An increasingly competitive marketplace means that effective design of plastic packaging product is extremely vital in relation to advertising, marketing, and ultimately, sales.
This is where the In-Mould Labelling process provides an excellent alternative to conventional decoration techniques. In-Mould Labelling is a highly advanced decoration method for plastics, in which the prefabricated plastic label is positioned directly into the mould by a special handling robot. The result is a decorated end product completed in a single process - with no need for subsequent labelling or printing.
The IML Technology is suitable for a multitude of container geometries i.e. almost any shape from round to polygonal.
Thermoforming is a manufacturing process that forms thermoplastic sheet, film into a usable product.
Specifically, it is a moulding process, where flat plastic sheets or film from a role or an epoxy coated onto a material or composite are converted into formed and finished merchandise. The sheet or film is then heated in an oven to its forming temperature, then stretched into or onto a mould and cooled.
Thermoforming differs from injection moulding and other forms of processing plastics,and is primarily used in the manufacture of disposable cups, containers, lids, trays,blisters, clamshells, and other simple products with large radii.
