K3 Plus – Seam Machine

Our K3 PLUS model is our 3rd generation seamer of its kind. This stand alone machine operates at 500 meter per minute and forms the sleeves via an adjustable forming section. The machine is available in 300mm lay-flat model.

The new technology eliminates the forming tool for folding and adds a third tension zone which leads to a long list of advantages.

Ideal for converters looking for maximizing innovation by allowing integration of any type of device in 1st tension zone, ease of use driven by machine’s ability to reduce operator’s intervention and no complex tooling for narrow lay flats.

This new machine promises to revolutionize the way shrink sleeves are converted.
