Increased Capability

The Preco Web Direction Series expands the capacity for laser micro perforating and scoring within our wheelhouse. This machine has enhanced processing, meaning it has lower powered lasers, creating higher quality micro-perforated holes than a standard laser machine at slower speeds.

Added Value for AssociatedLP

For our company this means less waste, higher accuracy, and over 15x faster than other web direct series machines. We can perforate holes 50UM to 150UM (0.002 in. - 0.006in.) independent of web speed, meaning perforations are consistently round.

Added Value for our Customers

For our customers this means faster delivery and a cleaner looking (larger range of hole size) perforations and therefore package. 

Application Examples

  • Higher reliability for Easy-Open perforations on pouches
  • Higher reliability for Tear-Off shrink sleeves
  • Higher accuracy for micro-perforations and therefore reliability for modified atmosphere Lidding Film
