Two-shot Injection Molding
In two shot injection molding, a product is formed by injecting two different materials into the same mold. These materials are not injected simultaneously, but rather in succession. It is, however, done in one manufacturing step in which the product is not ejected from the mold between the two shots.

In Mold Labeling Automation
In Mold Labeling (IML) is the process of adding a label to a plastic product before injecting the plastic.
The video below demonstrates a single cavity in mold labeling application.
The process of injection molding is both complex and fascinating. Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastics materials. The material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a custom mold where it cools and hardens to the shape of the mold. The molds can be very complex and are manufactured to our customer’s strict specifications. Please watch the videos below of some of our plastics injection molding machines in action.
