United Silicone revolutionized the decoration of deep reusable containers by providing an industry-leading 16-inch throat depth for hot stamp decoration in an affordable 2.5-ton system. We also offer all of the tooling and consumables necessary for quality decoration.

 

Typical applications include:

  • Residential Roll-out Carts
  • Recycling Totes & Bins
  • Commercial Refuse Cans
  • Medical Waste Containers
  • Pallets
  • Pails
Pails

Our pail decorating technologies are widely considered to best-in-class.

Industrial, commercial and consumer pails can be decorated with:

  • A single-color hot stamp foil for applying basic messages (such as a child warning label)
  • Vibrant, multi-color heat transfer labels offering 355° wrap capabilities
  • Manual load to fully automated hot stamp and heat transfer systems

Typical applications include:

  • Round plastic pails (1 – 6 gallon)
  • Square or rectangular plastic pails (1 – 6 gallon)
Pallets

Pallet branding requires equipment that provides part clearance to accommodate larger product dimensions and also takes into consideration the weight of the molded part.

United Silicone knows how to ensure simplified set up and consistent, repeatable decoration for reusable pallets thanks to our expertise in system configuration, customized tooling and stamping plate design.

Typical applications include:

  • Pallets (injection molded and structural foam)
Trays, Crates, Totes & Bins

Transport trays for beverage and food products, dairy crates and material handling bins all require different types of decorating technologies.  Identifying the optimal decoration solution depends on production needs, end user adhesion specifications, and container/decorating area geometries.

United Silicone will work with you to ensure your machine, tooling and consumable concepts exceed your expectations for quality, repeatability and durability.

Typical applications include:

  • Agricultural Crates
  • Bulk Boxes
  • Nestable Totes
  • Collapsible/Foldable Containers
  • Food Handling Containers
  • Beverage and Bakery Trays
  • Beverage Coolers
Sanitation Containers, Dispensers & Supplies

Markings on sanitation containers, dispensers and supplies need to meet certain adhesion requirements to withstand everyday use in a variety of applications.  In addition, decorating this wide range of part geometries requires targeted expertise whether running in an automated or manual setting.

Typical applications include:

  • Soap dispensers
  • Paper towel dispensers
  • Wet floor signs
  • Tilt, Utility & Cleaning Carts
  • Dustpans
  • Mop Buckets
  • Barriers

Greater Throat Depth = Cost Savings

  • US25-E Frame’s 16 inch throat depth represents a 60% increase in the throat depth formerly available from a 2.5 ton system
  • Previously decoration of “deep” bulk containers that need more than 10 inch throat depth required users to select a more costly 12 ton system
  • Can generate cost savings of up to 40% or roughly $20,000 per system

Custom Tooling Expertise

  • Precision tooling is the foundation of a successful hot stamp decoration.
  • The fixture holds the part in place, supports it for the pressure required in the stamping area and also locates/positions the part for repeatability.
  • Our unmatched custom tooling expertise will set your application up for success.

Superior Training

  • Unmatched training depth
  • On-site, classroom-based training sessions
  • Expert insights on tooling design/selection, consumable comparisons, machine set up/trouble shooting, art work set up

Additional Part Clearance

  • The US 25-E Frame system can accommodate parts up to 3x larger in size than traditional systems
  • Whereas traditional frames provide up to 16 inch part clearance, E-Frame and Reverse Mount applications allow for up to 52 inch clearance

Automation

  • Assistance with the ergonomics of handling large/heavy pallets
  • Solutions to take your pails from the mold to and through the decorating machine.
