StackTeck to share its iMFLUX know-how

The process control method can help overcome the challenges of recycled materials.

To help its customers overcome the challenges of molding recycled materials, StackTeck Systems Ltd. is introducing services to support the iMFLUX process. 

StackTeck has embraced the patented iMFLUX technology as a process control method capable of handling large and sudden material property variations in real time. After qualifying a range of PCR resin grades using iMFLUX, StackTeck has received permission from Procter & Gamble to use and share this know-how that can be applied to any iMFLUX-capable injection molding machine. 

“We are taking a long-term view on this initiative,” said Vince Travaglini, president and CEO of the Brampton, Ontario-based manufacturer of high-volume injection molding solutions. “We have been dealing with PCR resins for specialty products like flowerpots, paint cans, and rPET preforms for water bottles for many years. However, today we see a much broader demand for it. ... We see this as a strategically important step towards helping our customers move to more sustainable products.” 

Hamilton, Ohio-based iMFLUX is a wholly owned subsidiary of Procter & Gamble Co. Its processing software integrates machine learning to allow equipment to run more reliably with fewer operator adjustments.
