POWERFUL, HIGH PERFORMANCE CO2 LASERS FOR CUTTING, SCORING AND SLITTING FLEXIBLE PLASTICS, FILMS AND FOILS AND FOR HIGH RESOLUTION MARKING
HPD Series are powerful, high performance CO2 lasers. They deliver exceptionally high power density which enables them to be effective in cutting and perforating flexible plastic films and foils and other materials, marking high resolution images onto several non-metallic substrates and coding difficult to code substrates.
This combination of cutting and coding makes HPD lasers appropriate for integration with form, fill and seal and similar equipment where it is needed to both cut plastic film and to apply lot code information to it. Macsa has been developing lasers for over 20 years and the HPD Series have been developed with this experience and with Macsa’s component suppliers who are themselves industry. This has enabled the development of products which are best of class.
HPD lasers are easy to install and integrate. They are fully network enabled and equipped with an on-board computer making an external PC unnecessary. And they are easy to use: they use Marca software to code precisely and consistently.
USED IN PACKAGED GOODS MARKETS ESPECIALLY READY MEALS, SNACK FOODS AND BEVERAGES.

HPD SERIES ARE POWERFUL
HPD lasers are equipped with a high magnification beam expander which results in high power density.
Precise control of the properties of the laser beam allows the selective cutting of layers in the most complex plastic films. This allows easy opening while leaving other layers intact to protect the product from light and humidity. Unlike mechanical tools (dies, blades, punches, etc.) the laser suffers minimal wear as it does not come into physical putting the integrity of the product at risk.
HPD SERIES HAVE PACE
Because HPD lasers are more powerful they need less dwell time to mark or code. This effect is strengthened by the use of long focal length lenses.
Polymers allow the transport of low molecular weight components, resulting in the permeation of oxygen, water, components of food aromas and any other gases and vapours. That is the basis of Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP). In porous packaging the longevity of perishable products is increased and the exchange flow between atmospheres is controlled.
HPD SERIES MARK WITH PRECISION
HPD lasers are equipped with a high magnification beam expander and long focal length lenses which deliver very small spots.
Coding over large printing areas.
Spot size is directly proportional to the wavelength of the laser, beam quality (M2) and focal distance of the lens. In general there’s a physical limitation to achieve a small spot when printing over large areas from long focal distance. HPD lasers compensate such a limitation targeting big areas and keeping a perfect round spot which is traduced into high quality and thin line characters.
