Parkside Flexibles are pleased to announce the installation of new laser technology at their Normanton 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 also the creation of 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 UK and has been located in a purpose-built, positive-pressurised 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 aluminium foil), coatings and label systems.
“This substantial investment in new technology compliments Parkside’s existing capabilities and supports our business ethos of focusing upon technologically advanced packaging solutions. This provides our clients with the opportunity to develop unique and pioneering solutions for a wide variety of pack and label formats,” says Steve McCormick, divisional managing director of Parkside’s Speciality Packaging Division.
The new laser unit has now been commissioned and products are being supplied for packing at sites in the UK and overseas.
