In-Mould Labelling (IML)
Over the last decade we have built up our expertise in IML applications working on varied projects, with many clients coming back to us each time they have a further requirement.
The project highlighted in the video shows an IML application, where the process starts with end-of-arm tooling picking up a specially made thin film (the label) from a stack and placing on to the mould tool in the moulding machine. The film is kept in place with the help of tiny suction pores in the tool.
An alternative method would be to apply a static charge on the film to keep it in place inside the mould tool.The moulded part is collected by an operator and quality checked prior to despatch.
