Production & Technology
Since the beginning of the nineties, Cups4you (formerly Vadeal Plastics) has been a specialist in injection moulding for thin-walled packaging in combination with In Mould Labelling (IML). The term is derived from the technology: a pre-printed polypropylene (PP) label is placed in a mould that is shaped like the end product.
During the injection moulding process, the injection moulding machine heats the PP until it is a liquid mass, which is then injected into the mould under high pressure. Special peripheral equipment is used to place the pre-printed label in the mould just before it closes. The mould closes and the liquid melts with the label and then cools very fast to a fixed temperature. In a matter of seconds, the injection moulding machine and the peripheral equipment produce packaging with a unique appearance from one type of material. Injection moulding gives us freedom of design, making it possible to create detailed packaging.
To achieve this, Cups4you works with highly reputed suppliers. The modern peripheral equipment, with pneumatic and servomotors, is developed and built by our own people. We also work with local technical schools.
