Lidding takes off with latest laser perforator technology
Lidding takes off with latest laser perforator technology
Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury has invested over £400,000 in the very latest laser perforating equipment for its pre-cut lids.

The investment, which includes a high speed cutting machine and leading edge laser perforator, will significantly enhance the quality of perforations on its pre-cut lids, regularly found on multipack products, such as yoghurts.

John Chadwick, Managing Director of Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury, explained: "Laser technology has been available for a number of years, but it's very new technology for pre-cut lidding.  We believe that we are the only supplier of pre-cut lids to have invested in this type of equipment."

"Prior to this investment, we relied on the traditional blade-cutting method for creating perforations, but the accuracy of the laser equipment means that the breakability is much more consistent and easier for the end user. Furthermore, it allows us to offer customers variations on the size and type of perforations that they want on their products, something that we weren't able to provide with the mechanical version. A score line rather than perforating is also possible"

"We've spent a long time developing this new technology and perfecting our technique to ensure we've got it absolutely right, and it doesn't stop there are we're already looking into other ways in which we can add value through this new technology, such as easy opening lids and different types of apertures," John continued.

Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury is a key supplier of flexible packaging solutions in the food, dairy, beverage and pharmaceutical sectors.  The company is a pioneer and continues to innovate, leading competitors in the production of shrink sleeve products. The company is one of 11 production facilities operating throughout Europe and North America under Clondalkin Group’s Flexible Packaging Division.
