In-mould labelling with high-quality graphics

Husky Injection Molding Systems : 09 June, 2004  (New Product)
Global demand for complete in-mould labelling solutions for thin wall container and lid packaging is growing at double-digit rates.
Global demand for complete in-mould labelling solutions for thin wall container and lid packaging is growing at double-digit rates.

The primary driver of this growth is the ability to better differentiate products through higher-quality decoration. In some cases, in-mould labelling has directly increased sales volumes by more than 30%. Processors also benefit from the elimination of separate downstream printing operations, which helps reduce inventory needs.

Husky, a long-time leader in innovative systems for thin wall moulding, has partnered with key global suppliers to provide a turnkey in-mould labelling solution.

“Processors expect high-quality graphics capabilities, process simplification, and high efficiencies,” Bruce Catoen, Husky’s Vice President, Automated Systems, says. “By combining Husky moulds and Hylectric machines with in-mould automation, we deliver the industry’s leading in-mould labelling solutions.”

Husky’s in-mould labelling solution provides cycle savings and a higher-quality part versus competitive systems. A label pre-positioning station decouples the label wrapping from the robot, allowing time for alignment, while a linear robot drive provides unparalleled speed and position accuracy. A collapsing take-out plate reduces clamp stroke.

The Hylectric’s large tiebar spacing provides the room for side-entry robot access and mould layout flexibility.

The Hylectric’s moving platen rides on linear bearings to ensure the mould is aligned to the robot for accurate label placement.

Customers can evaluate label performance for their particular applications by taking advantage of Husky’s container and lid prototyping system for limited volume runs and market trials.
