StackTeck Ltd., a manufacturer of high-volume production tooling solutions for the packaging (caps and closures and thin-wall containers), medical, and consumer products, announced its commitment to the company’s existing In-Mold Labeling (IML) pilot cell. As with previous generations of IML pilot cells, the third generation cell at StackTeck used automation equipment from ABB or CBW Automation.
However, the demand for IML prototyping has been on-going and growing. To accommodate this demand, StackTeck has purchased the automation as a permanent asset that will maintain the cell availability for customers on an ongoing basis. Commenting on the acquisition of the automation for StackTeck’s IML pilot cell, Jordan Robertson, GM of Business Development and Marketing, said that previously, the company used automation equipment on load from the automation suppliers.
