IML is combining the decoration process (labelling) with the molding process of a plastic piece. IML, namely In-Mold Labelling, is the technology used to apply pre-printed labels to a plastic product, becoming an integral part of the same. In order to reach this result, labels are automatically picked and placed in the mold before the injection, as it is necessary that they adhere without moving. Our IML systems realize this precise and accurate positioning of labels, either single or multiple.
Dal Maschio designs and manufactures all the customizations necessary to create an IML system, according to customers requests: electrostatic foam dummy cores, specific end-of-arm tools and label paper, contour templates support for label papers.
