In-mold labeling is a process that used for decorating. It allows the printed label inserting to plastic injection mould and fusing with the product. As a brand-new label packaging form, it's popular in the injection molding industry for a few years and widely applied in packaging, houseware, and furniture products.


In Mold Labeling


Compared to the classical labeling solution, In mold labeling has the below advantages:

  • Relabeling machine or printing machine, simplify the manufacture process, improve the productivity

  • Colorful and flat surface, strengthening the product's surface and improving the quality

  • Safe and environmental friendly, without secondary printing contamination, both label and product could be recycled

  • Difficulty of process is high, strong anti-counterfeiting abilityfew years and widely applied in packaging, houseware and furniture products.

CASE STUDY:

IN MOLD LABELING LAUNDRY BASKET

CHALLENGES

Laundry basket fully covered by IML, it has an attractive but complete. Since IML requires high accuracy, fixing method and shrinkage rate of label are considerable issues during the in-mold decoration process.

FAQS ABOUT IN-MOLD LABELING

Q How to prevent label shift during in-mold labeling injection molding?

+
-
A

In the in-mold labeling process, due to the flow of material in the cavity, easy to make the label warped or displaced. In order to avoid such problems, first of all in the mold design process to reasonably consider the label limit boundary. Secondly, static electricity should be imported before labeling to firmly adsorb the label on the surface of the mold.

Q What's the material requirement for In-mold labeling?

+
-
A

Now, almost all the injection molding grade thermoplastic materials are applicable for in-mold labeling. According to various demands, the label industry develops labels in different materials and with different functions. While make in-mold labeling plan, except for the application of products, we also need to consider the contractility of label and product's material. 

Q What's the difference between IML mould and general mould?

+
-
A

It's needed to make modification of product and mould during the design process. To satisfy the need of automatic production of In-mold label, we should consider the way of label placement and fixing. Second, since the product's quality is highly related to label's effect, in-mold labeling injection molding has higher requirement in material and temperature control in the mould testing. We usually need more mould testing times to adjust the size of label.  

Q Could in-mold labeling injection molding achieve automatic production?

+
-
A

Yes. The label placing process could be operated by coded robot, which is also able to integrate labeling and pick-up modules. It could also help with saving cost and improving productivity.
