With hundreds of Standard & over 50 PLUS series machines installed globally, the new technology platform yields higher performance, production quality and accuracy with friendly operator interface & controls.
August 18, 2022 – Karlville took leadership in the shrink sleeve converting market by changing the way sleeves are made. Designing the PLUS series started with gathering decades of comments from our customers and pooling our experience to solve the main issues that plague the traditional seamers:
- Complex operations requiring specialty/ highly skillful operators
- Long set-ups and high waste
- Limitations to seam position
- Complex narrow layflats
Our customers enjoy the many advantages of the PLUS series that are combined with Karlville’s long experience with non-stop machines. The K5 Plus, a turret-to-turret seamer, is now offered with a laser perforation station, another first in the market. Speak with us for more details.
To go along with the PLUS series seamers, Karlville has recently launched the high end iPlus inspection machine, which operates at 500m/min with MMI controlled oscillation.
Karlville’s dedication to the shrink sleeve market is highlighted once more with Seaming Solvents, a sister company that distributes blends for seaming. With locations in the US, Canada, Europe and Mexico, Seaming Solvents is a true global supplier with state-of-the-art manufacturing and the industry’s highest quality standards.
Our vision is clear and strategic. The PLUS series is part of a three-year launch that started with the friction free automatic & closed loop Lay flat forming section that was integrated into our multi directional non-stop turrets with the possibility of laser perforations on the unwind. In 2023 & 2024, we will be partnering to bring to market new alternatives with a sustainable leadership unlike any other machine manufacturer. Our commitment to our customers and industry is clear as we invest into new technology that at the end will allow us to grow not only as a machine company but also as an industry”, commented Raul Matos, VP of Sales, and Marketing at Karlville
Ben Cunningham, Sales Director for the Shrink Converting Platforms, on the other hand, said, “The PLUS series has had a tremendous impact on the market, during the pandemic our K5 Plus converted billions of sleeves. Our technology, combined with Karlville’s service and understanding of the shrink sleeve space gives us the edge to lead this industry. “
