ADVANCED EQUIPMENT & PROCESSES
Our laboratory and R&D facilities are equipped with ultramodern equipment, such as a Lab Capper, optimal 3D measuring device and advanced injection machines. Combined with our extensive expertise, these machines enable the continual design and improvement of original concepts. A high level CAD system allows complex designs, original shapes and creative styles to be simulated.

We enjoy close relationships with partners, including mould makers, resin producers, liner suppliers and capping and assembly machine manufacturers, with which we co-create for the future.
To complement our extensive expertise with high-speed production and large multi-cavity moulds, UNITED CAPS has developed, over many decades, means of creating additional value via other applications. These include In-mould labelling (IML), silkscreen printing, tampo-printing, offset, multi-component assembly, ultrasonic welding, folding/slitting Tamper evident bands, lining (food and non-food), bi-injection, thin-gauge parts.

Every year, UNITED CAPS is granted a number of patents for our innovative solutions. On average, we design and build 20 pilot moulds annually, 90 per cent of which will evolve into production moulds.
