IML Process

IML Process

In-Mould-Labelling, known for short as IML, is the most efficient and effective method of decoration for plastics packaging. This process is very exact, requiring high-speed and precision robots to place a pre-printed label into the mold at the same time that the raw material is being injected, resulting in the generation of the finished article during a single-step manufacturing process.


The application of IML technology to your packaging has several advantages over conventional decoration techniques:

  • Elimination of the post-production process of decorating and therefore its time and cost.
  • High-quality image.
  • Outstanding durability.
  • Wide range of design and graphic options.
  • Environment-friendly product generation: package and label compatibility facilitates recycling. 
  • As the finished article is then removed from the mold by a high-speed robot the hygiene of the product is maintained.
