Laser cutting of labels makes traditional mechanical die cutting headaches a thing of the past.
We know why you are here. We understand your need for quality and precision at production speeds, your frustration with broken webs, your difficulty with processing adhesives, and your die registration and tooling maintenance needs.
Laser processing changes all that. Expensive tooling charges are eliminated and maintenance costs are markedly reduced by our non-contact, nearly maintenance free LaserSharp® laser cutting systems. Because material is vaporized, there’s no adhesive buildup and fewer surfaces to clean. Our patented controller increases the accuracy of score cuts by constantly monitoring and adjusting laser power in response to the web speed, keeping kiss-cuts consistent and precise. And multiple processes—kiss-cuts, slitting, perforating, matrix removal—can be combined in one station, further increasing your productivity and throughput.
|Roll-fed or sheet fed integration||Our systems integrate with either roll handling equipment, sheet loaders, or web conveyors for a fully automated solution. Unlimited repeat lengths are available.|
|Complete digital workflow||Processing is controlled by our patented controller through the LightGuide® software. Pattern changeover is as simple as opening a file; no downtime or setup is required.|
|Unlimited cutting path||The cutting beam can be moved in any direction and cuts smoothly contoured lines and rounded corners, unlike traditional knives or saws. Finished parts are free from jagged edges, fragments, or other processing artifacts.|
|Print registration||Optional sensors or vision cameras detect registration marks or printed features on the material and automatically adjust pattern processing to precisely match these details.|
|Tiling||Automatic tiling separates long labels into tiles aligned down the web. Patented controls monitor laser cut lines as the web moves, ensuring precise, contoured lines even in very long labels.|
Other options increase your productivity to levels you never thought possible. Add multiple laser modules to expand processing speeds and widths: assign a laser to a label column to process three, four (or more) columns per sheet or roll width. Add barcode readers to read and automatically change pattern processing on-the-fly, without interruption. Place the laser processing system directly inline with your printer to print and cut out labels in one station.
It’s all possible at LasX.
