Clondalkin invests in Food Safe Packaging Technology

clondalknFrozen food packaging specialist, Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Harlingen, has invested in a laser perforation unit to meet with the growing demand for 100 percent food safe packaging.

Laser perforated holes are clean of residue and therefore eliminate the possibility of contamination of the food product inside the packaging. In addition, they work at a much higher speed than mechanical pinfeed perforation systems and produce a very controlled, uniform pattern of holes in the film, tailored to the specific application.

Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Harlingen has invested in a Starpack CW laser unit. This Laser Scribing System from Rofin is developed for easy opening and ventilation of several types of packaging films. The cross web application allows optimum choice in free form scribing and perforation. Features include: perforation from 200 microns; cutting release flaps; easy opening scribing / scoring; optimized for various materials including PE, BOPP, PET, BOPA and laminates.

Commenting on the investment Sales and Marketing Director, Jack van der Heiden, at Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Harlingen 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 10 colours), laser perforated, 100 percent food safe films.”

Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Harlingen prints and converts a wide range of films and laminates for the beverage, food, frozen foods, breads, vegetable and fruit and pet-food markets.

Its FleXtreme® full HD Flexo printing provides a quality equal to Gravure printing with very high ink and colour density at a more competitive cost level, with the added flexibility of Flexo printing allowing for shorter production runs and lead times.
