StackTeck Announces FastTrack for Packaging Mold Deliveries
StackTeck Systems Ltd. announces FastTrack, a new approach to fast mold deliveries using automated design capabilities that work with a pre-set, optimized set of mold design rules.
StackTeck Systems Ltd. announces FastTrack, a new approach to fast mold deliveries using automated design capabilities that work with a pre-set, optimized set of mold design rules. As compared with custom designed molds, the engineering phase of every project will be reduced from three to four weeks to just a few days. The first phase that the company offers will cover single face molds for round lids and round air eject containers, with 2, 4, 6 or 8 cavities. Future development of this technology will cover a broader range of part types, as well as bigger cavitations and stack molds.
The company also adds a new mold proposal app for its sales team, so that the standardized products can be priced and mold concept diagrams can be provided to a customer in their own conference room, on the spot, with formal proposals provided within one business day. Mold deliveries for lid molds will be nine weeks, and containers will be 11 weeks, depending on size.
The design automation leads to the use of best practices in the mold design, which enables advantages of many standardized components that are normally considered custom in a custom designed mold. Benchmark mold design features are incorporated automatically into the mold, ensuring optimized cooling for maximum productivity and mold longevity.
Using aluminum tooling instead of traditional tools steels reduces cycle time and costs, but requires up-front, open communications between moldmaker, molder, material supplier and hot runner manifold supplier.
The 5S system is a working tool for ISO 9001:2015 that was developed to help mangers and work personnel systematically achieve greater organization, standardization, efficiency and safety in the workplace.
Within each person is unlimited creative potential to improve shop operations.
