Tube Filling & Skin Packaging of 1 oz. Grease Tubes for the Electrical Industry
Pack Logix is an industry leading provider of turnkey contract packaging services for lubrication products. We packaged the 1 oz. grease tube shown here for a customer in the electrical industry. Using a combination of in-house capabilities and outsourced services to achieve the best mix of quality and economy, we produced 25,000 units within a 4 week turnaround.
We purchased blank white HDPE tubes, which featured dimensions of 25 mm x 89 mm as well as blind orifice and screw cap, and printed them in house using a 3-color offset printing. Our fully automatic high-speed tube filling equipment was used to cleanly insert the product, and the fill weight was checked in process every 100 units. The skin cards, which measured 3.75" in width and 5.5" in height, were delivered already printed and ready for us to laminate and assemble into the final package. After checking the tube and card alignment on each unit, we boxed them in quantities of 12 per carton, then labeled and shipped to the customer.
Our in-house capabilities and reliable supply network enabled us to provide this full service solution both rapidly and economically. If you would like to learn more about how our diverse range of packaging options can simplify your next packaging project, contact us today.
