SME Specific MeasuresCompetitive and Sustainable Growth

Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01115

AcronymHi-SLIDE

Proposal titleHigh speed bi-directional laser cutting and creasing of fastmoving carton-board

for packaging

AbstractEuropean SME packaging producers (around 6000 in EU) are under a continuous pressure

of often-powerful (multinational) clients to meet constant changes in packaging designs

and features. Current process equipment (rotary and punch tools) have limitations due to

long delivery times of tools for design changes (e.g. 4 months for rotary tools) and high

costs (50.000 Euro per design change) all leading to extremely low flexibility. The

objective of the Hi-SLIDE project is to develop new laser-based process equipment for

fully automated in-line cutting and creasing (a fundamentally new approach in the total

processing system of packaging).  Goal is to obtain complete freedom of (intermediate)

design changes and to ban completely the problem of wear of the cutting tools.  These

innovations will result in radical improvements in flexibility, reduced time to market

(50-80%), cost reduction (70%), high speed (300 metres/minute), accuracy (100%

repetitivity) and waste reduction (50%).
