Moulds for IML containers

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 50 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.

  • In this field the flexibility of the manufacturing plant assured by our patented technology "FlexoMould®" represents a great advantage.

  • Design of the container according to the customer’s needs.

  • Moldflow simulations.

  • Definition of the design from shape to label.

  • Optimization of the product weight.

  • Optimization of the product palletisation, calculation of the stacking and pile-up resistance.

  • Analysis and realization of the cooling system by means of advanced technologies, SLM type (select laser melting) in order to speed-up the cycle times.

  • Integration and testing on site with customer’s presence through extended tests under completely realistic production conditions.
