Moulds for crates

Abate Basilio & C.has more than 48 years of experience and specialized in the manufacture of injection moulds for crates, of all shapes and sizes; for industrial and logistic field, food industry, bottles crates, one way crates, shaped, with reduced wall thickness, with folding sides, with decoration, with 2K handle.

We also offer our costumers:
    Product development, including prototyping and Fem
    Mold flow simulations
    Advanced cooling design for the highest productivity
    Products calculations, such as top load, stacking and nesting features
    Weight optimization
    Clamping force needed on the IMM

  • Moldflow Simulations.

  • Long-life moulds with high quality steels for continuous production, reduce the wear and let the possibility to use regenerated plastic materials.

  • Perfect centering and easy maintenance of the cavities (see the Square the circle® technology)

  • Highly heat conductivity alloy for intensive cooling and shorter cycle times.

  • Short cycle times thanks to perfect mould design and intensive cooling system.

  • Use of stainless steels and special coating to avoid corrosion and rust.

  • Single and multiple cavities.

  • Fast ejection obtained by a mixed mechanical/pneumatic system trough our patended no leakage air valve VABA®

  • Single and multiple cavities with the advantage of the modularity of the cavities in order to let a fast changing of the molded products ,see our technology Flexomould®.

  • Possibility to insert the labels during molding.

Our expert knowledge of materials and their applications allows us to obtain incomparably reliable production systems.

Our patented technologies include mould cooling, centring, in-mould handle assembly, modularity of the cavities, ejection of the product and the design of new containers with customized closing systems specific for food and industrial purpose.

Our patents offer our customers greater advantages than the competition.

  • handle moulding and assembly onto the container directly carried out into the mould.

  • container with double lock lid and tear-off band

  • container with triple lock lid and tear-off band

  • labelling during the moulding process

  • cavity change on the same mould

  • advanced system to centre the moulds

  • enhanced
    cooling system

  • ejection valve with a safe closure

  • injection and
    compression system


Thanks to its technology, flexibility and analytical approach, Abate Basilio does not only manufacture high performance moulds for the injection of plastic materials, but also provides customized solutions for any project. Thanks to the control of the entire production chain, from planning to delivery, each mould ensures unique quality, durability and performance.

and planning

Abate offers a service of consultancy and analysis of the customer’s needs specific for each project. A specific technical knowledge is required for each sector, from food industry to chemicals, logistics etc., in order to be able to design and manufacture the more appropriate mould for a specific product.

and testing

Our production line includes 5-axis machining centres with fully automatic tool and pallets changers which allow us to achieve maximum repeatability and quickest throughput. Our machines are equipped with a laser control of the real dimensions directly obtained during the process in order to achieve the maximum precisions.

and after-sale

Our technical department ensures a fast, reliable and precise after-sale service. 95% of the company production is destined to be exported to different countries located over 5 continents. Our company has always given support to customers all over the world thanks to reliable planning of the mould and availability of spare parts which are guaranteed for 20 years.
