Spartanics unveils carton laser cutter

July 18, 2011

The laser cutter has the potential to reduce scrap material during setup and eliminate the cost of tooling for traditional diecutting.

Packagers, board converters and others producing packaging made from carton stock, such as pharmaceutical contract manufacturers, can now employ laser cutting technology with the Carton Laser Cutting Machine from Spartanics.

Spartanics says that its Carton Laser Cutting Machine decreases costs of production by eliminating the tooling costs of traditional diecutting methods; by reducing scrap material during job setup; and saving up to 20 percent in job setup time and associated labor costs.

Features include: dual laser head design allows for cutting sheets up to 800 mm (31") or greater; unlimited part size length and width up to 400 mm per scan head (16"); accurate defect-free cutting of carton stock 0.75mm (0.030") or less; equally versatility with virgin or recycled materials; advanced scoring capabilities within parts that perform better in folder/gluer industrial packaging machinery than traditional diecut arts; optional bar code reading to enable change of cut configuration on the fly; proprietary fume extraction system; and a proprietary system for automated slug removal and conveyor belt cleaning.

Spartanics is based in Rolling Meadows, IL, USA.
