The Importance Of High-Quality Seams

| Shrink Sleeves

~ Murray Kehler, think4D Operations Manager

In the world of shrink sleeve production, one of the defining elements that sets a great sleeve apart from the rest is the quality of its seam. A high-quality seam is not only aesthetically pleasing but also ensures flawless performance during application. At think4D, we take great pride in consistently delivering top-notch sleeves to our customers.

Our commitment to excellence is evident in the rock-solid seams expertly placed on each sleeve. Through years of industry experience, we’ve fine-tuned our production process to achieve optimal results. The secret lies in the meticulous crafting of seams, utilizing the perfect combination of materials and techniques. This level of precision is what sets think4D sleeves apart, making them a reliable choice for seamless feeding and effortless application.

A crucial aspect of our success is the development of the optimal seaming “recipe” in our production process. From the use of top-quality seaming solvents to the implementation of cutting-edge automation, we have created a foolproof system. This ensures that the solvent is not only properly metered but also precisely placed, guaranteeing that think4D sleeves feed and apply with unparalleled ease.

So, what makes a good seam?  A good seam is more than just visually appealing; it’s a mark of durability and attention to detail through two primary features:

  • It holds without bursting:  A hallmark of a good seam is its ability to hold without bursting. Our seams are engineered to withstand the rigors of application, ensuring that they remain intact and functional throughout the life of the product.
  • It has a smooth finish:  The placement of the seaming solvent is a critical factor in achieving a smooth finish after application. At think4D, we take pride in ensuring that the solvent reaches the edge of the seam during the converting process. This attention to detail means that our finished sleeves not only look great but also feel smooth to the touch.

In the competitive landscape of shrink sleeve production, the emphasis on high-quality seams sets think4D apart as an industry leader. Our commitment to excellence, from the selection of materials to the precision of our automation, ensures that our sleeves consistently meet and exceed customer expectations. For a flawless application and a visually stunning finished product, think4D sleeves stand as a testament to the artistry and expertise embedded in our production process.
