Laser Scoring for Digital Converting

Non-contact scoring method eliminates deformation to surrounding areas often seen with traditional pressure-driven scoring equipment

About Laser Scoring for Digital Converting

Laser system scoring allows precise control of cut depth, allowing multi-layer materials like labels or flexible packaging to be scored only through desired layers. Unique or highly detailed label shapes help attract attention to the finished product while accurate scoring allows packages to be easily opened for a satisfying customer experience. Folding cartons or packages can be created through a combination of scoring and cutting, all with a single piece of equipment. This non-contact scoring method eliminates deformation to surrounding areas often seen with traditional pressure-driven scoring equipment and can be used with a wide range of materials for a variety of processes, including:

  • Label cutting
  • Easy open flexible packaging
  • Folding cartons and packaging
  • Decorative scoring to reveal underlying layer colors

The combination of properly matched scan head, control software, and laser source ensures accurate, repeatable scoring depth at desired throughput speeds. The precise, high-speed beam delivery of a scan head ensures patterns are repeatable with excellent throughput and align perfectly with printed graphics. Laser power, wavelength, and stability will ensure proper material absorption—critical for consistent results when working with films, foils, and plastics.
