And at the booth of Wave Swiss, a maker of injection machines (waveimm.com), StackTeck ran its next-generation 1881 tamper-evident carbonated soft-drink cap mold with four cavities in 2.8 sec, cutting more than 1 sec off the previous speed. Cap weight was 2.15 g.
After 5 years of operation, these molds show practically no wear or corrosion.
If any part of the mold is damaged due to an operation mistake or any other accident, we then order it. When the part arrives, we mount it and the mold works perfectly. We don’t experience what has happened to us with other molds in which each cavity or core is different so that adjustments are needed for each spare.
The manufacturing cycle times of these molds are very fast, which indicates that the design of the molds and especially their cooling is excellent.
During the 19 years that Goplas has been operating, we have bought molds from many companies in different countries; Italy, Germany, Mexico, China and Canada. From all of the injection molds that we have, only two have delivered results that are above the expectations that we had for them. Both molds were made by StackTeck in Canada.
According to Envases CMF Operations Manager, Luis H. Girod: “StackTeck has not only been a supplier but really a partner. Their team has always showed us their professionalism, expertise and business knowledge. Those are qualities that confirm that our choice of StackTeck was the right one. In terms of quality, there are no doubts. After millions of cycles the injection molds are in perfect shape and continue producing CSD 1881 Caps with the same quality that they have since the beginning. As a result of our excellent experience with StackTeck, we have gained new business and we hope to continue doing so in the future.”
“There are 3 elements that I can highlight from my experience of having worked with StackTeck: the order and cleanliness they maintain in their manufacturing plant, the integrity of the company as well as the diversity of customers that they deal with and finally, the human qualities of their team.
Based on my personal experience, I recommend StackTeck for the quality of its molds and the professionalism of its technical, accounting and engineering staff. After 25 years of being in this industry, I can say that it was a very pleasant experience to have found a company like StackTeck”
Working with Stackteck has provided me with an assurance of working with a team of thorough professionals. StackTeck's engineering strength combined with excellent customer care are among the many characteristics that have helped me with various projects.
Mold standardization and the scalability feature have been a success with some of our mold programs. In Engineering StackTeck is willing to undertake Analysis over and beyond basic services offered.
StackTeck handles and supports every project(small or large) with the same level of enthusiasm.
My favorite part of dealing with StackTeck is that I have never been refused a project by StackTeck. StackTeck's capability and the willingness to take risks have always provided me with assurance that has, in turn, helped me confidently take on challenges at my end.
I contacted StackTeck as a result of the recommendation from other companies that had worked in other projects with them. Based on that recommendation, we did an evaluation of StackTeck to determine if their capacity and vocation were suitable to fulfill the expectations that INOVA PHARMAPLASTICS S.A. de C.V. had.
In the evaluation of the company, we visited their facilities and interacted with their specialists including the ones that manufacture the molds as well as their representatives in Mexico, whom surprised us greatly and surpassed the technical and service expectations that can be anticipated for a specialty supplier.
They always showed their professionalism and seriousness during the development of the project, and they inspired trust in our working team in each of the stages of the project and all the way to its successful completion.
The fact that they have first class manufacturing facilities and a center to test molds with similar characteristics to those of a production plant that can be used to fine tune molds before they are shipped to the customer, allowed for the project to be done in a safe and transparent way for us.
It’s because of all of the above that I highly recommend StackTeck as a supplier of molds and post-sale mold service as they are a company that is serious, responsible, organized, and passionate about customer service and the execution of successful projects.
Contenedores IEM, S.A. de C.V. (IEMCO) is a manufacturer of medium and wide mouth PET jars and closures located in Monterrey México for the food and cosmetic industries with over 25 years of experience.
StackTeck has been our partner since 1999. We still have the first 4 cavity 110mm closure mold that was bought to TRADESCO (now StackTeck) this mold has been running for 16 years with +25 million cycles, still working perfectly.
We also have an 8 cavity 110mm closure mold that has more than 5 million cycles and is basically new, no problems at all.
Due to the excellent performance of their molds during the past years, we recently bought a 110mm Snap-On closure mold and we are in the process to buy a second 8 cavity 110mm closure mold.
All this has been achieved with the respective maintenance suggested by StackTeck.
Mold quality, materials, service and delivery time from StackTeck are exceptional.
We were assigned a project for high volume applications with a well known cosmetics firm while competing with other companies that offered the same manufactured part using a traditional injection blow mould. We were able to offer a high quality, efficient and low-cost solution. The 5 piece collapsing core technology enabled us to produce low weight parts with higher cavitation moulds, all with a 10 second cycle time versus lower cavitation and 18 second cycle time that the traditional injection blow molding offered. We were very pleased with StackTeck’s support and expertise, right from the product development stage to the design and manufacturing of the mold.
