Experience & range
The packaging industry today is facing stiff challenges as the clients are demanding the best packaging designs and solutions. It has become of primary importance for them to make their product look more attractive than their counterparts on the shelf.
As a packaging molder, it is now essential for you to find the right tool to produce the best in the market packaging products.
We have developed all kinds of Packaging moulds including cosmetic compact container mould, lotion container mould, lipstick mould, standard cap mould; flip top cap mould, thin wall container mould, air tight container mould, and paint container mould with seal type lids.
For high quality and volumes in production we suggest H13 Steel and German 2378 steel using hot runner. Detailed mould drawings are provided by us for every part to ensure we fufill all the requirements by the cosmetic company or packaging manufacturer.
Mould design & Quality
Injection molds for packaging, especially cosmetics packaging, produce high profile products whose appearance helps sell them to customers. The sparkling finish and unblemished surface can only be achieved using high diamond polishing. We would always recommend an A-1 level diamond polish especially in case of highly detailed packaging parts of lipstick, mascara and compact powder cases.
It is also recommended to use flash chrome to protect that diamond finish, so the mold runs longer between maintenance checks and produces a higher number of flawless parts.
Cap moulds cycle time a key factor.
Caps for packaging, while they do contribute to shelf appeal, are approached from a slightly different angle than the cosmetics packaging discussed above. In the world of high production, multicavity injection molds, any edge that can help reduce cycle time is seen as a tremendous advantage. This calls for good quality steel and a fast cooling system. Recommended steels would be 2316 for core and cavity and P20 for mould base. Even a small reduction in cycle time can mean a notable increase in both part quantities and profits.
In case of cap molds, the most important factor besides the shelf appeal is the ability to produce maximum parts in minimum time. Here the effort needs to be made to reduce the cycle time to the least possible. This calls for good quality steel and a fast cooling system. Even a small reduction in cycle time can mean a notable increase in both part quantity and profit.
Another way to achieve faster cycle time is by using the proper finishes and release coatings because
(1) By reducing the coefficient of friction it allows the resin to fill the mold more easily using less injection pressure; and,
(2) Better release properties equate to fewer imperfect parts and smoother production. Packaging molds can hugely benefit from better release on the core, corrosion protection on the cavity and core, as well as more efficient material flow.
We develop standard PET bottle cap moulds, Flip top cap mould, Pilfer proof cap mould, Anti theft cap mould, Thread cap mould
all in single and multiple cavities ranging from 28 mm to 38 mm.
We also specialise thin wall container moulds and perform moulds.
