|Abstract: ||This paper describes a mechatronic approach to the design and implementation of a noncontact
sealing system for multilayer lidding films, as used in aseptic containers for food and medical
packaging. The method proposed uses a beam-steered laser to seal the product, thereby enabling
virtually instant changeover from one product line to another while reducing sealing machine tooling
costs and downtime. Results are presented which show that the process may produce seals of higher
strength than the conventional thermal/mechanical process.|
