Comtec IPE designs and develops closure products and the integrated manufacturing systems to improve operational costs and FMCG sales and marketing. The complete production cells demanded by the closure manufacture industry must be able to produce consistent, high-quality parts. Our integrated manufacturing systems include technologies and engineering that produce high-quality parts with a high-yield.

our process

To ensure that everything is right from the start, we advise you in detail from the concept stage onwards. Each system is designed and manufactured for long-life, with high-quality materials & components for any closure application including those requiring post mould processes. A Comtec IPE integrated manufacturing system is fully installed in your factory, ready to make your parts.

specialist partners

Comtec IPE is a proud partner with F&S Tool, Inc., an American mould-maker with a state of the art facility and equipment. Vast experience in the design and manufacture of small to very large cavitation (128-cavity) single face, stack, and compression moulds, including: • tamper evident closure moulds • unscrewing moulds • flip top moulds – with or without in-mould closing • collapsible core moulds • bump off moulds • multi-component moulds

Our long standing partnership with Arburg GmbH & Co KG, one of Europe’s leading injection moulding machine manufacturers, provides Comtec IPE with a range of high-quality injection moulding machines specifically designed and developed for the demands of fast cycle times and the injection moulding of closures.

The high-performance automated systems from Tampoprint AG are suitable for printing the upper side and circumference of closure caps of any size. The most modern laser systems also allow the variable labelling of plastic closures, crown caps or containers. Today, these automated systems print 50 million closure caps per hour – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Eckel & Sohn Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, provides 50 years of experience in specialist Assembly, Sorting, Feeding, and Inspection machines for a diverse range of closures, such as caps, screw caps, or multi-fold forms for bottles, glasses and cans.

automation & ancillaries

Comtec IPE integrates high-speed mechanical Automation systems that are perfectly matched to the mould to form a highly repeatable and accurate production process. Specialising in: • cap slitting • tamper evident band inverting systems • wadding & sealing • post mould part cooling • part printing • laser marking • vision systems • chiller systems • material handling systems • part storage • unique product identification systems

support, training & expertise

Comtec IPE is committed to assisting its customers achieve maximum manufacturing equipment up-time. Comtec IPE’s Service Technicians are factory certified, field experienced and are equipped with detailed checklists describing what and how the pieces of equipment need servicing. Technicians have access to specialist maintenance tools and software, maintenance databases, engineering design teams, and multiple technology experts. Our process trainers are experienced in the requirements of closure moulding and automation, to ensure that your process remains optimised.

unique technology

Comtec IPE works closely with the providers of the latest technologies in the field, to ensure that your products can match the developing trends in the market, and offer quality and shelf life bents to your customer.

F&S Tool’s patented core cooling technology dramatically improves mould surface temperatures, to provide improved cycle times.

Priamus Fill Control works to automatically balance the fill of each cavity during the production process. The patented system automatically adjusts the hot-runner nozzle temperature settings based on the fill time in each individual cavity. <learn more>

Ritemp cooled hot-halves enable cooling in places where it has traditionally been extremely difficult or impossible to regulate temperature. Ritemp design principles result in a thermal balance between plates by enabling even steel conditions between cooling chamber and heated component, leading to a more balanced filling of cavities. Ritemp hot halves show significantly improved part weight range in multi-cavity moulds, as well as water consumption and energy savings. <learn more>

Integrated ‘Barrier Technology’ systems and moulds enable the production of a single piece closure that offers product freshness protection, by utilising multi-layer injection moulding to include a moisture, gas and light barrier. This provides significant cost savings against the current two-piece method that requires a secondary process to add a barrier seal. <learn more>
