Folding and Gluing Minneapolis
Larkin Industries specializes in several print finishing techniques including folding and gluing near Minneapolis. By using this process, we can help you create pocket folders, CD/DVD sleeves, gift card holders, shipping envelopes and small packages to hold retail products.
Folding and gluing is the process used to convert a flat sheet into a finished product, such as a box, envelope or promotional item. Most of these items are designed to hold inserts or similar materials.
The process of folding and gluing involves folding the blank sheet along pre-creased lines and applying the adhesive that will hold the product together. Folding and gluing can be performed on a wide range of materials including cardboard, plastics and paper.
Most folded and glued items are produced from die cut sheets. As a die-cut and creased blank sheet passes through the folder-gluer machine, a selection of specially positioned guides, rotary hooks and other devices fold its panels to the required position while adhesive systems apply cold glue or hot-melt adhesive to appropriate locations.
The folded and glued piece will then be place under pressure for the adhesive to cure as it is transferred to delivery. Highly sophisticated control systems track the sheet during the process and, in conjunction with quality assurance equipment, will eject any product that does not conform to pre-determined criteria.
