StackTeck Showcases its Unique Stack Mold and TRIM Technologies

Brampton, Ontario, Canada: StackTeck Systems Ltd., a global manufacturer of high volume injection molding solutions for  thinwall packaging, closures, PET preforms, personal care and medical products, will display a thinwall 2X8 stack mold with TRIMTM design running in the BMB booth W727 at the NPE2024 tradeshow in Orlando next week.

Thinwall parts will be molded 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 by applying the TRIM panels all over the part, however container strength can be adversely affected. An alternative approach is to apply bottom TRIMTM panels only, while 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 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.

According to Jordan Robertson, StackTeck’s VP Business Development and Marketing “The TRIM technology is a unique approach to lightweighting that has been gaining acceptance over time.  We have now built large stack molds with this technology for thinwall containers, as well as expanding the range of applications to include rectangular, tamper evident, and ice cream applications.  As compared to other lightweighting approaches, it has proven to be simple and reliable, while also working well with other technologies such as multi-gating.”

This high-volume system will be running in BMB’s booth W727 with a high speed side entry robot supplied by MULLER Technology.
