Contract Laminating is a Fast and Affordable Option
Often, outsourcing is the fastest and easiest way for companies to save steps in the manufacturing process. This is especially true when it comes to a specialized service like lamination. In most cases, contract laminating services offer the most benefits.
Why Use Contract Laminating Services?
Using outside laminating services can reduce costs for both machinery and manpower. First, there is savings by not having to invest in expensive equipment and machinery. This type of machinery can be very expensive. Second, they will not have to bring in skilled professionals or pay to train current workers. Finally, outsourced lamination means that you pay only for the services and products you need exactly when you need them. There is no long-term investment to plan.
Contract laminating is an excellent way to manufacture products in a timely manner. With experts involved in every step of production, they will provide the best quality control. If an issue arises, they will determine the optimal solution. This ensures an efficient manufacturing process. As a result, items can quickly move on to the next necessary step for finalization or go directly to the marketplace.

Our Lamination Solutions
Often companies come to us with unique issues. One customer from the auto industry wanted to compress a non-woven material and then laminate it to aluminum. After talking to several lamination firms, they believed that no one could handle the task. We proved them wrong, however. Very quickly we analyzed the problem and devised a solution. Then, we had no problem helping them meet their quota of 400,000 parts every year.
Another customer from the personal absorbent industry needed help with lamination and they called on us. Their product required the lamination of a moisture barrier to absorbent materials. Using our water-based gravure method – which offers precise control of adhesion applications – we were able to accomplish this.
