StackTeck expands options for shorter lead times in FastTrack

Canadian tooling supplier StackTeck Systems has added on 12 and 16 cavity mould configurations for lids and round containers to its FastTrack programme. StackTeck’s FastTrack approach consists of fast mould deliveries, using automated design capabilities that work with a pre-set, optimised set of mould design rules.

As compared with custom designed moulds, the engineering phase of every project is reduced from three to four weeks to just a few days. StackTeck is now offering single face moulds for round lids and round air eject containers, with 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 16 cavities.

StackTeck can manufacture all major mould components in-house, which avoids potential logistical risks. According to Vince Travaglini, President/CEO, “Today many of our customers are directing us to keep our supplier base local, as part of the overall onshoring trend, to eliminate ‘surprises’ caused by uncertain times – this approach can be followed entirely for FastTrack moulds. For any converter in the Americas, this is the surest way to add capacity in a big hurry.”

Some of the most important advantages of FastTrack include:

  • Rapid mould configuration
  • Significantly reduced quoting and lead times
  • Immediate feedback to customers of possible design difficulties
  • Range of options available that include: price, size, layouts and machine configurations
  • Optimal mould size and cavitation that fit a particular injection moulding machine
  • Faster customer response and mould deliveries

StackTeck’s Vice President of Sales, Simon Martin, explains, “With our FastTrack approach, we are able to provide mould concept diagrams to customers that are in current need of fast deliveries, allowing us to have formal proposals in their hands within one business day. Account managers can generate specific mould sizes and configurations in only a few minutes, helping customers find an optimal mould set up. Responding to customers’ needs during this global pandemic, we offer full on remote access and interactions that result in fast proposals, approvals and production moulds running at their plants in a shorter amount of time”.
