Coherent will showcase several innovative solutions for packaging at Interpack 2017, taking place in Duesseldorf, Germany 4 June to 10 June.
The new StarPack CW Hybrid addresses needs current needs in roll-to-roll processing with industry-leading features to address a broad range of packaging applications, such as cross web and web direction scribing and perforating.
StarPack CW Hybrid - flexible cross web and web direction solution for medium size production
The StarPack CW Hybrid system (shown in photo) meets the needs of medium size production for cross web and web direction processing. One or two lasers with up to eight 2-axis scanners allow any recipe of scribing in cross web direction and in web direction, as well as perforation of round micro-holes. Optomechanical improvements and StarFlex software makes for simplicity, convenience, speed, quality, and lower cost-of-operation.
StarFlex - more flexible processing, shorter setup times
StarFlex GUI software provides a unified user interface, no matter which type of system, whether web direction or cross web, perforation or scribing. The software operates systems with up to 9 lasers, and speeds layout changes. Process parameters can be changed and optimized without the need to stop the system. Further, StarFlex software offers four different operating levels for users, administrators etc., to prevent inadvertent errors or reprogramming.
StarMap, VisionPerfoControl and LaserPulseDetection
StarMap, optimizes Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) provides the best perforation recipe for various packaging designs and products, and eliminates trial-and-error. VisionPerfoControl is a unique real-time monitoring system for hole diameter and circularity. LaserPulseDetection dynamically monitors laser output, resulting in improved product quality.
