Pamarco has confirmed it has invested in a state-of-the-art 5.5M, 500-watt Harmony laser for its Atlanta, Georgia plant. The company anticipates both systems to be operational by the end of Q1 2024.
This major investment is a significant step in expanding the company’s capabilities and growth in markets requiring high volume ceramic coatings from 60 to 100 bcm.
“Pamarco’s commitment to the industry continues with the addition of this equipment. The machine going into Atlanta supports our growth in the large roll segment, and the laser for La Palma increases our service capabilities for the West Coast and South and Central America,” said John Burgess, President, Pamarco.
Driven by an opportunity to undertake large cylinder engraving projects for a Fortune 500 paper company and following successful trials in the UK, Parmarco says it is confident that this cutting-edge technology will ensure high-quality engravings. Additionally, they say that the new laser will significantly enhance their ongoing cold seal projects for esteemed clients like Con Agra, providing more consistent engraving than standard lasers.
The Harmony laser, fully equipped with the latest software and hardware from ALE, including Twin Track technology, will provide the Atlanta plant with dual laser capacity for engraving Jumbo rolls, improving operational efficiency and product quality.
In parallel to the expansion, the Atlanta plant will transfer one of their newest 3.5M 500-watt lasers to the La Palma plant. This laser will be upgraded with new software and hardware, also supporting the advanced ALE Twin Track technology. This strategic move is designed to enhance their graphic design capabilities and boost the overall laser engraving capacity.
