Responding to the changing face of the cosmetic industry: NEOSeam

PackSys Global is a trendsetter within the cosmetic industry and continues to be the only manufacturer able to offer a complete cosmetic tube line.

In addition to developing new machinery, PackSys Global has also introduced new technologies to the industry. Following the undisputed success of Inviseam® over a decade ago and 360seam™ is expanding the capabilities available in the cosmetic packaging industry.

NEOSeam™, the latest contribution from PackSys Global which is showing no visible overlap to the consumer completes the offer.


NEOSeam is PackSys Global’s new side-seam technology cosmetic tubes. NEOSeam is the solution for customers who want the appearance of 360° decoration combined with the quality, cost advantages and multiple printing technologies available with flat printing.

This stable, easy to produce and perfectly accurate seaming process creates laminate tubes with 360° printed appearance showing no visible overlap to the consumer.

In addition to NEOSeam™ technology being an advanced decoration solution for tube manufacturers, it is more sustainable and kinder to the environment since 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 as compared to an extruded tube.

NEOSeam allows tube producers to re-purpose the «side trim», the laminate material which is normally cut off the printed material and then thrown away. The side-trim is used by NEOSeam to build-up the tube’s sideseam, allowing the production of tubes which do not show any «white line» at the side seam area even after multiple uses.

PackSys Global is currently able to implement and retrofit NEOSeam on all of its current generation sideseamers which are designed for cosmetic tubes with diameter 25 mm and larger.

  • Allows full 360° decoration
  • Highly stable, perfectly accurate seaming process at a wide processing window

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.
