Injectable and IML products

Let Dorfam produce all kinds of injectable and IML packaging!

Injectable polymer packaging and IML are some of the most common manufacturing methods used in various food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. Dorfam Company offers a wide range of these products with detailed designs for the owners of various manufacturing industries.

Injection Polymer Packaging

Polymer injection packaging is one of the common methods of manufacturing plastic bottles, cans and boxes. Machines called plastic injection machines are used for this purpose. In this method, the polymeric materials are injected into a steel mold after being heated and melted. After the part has cooled, the mold is opened and the final product is removed. This method is suitable for mass production of packaging products.

Polymer packaging by IML process

The IML industry is one of the branches of polymer packaging using injection molding. IML stands for In-Mold Labeling. In this method, the same label is placed in the injection mold before the robot starts the injection process. Then the injection process begins. In this way, the label becomes an integral part of the final product and gives a clean and beautiful look to the packaging product. Let us take a look at the advantages of this modern method:


Maximum print quality: the best way to print labels for IML is offset printing. This way, we can cover all sides of the trays with labels and create beautiful trays and uniform surfaces in terms of printing and design.

The high strength of labels: In the IML labeling method, the product has the highest resistance among all labeling methods. These labels are resistant to moisture and temperature, and you can wash them or put them in the refrigerator.

The combination of the two stages of production: The IML method combines the two steps of labeling and production of packaging containers. Therefore, the production time and the production cost of the packaging product are reduced.

Environmental friendliness: The IML method is environmentally friendly compared to other methods of polymer container production. In this method, the packaging and label are made from the same material and can be recycled at the same time.

Wide range of printing options: A wide variety of inks and colors can be used to print IML labels.

Quick design changes: With the IML method, you can change the label design at any stage of production due to the use of the offset process for label printing.

Vision of polymer packaging through injection processes and IML

At present, the share of IML containers in packaging products, especially in food packaging, is considerable, and the market demand is constantly increasing. The production of IML packaging containers increases the marketing opportunities of the final products due to the beauty and high quality of printing. Suppliers of all kinds of goods always need beautiful labels and containers that can best introduce the brand and product to the buyer; IML containers do this best.

Types of injection moulded and IML products in the packaging industry

Injection products are designed and manufactured based on the needs and desires of the manufacturer, the nature of the product to be packaged, and keeping in mind a suitable and customer-friendly design. Let us take a look at some applications of injectable products.

Hygienic and chemical packaging

IML injection molding can be used to produce various products such as bottles, hygienic and chemical containers. At Dorfam Company, we can offer you different types of these products or make your own product.

Packaging for food and dairy products

The production of food packaging is a challenge for food producers in terms of the type of food, the use of product packaging, and the variety of food. Meeting customers’ requirements and tastes and legal and health regulations are also crucial in this context.

Why do we use injection molding?

Injection molding technology has become an integral part of today’s world. Injection-molded products are used in various medical, military, pharmaceutical, health, and cosmetic industries, automotive, paint, communications, computers, cell phones, buildings, decorations, and toys. No matter where you look, you will undoubtedly see a trace of injectable products. We will explain some of the advantages of producing polymer packaging by injection molding.

High efficiency and fast production

Plastic injection molding is high-speed compared to other methods, and the high rate of production in this method makes it more efficient and cost-effective. The speed depends on the complexity and size of the mold, but the duration of a production cycle in this method is only between 15 and 120 seconds. Since the intervals between cycles are shorter, more parts can be produced in a limited time; therefore, potential sales and profits increase.

Design of complex parts

Plastic injection molds can produce millions of very complex and completely identical parts. Proper mold design is essential in this regard. With the knowledge and experience of mold designers and manufacturers, You can use injection molds effectively at high production rates. Some of the essential elements in mold design based on the shape of the part are Wall thickness, gear design, gating, and valve placement.

Increase the strength of the part

We are utilizing the property of pressurizing molten materials in injection molding results in the production of high-strength parts. Of course, this property also depends on other factors, such as the thickness of the part, the type of raw material, and the quality of the design.

The mold designer needs to know from the beginning that the part needs to be flexible or rigid so that he can design integrated ribs or grooves for it. It is also important to understand how the customer will use the part and what environment the part will be exposed to.

Variety in materials

Advances in polymers in recent years have led to a wider variety of raw materials for injectable manufacturing. The variety of raw materials also allows for more parts to be made with new uses in different industries. Some of the properties that various raw materials can improve are Impact strength, tensile strength, dissolution resistance, flexural elasticity.

Variety in color

There are various ways to color injection-molded plastic products that appeal to customers in the packaging industry. Plastic parts can be colored using various methods, each of which has its advantages and disadvantages. The use of masterbatches, pigment blends, liquid colors, and colored resins are the four most common methods for coloring these parts.
