Leveraging StackTeck’s technology for sustainable solutions has allowed us to incorporate our TRIM™ technology when molding pails, reducing the weight of an industry standard 5-gallon pail by 113 grams.
StackTeck began this pail mold development by benchmarking several different 5-gallon pail molds with thick rim features that presented a cooling challenge. Most of these reference parts typically run in the range of 16-18 seconds. TRIM™ involves molding ultra-thin panels with flow leaders that assist with part filling and maintain part strength. This approach allows StackTeck to offer part weight savings that support a sustainable approach for injection molded pails in the market.
The TRIM™ panels on this pail have been reduced to 0.059 inches.
