StackTeck delivers turnkey system to Chilean packaging processor

StackTeck Systems Ltd. announced the one-year anniversary of the delivery of two 96-cavity 1881 closure systems to its customer Envases CMF in Chile. Envases CMF has reached a one-year milestone as a new producer of beverage caps.

"There was an ambitious schedule that called for a smooth and aggressive production ramp-up. Envases CMF entrusted us with the mold, machine, auxiliaries, cooling, inspection and decoration, including integration at their facility in Chile."

Jordan Robertson, general manager of business development and marketing for StackTeck, explained that each of the two systems consisted of a 420-ton Demag E1-Exis molding machine. "There was a range of auxiliary suppliers, however, one of the key suppliers was IMD Vista for part handling and inspection," said Robertson, adding that the first system was complete eight months after StackTeck received the order.

According to Envases CMF operations manager, Luis H. Girod, "StackTeck has not only been a supplier but really a partner. Their team has always showed us their professionalism, expertise and business knowledge. Those are qualities that confirm that our choice of StackTeck was the right one. After millions of cycles, the injection molds are in perfect shape and continue producing CSD 1881 caps with the same quality that they have since the beginning. As a result of our excellent experience with StackTeck, we have gained new business and we hope to continue doing so in the future."
