A new thermoformed tamper-evident food package is the first use of innovative trim-and-place tooling said to provide greater accuracy and manufacturing efficiency. German toolmaker Marbach Group worked with thermoformer RPC Bebo Plastik GmbH, Bremervoerde, Germany, to develop a matchedmetal, steel-rule-die tool for a new 1-liter PS ice-cream container for German dairy company Humana Milchunion Group. Until now, a post-trim downstream step was required to create the tamper-evident tab. The new tooling features an extra insert in the cutting punch that creates a channel and tab around the rim of the container, which acts as a seal for the lid. According to Hubert Kittelmann, president of Marbach Tooling & Equipment, Elkhart, Ind., this feature adds tool cost but boosts accuracy, reduces shrinkage, and facilitates automatic filling.

    New cost-effective technologies are designed to make aluminum an attractive alternative to tool steels in a range of plastics molding processes. One method uses a plasma technique to convert the aluminum surface into a hard, dense, wear-resistant ceramic. Another approach uses electro-deposition to apply a surface coating with high hardness, corrosion resistance, and chemical resistance.
