StackTeck is pleased to announce they will be exhibiting at the Expo Plasticos 2017 Show that will take place in Guadalajara, Mexico from March 28th to March 30th, 2017. StackTeck will be showcasing one of its precision, high-tech molds featuring its enhanced TRIM (Thin Recess Injection Molding) technology for ultra-lightweight packaging applied to single-serve applications.
TRIM technology applied now to single-serve applications allows downstream printing in an area that can cover 75% of the part’s sidewalls which translates into the lowest possible cost injection molding option.
A 4 cavity TRIM mold for a 200 ml round IML cup will be running in the Arburg booth No. 1400 in a high performance Arburg machine.
“We are excited to introduce this new enhanced Ultra-thin technology in Mexico for the first time. Visitors at Expo Plasticos will be able to see how to mold a cup that has ultra-thin panels of .008” (0.2 mm) thickness, offering the lowest possible cost with printable capabilities, while keeping IML as an option for this type of application,” said Christopher Day, Business Manager for Mexico and Latin America.
It has been demonstrated that with the use of TRIM technology, conventional lightweight parts with an L/T (ratio of length to average thickness) up to 300, can be made thinner with additional light-weighting of 30-40% by weight.
Static displays in the StackTeck booth No. 1517 will feature the latest technologies with plastic parts. Some of these include: servo driven technology for different applications, co-injection, multi-material, TRIM (Thin Recess Injection Molding), IML and closure technologies.
