LASER CUTTING

Also suitable for small print runs: Laser die-cutting enables the realisation of particularly filigree die-cuts – and flexibly in a short time.

Technical Approach

With our laser die-cutting we can realise your exciting projects in a short time. Laser die-cutting enables high cost efficiency compared to mechanical die-cutting and is particularly suitable for small runs as there are no tooling costs.

In contrast to conventional die-cutting by means of conventional cutting dies, this is a thermal cutting process with flexibly inline generated creasing dies.

Special features of our Highcon Euclid III laser die cutter

  • The Highcon is the only laser die cutter that allows you to score your foldable packaging directly.
  • Implementation of creative projects and products with filigree die-cuts, e.g. pop-up cards, book covers, greeting invitation and theme cards with versatile decorations or packaging with unusual viewing windows.
  • Personalisation of your projects. Each product can have its own individual laser engraving or engraving.
  • Windows or contours can be adapted in the production process and notches can be completely avoided or individually inserted.
  • Fitting accuracy problems between printing and die-cutting, for example due to material distortion, can be compensated for as no tool is required for laser cutting and the creasing form is created immediately before production. The creasing can be simulated in advance by scoring (cutting).
  • No complex stripping tools (as required for conventional punching) are needed to break out the waste. The waste is broken out and removed directly in the punch.
  • In contrast to conventional laser die-cutting, the Highcon Euclid III has a 2-axis CO2 mirror and pass-through laser. This makes production 10x faster than the laser technology currently used in the packaging sector.
  • Thanks to digital processing, there is no long set-up time for laser die-cutting. This means your project can be implemented in a short time – ideal for short runs!
  • The creasing plates can be set up repeatedly for repeat jobs in 2 min.

Overview of Benefits

  • Small quantities can be produced cost-effectively as no tooling is required.
  • We can therefore implement your projects for you in a short time.
  • Versatile use, e.g. for engraving, laser cutting, grooving or a combination of both.

Frequently asked questions

How does laser cutting work?

In contrast to conventional punching, this is not done with a tool, but with a 2-axis CO2 mirror and throughput laser.
The cutting is done by three laser units, which precisely convert DXF or PDF files. The laser heats the material selectively and can thus cut quickly and very filigree. Thermal discolouration can be minimised by using materials with a high pulp or fresh fibre content.

What can I use laser cutting for?

Laser die-cutting is especially suitable when particularly filigree cutting, engraving or grooving is required. Challenging shapes that cannot be realised with conventional cutting dies are also the area of application for this machine.

What are the advantages of laser cutting?

Since, in contrast to conventional die-cutting, no tool has to be made, projects can be implemented much faster and more cost-optimised. Finer and more filigree shapes and details can be realised. You can personalise or engrave your projects.
