Abate Basilio
Moulds for Packaging

Moulds for buckets and containers

Abate Basilio, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high performance moulds including moulds for truncated cone-shaped containers intended for food and chemical use, offers several patented solutions for closing buckets and containers; thanks to the innovative Quadrowings® and Triplock® patents it also offers simple, double or triple closing systems which can be integrated with the extraordinary IMA® technology which allows the handle to be automatically inserted.

Thin Wall Packaging Molds

Abate Basilio moulds are renown for high quality, reliability and efficiency, every mould is built with great care and attention. Thanks to the expertise acquired over 47 years, our company has developed IML technology which allows decorative images to be directly applied to the product during the moulding process.

Containers come in different shapes and sizes and depending on volumes required per year, we offer 2, 4, 6 or more cavities including product weight saving advantages with ultra-thin wall sections as well as different types of sealing closure designs.

Moulds for crates

Abate Basilio’s wide experience in planning and manufacturing injection moulds for crates has resulted in a variety of products. Crates of any shapes and sizes: crates for industrial and technical logistics, for food use, for bottles as well as shaped one-way crates. Thanks to the commitment of our technical department, we manufacture crates with reduced wall thickness, folding sides, with handles, and with side decoration thanks to IML technology, as well as foldable crates

Our planning department also offers our customers quick prototyping as well as FEM (finite element method) and logistic analysis of the final product.

Moulds for flower pots

Thanks to the patents developed over the years, namely Square the circle®, Innercore®, Vaba® and Flexomould®, Abate Basilio is able to plan and manufacture moulds for pots by using unique technology, such as the elastic system for opening the draining holes, which provide logistic and production advantages to the customer. We use high grade materials which ensure longevity, reliability and performance of the mould over the time.
