Brampton, Ontario, Canada: StackTeck Systems Ltd., a global manufacturer of high-volume production molds for thinwall packaging, closures, PET preforms, personal care and medical products, will display a thinwall 2×8 stack mold with TRIMTM design at the K Show in Dusseldorf.
Thinwall parts will be molded using 30% recycled PP content with StackTeck’s proprietary TRIMTM ultra-thin panels covering a large proportion of the bottom panel of this round 16 oz. container. Pushed to the limit, TRIMTM technology has been demonstrated to lightweight conventional thinwall designs by 10-40% of part weight, however container strength is adversely affected. Using this new bottom panel TRIMTM, the sidewall and bottom corner wall thicknesses are not affected, and hence 5% light weighting can be achieved without affecting top load and some other key performance criteria.
This high-volume system will be running at the Arburg’s booth Hall 13, A-13 in a 600 T machine featuring a high-speed robot for part removal.
This mold combines the advantages of using the stack mold technology for increased productivity, while offering a sustainable solution bringing weight savings with the use of the TRIMTM technology.
