Laser perforation

Creative looks, convenient easy opening and controlled barrier – the possibilities are endless

Laser perforation provides efficient possibilities to add more value to your product by improving the quality of the packaging and its functionality, but it can also make your product stand out in the supermarket shelves.  

The technology adds important  functionality to the packaging by enabling easy-opening with maintained barrier integrity or extending the shelf-life of respiring products such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Laser perforation also gives great opportunities for creative packaging design elements such as windows and easy portioning instructions. 

The laser perforation process selectively weakens specific layer(s) of the packaging material whilst ensuring that only the wanted characteristics are achieved. The process delivers a controlled score depth for tear initiation and guided tear but also controlled gas or moisture barrier.  

The laser scoring is made in-line in the AR Packaging productions processes and no modifications are necessary in the packaging lines at the customers. Individual laser patterns can be produced in register with the print design.
