5 Piece Collapsing Core Technology to Produce Paint Cans
David Bacon, General Manager KW Containers commented: “We are using this technology to produce cans in sizes of 0.5 Liter, 1 Liter, and 1 Quart round cans. We are very pleased to have found a more sustainable option to produce our cans that use recycled PP material supplied by our sister company, KW Plastics. StackTeck has impressed us with the advanced cooling in these molds, which allows us to maintain a fast cycle time.”

Running 30% faster
"I wanted to give you an update on our new tools. Both molds are running faster cycles and our QC department has approved the parts. This is a big improvement for us….and will allow us to run the newest assembly equipment at speeds over 30% faster than our old equipment. We are very excited to be moving into production with these molds!"

Setting new Speed Benchmarks II
A 2 x 8 stack mold running thinwall, 16-oz dairy containers at what was said to be an "unprecedented" cycle time of 3.3 sec. It ran on an Engel all-electric e-speed 650T press.

Setting new Speed Benchmarks
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.

High-quality, efficient, low-cost Solution
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.

Breakthrough Technology for high-volume high-barrier food containers
Kortec Inc. has recently achieved another industry first with its successful development and production of a turnkey manufacturing cell for producing high barrier food containers. The cell employs a StackTeck 64-cavity stack mold (2 x 32) that is co-injection molding multilayer thinwall plastic food containers with an inner and outer layer of PP, and a barrier layer of EVOH. The system currently produces parts at a rate of greater than 200 million parts per year at a cycle time of 7.5 seconds.
