StackTeck Systems will display a variety of molds and plastic part in its booth, as well as the next generation of its Thin Recess Injection Molding (TRIM) technology for lightweight parts. This technology offers an L/T ratio (flow length to average wall thickness) of more than 500 and panel thickness of 0.010" (0.25 mm). According to the company, part weight savings of about 35 percent can be achieved using this technology.

The company also will have five molds running in equipment supplier booths. Among these, will be a large stack mold, two molds with in-mold labeling (IML) and a 24-cavity collapsing-core mold.
