About Preco, Inc.

Preco, Inc. was the first to pioneer the use of industrial lasers to modify and enhance flexible packaging material. We continually expand our laser systems technology and contract service capabilities to meet the needs of the growing market for convenient easy-open, breathable and microwave venting packaging applications. Preco provides high quality, cost-effective laser processing systems for flexible packaging. Cross Web systems direct the laser beam across the web for shape scoring, shape cutting and for perforating applications. Web Direction systems are utilized for scoring and micro-perforating. Preco’s FlashLite line of laser modules can be integrated over virtually any existing production line. Preco’s Contract Manufacturing Services can provide you with all of the resources needed to integrate laser processing into your manufacturing stream. Our SQF, and ISO 9001 & 13485 certified contract facility processes over 500 million linear feet of film per year. As the undisputed industry leader, many of our laser processing services are unique patented techniques offered only by Preco: • Laser Scoring for Consumer Convenience (AcuTear®) is a process of utilizing a focused spot of energy to remove material to a specified depth, thus providing easy open / easy tear flexible packaging while maintaining the strength and barrier properties. • Laser Perforating for Modified Atmosphere Packaging (AcuBreathe®) is a process of generating a series of small through holes to extend the shelf life in fresh cut produce. Laser Perforating (AcuBreath®) is also used in burst protection applications when changes in air pressure are a concern. • Laser Scoring for Microwave Venting (AcuVent®) is used to produce controlled depth laser score segments into flexible packaging. These laser score segments (vents) are weakened areas of the material and when placed into a microwave the steam generated from within the package burst through the vents, automatically ventilating the package for a perfect microwave product.
