The compact machine for small cosmetic tube production

  • PackSys Global AG

Tubes are a popular cosmetic packaging choice. Whether for make-up, cream or serum, cosmetic tubes are ideal for quick touch ups with a gentle squeeze by the consumer to vent the product out and then apply directly.

As consumers are increasingly looking for on-the-go products or trial-size cosmetics, small cosmetic tubes provide the solution.

PackSys Global's Mini 120 HC is a compact machine which makes the production of small cosmetic tubes simple, compact and very cost effective, with tube heading and capping in a single machine.

The Mini HC has been specially designed for small tube diameters from 12.7mm to 22mm and this integrated line allows plastic tube producers to reduce lead time for the delivery of small tubes as well as dramatically reducing the production costs, whilst freeing up capacity on other tube lines to work on larger diameter tubes with higher selling prices.

The extremely compact design of PackSys Global's Mini 120 HC not only saves floor space, it enhances ergonomics. The operator interface is centrally placed so that all process steps can be supervised, and the innovative turret design reduces size parts for capping by half.

PackSys Global has developed CIM, a compact neck inspection unit for aerosol cans on the outfeed conveyor of the necking machine. While the common market solution places the inspection camera directly onto the necking machine outfeed conveyor resulting in less accurate can positioning, the new CIM compact neck inspection unit from PackSys Global is located on the transport system between the necking machine and packing station and is far superior to traditional systems and as it accommodates a dedicated handling system for the cans by stabilizing the product in position.
