Durst Group Celebrates Milestone Installation at Mold-Tek Packaging Limited, Revolutionizing Digital Printing for In-Mold Labels

Durst Group, a global leader in industrial printing solutions, is excited to announce the successful integration of its cutting-edge technology at Mold-Tek Packaging Limited, a major player in the Indian packaging sector.
Established in 1986, Mold-Tek has grown to dominate with around 25% market share, over 2000 employees, 10 production plants, and a fleet of over 150 injection machines.

Specializing in manufacturing injection-molded containers for various uses, Mold-Tek is known for innovative solutions in paint and lube pails.
Mold-Tek's dedication to excellence is evident in its 100% backward integration, covering own molds and dies, robots, design studio, and In-Mold Labels (IML) through both analog and digital printing – a unique approach in the industry.
Recognizing the need for digital printing for high-quality In-Mold Labels, Mold-Tek partnered with Durst Group and Newgen Printronics - official partner for Durst Group in India - with specific objectives:
Just-in-time/Print on demand solutions
Short and medium runs
Variable data printing
Versatility and agility
Waste and energy reduction
In response, Durst Group provided the "Best in class" industrial solution – the RSCi 510mm with priming and varnishing stations. The first Flexo unit was equipped with UV and hot air dryers, offering versatility in coatings based on the end application.
Navigating the technical complexities of In-Mold Labeling presented challenges in material handling, tension control, drying and curing parameters, construction resistance, and static load throughout the production process. However, close collaboration among Mold-Tek, Newgen Printronics – the local distributor and Durst-Partner – and Durst by itself proved crucial in overcoming these challenges and ensuring project success.
This installation marks a significant milestone in the partnership between Durst Group and Mold-Tek Packaging, showcasing the seamless integration of advanced digital printing solutions into the rigid plastic packaging industry.
While additional challenges persist, the commitment of Mold-Tek, Newgen Printronics India, and Durst, supported by valued partners such as Schober Technologies, Actega, Michelman, and Jindal-Treofan, reinforces confidence in continued success and innovation in the field.
