware and software that produce the most consistent and round holes in the industry, even at high processing speeds (up to 1200 fpm). Plus, with the capacity to handle rolls up to 50 inches wide, these machines accommodate the growing demand for large bags and pouches used for pet foods and fertilizer.
Laser Perforating for MAP
Laser micro-perforating is a process of generating a series of small through holes for MAP (modified atmosphere packaging). Perforations can also be used to help achieve controlled airflow and moisture release in various packaging products such as extended shelf life for fresh produce and burst protection for changing air pressure.
Laser Scoring for Microwave Venting
Our patented AcuVent technology is used to produce controlled depth laser score segments into flexible packaging materials at high processing speeds. These laser score-segments (vents) are weakened areas of the material and when placed into a microwave the steam generated from within the package bursts through the vents, automatically ventilating the package for a perfect microwaved product.
Laser Scoring for Consumer Convenience
Laser scoring is a process of utilizing a focused spot of energy to remove material to a specified depth. Preco's AcuTear laser scoring technology provides easy-open / easy-tear flexible packaging for controlled tear propagation while maintaining package strength and barrier properties. Laser scoring can be a straight line for contour to allow access to the zipper and peel & reseal closure features.
