Netherlands-based frozen food packaging firm Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Harlingen has unveiled plans to procure a Rofin-built Starpack CW laser unit to facilitate safer food packaging.

The laser perforation unit has been designed to minimise contamination of food inside the packaging.

Operating at a higher speed than mechanical pin-feed perforation systems, the laser scribing system produces a controlled, uniform pattern of holes in several types of packaging films.

The equipment features cutting release flaps, as well as enables easier opening scribing / scoring.

It has been optimised for various materials, including PE, BOPP, PET, BOPA and laminates.

"Food safety is a top priority for Clondalkin and this investment gives our customers complete confidence in the safety of our packaging solutions."

Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Harlingen investment sales and marketing director Jack van der Heiden said: "This is a very significant investment for Harlingen and our customers.

"Food safety is a top priority for Clondalkin and this investment gives our customers complete confidence in the safety of our packaging solutions.

"This recent investment together with our award winning flexo printing technology , FleXtreme, means we can offer our frozen food customers the unique combination of high-quality printed (up to ten colours), laser perforated, 100% food safe films."

Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Harlingen prints and converts films and laminates for the beverage, food, and pet-food markets.
