10PROCESS FLOW OF LAMINATE TUBES Blank laminate is loaded onto the printerLaminate is printed and slitPrinted Laminate is loaded where it is indexed, trimmed, wrapped & seamedSleeves travel to the mandrelNeck & Shoulder are attached to the sleeveNow it takes the complete shape of the tubeTubes travel to the mondrel, where top seal is applied.Then the Cap is fixed.It further goes for Final Inspection.And then the Packing takes place.
13ADVANTAGES OF LAMI TUBES PROTECTIVE, BARRIER PROPERTIESNON –TOXIC AND HYGIENICELEGANT AND ATTRACTIVEPRINTABILITYLEAKPROOFWRINKLE RESISTANCEUSER CONVENIENCESQUEEZABLETubes remain flexible, soft and smooth at any stage of useEnhanced shelf appealConsistent quality and performanceWide range of caps - fez/flower can be usedPin hole orifice for low viscosity products , added feature
14PROCESS FLOW OF ALUMINUM TUBES Slugs are brought to tumbler, for tumblingSlugs are loaded into hopperSlugs are extruded into tubesTubes are now transferred to mandrel, where the open and neck ends are trimmed.Further, they are transferred to high temperature zone for annealing.After annealing takes place, they are brought to the cooling zone.Then they are further taken to lacquer station, where interior is coated with lacquer.Then they are taken for external coating.Further, they are transferred to priniting mandrel, where printing takes place.
15Montebello is continuing to develop its aerosolan market After going through the drying oven for drying of printing, it is taken for cap application. Tubes are capped.Then they are transferred to apply crimping sealant.And now the final inspection stage takes place.Tubes are inspected and moved for packagingMontebello is continuing to develop its aerosolan marketFrom smallTo BIG

17CLOSURES ARE ALSO CALLED AS CAP The Cap is the last component of the tube. There is a wide variety available as shown in the pic.There is unique application of caps.Caps give increased safety for products packaged in tubes
18IMPORTANT PARAMETERS TO BE KEPT IN MIND The Product to be packedCapacity , i.e. quantity of product to be packedDiameter of the tubeLength of the tubeWhether tube is to be plain or printedMatter to be printed on external surface of the tubes
