ROFIN StarMAP software

Friday, 24 January, 2014 | Supplied by: Laser Resources Management Pty Ltd

Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) uses micro-perforated packaging films for optimising the gas composition within packaging to extend shelf life of fresh products.

Using StarMAP software from ROFIN, micro-perforations are individually customised for the produce and the packaging geometry (tray, cup, pouch, flow wrap, etc). Package volume, packaging film type and storage temperature are considered as well.

The software calculates the optimum O2/CO2 balance in the head space of the packaging. Growth-related factors can be included on request.

Depending on the packaging’s volume and geometry, StarMAP determines the size and number of micro-perforations needed to provide the optimum gas composition. This prevents anaerobic conditions and minimises product respiration in order to increase shelf life.

According to the company, the software offers fast and flexible adaptation to varying products and packaging, and eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly trial and error. It can reduce waste and streamline production.

The software has an easy-to-use interface. An optional device for measurement of respiration rates on-site is available. StarMAP can be used with any ROFIN web-direction laser perforating solutions such as StarPack WD and StarPack AP.
