FlashLite™ Laser Modules


FlashLite Laser Module LogoPreco's FlashLite laser modules offer laser cutting, kiss cutting, scoring and micro-perforating. The compact size along with economical and unparalleled flexibility of the FlashLite enables it to be integrated over virtually any existing production line. It can be added to existing material handling structures or a structure can be included as part of the cost effective complete laser package. Laser processing is based on distance, eye spot or vision registration and these modules operate in either on-the-fly or step and repeat manner. Preco's exclusive control software is tailored to web processing, allowing for an easy transition from job set-up to production.

Laser Galvo technology
for shape processing

 

FlashLite WD Module
Laser technology for
straight-line processing

 

FlashLite WD Module
with BCU

Laser technology for perforating


The FlashLite modules are available in a variety of configurations including Web Direction (WD) for straight-line processing, Web Direction with Beam Compression (BCUs) for perforating and G (galvanometer) for shape processing. These modules can run at web speeds up to 305 m/min (1000 ft/min) dependent upon material type and thickness. The FlashLite equipped with BCU technology creates holes 10 times more consistent and three times faster than industry standards. Hole sizes vary from 75 microns to 115 microns depending on film type and thickness. The FlashLite G Series modules utilize "directed beam technology" to laser process across web materials "on the fly." These modules can easily be integrated into other web-based systems such as our Rotary Converting Platform among others.

The FlashLite is configurable to meet your needs; single or multiple beams are available with various powers. To provide the best fit for you production line the module itself can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
