LaserPin S.r.l. has its HQ in Cologno Monzese, Milan (Italy).

It started its business in 1949 under the name of MIATEX, a company that manufactured components for the textile industry and then specialised in the development of micro perforating machinery for various types of materials. Subsequently, it also expanded its range of expertise into the field of hot micro perforation. In fact, Miatex became the first company to apply it on plastic films.
It also developed a department dedicated to complete system integrations, designing and manufacturing unwinder-rewinders.

At the end of the 90s, production was extended to stretch film converting and later on to the food PVC sector, increasing the manufacture of slitter-rewinders and thickness reducers.
Over the years, Miatex has designed and produced slitting, pre-cutting and multi-cutting, fibrillating and other units for a wide variety of material applications.

Miatex has made history in micro-perforation. With the new ownership and a generational change, LaserPin has expanded its production range during the 2000s, also designing and manufacturing macro-perforating units, also called punching units, and remaining a point of reference for technical support and spare parts.
It has also introduced laser perforating units within its range of proposal.

LaserPin, heir to Miatex and still living within the same historic walls, is currently specialising in the designing and production of machinery for the processing of moving materials for a wide range of applications in sectors such as textiles, automotive, food, medical, agriculture and fibrillation; to mention a few.

Thanks to its long and extensive experience, LaserPin remains a reliable and strong partner, with invaluable ‘know-how’ inherited from Miatex and from more than 70 years of history, offering its worldwide customers solutions for their specific needs, working almost completely with custom enquiries.


To satisfy our customers as fully as possible, we have recently enhanced our spare parts service and introduced a dedicated e-commerce.



Punching units make round or shaped holes of different sizes on a moving web, mostly on plastic film. The great advantage of Laserpin’s punching machines is their adaptability to the customer’s requirements and the ease of integration with product lines (i.e. slitters, extruders, bag making machines, laminators).

Laserpin installs dies whose lifespan is five times higher than the top competitors’.
Main Applications:

  • Mulching;
  • Handles on bags;
  • Holes on the bottom part of plastic shopping bags;
  • Holes for air resistance reduction on sings and posters;
  • Holes on plastic sheets for perspiration on wooden fruit cases;
  • Ventilation holes on very thick LDPE plastic film for pallet protection;
  • Identification holes to identify defective products or other needs – Laces to close rubbish bags.


The more recent technology, it maximizes the quality of the perforation process and of the holes.Additionally, the Laser units allow operating with more perforation lines simultaneously, with a maximum frequency of 1 kHz while calibrating the breathability of the film. These units are particularly suitable for IV and V range packaging (washed, cut and dried vegetables).

The laser equipment can be installed on pre-existing production lines or as a stand-alone unit. The application of laser technology in the perforation of thermoplastic film induces a calibrated transpiration, thus reducing the ordinary maintenance only to a sporadic cleaning and removing any extraordinary maintenance.

Main Applications:

  • Food packaging to keep freshness and fragrances by controlled perspiration on fruits and vegetable bags (perforation less than 100 microns);
  • To produce packaging for cooking films in order to avoid breaking of packaging and ensure steam release;
  • To pre-cut films in longitudinal and transversal directions to facilitate the tear.


Laserpin started producing micro perforators in the fifties and in 1980 was the first company to develop the hot needles micro-perforation Technology on plastic film. It consists of making holes, melting the material, by heating the needles. Needles are installed on interchangeable cylinders on a hot shaft which operates them. Cold microperforation is a low-cost solution still used in many applications.

Among the different lines of hot and cold micro-perforators, the H200 model is the top-of-the-range product, designed for the processing of large quantities of material. The dimensions of the pin-shaft, bigger than the standard models, is designed to adjust the shaft’s speed to the film’s speed.

The heating system (divided into three sections of infrared lamps) guarantees a constant temperature, thus making it possible to create perfect holes on every type of thermoplastic material, independently of the density of holes. Laserpin hot micro-perforation models can work up to a speed of 300 meters/minute.
Main Applications:

  • Bread packaging;
  • Food packaging;
  • Fibrillation;
  • IV range;
  • V range;
  • Adhesive tapes;
  • Bandages;
  • Sanitary napkins;
  • Sound and heat isolation;
  • Ventilation.


We also produce equipment for:

  • Laser Technology;
  • Embossing;
  • Cross Pre-Cut;
  • Blade Perforation;
  • Fibrillation.
