Pechiney Plastic Packaging: Laser-scored controlled opening
LaserTear[r] scoring technology creates a precise straight or curved score line, cut to the desired depth specifications, that always tears easily and accurately and prevents “renegade” tears that can compromise resealable zippers.
The two-dimensional capabilities can create custom shapes for a variety of packaging and promotional applications. LaserTear provides superior performance over mechanical knurling by eliminating time and labor and dramatically reducing film waste. It is ideal for advanced applications such as selective layer cutting and perforating and it complements barrier and zipper packaging.
