Flexible Packaging

Precision laser scoring and micro-perforating adds easy-open and breathable features to flexible packaging.

LasX's sister company, LaserSharp® FlexPak Services, specializes in contract laser converting for the flexible packaging industry. FlexPak's qualified staff, state-of-the-art food-grade facility and commitment to quality and customer satisfaction deliver results that will exceed your packaging expectations. Using innovative LaserSharp® laser processing techniques, FlexPak offers controlled, precise and consistent laser scoring and perforating functions that deliver high quality products and rapid turnaround at affordable prices.

Unlike mechanical perforation methods which often puncture packaging materials and may compromise their integrity, laser perforating processes vaporize flexible films, creating clean, strong, and uniform holes. FlexPak's ability to control the output power of the laser also makes it possible to achieve blind perforations which facilitate the exchange of gases and vapors while maintaining a hermetic seal. These benefits make laser perforating a superior choice for perishable foods as well as microwavable and rapid-fill packaging.
