Incoe introducing direct gating on an IML part


INCOE Corp., a global manufacturer of hot runner systems, will display a sample of an IML part using INCOE’s SoftGate valve pin velocity control technology for an innovative production method for IML/IMD (in-mold labeling and in-mold decorating) using an important process optimization. As the part, approximately 3 mm thick is produced, the plastic melt is injected between two films, one of which is also fitted with circuits to create an electrical functional film for use with controls.

The combination of IMD and IML technologies was developed by Leonhard Kurz Stiftung & Co. KG in collaboration with PolyIC GmbH & Co. KG, and developed by Roth Werkzeugbau GmbH, with the design and production of a series-ready mold.
