The L-350 system includes a 400 W laser, two-sided lamination, UV varnish, rotary sheeting and die cutting, slitting, back scoring and Spartanics’ Change-on-the-Fly barcode reading software. The system was purchased to provide General Label with greater flexibility for material substrates and cut configurations along with a reduction in job change over time.

Laser cutting technology is revolutionizing the way that printing and converting companies produce products. The technology helps eliminate long lead times, expensive tooling, and excessive material waste. Printing companies have become more accustomed to shorter job runs, private labeling, and decreasing profit margins, and laser converting equipment is one way to address these market changes.

Spartanics has been manufacturing laser die cutting systems, steel rule die cutting systems, screen printing lines, automated counters and other equipment since 1963.
