How Inviseam changed the face of the cosmetic industry

PackSys Global has introduced many new technologies to the cosmetic industry in addition to developing new machinery. One of its undisputed success stories has been Inviseam®, which was offered to the market over a decade ago now.

PackSys Global introduced Inviseam in its laminate tube machines a decade ago and since then it has been a catalyst for today's trend for cosmetic laminate tubes. Whereas most laminate tubes have an overlap, Inviseam technology allows butt-welding of the laminate, making the seam almost invisible to the consumer.

Inviseam is produced on the LTR2, which also allows for 360 degree printing, similar to extruded tubes but with the lower cost and higher quality possible from printing in the flat.

This technology allows tube manufacturers to use laminate tubes for the cosmetic industry to give nearly the same feel and appearance as extruded tubes. Inviseam technology continues to be unrivaled in the market, ten years after its introduction.

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.
