VisionPerfoControl

Rofin has unveiled the VisionPerfoControl, a device for real-time monitoring of perforation quality.

Until now it has been difficult to monitor and ensure that micro holes of consistent quality and diameter have been laser perforated. Typically these holes have diameters less than 120 microns while the packaging film moves with some 100-400 m/min.
