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.
