Our 5-Step Customized Lamination Process
All products have their own unique qualities, which is why they need customized lamination services. At CTI, we utilize an extensive five-step process to devise the best solutions.
Our process begins with a complimentary consultation. This helps us get to know you and your goals. We will then determine whether our capabilities are suitable for your project. This also allows us to see the status of your production cycle and the resources needed to complete it. The consultation is thorough, as we don’t want anyone to waste time or money if we aren’t a good fit.
Research and Development
At CTI, we pride ourselves on having well-planned, modular format, state-of-the-art research and development facilities. In addition, we employ some of the most experienced and knowledgeable engineers. Without having to make a big investment, you will receive the benefits of our labs, equipment, and technical expertise. We will develop the best materials and adhesive techniques that will lead to the best outcome.
Lab Tests and Sample Creations
To check on the progress of a product, we can create a small production of samples. Our equipment typically allows us to produce them quickly and easily. For this service, we keep your cost to a minimum. These are samples for review purposes, to examine and determine whether further changes are necessary.
The next step is a trial run for your products. This is a good way to see if there could be any issues to deal with before actual production begins. Our variety of equipment can simulate real production conditions, giving you a great way to evaluate the production environment. This also provides you with insight into information related to capacity, line speed, and time. A trial run also supplies you with products you can then test yourself and give to customers or managers for their evaluation.
If everything seems to be on track, we will then start the final production. We will devote our facilities, equipment, and technicians to processing your finished products. Our ultimate goal is to ensure your items receive the best laminating services possible. We also want you to get the most for your time and money.
Of course, by utilizing our equipment and technicians, you are saving the cost of investing in those production costs. Additionally, you are receiving help with your manufacturing process, which may shorten the length of your production cycle.
The Industries We Serve with Our Laminating Services
We work with a variety of manufacturers that need lamination for their products. These include roofing materials, construction parts, and office furniture. We also help automotive businesses find the best adhesive solutions. One such customer came to us with the goal of laminating a non-woven material to aluminum. Unable to find help elsewhere, they came to us and we quickly solved the problem. With parts ranging from 20″ to 48″ wide and 30″ to 60″ in length, we supplied the required production steps with the specified material.
Another customer that needed lamination was from the absorbent product industry. In order to be successful, their product required laminating a moisture barrier to an absorbent material. We accomplished this easily by utilizing a method that uses a water-based gravure. In addition, we helped them create short runs of their product, freeing up their machines to run larger volume products.
