Spartanics introduces new laser cutting system

May 1, 2012

The L-500 incorporates Spartanics laser control software and reaches throughput speeds up to 80 m/m.

Spartanics has introduced the L-500 Laser Cutting System, designed to laser cut rolls or sheets of material for the label, packaging, carton board and abrasive industries. The L-500 is designed specifically for converting material from wide format printers with capabilities up to 500 - 600 m/m wide, which the company says eliminates the need for costly tooling fabrication and design. Developed as a dual-head finishing product, the L-500 Laser Cutting System incorporates Spartanics laser control software and reaches throughput speeds up to 80 m/m.

"The majority of our label and packaging machines work in tandem with digital printing and flexo systems where 210 m/m or 350 m/m are standard sizes. Expanding width requirements in the packaging sector as well as more innovative solutions from digital printing companies have pushed us to develop a wider format laser converting solution," says Mike Bacon, VP of sales and marketing.

According to the company, laser cutting systems have become an extension of the lean manufacturing philosophy that many label and packaging manufacturers are adopting by eliminating tooling investments, reducing scrap material, and cutting down significantly on pre-press and production line changeover times.  Like every Spartanics laser cutting machine model, the L-500 automates optimization of web speed, eliminates quality issues in applications that require stitching cuts from two laser sources, enables job changeovers on-the-fly and features an intuitive operator interface and behind-the-scenes sophisticated control engineering software.
