William Dinaur, managing director, LasX Europe, said, “The CIM system combines the versatility and precision of laser finishing with automated robot sorting to produce folding cartons in short production runs.”
The CIM features vision registration technology that synchronises precision through-cutting and robotic handling – stack, sort, rotate and/or shingle finished parts.
“Whether roll or sheet format, conventional or digital creasing, complex or variable shapes, easy-open or tamper proof, CIM delivers complete digital finishing of folding cartons,” added Dinaur.
The company also showcased a laser system for flexible packaging. Jon Hoeft, technical sales, LasX, said, “The no-contact laser process vaporises flexible materials instead of punching or tearing through them. The resulting holes are smaller (70μm), cleaner, rounder, more uniform, free from fragments or other processing artifacts and typically exceed OTR (oxygen transmission rate) and MAP (modified atmospheric packaging) requirements.
