Brampton, Ontario, Canada: StackTeck is pleased to announce that they will be exhibiting at the Fakuma 2018 Show for the first time. This show takes place in Friedrichshafen, Germany from October 16th to October 20th, 2018. 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.
The StackTeck booth # A6-6116 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), thinwall, In Mold Labeling (IML), medical and closure technologies.
A 4 cavity TRIM mold for a 200 ml round IML cup will be running in the Ilsemann Automation booth No. 7403-Hall A7, in a high performance Arburg machine.
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. 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.
