Beck Automation’s Basic IML (In-Mould Labeling) series is now available for two cavities.
The new variant is suitable for 1 to 5 litre buckets, and complements the established BASIC IML model, which is deployed for buckets with product sizes from 5 to 33 litres and was designed for one cavity.
The basic structure comprises a stable and compact machine frame – with rapid movements made possible through the robust machine frame and the use of high-performance servo motors made by Beckhoff.
The labels are removed from the magazine and centred, ready for application.
The labels are retrieved cyclically and positioned directly on the cores. The labels are electrostatically charged and fixed in position in the mould by means of our newly developed sintered cores. Simultaneously, the injection-moulded products are removed from the ejector side of the machine and the finished products are stacked directly on the conveyor belt.
The main arm, which enters the open injection moulding machine from the side, is mounted on a stable linear axis.
