Bebo Plastik has extended its pioneering In-Mould Label Thermoforming (IML-T) technology and developed a concept that includes the production of lids with the enhanced quality decoration. Using conventional lid forming machinery and with the ability for existing lid tools to be modified for IML-T manufacture, the introduction of the new technology provides food manufacturers with a cost-effective means of creating high impact packaging for premium branding and on-shelf appeal in competitive markets. IML-T applies pre-printed labels to a container during the thermoforming process, meaning intricate, multi-coloured designs in up to eight colours can be incorporated to achieve a better level of finish and greater coverage than with direct printing. In addition, IML-T for lids allows a more precise label positioning than conventional off-mould labelling, and different lid weights can be produced from the same tooling. The extension of this technology to lids now delivers a complete pack solution, with lightweight containers, high output lines and competitive tool costs offering an excellent return on investment. Typical applications for IML-T packs have included dairy products, salads and snacks.
