Deutscher Text

In 1987, with twenty years of experience in designing tools and machines for the tube industry, Henry Ueberegger started out with a little tool shop. Now, more than 30 years later, his tool shop has grown into a company which offers state-of-the-art tube body making, heading, top sealing and capping machines.

The goal from the beginning was to create high quality equipment that is realiable, cost effective and flexible. This goal has become the main motivation behind all projects at Combitool AG.

Thanks to the continuous cooperation of our loyal worldwide customers, we have become a highly qualified engineering company specialized in size parts and machines for the world tube industry.

Specialized staff with support from expert consultants achieve uncompromised precision. This also allows plenty of room for new ideas to grow.

In 2014 Combitool AG became a Member of PackSys Global Group, a group that designs and manufactures full lines for producing laminate and extruded tubes and plastic beverage caps. The knowledge behind this extended portfolio enables Combitool Solutions to strengthen its already successful portfolio and customer service.

Die Technologie
The cosmetic and personal care industries are the main drivers for new developments in tube designs and tube manufacturing. These tubes play a critical role in product:
• Presentation
• Differentiation

• Application

The tube, being recognized as the perfect packaging for viscous products, is also used for a growing number of new products like mascara, lip balm, and applications like precision dosing, nasal applicators or dome heads.

Customers look for marketing differentiations such as best decoration, special tube design (oval, rectangular), attractive caps aligned with tube decoration and much more – and all this at the best possible price with decreasing volumes.
