IML automation for PLA coffee capsules debuts in the Americas.


Beck Automation of Switzerland is showing for the first time in the Americas an IML system for single-serve coffee capsules. Both the capsules and the labels (from Verstraete in Belgium) are of PLA biopolymer. The four-cavity mold is expected to run at 6-7 sec on a 120-m.t. Netstal Elion 1200 all-electric press. The cell includes a quality check with a vision system from IMDvista.
