What substrates can you perforate?
A wide variety of flexible substrates including plastic and paper. Common substrates include OPP, PET, PE and Nylon film.
How wide can you perforate?
The widest web is typically 60 inches, depending on the substrate and the perforating technology.
How thin or thick of a substrate can you perforate?
Depending on the substrate and the perforating technology, substrates from 16 ga to 5 mil (4µm to 125µm) are typically possible.
How small or large can you make the perforations?
The perforation sizes can usually range from about 80 microns to 1,600 microns.
Can you perforate in registration?
Yes. We can utilize registration marks, but not all perforation technologies or applications lend themselves to this approach.
Is perforation expensive?
Pricing reflects the tailored nature of our solutions. A more important question is how much value does perforation add to your business through better quality, shelf-life extension or a stronger competitive position? Viewed in this context, the costs of perforation pale in comparison to the benefits it provides.
Can you perforate a printed substrate?
Yes, depending on the substrate and the perforating technology. Many of our applications require barely visible perforations that do not impact the aesthetics of the packaging.
