RPC Bebo Plastik has won an award at the European Thermoforming Parts Competition for its in-mould label thermoforming (IML-T) technology.
The firm's IML-T tubs and lids walked off with first prize in the ‘Thin gauge – Food packaging applications' category at the event in Barcelona, earlier this month.
The award judges highlighted the wide label coverage that can be achieved, including the stacking rim of the pack and the option of barrier protection through the use of multilayer sheet, all of which can be delivered to existing tools.
The technology delivers a ‘complete pack' solution, with lightweight containers, high output lines and competitive tool costs.
The European Thermoforming Parts Competition was established in 2006 by the European Thermoforming arm of the Society of Plastics Engineers.
