ABSTRACT
The article discusses the benefits of using lasers in cutting paper/board. Laser cutting produces clean, dust-free edges with no fiber endings sticking out that can act as moisture wicks. It can also be used for slitting of webs in paper machines and can replace water jet cutters in edge trimming. It can be combined with digital printers. Two cases examining the economic difference between the traditional technologies and laser technology are presented. Annual costs for edge trimming using the laser systems are higher than the water jet edge trimming systems due to design of the laser system.
