High-speed labelling

In-mould labelling (IML) injection moulding is a highly-innovative and efficient manufacturing process that combines the decoration and injection moulding of plastic parts into a single step. It involves placing a pre-printed label or film into a cavity, and then injecting melted plastic into the mould. This fuses the label with the plastic material. The result is a high-quality product with a visually-appealing surface finish. Furthermore, IML presents an answer to the ever-growing demand for a sustainable manufacturing process: The mono-material product design is the ideal solution for recycling. Making it a more eco-friendly choice for a variety of applications.

  1. Printing and cropping of labels
  2. Pick up and insertion of the label into the mould
  3. Injection
  4. Take-out of the finished part and insertion of a new label
  5. Quality inspection via camera system
  6. Stacking and packing of 100% flawless parts
  1. Recyclability due to mono-material
  2. Design freedom through a wide range of look and feel options and maximum print quality
  3. Quick design changes by simply shifting from one label to another
  4. Energy efficiency through combining the decoration and injection moulding process into one single step
  5. Hygenic and long-lasting labels, that are resistant to fading, scratching, temperature changes, and humidity
  1. Food packaging (e.g. cups, trays, tins)
  2. Industrial packaging (e.g. pails, cartridges)
  3. Reusable packaging (e.g. drinking cups, fast food and takeaway solutions)
  4. Household products (e.g. storage boxes, toys)
  5. Medical and cosmetic parts (e.g. tubes, jars, syringes)
