With our state-of-the-art equipment, you can achieve perforation speeds of up to several

hundred meters per minute and more than 1,000,000 holes per second on some materials. We aim to accelerate your processes rather than being a bottleneck.

Our machinery, designed to process efficiently, exceeds the capabilities of most competitors. We are devoted to serving you with machines specifically designed to match your processes and standards.

Applications for Laser Perforation Technology

Laser perforation is an optimal alternative to traditional methods due to its precision, high speed, and the elimination of tool costs and changeover times. Explore the applications below where our machines are contributing to success:

Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)

Maximize the shelf life of fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables, but also cut flowers - achieved through controlled ventilation, by means of laser perforation of the packaging films.

Easy Open Packaging

Enhance consumer experience by implementing flexible and precise laser perforation for various food products and FMCG providers.

Cigarette Tipping Paper

Safe compliance with the legal limits for modern filter cigarettes through the use of laser perforations that prevent excessive absorption of harmful substances.

The laser perforation can be created during the production of tipping paper or directly

during cigarette production in the maker. MLT machines are recognized worldwide in the

tobacco industry for both applications.

  • PA, Polyamide
  • PC, Polycarbonate
  • PE, Polyethylene
  • PE/PE Laminate
  • LDPE, Low Density Polyethylen
  • HDPE, High Density Polyethylen
  • PES, Polyester
  • PET, Polyethyleneterephthalate
  • PP, Polypropylene
  • OPP, Orientierte Polypropylen Foil
  • PS, Polystyrol
  • PVC, Polyvinylchlorid
  • Multilayer foils / films

Metals, metal foils, metal composites

  • AL, Aluminium
  • AL, Aluminium foil
  • CU, Copper foil
  • Precious metal general
  • Battery foil
  • Titanium film

Other materials

  • Paper

FAQ Laser Perforation Machines

Laser perforation offers numerous advantages over other methods. For example, the perforation, meaning hole size and shape, can easily be adjusted through software parameter changes. Hole position, hole diameter, and the distances from hole-to-hole are maintained precisely and with repeatability. A tool change or even a new tool (e.g. perforation roller) is not required for this. In the food sector, the contactless processing by the laser machine can also be an advantage. Thanks to specially developed beam guides and special laser sources, MLT laser machines achieve absolute precision even at the highest speeds. Are you unsure whether laser perforation is applicable for your use? Ask us - we will advise you without obligation!
