The laser beam emitted from the laser irradiation device 3 is moved in the flow direction and the transverse direction of the laminated film 10 to form a fold line 4 in the transverse direction of the laminated film 10. As a laser, the wavelength that is easily absorbed by the plastic layer is 10.6 μm
A carbon dioxide laser is used.

Although not shown, the inside of the laser irradiation device 3 includes a laser generator, a Z-axis scanner (dynamic focus), an objective lens, an X-axis scanner, and a Y-axis scanner. After adjusting the focal length by the axis scanner and passing through the objective lens, the laser is moved in the flow direction and the transverse direction of the laminated film 10 by the X-axis scanner and the Y-axis scanner, and the laser is moved to a predetermined position on the laminated film 10. It is configured so that a score line can be formed in the shape. As a laser irradiation apparatus used in the present invention, for example, HPLK1130-6 (GENERAL S
CANNING).

The cooling roll 1 used in the present invention has a diameter of 500 to 1000 mm having a surface cooled to about 20 to 25 ° C. which does not condense on the surface of the cooling roll 1.
A metal roll made of stainless steel, iron, aluminum or the like is used. If the diameter of the cooling roll 1 is small, the curvature of the surface becomes large, and the focus error becomes large when the laser is moved in the flow direction of the laminated film 10, which is not preferable. The diameter of the cooling roll 1 is 1000 mm,
The distance from the XY scanner to the target is about 500
In the case of mm, the score line 4 can be formed in the laminated film 10 within a range of about 300 mm in the transverse direction and about 150 mm in the flow direction.

The cut portion 4 can be formed by melting and mist of the irradiated portion. The cut line 4 can be formed by irradiating a laser at a scan speed of 1000 to 1500 mm / sec. However, if the scan speed is low, the cut line is good, but the cut line becomes slightly noticeable, and if the scan speed is high, the cut line is cut. The entry of the line of vision becomes slightly worse, but the line of the cut line becomes inconspicuous.

The continuous laminated film 10 shown in FIG. 2 in which the score lines 4 are formed is for producing the four-sided sealing packaging bag shown in FIG. 3, and is a continuous laminated film having a constant width. The both side end portions and the center portion in the width direction of 10 are side end heat bonding regions 6 ′, respectively, and are cut lines 9 for cutting at intervals corresponding to the length in the vertical direction of the packaging bag. Both sides sandwiching 9 are an edge thermal bonding area 5a 'and an edge thermal bonding area 5b', and a linear score line 4 is formed in the transverse direction of the laminated film 10 at a position away from the cut line 9 by a predetermined distance. Configuration. Cuts are formed at both ends of the cut line 4 of the laminated film 10 shown in FIG. 2, and the cuts can be formed simultaneously in the step of forming the cut lines 4 by a laser, or in another step. It can also be formed mechanically. When the cuts are formed simultaneously in the step of forming the score lines 4, the laminated film 10 is irradiated by irradiating a carbon dioxide laser under the conditions of an output of 50 W, a repetition of 200 μsec, a pulse width of 80 μsec, and a scan speed of 200 to 300 mm / sec. Can be completely melted and mist-formed to form cuts.

The continuous laminated film on which the score line 4 shown in FIG. 2 is formed is folded and folded at the fold line 8 at the center in the width direction, and the side end heat bonding areas 6 'on both sides are thermally cut. The packaging bag according to the embodiment is obtained by forming a tubular shape by bonding the side edge thermal bonding portions 6 to each other, cutting the edge thermal bonding region 5b 'with the cutting line 9 after the thermal bonding. After filling the contents into the packaging bag, the edge thermal bonding region 5a 'is thermally bonded to form a thermal edge thermal bonding portion 5a, whereby a four-side seal bag as shown in FIG. 3 is obtained. Further, the continuous laminated film on which the score line 4 shown in FIG. 2 is formed is applied to an automatic filling and packaging machine, and is folded in two at the score line 8 to form a side end heat bonding area 6 ′.
3 is thermally bonded, the contents are filled, and the edge thermal bonding region 5a 'and the edge thermal bonding region 5b' are thermally bonded, and then cut at the cut line 9 to obtain the packaging bag shown in FIG. be able to. In order to open this packaging bag, the side end heat bonding portion 6

In the embodiment, the shape of the packaging bag is a four-sided sealing bag, and the straight cut line 4 parallel to the edge thermal bonding portion 5a is formed. However, the shape of the packaging bag is a three-sided sealing bag. , Pillow-type bags, pillow-type gusset bags, self-standing bags, etc. are arbitrary. The shape of the score line 4 to be formed is not limited to a linear shape, but may be a folded line shape, a curved shape, a diagonal shape, etc. It is possible to make the shape easy to open corresponding to the above. Further, instead of forming the score line 4 over the entire length of the continuous laminated film in the width direction as in the embodiment, it is also possible to partially form the score line in the width direction in an arbitrary shape. By forming a score line in a half width in the width direction without forming the entire length in the width direction of the laminated film, the score line is formed only in the laminated film constituting the back surface of the packaging bag, and the cut line is not conspicuous from the surface. It can also be a bag.

As shown in FIG. 4, the laminated film for forming the score line 4 by the method of the present invention includes an outer layer 11, an adhesive layer 12, an aluminum foil layer 13, an adhesive layer 14, and a laser absorbing layer 15 in this order from the outer surface.

And the heat-adhesive resin layer 16 are laminated, and the score line 4 is formed in the laser absorbing layer 15. With the outer layer 11 of the laminated film in close contact with the surface of the cooling roll,
By irradiating the carbon dioxide gas laser from the surface of the thermal adhesive resin layer 16, the thermal adhesive resin layer 16 transmits the carbon dioxide laser without absorbing much, so that the laser absorbing layer 15 inside the thermal adhesive resin layer 16 is formed. Absorbs the carbon dioxide gas laser to form a score line 4.

As the outer layer 11 of the laminated film, biaxially oriented polyethylene terephthalate, biaxially oriented polypropylene,
Biaxially stretched nylon or the like can be used. As the laser absorbing layer, biaxially stretched polyethylene terephthalate, biaxially stretched nylon, biaxially stretched polyvinyl alcohol, polycarbonate, or the like can be used. These plastics have a wavelength of 1
Concentrates the carbon dioxide laser and irradiates it on the surface of the laser absorption layer 15 so that the irradiated part of the laser absorption layer 15 generates heat, melts, decomposes, and mist. And the score line 4 is formed. As the heat-adhesive resin layer 17, polyolefin resins such as low-density polyethylene, medium-density polyethylene, high-density polyethylene, linear low-density polyethylene, polypropylene, and ethylene-propylene copolymer can be used. Since these resins have the property of transmitting the carbon dioxide laser without absorbing it, the cut line 4 is not formed even when the carbon dioxide laser is irradiated.
