Application Types: Paper & card

Paper and card materials respond well to CO2 laser processing, and can be cut, marked, scribed and perforated. Our systems are used to mark packaging in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, where high-contrast marks are applied to inked surfaces. Intricate designs can be cut with ease and flexibility, to make greeting cards and invitations, for example. Self-adhesive labels can be kiss-cut without damage to the backing paper, holes are perforated through the pages of passports as a security feature, and paper products can be cut during production, on the fly at high speed.
