A good in-mold labeling process must be reliable and consistent to ensure each part and cavity receives the same amount of pressure. Scientific Molding provides the basis for developing a robust and reliable injection molded part to which the label will adhere.
Question: I am working at a location where in mold labeling is growing. Do you have process training for IML?
My Response: I our experience most IML parts are rejected due to inconsistent processing and molding defects. If the robot puts the label in the right place, but the process is not stable and reliable, then the filling profile and cavity pressure will not be consistent; resulting in an inconsistent label location & adherence. For this reason, we would recommend training on scientific molding principles to ensure the process is robust, consistent, and reliable.
