Perforating

Perforating requires a laser with high peak power and excellent beam quality for crisp, symmetrical perforations. Recommended 100W to 400W lasers include:

Precision Cutting

Precision cutting requires a CO2 laser with higher continuous power to improve cut efficiency, and fast rise/fall times to avoid discoloration and charring. Proper selection of laser wavelength is also critical to match material absorption and achieve the desired results. Recommended Synrad CO2 lasers include:

Kiss Cutting

Kiss cutting requires a CO2 laser with good beam quality to ensure high cut quality, and good power density stability to control cutting the top layer, leaving the carrier intact. Recommended Synrad lasers include:

Easy-Open Scoring

Easy open scoring requires a high performance laser with good beam stability for maximum control to prevent cut-through. Recommended CO2 lasers include:

Corrugated Cutting

Laser corrugated cutting occurs without the typical pressure marks associated with mechanical cutting processes. Recommended computer-controlled lasers include:

Thin Film

Converting thin film materials requires a laser with high peak power to minimize melt lips and excellent power density stability to ensure consistent results. Recommended pulsed lasers include:
