LasX and Totani Introduce Integrated Laser Scoring and Pouching Solutions

Press release date: October 22, 2012

SAINT PAUL, MN, – LasX Industries, Inc., a pioneer in digital laser converting equipment, and Totani America, Inc., a world leader in pouch making machinery, have developed new equipment solutions which deliver inline laser scoring and pouching capabilities to the package converting marketplace. The newly released LaserSharp® PL40 integrates straight-line, downweb laser processing into Totani pouching equipment to revolutionize easy open packaging operations. 

When combined with the Totani pouch line, the LaserSharp® PL40 laser system brings increased flexibility and unsurpassed quality to the production floor. The system’s small footprint allows it to be integrated into new or existing pouch lines while its independent position adjustments provide precise control over score line crossweb positioning and start point placement. Laser modules can easily be positioned for precise inline scores or offset slightly for tabbed packaging applications. The LaserSharp® PL40 system can be integrated into indexed or continuous processing zones.

Additionally, LasX’s patented embedded control technology guarantees score continuity and quality by intelligently controlling score depth through all machine speeds, even during the acceleration and deceleration of an index operation. Uniting the precision of LaserSharp® laser converting technology with the trusted dependability of Totani pouch making machinery creates an innovative manufacturing solution for package converters seeking to increase production efficiency and versatility.
