StackTeck’s TRIM proposal dramatically light weighted a thinwall container resulting in a weight reduction of more than 35% – a key accomplishment in our overall sustainability strategy. The costs to change the part were minimized by a plan to replace core components only in the existing production mold. Once converted, the mold continued to run with the original molding machine and IML automation. 90% of the surface area of the container was thinned out to unprecedented levels while maintaining top load strength, high quality IML decoration, original rim thickness and bale lug features for the pail handle.
