StackTeck Systems Inc. has developed TRIM technology for thinning out the part wall section of injection molded packaging.
TRIM, for thin recess injection molding, can cut part weight by 20-40 percent, from conventional thin-wall part design.
We believe that we can achieve part weights that will make injection molding much more competitive against thermoforming, while maintaining key functional features such as the tamper-evident rim on a container and a high top load compression strength, said President Randy Yakimishyn.
Stack¬Teck of Brampton, Ontario, is showcasing TRIM in an in-mold-labeling pilot cell at its plant. The cell is a joint effort by press maker Netstal Machinery Inc. and IML robot maker CBW Automation.
