Parkside installs laser technology

Parkside Flexibles, a manufacturer of printed flexible packaging, has installed new laser technology at its Normanton, U.K., facility.

The laser unit is a versatile contour unit and is capable of laser scribing and cutting a wide range of materials to a specified depth and shape. The scribe produces an easy-opening system on packaging and creates resealable packs when used in conjunction with a pressure-sensitive adhesive/zipper.

This state-of-the-art equipment is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom and has been located in a purpose-built, positive-pressurized unit within Parkside’s existing facility.

The investment in this new machinery adds to the company’s existing capabilities and expertise in high-quality flexographic print, multilayer laminations (including unsupported aluminum foil), coatings and label systems.
