Why Choose Karlville?

For past 20 years, we have been providing shrink sleeves solutions for the global market place. From our humble beginnings, we have been leading the space through our dedication & commitment. From the direct injection system, now a standard in industry, to adjustable lay flat forming system, another standard, to the introduction of Seaming Solvents venture, we are constantly brining new concepts to our industry. Our latest introduction, the third generation seamer to become a new standard in the industry.

Servo driven automatic feedback LF forming table along with extra tension zone between unwind and rewind for tightest LF tolerance in the industry.

Secondary ultrasonic edge guide for solvent with new brush needle applicator for smooth edges and high accuracy for solvent lay down.

Again, being the first, Karlville drives innovation with lasers. Laser scoring, installed between the unwind turret and forming section in its on tension zone, allows converters to score in register at full speeds. The introduction of pre perforated sleeves to application machines allows for higher efficiency and speeds versus perforating mechanically during the label application. Designing continuous laser perforations to match the shrink characteristics of the bottle make recycling tear strips effective and better looking. To the delight of the consumer, tamper evidence can be improved with laser with spiral and innovative designs.

Stepping out of our machine business, Karlville invest in Seaming Solvents to provide a source of seaming solutions for the market. Utilizing a global network, we have production sites in North America, Europe and LATAM. With pre established chemistry, Seaming Solvents aims to mitigate supply chain issues.

Recyclability and Returnable bottles are key factors for a circular economy. Sleeves are a great alternative as they offer light barrier and no adhesive to the bottle, thus easy to remove to facilitate post-consumer processing. We collaborate with material suppliers for the introduction of such within our customer base. At our facilities, you will find the latest in materials and sustainable solutions as PCR, Polyolefins, Compostable, De-Seaming Technology, Washable Inks, Floatable and new PET Resins.
