360seam is PackSys Global’s side-seam technology for cosmetic laminate tubes to meet the high quality demands from the market. This highly stable, perfectly accurate seaming process creates laminate tubes with 360° printed appearance showing no visible overlap to the consumer. Yet tube manufacturers continue to have all the decoration possibilities of flat printing.
360seam technology takes advantage of ‘combination presses’ where flexo, silk-screen and foil stamping can decorate laminate in one step.
Not only is 360seam technology an advanced decoration solution for tube manufacturers, it is more sustainable and kinder to the environment; since its direct printing eliminates the need for labels. Also, laminate technology allows use of multiple thin layers to give the same look and feel in a thinner tube compared to an extruded tube.
PackSys Global has developed a new generation of side- seamers for its laminate tube lines specifically designed to cost effectively produce small batches of high quality cosmetic laminate tubes with 360seam printing: CTS 125 (125 tubes/minute).
