PHOTO QUALITY LABELING
In-mold labeling uses robots to load labels directly into the injection molding tool. The label becomes an integral part of the product. Current technology allows for photo quality and is quickly becoming popular.
The products are often packaging materials for the food industry, but may also be other types of packaging.
Production runs at high speed, often using multi-cavity systems. With a cycle time of a few seconds, many labels are loaded, with the same number of finished products being removed simultaneously.
LABELS IN THE RIGHT PLACES
For perfect positioning of label on the product, high precision and stability are required of everything: the label magazine, label-picking, shape of the labels and correct geometry.
The IML process is our speciality. We pay particular attention to the design of the loading tools, or “dummies”. We make sure that the robot – the foundation of the automation process – is a model of reliability. The label needs to be placed perfectly every time.
CUSTOM MADE USING MODULAR BUILDING BLOCKS
Our robot systems are built using standardized modules, all of which are tried and tested, cost-effective building blocks.
We can combine modules, putting them together in a variety of well-functioning ways. For each unique project we build an optimal solution; vertical or horizontal magazines, single or double lever take-out arms, turners and stackers, you name it. The solution will be efficient, user-friendly and safe at the same time. We tailor-make our products using standardized solutions.
