SAESA® series - Laminate tube making machine

SAESA® laminate tube making technology is a process using printed laminate, moulded shoulders and caps in order to assemble them into finished tubes ready to be filled.

■ Advantages
・Scalability by simply multiplying the assembly stations, machines run from 100 to 600 tubes per minute with compact footprints.
・High performance, process times are not slowed down by cooling time required of a component moulding process.
・Shoulder and cap are assembled on the same mandrel.
・High flexibility to add additional value capabilities such as cap or shoulder orientation, oval and temper evidence applicator.
・Cold shoulder allows for a more stable capping process eliminating the risk of shrinkage from an inline moulding operation.

■ Available
On SAESA®100 Hiflex , SAESA®120 , SAESA®200 Hiflex, SAESA®240 and SAESA®600 Line machines running at outputs of 100, 120, 200, 240 and 600 tubes/min.

■ Markets
According to our knowledge, more than 33 billion laminate tubes, are sold yearly and when looking at the installed machine capacity 58% comes from machines delivered by Aisa.
The largest market segment for laminate tubes are toothpaste producers but U43not only, from 12.7 mm diameter artistic paint tubes, over 19 mm pharmaceutical eye ointments all the way to 40 mm sweet condensed milk and 50 mm cosmetic hair treatment shampoos, SAESA® tubes have countless applications today.

SAESA®100 Hiflex

Most flexible fully automatic machine dedicated to the production of ABL or PBL laminate tubes at a speed of up to 100 tubes per minute, with traditional overlap or edge welding side seam.

■ Key benefits
• Decoseam™ 360 degrees decoration
• Simple and very efficient transfer and tooling
• Adapted technology to the tube market of today and tomorrow
• Integrated electrical cabinet
• Quick change-over
• Small footprint
• Low maintenance
• Same operational method as other SAESA® models

PTH Series - Tube heading machine

The PTH series is a plastic tube heading machine. The PTH uses compression molding technology to produce quality extruded plastic packaging tubes.

■ Advantages
・Extruder with axial pressure piston for better material melts and fast colour change.
・Optimised extruder and dosing heating profile for evenly low tempered doses and improved sleeve welding.
・Spiral flow dosing head for stress free symmetrical doses.
・Volumetric dosing eliminates dose weight variation.
・High cooling moulds available designed and produced in-house with laser sintering.
・Adaptive two-step compression process enabling compression mode choice according to material and design criteria.

■ Available
On PTH 90, PTH 100, PTH120, PTH 150, and PTH 240 machines running at outputs of 90, 95, 147, and 240 tubes/min.

PTH 120

State-of-the-art, fully automatic machine used for the heading of tubes at a speed of up to 120 pieces per minute using the well-proven compression moulding technology from Aisa.

■Key benefits
• Robust and reliable machine for minimized production costs
• Very compact with easy access
• Friendly-user interface
• Great flexibility to meet countless tube design needs of today and tomorrow
• Flexible line integration solution to suit various configurations
• Compatibility with existing standard Synchroflow™ tooling

BM series - Side seame welding machine

BM series offers a machine specialized in side seam welding for laminate tubes.

The BM 4 has different welding systems on the same machine basis. Side seam methods can be chosen depending on the base material and application.

BM120 Hiflex / BM 240 Hiflex


In the Decoseam™ process, trimmed edges of the inner layer of the web are edge welded with zero overlap. A transparent reinforcing strip is then applied on to the side seam to add the required mechanical strength. Decoseam™ is a new side seaming technology that can offer full 360° printability while still complying with all established tube performance criteria’s, including both mechanical and barrier properties! This technology developed by AISA can be proposed on selected SAESA® and BM machines equipped with DIBS (Double induction belt sealing system).

Growing demand for better decoration on tube packaging has lead to several innovations in recent years. New printing technologies available for adhesive labels now are being adopted in order to print tubes laminates.

- Greater visual impact
- Uninterrupted, 360° design integrity
- Significantly higher quality perception
- Unrestricted creative freedom
- Opens new graphics, texture and “feel” opportunities
- No significant increase in costs
- Can be implemented on multi-layer barrier structures
