StackTeck Systems has been responding to demands for increased volumes for medical applications, in one case delivering a stack mold solution in just three and a half weeks for Novolex. StackTeck leveraged all the advantages of hot runner and stack mold frame technology used to achieve high levels of productivity. In response to this urgent demand for medical parts needed in record time, the company delivered a production stack mold with a full hot runner for a face shield headband producing samples within three and a half weeks of the project start.
StackTeck CEO Vine Travaglini says, “We were challenged by Novolex to build a class 1 high performance stack mold in just four weeks to meet the demand to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. This project included complete mold design, manufactured molding surface components, assembly and mold qualification. We were able to produce samples molding with customer resin and colorant to final product specification, and we were proud to deliver even faster than requested.”
“StacktTeck truly delivered for us int he incredibly short timeframe we required to make the injection mold needed to produce face shields for healthcare and other frontline workers,” says Ken Meyers, vice president of operations for WNA, a Novolex company. “We’ve worked with and depended on StackTack technology for many years and our trust in their know-how was renewed yet again on this emergency project.”
