A cycle time of sub-two seconds for a rigid package in a four-cavity tool is impressive in anyone’s books but when that cycle time also includes an in-mold labeling step, it’s surely swift. Such a process is being demonstrated at the Stork booth (13/D72).

The fastest injection press at K?

The Stork Food Line 2500 250-tonne hybrid press features electrical screw drive and automation from Brink. The 6-gram closure is molded from impact copolymer polypropylene from Sabic, and wall thickness is 0.35 mm. The in-mold labels were  supplied by Verstraete.

The machine cycled at speeds of down to 1.96 seconds during PlasticsToday’s visit to the Stork stand, and the word is cycle time might be limited by the take-out speed. The machine might even be capable of 1.8-second cycles.

Stork also offers electric clamping as well as full-electric options on the injection press.
